Official Statements

Zionist Federation of Australia President Jeremy Leibler welcomed Ambassador Gorely’s comments. “The Australian Government expressed its ‘fundamental concerns’ about this commission of inquiry when it was established, and these appear to have been well-founded. Ambassador Gorely’s calling out Kothari’s antisemitic comments is appropriate and welcome.”

Mr Leibler continued, “Kothari’s comments are as abhorrent as they are unsurprising. The UN Human Rights Council machine is constantly trying to outdo itself in its obsession with Israel. It was all but inevitable that the majority of the people it appointed to investigate Israel would reveal their animus towards Jews and Israel. We endorse Israeli Prime Minister Yair Lapid’s call for the UN Secretary-General to remove all three commissioners and disband the commission of inquiry.”
