Pro-Israel NGOs submit 2 million complaints to UN inquiry against Israel
Prof. Anne Bayefsky: COI’s findings will be “an all-out offensive on a Jewish state from its Jewish essence to the necessities of its survival – economic well-being and the right of self-defense.”

A group of pro-Israel organizations submitted nearly two million examples of repression of Jews and violation of their human rights to the UN Human Rights Council Commission of Inquiry on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict over the past three months.

The COI was established last year as an open-ended inquiry into the conflict, whose members all have made past comments accusing Israel of war crimes. Its chairwoman is Navi Pillay, the former UN Commissioner for Human Rights who appointed four fact-finding missions targeting Israel, more than any other country, including the Goldstone Report, later discredited by its lead author, chose deeply anti-Israel professor of international law Richard Falk as special rapporteur for the Palestinians, and convened the Durban II conference against racism, which gave antisemitic former Iranian president Mahmoud Ahmadinejad a platform to deny the Holocaust.

The inquiry began with a call for submissions about the “root causes” of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, including evidence of human rights violations, such as racial and religious discrimination and repression with “no temporal restrictions,” meaning they can be from before Israel was established.
