Briefing on the human rights situation in the OPT including use of excessive force by Human Rights Watch, Amnesty, Al Haq – UNHQ 18 October 2016
Finally! The UN will look at use of excessive force by Human Rights Watch, Amnesty and Al Haq!
The Working Group of CEIRPP will organise a briefing on Tuesday, 18 October 2016 on the current human rights situation in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including the use of excessive force by Israeli security forces, and the need for accountability.
Aw. It was just a dangling participle.
The invited speakers will be Ms. Sarah Leah Whitson, Executive Director of the MENA Division, Human Rights Watch; Amnesty International, Ms. Marya Farah and Ms. Aseil Abu-Baker, Legal Research and Advocacy Officers, Al Haq. The briefing will be followed by a Q&A session. The briefing will be held in the ECOSOC Chamber, at United Nations Headquarters in New York between 11 am and 12 pm.
Apparently, these “human rights” groups will not mention for a moment that Jews have been, and are still being, slaughtered by Palestinians.
Because shooting grandmothers, as happened this week, is apparently not “excessive force.” they deserve it if they are guilty of the crime of being Jewish in “Palestine.”

I’d love to attend, but by sheer coincidence, it occurs during a Jewish holiday next week. But maybe some f you would like to attend as an EoZ correspondent.
By the way, the CEIRPP is the “Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People” which has held 377 internal UN meetings and has had hundreds of external meetings as well over the past 41 years.
And that’s just one of the many anti-Israel committees at the UN.
We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
