WHAT ARE WE PROTESTING?
On March 18, 2019, the UN Human Rights Council will launch an unprecedented assault on the rights of Israelis, and on the UN’s own founding principles, in the form of seven biased reports:
• The UNHRC will release the report of their Commission of Inquiry into Israel’s “large-scale assault” on “civilian” Palestinian protesters at the Gaza border.
• The UNHRC will release an update report on their blacklist of companies who do business with Israelis over the green line, a thinly veiled form of anti-Israeli BDS.
• The UNHRC will release another five reports singling out Israel — the only democracy in the Middle East — and yet none on gross abuses committed by China, Turkey, Cuba, and other of the world’s worst regimes.
The week will culminate with the adoption of five biased resolutions condemning Israel, which will make no mention of Hamas or the PA.
Enough is enough.
WHAT ARE WE DEMANDING?
We are demanding an end to the prejudice and injustice of the UN’s relentless bias and demonization of the Jewish nation, and against the betrayal of their own founding values.
