Three weeks ago Hamas terrorists, supported by Iran, brutally attacked and slaughtered over 1400 people in Israel. Shortly after, Iran praised the Hamas attacks, saying they were “in line with the continuation of victories for the anti-Zionist resistance in different fields, including Syria, Lebanon and occupied lands,” according to Politico. Nonetheless, Iran is leading a human rights forum at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) between November 2nd and 3rd.
The Social Forum will focus “on the contribution of science, technology and innovation to the promotion of human rights, including in the context of post-pandemic recovery,” while being led by Iranian ambassador Ali Bahreini, UNHRC President Vaclav Balek announced in May. Iran killed hundreds of human rights protestors this year, provided material support to the terrorist group that killed more than 1,000 Israeli civilians and is designated by the State Department as a state sponsor of terror.
CNN reported The Israeli government says that Iran funnels roughly $100 million to Hamas a year. “We have to ask, on what basis did this council appoint the representative of the Islamic Republic of Iran as the chair of this UN Human Right Council’s Social Forum, starting on Nov. 2?” Hillel Neuer, a human rights lawyer who serves as the executive director of UN Watch questioned. “We ask the United Nations, how can you elevate and celebrate a government the beats, blinds, tortures and rapes women for the crime of demanding their basic human rights?”
Israeli ambassador to the UN Gilad Erdan called on the UN’s secretary general to resign after he said Hamas’ terror attacks “did not happen in a vacuum” and that the “Palestinian people have been subjected to 56 years of suffocating occupation,” Fox News Digital reported.
“The shocking speech by the @UN Secretary-General at the Security Council meeting, while rockets are being fired at all of Israel, proved conclusively, beyond any doubt, that the Secretary-General is completely disconnected from the reality in our region and that he views the massacre committed by Nazi Hamas terrorists in a distorted and immoral manner” Erdan tweeted.
