"As an Israeli committee member I cannot sit on committee meetings regarding Israel ...." He's going to have a lot of days off ....
2. Take your vitamins, drink plenty of water!
Rhonda ,   Chicago, USA   (09.07.12)
Please take your vitamins, have your annual medical checkup to ensure your health and well being. Drink plenty of water. Go light on the caffeine. The UN can tear a person apart especially anyone associated with the "Israeli Enterprise." so take care of yourself and do your best, the later we know you would do! Best Wishes and Happy New Year!
3. "A token Jew?"
Big bad Jew ,   United States   (09.07.12)
While he must be brilliant, why will he not be allowed to have any input when it comes to Israel? Is that selection reserved strictly for muslims and 'moon' pies?
4. I shutter to imagine
Paul ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (09.07.12)
what the criteria of hatred for Zionism one must have to join this committee. Any Jew on this committee, will not, can not, have any positive effect on the politicize Human Rights efforts of the UN. It's the George Soros's of the world that end up turning against Jews to rub shoulders with the enemy.
5. Poor man is window dressing...
big bad Jew ,   United States   (09.07.12)
However highly educated, he's in a hell of a position.

to the rest of the middle east countries, be heavily involved sir.
8. History, facts on the ground and numerous reports & studies
James   (09.07.12)
have proven that (1) isreal is not a democracy, 20% of its population is denied FULL citizenship and (2) it is an racist, apartheid govrnment. All israli product, not just form settlements, should be boycotted.

aaron ,   toronto,canada   (09.07.12)
So they will never hear Israel's side of any arguement brought forth against it which is their they can gang up on Israel and say that israel is part of the committee,WOW GREAT.
11. may be it's only me...
les ,   canada   (09.07.12)
but the good professor instead of celebrating, should have refused the "honour". it would be an insult to sit on a committe which constantl attacks israel, and defends terrrorists murdering jewish civilians.
12. "Special challenges faced by...Israel" are self-induced
Steven Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (09.07.12)
...due to lack of democracy in all of Palestine today, the settlement enterprise in the West Bank, and the ghettoization of Gaza, which started with the 1948 ethnic cleansing of Palestine.

Do you really think anyone cares about your spewing of leftist crap? Get a life.
14. To: Les at No. 11
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (09.07.12)
No. It isn't only you. I agree with you completely -- the good professor should have disdained the appointment. The UNHR is worthy only of contempt.
