• Despite the promise of ending selectivity, the Council’s pathological obsession with demonizing Israelis and denying their human rights has never been worse. In its first decade the council has adopted 67 resolutions condemning Israel—and only 61 on the rest of the world combined.
• The resolutions on Israel are uniquely suffused with political hyperbole, selective reporting, and the suppression of any countervailing facts that might provide balance in background information or context.
Mr. Neuer delivered several additional speeches in London, including remarks at a rally to counter the pro-Hezbollah “Al Quds Day” march. He also met with legal, parliamentary and community representatives.
