1. This "blacklist" is a BDS list
Alexander Scheiner ,   Israel   (10.26.17)
and is unrelated to "Human Rights" and unrelated to the well-being of Falastinians.

It is purest anti-Semitism and the Muslim al-Hussein, yimach shemo, is abusing his position at the UN. He is an anti-Semite and MUST be SUED, because he is following personal reasons as a Muslim.
2. list schmist! $ talks B(D)S walks!
because we all know that in the financial world what counts is political stability and financial innovation.
(take for example what has happened in Catalonia in 26 days 1200 companies have left the region. Why? because the Catalan independence movement has created political instability which is hampering financial innovation. That is the Catalan's have been hoisted by their own petard, same thing will happen with the UN and this list. Wait and see)
3. WHY?
Robert ,   Israel   (10.26.17)
Maybe we should really leave all those conflictive places. Stop giving service and employment to the people in the West Bank, east J'lem, Jordan Valley. They will surely find the way as to survive with much better salaries paid by the palestinian authority and by hamas. Hamas must have its own hidden top technologies and industries as to keep their nationals working for a good salary and a better future than they have now while working for "the enemy"..
I don't really know why we insist so much in giving them work. They don't want it !!!. Their leaders prefer palestinians dieing from hunger than having a decent work provided by their enemies. Their leader's biggest problem is that a happy palestinian is not good for their cause.
4. The U.N not useless after all
Rob ,   Boston, Mass   (10.26.17)
Those in the know, know that the U.N has been Israel's advertising agency since the fraudulent "state's" creation. Pro con, however you look at it these companies sure get their exposure and minutes of a fame.
FO ,   Belgium   (10.26.17)
Continue obstinately to refuse disclosing Israel's rights in International Law as reaffirmed by Article 80 of the United Nations' Charter, so BDS, "Blacklists" and other trickery can continue. May I just remind that Article 80 was introduced in the UN Charter, among others, by a certain Benzion Netanyahu, yes indeed, the actual PM's father. Ever heard Bibi mentioning Article 80?
6. Any one else noticing a Muslim
BBB   (10.26.17)
at the UN condemns and warns Israel about human rights?
I had to rub my eyes and then nearly vomited.

UN is now the mouth piece of every Muslim nation of horrors.
7. Arab Muslim al-Hussein of UN is leading boycott of Israel
C   (10.26.17)
the arabs have been trying to lead boycotts against israel since israel
declared independence.
arab muslim states and other muslim states are goosestepping their
way into misery and despair.
8. UN Antisemitism Again Rears its Ugly Head
MadDad ,   Johannesburg   (10.26.17)
Forget the 3 nos and 100 years of cutting Jews throats
Why worry about what Western Liberalism has done for Zimbabwe
That State Capture is the order of the day in South Africa
Yeah Right - kill the little miracle called Israel and the Arabs will make peace
9. Time to get serious about defunding the evil U.N.
Chaim ,   Israel   (10.26.17)
The world would be a far better place without the Jew bashing, freedom and free enterprise hating, terror and tyrant loving U.N. Nor can we ignore the fact that the U.N. seeks to establish a world government and rule the world. It is time for everyone who loves freedom to get serious about defunding the evil U.N.
10. Not a Valid Defense
Paul E. Merrell, J.D ,   Springfield, Oregon   (11.20.17)
@ "The companies claim the list's creation was politically motivated and point to the fact that the commissioner constructed no such lists pertaining to other regions of conflict—such as the Crimean Peninsula and Western Sahara—as proof."

Since when has one charged with a serious crime been permitted to defend on the basis that others have not been charged with the same crime? That is an evasive argument that any court would disallow. Moreover, it is tantamount to an admission that the one charged has no defense on the merits of the case.
