Chairman: UN unbalanced towards Israel

Chairman of UN Human Rights Council Doru Costea says body was concentrating too much on human rights violations by Israel. ‘Council must look at the stance of all sides, not only one country,’ he states

The UN Human Rights Council has failed to handle the Israeli-Palestinian conflict in a balanced fashion, the council’s chair Doru Costea said in an interview published Saturday.

Costea suggested in the interview with the daily Le Temps that the council was concentrating too much on human rights abuses by Israel, adding that he was dissatisfied.

“On this point, the council has failed,” he said, days after US President George W. Bush attacked the body for perceived anti-Israeli bias.

“The council must remain simple, and concentrate on the human rights dimension, but it must look at the stance of all sides, not only one country.”

Costea said that the majority of the 47 seats held by Asian and African countries on the council “gives a certain power, but that does not mean that this power is always used wisely.”

    Wow! No wonder it’s been cooler in Atlanta. I actually had to put a jacket on my son this morning.
