The United Nations has voted to condemn Israel dozens of times, prompting the United States and Israel to depart UNESCO, reports Joseph Farah’s G2 Bulletin.
UNESCO repeatedly has condemned Israel while granting membership to the Palestinians and naming ancient Jewish sites as Palestinian heritage sites. WND reported UNESCO designated the Temple Mount, the likely site of the original Jewish temples during biblical times, with Muslim names.
The agency has been described as a “crucible for anti-Israel bias.”
So it’s surprising that a U.N.-affiliated organization would release a report condemning Hamas, an opponent of Israel and the governing body in the adjacent and highly disputed Gaza Strip, for its human rights violations.
Breaking News Israel reported the information from the Al Mezan Center for Human Rights.
The center is a recognized human-rights nongovernmental organization that has a special consultative status in the United Nations.
A monitor of the NGO groups has revealed the center itself isn’t neutral, having labeled Israeli policies as “apartheid,” accusing Israel of “ethnic cleansing” and “war crimes,” and pursuing a “nakba” (catastrophe) narrative, which is how Israel’s critics describe the creation of the Jewish state.
The center, nevertheless, issued a report that between March 1, 2018, and March 1, 2019, the Hamas security service violated the rights of hundreds.
The agency “summoned, arrested and detained 742 people, including five women, for exercising their beliefs,” BIN reported.
