Schabas: There is a distortion in the attention given against Israel in the UNHRC

Former head of the UNHRC inquiry into the 2014 Gaza war, William Schabas, admitted in an interview with The BBC on Tuesday, that "there is a distortion in the amount of attention given against Israel, and the number of resolutions directed against Israel."

Shabas’ statement comes in response to questions of why Israel has disproportionately received more human rights condemnations than all countries combined, to which he acknowledged the Human Rights Council’s distortion against Israel. Shabas then defended his own claim by stating that Israel gets a "soft ride in the Security Council hearings."
