TheÂ Israeli newspaperÂ MaarivÂ reportedÂ yesterday that the UNESCO committee on human rights had accepted Syria as a member:
Israel has now responded, according to theÂ news website Israeltoday.co.il:
“We are talking about an outrageous absurdity,” one Israeli official told Israel Radio. “UNESCO is legitimizing Syria [as a human rights champion] even as it is slaughtering its own people.” Â (eye on the world)
For once they don’t blame da Jooozzz: Â “It was the United States that destroyed Syrian democracy in 1949 when the CIA sponsored the first coup in the country ending democratic rule”
Â The frightening thing about this article is that its not written by some delusional, primitive headbanger in the M.E. Â It is written byÂ Â Joseph Massad , Â Associate Professor of Modern Arab Politics and Intellectual History at Columbia University in New York.
“The project was in the final testing phase.”
