U.N. Human Rights Council President Rebukes Pro-Israel Speech as Disrespectful (The Washington Free Beacon)
The president of the United Nations Human Rights Council made a point on Tuesday to chide a pro-Israel speech as undignified and disrespectful, but he did not criticize a single anti-Israel remark, of which there were many at a council meeting in Geneva.
Vojislav Šuc, permanent representative of Slovenia to the U.N. Office at Geneva, currently serves as the Human Rights Council's president. During Tuesday's council meeting, Šuc singled out a rare pro-Israel voice before the body for criticism.
Anne Bayefsky of the Touro Institute on Human Rights & the Holocaust read a speech to the body in which she recounted how Jordanians defecated on Jewish graves while controlling the Old City of Jerusalem from 1948 to 1967.
