The Zionist Federation of Australia has partnered up with UN Watch to promote their petition to Australian audiences. Already more than 10,000 people around the world have signed the petition saying enough is enough against the biased and one-sided United Nations Human Rights Commission (UNHRC) reports against Israel.
Text of Petition to UN Leadership
The following petition will be delivered on March 18th, right after the rally described below, to UN Human Rights Council President Coly Seck and UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Michelle Bachelet.
We are outraged that on March 18, 2019, the UN Human Rights Council will launch an unprecedented assault on the rights of Israelis, and on the UN’s own founding principles:
- The UNHRC will release the report of their one-sided Commission of Inquiry into Israel’s “large-scale assault” on “civilian” Palestinian protesters at the Gaza border.
- The UNHRC will release a report on their blacklist of companies who do business over the Green Line, a thinly veiled form of anti-Israel BDS (boycott, divestment and sanctions).
- The UNHRC will release another five reports singling out Israel — the only democracy in the Middle East — and yet none on gross abuses committed by China, Turkey, Cuba, and other of the world’s worst regimes.
All of this comes as the UNHRC, since its founding in 2006, has adopted more resolutions against Israel than on Iran, Syria and North Korea combined; has convened more urgent sessions and inquiries on Israel than on any other country; and singles out Israel alone under a permanent agenda item et every session.
Likewise, at the UN General Assembly, Israel was targeted in 2018 by 21 one-sided resolutions, while there were a total of six on the rest of the world combined. There were zero resolutions on the human rights situation in China, Venezuela, Saudi Arabia, Belarus, Cuba, Turkey, Pakistan, Vietnam, Algeria, or on 175 other countries.
Enough is enough. It’s time for the UN to end its bigotry and prejudice.
We urge you to show moral leadership by denouncing the UN’s relentless bias and demonization of the Jewish nation, and the betrayal of its own founding values.
We urge you to uphold the UN’s founding principles of universality and equality, and to uphold the human rights of all.
Forward this petition on to your networks.
