The UN Human Rights Council’s Commission of Inquiry on Israel must be disbanded after its members made and defended antisemitic slurs, Prime Minister Yair Lapid wrote in a letter to UN Secretary-General António Guterres on Sunday.

“Excellency, I call on you today to honor your word in this egregious case, to set the record straight,” Lapid wrote. “This cannot stand. Slurs about a ‘Jewish lobby’ that acts to ‘control’ the media, are reminiscent of the darkest days of modern history.”
