U.N. priorities: 90 minutes for today’s victims in Syria, entire day for old accusations against Israel

As part of its agenda item on all country situations, the June meeting of the U.N.’s 47-nation Human Rights Council will devote 90 minutes tomorrow to address the ongoing massacres in Syria, which have already claimed an estimated 14,000 deaths.

On Monday, however, the council will devote an entire day to alleged abuses by Israel, under its only agenda item dedicated to a single country. (“Item 7: Human rights situation in Palestine and other occupied Arab territories.”) See the latest U.N. schedule here; “OPT” = “Occupied Palestinian Territories.”)

It’s under that special agenda item that Richard Falk, the pro-Hamas 9/11 conspiracist who is the council’s Special Rapporteur on Palestine, will present his report.

In addition:

  • High Commissioner Navi Pillay will present yet another follow-up report on the 2010 flotilla incident;
  • There will be yet another follow-up report on the 2009 Goldstone Report;
  • And a report on the implementation of resolution 19/17 of March 2012, which called for an inquiry on Israeli settlements. The commission members are expected to be named soon, sources told UN Watch.
