Was there ever a time when Arabs (Muslims) were not outraged by the existence of the tiny Jewish state?
The UN Human Rights Council has been too welcoming to countries that abuse human rights, yet the inter-governmental body still “has the power to shame abusers of human rights,” Hillel C. Neuerâ€‹, executive director of UN Watch, said in a talk at the University of Michigan Law School.
“I’ve witnessed some of the most vicious tyrannies using every arrow in their quiver, every tool in their toolbox, to prevent their countries from being named in a resolution, from being targeted in an investigation, even to be so much as named on a watchlistâ€”these countries will pull out all the stops, using all their political, economic, military influence, to ensure that they’re never named at all,” Neuer said in the talk on Oct. 1, presented by Jewish Law Students Association.
“Countries do not want to be shamed on the international stageâ€”even powerful countries like China. … It harms their international prestige, it erodes their international standing, it can have economic and political consequences.”
