The UN, as we all know, is not exactly Israel's friend. And its Human Rights Counsel makes most UN bodies seem like Micronesia. But today they got even worse.
For the last seven years the Human Rights Counsel has had a special position for an investigator of Israel's conduct in the territories. John Dugard, a South African international law scholar, filled that position for the past seven years and was consistently pro-Palestinian.
But he's stepping down and now the UNHRC decided to appoint the unquestionably anti-Israel Richard Falk. If anyone thought this body had any relevance, this appointment should dispel that notion.
