Netanyahu steps up attacks on UN Human Rights Council before it releases Gaza report

In the run-up to publication by the UN Human rights Council this week of what is expected to be a very critical report of Israel’s actions in last summer’s Gaza offensive, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu went on the offensive Monday, trying to delegitimize the delegitimizers.

The UN Human Rights Council, Netanyahu said at the start of a meeting with visiting Polish Foreign Minister Grzegorz Schetyna, has passed more resolutions against Israel than against North Korea, Syria and Iran combined.

Furthermore, he said, the council first appointed as head of the Gaza investigation committee a man, William Schabas, who at one time received payment from the PLO.
