1. Only in the Bizzaro World of UN
Marty ,   Toronto Canada   (02.26.13)
Let's not probe approx 70K dead in Syria but let's tell Israel to stage an investigation of the death of one individual. I think the UN's Political Chief has his tinfoil hat on a bit too tight.
2. The UN
NIgel ,   London   (02.26.13)
The more I hear of this Mickey Mouse body, the more I believe it is time for the sane countries in the world to walk away from it. I cannot fathom any logic in this or their promotion of Syria and Muritania to governing roles on Human RIghts bodies. Time for a change
3. Oh, for pity's sake!
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.27.13)
There's a monumental crisis in Syria and a whole host of other places, and the United Nations has nothing better to do than call for another investigation into the death by cardiac arrest of a security prisoner in Israel's custody. There's already been an autopsy. I think that Israeli forensic pathologists are pretty good at what they do. Perhaps the family would like to dig him up and send his rotting corpse to France or Switzerland or wherever the terrorist for whom Jaradat is named is being autopsied. And the United Nations did not "condemn" the missile attack upon Israel; they called it "troubling." Israel's response to the United Nations should be short. Two words. I'll leave it the reader to figure out what those two words are.
4. To UN: He died. End of story. Bug off.
David ,   Hartford USA   (02.27.13)
5. phony UN by inaction all over the world is responsible for..
JJJ   (02.27.13)
Israel as a Republic Banana, will not stand in the UN and say, we will investigate right after all your favorite countries, like Afghanistan, Pakistan, USA, France, UK, and all the Arab countries which kill tens of thousands of civilians, Israel will investigate, but you phony UN, by inaction all over the world is responsible for Millions of innocent people being murdered
6. Independent & transparent?
Robert ,   Australia   (02.27.13)
Yes, the UN should be ridiculed for expecting that of Israel.
7. UN is a complete waste of time & $$$, a farce.
Australia   (02.27.13)
Its clearly run by the world's miscreants and apologists. The hypocrisy and skewed priorities is staggering. Our country is spending billions to lick with this crowd of nincompoops.
8. Interesting - we don't tell anyone else what to do !
Barbara ,   Haifa Israel   (02.27.13)
What right do these people (UN and others) have ? Maybe I'll tell the U.S. they should stop selling guns to everyone ? etc.
9. did the un
demnd of the usa and britain, france and germany to probe their deadly drone missile attacks that killed hundreds in pakistan and afghanistan????? hundreds of innocent civilians were maimed and killed, including entire families and young children by american drones and missiles lobbed at them by france and england and the usa. did the un demand a clear, impartial and immediate investigation of these innocent people killings by drones from these three nations?? i wonder why not? is it only israel that should immediately provide a transparent investigation or should the demand also be made to the usa, france and england. also, did the un ever demand of turkey to investigate its bombardment and killings of innocent kurds in turkey? why not?

Charles ,   Petach Tikva   (02.27.13)

11. 3 Sarah B, USA/Israel
Cipora Julianna Kohn ,   Z   (02.27.13)
jeffrey feltman speaks arabic, french and hungarian. he was previously assigned to the consulate in jerusalem. he worked for martin indyk at the embassy in ta, supervising economy of gaza. nasrallah called the late siniora government the feltman government. he is the only person who has weekly video conferences with susan rice.
12. "projectiles fired from Gaza"
Cipora Julianna Kohn ,   Z   (02.27.13)
jeffrey feltman thinks that grad missiles and Fajr-5 missiles are "projectiles." he is a typical product of the arabist us state department.
13. #6 robert- another one of your ridiculous posts
solomon ,   bklyn   (02.27.13)
14. During the Yom Kippur War,
Reuven   (02.27.13)
a Syrian soldier, from alweppo, beheraded 28 Israeli prisoners. Where was the UN demand for an investigation then?
15. Israel - one dead terrorist Syria- 90,000 dead civilians
Barry ,   Tokyo   (02.27.13)
Where's the outcry? The only difference, one is a convicted Jew-hating criminal, the others, useful idiots.
16. To: No. 6
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (02.27.13)
He died of a cardiac arrest. The broken ribs were incurred in the course of performing CPR. That happens in about 60% of cases, by the way. Cardiac resuscitation is a pretty heavy handed process. The burn marks on his chest came from the use of the defibrillator. Seems to me that every effort was made to revive this piece of terrorist trash. Your hatred of the State of Israel and the Jewish people blinds you to the obvious. That makes you pathetic.
17. #666
fred ,   earth   (02.27.13)
Yes, the UN should be ridiculed for expecting of others that which it is so sorely lacking itself.
18. Pollard dies with 6 broken bones in neck, spine, arms, legs
Steve Benassi ,   Silver Bay, MN USA   (02.27.13)
...close your eyes and imagine that Arafat Jaradat is Jonathan Pollard.
19. 8 What right do they have?
lydia ,   Brisbane   (02.27.13)
Israel clambered to join the organization so go read the UN Charter and the terms and conditions of membership and stop acting like a goat head.
20. 3 ANOTHER investigation into Israel's Abu Graib
lydia ,   Brisbane   (02.27.13)
Should be troubling to every decent individual. However if your lot are prepared to sweep the circumstances around Zygier's death under the carpet, the World still demands an explanation for the untimely death of each and every unarmed civilians under Israels illegal and racist occupation.
21. 2. The recent 138:9 UN mandate is a warning
lydia ,   Brisbane   (02.27.13)
A warning that despite the bullying, cajoling and bribes, Israel could not muster up more 9 votes. Only 9 member nations sided with Israel illegal occupation against the Palestinians 138. If you don't like the rules don't take part in the game..
22. So the UN wants every country to probe every prison death...
Zvi   (02.27.13)
... right? 10,000s of prisoners die every year in custody in the prisons of the members of the UN Human Rights Council. START WITH THEM. Let those who are without sin cast the first stone, yeah?
23. Why? Doesn't any country trust israel?
24. jeffrey feltman
the un political secretary IS A JEW. i have news for you disgusting jew, israel did a probe asap when this arab died and concluded that he died of a cardiac arrest. do you not trust your jewish brothers in israel? have you made similar requests of turkey killings of kurds, obama drones killing of afganis, england and france sending foot soldiers and drones to benghazi and lybia and afghanistan killing hundreds of innocent families? have you, jewish bastard????
25. Singular investigations
Gee ,   Zikron Yaakov   (02.27.13)
According to the British government over 3,000 people are estimated to have died in suspicious circumstances in custody since 1969 in the UK. Has the UN ever investigated a single one of those? The truth is more people die in British custody per year than in our entire history. Something is really wrong with that
26. "Israel to UN :get lost and self destruct in
DT ,   TA Israel   (02.27.13)
the process" You are 100% waste, failure and bigotry .
27. Probe
Enoch ,   Toronto   (02.27.13)
Lets see, is there more than one prisoner that died in jail anywhere in the world? Is there a probe request for one that died outside Israel? If there is no such a probe then the UN should be told in very uncertain terms to FO.
28. what cynicism, what hypocricy
HaifaGuy   (02.27.13)
A truly vomifying experience reading this item.
29. Flatten Gaza enough is enough !!!!!! We are Frayerim if we
David ,   Israel   (02.27.13)
Don't!!! We cannot continue to go on like this and allow it to happen, it only makes their actions seem more and more legitimate! I will be the first to volunteer for reserves if there is a real operation set
30. About time someone probed the death of UN, the corpse is sti
tom ,   tel aviv   (02.27.13)
