Israel looking to mend ties with UN Rights Council, but says 'built-in discrimination' must end




Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Likud hard-liner Zeev Elkin.

The nerve and hypocrisy of the Israeli's is breathtaking. They require that " fair play and international standards are applied towards Israel,” in order to resume ties with the Geneva-based United Nations Human Rights Council. There is no reference to "fair play and international standards" for the people of the occupied territories.

Netanyahu and Zeev Elkin should remove the Israeli occupation force from Palestine, dismantle the illegal settlement in Palestine and end their occupation of East Jerusalem. Perhaps then the rest of us may then believe that the State of Israel actually wants to reach a settlement with the Palestinians.
