Will the UNHRC be reviewing any of the Muslim or African country's where turmoil, murder and terrorism is a daily occurrence? Will the UNHRC issue an equal number of critical reports on any nation's other then Israel? I think not and till they start to act as a responsible and fair minded body I would hope that all democratic nation's have the courage to stand up and be counted along with Israel.
2. UN.
3. Hopefully other nations will follow
Mira ,   Vienna   (01.30.13)
until only the hypocrite Muslim nations remain to bring down this useless and futile and biased "institutions" of UN!
4. #1 Well said
Keren ,   IL-BR   (01.30.13)
Not only.Muslims have blatantly invaded Africa lands,displacing Africans ,among other things happening in the world, and UN is absolutely quiet about , but has incessantly sigling out Israel. Enough is enough.
5. Why should Israel attend?
Keren ,   IL-BR   (01.30.13)
To receive its "annual slug in the face"? No! Enough!
6. Only got them selves to blame
Lee ,   Leeds   (01.30.13)
If other countries (who actually should be investigated) decide to shun this body then the Human Rights Council only have themselves to blame. Had they not singled out Israel in unfair and blatant manner then they would not have this situation. Well done Israel and DO NOT participate until they show they can act fairly.
7. That decisive move is long OVERDUE !
Chris Rettenmoser ,   Bayerisch Gmain Germ   (01.30.13)
THE UN IS ISRAELS SWORN ENEMY ! It must be treated like that ! Israel will come out victorious and those PHONIES will be the sidelined LOOSERS ! ***NOBODY NEEDS THEM***
8. UNHRC: "Israel, if you don't co-operate, we're
A ,   Belgium   (01.30.13)
going SOMETHING!" Any organization that begins with the 2 letters UN, including the United Nothings itself, is a farce.
9. When is the UNHRC ....
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (01.30.13)
... planning to inspect Syria and the [not so much] "Democratic" Republic of the Congo? How about Myanmar? And several dozen other countries with documented and dismal human rights records? Oh, not on their travel list? What's the matter? No bars and nightclubs and five-star hotels anywhere EXCEPT Israel? Well, the UNHRC is going to have to hold their annual hatefest somewhere else, and focus on a different target -- you, know -- a REAL one. There are, after all, so many ....
10. The UN and the UNHRC are the most
Isac   (01.30.13)
despicable international organizations and should be treated as such. Good for you Israel. It was about time!!!! To the U.S.: kick them finally out of NY and build some nice high rise condos at their place.
11. Settlements have destroyed Israel's credibility
Now whenever Israel says that Arabs don't want peace or don't want to recognize Israel, everybody just rolls their eyes. Israel may be right but it has destroyed its credibility.
12. Syria Egypt Libya Mali .. but Israel is in the spotlight LOL
Alan   (01.30.13)
13. First we disintegrate the UNHRC, then the UN
tiki ,   belgium   (01.30.13)
Finally Israel is doing what it should have done a long time ago! To give back it's mandate of 'Whipping Boy to the International community of Human Rights abusers! Sadly, without Israel this whole 'human rights enterprise starts to be a lot less attractive. Where else can they put their focus on? On Iran, Irak, Afghanistan, Syria, Lybia, Pakistan, Turkey, Congo, Hamastan, Egypt, Syria, the international community of 'freedomfighters, the "State of Palestine" or GB, France & friends occupying and fighting wars in places where they shouldn't be.....just to mention a few.
14. This is so funny
Ivor Evenbiggergun   (01.30.13)
The light unto nations has decided that it doesn't wish to be held accountable. It will be interesting to see if the Unted States Government will now cut it's aid package like they did when Egypt did the same thing
15. Why in the world is Israel still
Paul ,   Jerusalem, Israel   (01.30.13)
in the midst of that degenerate, arena of lies and madmen, get out of the UN already?! Then we can all watch it collapse, since its only purpose is an allusion of civility.
BUILD BABY BUILD ,   United States   (01.30.13)
It's about time Israel ignored her 'Israel' only persecutors. Enough is enough! Go do some fact finding in Syria or the "Arab Spring" nations in complete chaos and revolt.
17. Salaries in Palestinian Pockets
Israelit ,   Israel   (01.30.13)
Since 95% of the construction workers and contractors are Palestinian Arabs, they have income to support their families. Wonder if the UNhrc takes that into consideration.
18. Mine #5
Keren ,   IL-BR   (01.30.13)
"annual SLAP in the face"
19. # 14 Egypt is the Muslim Brotherhood.
BUILD BABY BUILD ,   United States   (01.30.13)
a terrorist organization. Only HAMAS is being charged with "Crimes against Humanity" by Human Watch Rights. Not Israel not Egypt. ( Egypt is still in revolt and how many Egyptians have died so far? )
20. # 11 RIGHT IS MIGHT!!!!!
BUILD BABY BUILD ,   United States   (01.30.13)
And the "Arab Spring" brings credibility to Arabs? LOL BUILD BABY BUILD !!!!!!!
21. #7 chris
friend of israel ,   londonderry nireland   (01.30.13)
entirely agree with everything you have said. ignore the UN, enemies of israel, three cheers for Israel, No Surrender
22. I suppose the enforced sterilisation of...
Robert ,   Australia   (01.30.13)
Ethiopian Jews is no reason why Israel should participate.
23. Judea and Samaria?
Mark ,   U.S.   (01.30.13)
Judea and Samaria the "Unsolved Crime Scene of Old", and as a theif returns to the "Scene of a Crime", you people are trampling on an "Unsolved Crime Scene", Let Jehovah do his work. Poor, poor Hebrews of Old,,,, Genesis 15:14 "And That Nation That They Serve I will Punish", we'll wait, we'll see, its coming its close.
24. # 7 Chris - in a nutshell UN needs to change!
Son Of Cyrus ,   UK   (01.30.13)
Well said Chris!
25. #22 Aussie
Jorge ,   Argentina/USA/Israel   (01.30.13)
Israel is being single out in that club of dictators. 47 countries which human rights are very obscure do not have the right to slap in the face to Israel. Every year the club of right is worthless and worthless. When they cancel the permanent agenda against Israel, it will have credibility, in the main time they can go and fk themselves.
26. Israel should be sanctioned
paco ,   Canada   (01.30.13)
27. Like many things
Ethan ,   Eilat   (01.30.13)
The UN is such a good idea. Like many things individuals screw it up..
28. #25 Did you ignore commenting.....
Robert ,   Australia   (01.30.13)
.....on the forced sterilisation of Ethiopian Jews in Israel? I remember another state where that was performed, it lost WWII.
29. This Israeli decision should embarrass Jews everywhere
Mark ,   Cleveland USA   (01.30.13)
Others do wrong so our sins should be forgiven? Is that really the best argument? The settlements are a danger to the world Jewish community. The Israelis might support them, but most of the world does not. They should be torn down, and a real peace negotiation, based on a two state solution should be negotiated. Israelis can't continue to use every excuse to grab more land and keep the Palestinians in cages.
30. To #29
Rodney ,   C.T. SA.   (01.30.13)
BLA, BLA, BLA. You don't have a clue what you are talking about. You are just another member of the Jew hatred mob.
