Summarizing the resolution passed by the UN Human Rights
farce Council, UN-Truth writes:
The resolution endorsed the recommendations in the Goldstone report, and recommended that the UN General Assembly â€œconsiderâ€ the report in its current session (which lasts until late December, or eventually until next September). It also said that the Israeli restrictions on Gaza â€” which the HRC resolution says is occupied â€” is a â€œsiegeâ€ that â€œconstitutes collective punishment of Palestinian civiliansâ€.
How then should the UNHRC respond to this?
Saudi Arabia on Tuesday imposed a naval blockade on the Red Sea coast of northern Yemen to combat Shiite rebels along its border, an adviser to the government said, in the latest escalation of fighting in the southern Arabian Peninsula.
An interesting observation follows:
The Saudi offensive has raised concerns of a proxy war in the Middle East between Iran and Saudi Arabia, a key U.S. ally. Shiite Iran is thought to favor the rebels in Yemen, while Saudi Arabia, which is Sunni, is Iran’s fiercest regional rival.
The concerns are about a “proxy war,” and not about the siege that is impoverishing Yemen? Taken together with the Saudi “apartheid wall” on the border with Yemen and Saudi occupation of the Yemeni territories of Najran, Asir and Jizhan, we need a commission to declare Saudi Arabia in violation of international law with all the requisite resolutions and condemnations.
I really don’t care if Saudi Arabia is fighting an Iranian backed terror organization, the UN has an obligation to act according the standards it just established with the Goldstone report! This is collective punishment and must be treated as such! This is a Saudi Cast Lead.
(Not that Yemen deserves much sympathy as it is chasing its remaining Jews away.)
