The United Nations must hold Israel responsible for the crime of apartheid against Palestinians, legal expert Michael Lynk told the Human Rights Council in Geneva in a written report due to be debated on Friday. "The Special Rapporteur recommends that the international community accepts and adopts the findings … that apartheid is being practiced by Israel in the occupied Palestinian territory and beyond," Lynk wrote as part of a series of recommendations he placed at the end of his report. He submitted the document in the aftermath of three reports that accused Israel of the crime of apartheid, authored by Yesh Din, B'Tselem, Human Rights Watch, and Amnesty International.

Lynk's report, however, upgrades the drive to label Israel as an apartheid state because it will be posted on the UN's internet and written into the UNHRC record. Lynk called on the international community to implement accountability measures to ensure an end to Israeli apartheid practices.

Michael Lynck is a prominent Canadian Muslim of Lebanese parentage who has been active in pro-Palestinian lobbying for his entire adult life. That he is the UN's Special Rapporteur on Palestinian human rights is ridiculous. Talk about having a vested interest. It's like appointing a fox to police the henhouse; or like having a judge hear a case against his family member. That he has accused Israel of war crimes is no more surprising than hearing a BLM activist say whites are racist.
