Abstract


  • Inevitably, the United Nations Human Rights Council has expressed its condemnation of Israel

    and launched a war crimes inquiry. The vote on July 23 followed the usual political lines that

    have previously resulted in the 47-member council being critiqued for bias even by UN

    Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon. The resolution was supported by 29 council members (for

    example Organisation for Islamic Co-operation states, Latin American nations, China, India),

    opposed by the US and abstained from by 17 mostly European countries.
