President of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) Nazhat Shameem Khan cut off UN Watch during a UNHRC session on Friday after the NGO began quoting antisemitic posts by UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) teachers, saying that the quotes were unacceptable "personal attacks" against the teachers. "I have noticed that in the course of this video, derogatory, insulting and inflammatory remarks have been made which in particular refer directly to specific individuals. This amounts to personal attacks against those individuals and it is not acceptable in this forum," said Khan, saying the video was "out of order."

The video in question showed Hillel Neuer, director of UN Watch, referencing a report published in August by UN Watch calling out over 100 teachers and staff at UNRWA schools for posting antisemitic content on social media. The content included videos of Adolf Hitler, antisemitic conspiracy theories about Jews controlling the world and content inciting and glorifying terrorism.
