Latest UN Watch dispatch:

New Report: U.N. Accusations of "Israeli Attack on School" Were False

At last month's emergency session of the U.N. Human Rights Council, ambassadors from the world's dictatorships -- and even some democracies -- lined up to attack Israel for "targeting a U.N. school." Canada alone voted in opposition to the grossly one-sided text. (To join the thousands who thanked Canadian Prime Minister Harper for defending basic principles, click here.)

Now a new report by Patrick Martin of Canada's Globe and Mail reveals that, contrary to what was reported worldwide, (1) No Israeli shells landed in the UNRWA school compound; (2) No one taking refuge in the U.N. schoolyard was killed; and (3) None of these facts prevented a U.N. agency from falsely reporting that "Israeli shelling directly hit two UNRWA schools ..." For the full story, see the article below.

Will the Human Rights Council now apologize for having falsely condemned Israel for the “targeting of facilities of the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East in Gaza, including schools”?

Update: More on the UN's enigmatic love affaire with Hamas:


"A UN spokesman says Hamas police in Gaza have seized thousands of blankets and food parcels meant for needy residents.

Spokesman Christopher Gunness says Hamas police raided a UN warehouse in Gaza City on Tuesday evening. He says police snatched 3,500 blankets and more than 400 food parcels.

How shocking! UN reports that actually blame Hamas! I wonder how they'll make up for such betrayals.
