As if Palestine domestic and social media incitement wasn’t enough, the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva convened a special session, giving Mahmoud Abbas a world stage to glorify Palestinian terrorism. Palestine is not a member of the organization and their request could have been easily turned down. But the UNHRC chose to hold it. Thus, “The role of the Council in fanning the flames of conflict and assisting in the dissemination of lies is now well established,” commented Israel’s Ambassador to the UNHRC Eviatar Manor.
Human rights is clearly not a priority among the UNHRC members who in September elected a Saudi to head the UN Human Rights panel, an appointment which, by the way was welcomed by the US Dept of State.
Why would anyone promote horrific Palestinian incitement to kill Israelis? See below some recent examples.
Today the UNHRC invites Abbas to promote killing of Jews in Israel. How long before the it will endorse the Killing of Americans by ISIS or other jihadist?
The following are examples of encouragement of terrorism in the Palestinian media and social media, as reported by the Meir Amit Terrorism and Information Center on October 27, 2015.
- This week as well the Palestinian social networks posted propaganda inciting stabbing and vehicular attacks against IDF soldiers and Israeli civilians. It focused on the glorification of Palestinian terrorists from the Hebron region who carried out stabbing and vehicular attacks (Facebook pages of Khalil Online and Beit ‘Awwa, October 22-25, 2015).
