Israel released its initial response to the UNHRC report on Operation Protective Edge.
It stated that: “This report was commissioned by a notoriously biased institution, given an obviously biased mandate, and initially
headed by a grossly biased chairperson, William Shabas.
The UNHRC has a singular obsession with Israel, passing more country specific resolutions against Israel than against Syria, Iran and North Korea combined – in fact, more than against all other countries combined. The commission of inquiry’s mandate presumed Israel guilty from the start and its original chairman, William Shabas, was compelled to resign due to a blatant conflict of interest (paid work for the Palestinians), which he concealed from the United Nations.
