ALERT - ISRAEL NEEDS YOUR SUPPORT AT THE UN NOW
THE TRUTH ABOUT IRAN AND HAMAS MUST TOLD TO THE UNITED NATIONS - PLEASE JOIN US IN THIS CLARION CALL
Thank You Camera and Human Rights Voices
The UN Human Rights Council is once again targeting Israel. We need all hands on deck to fight back - including yours! After Israel defended herself from an onslaught of thousands of rockets, mortars and missiles fired indiscriminately at civilian populations throughout the Jewish state by the Iranian-sponsored terror group Hamas in May of 2021, the UNHRC created an open-ended “Commission of Inquiry” (COI) , with unprecedented resources and staffing and an indefinite mandate to examine Israel's actions. The resolution creating the COI was organized by states known to be hostile to Israel, and the investigatory body is comprised of individuals known to be biased. Worse, the COI’s mandate calls for an examination of the “root causes” of the conflict. Considering the three commissioners appointed to the COI are known anti-Israel activists, the conclusion is all but written in stone, and it is widely believed that the report, expected in June of this year, will delegitimize the Jewish State and seek to re-litigate the right of the Jewish people to self-determination in their indigenous homeland. It is also expected that the COI will take advantage of recent slanderous reports from groups like Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, and B’Tselem to label Israel as an “apartheid” state. The COI has put out a “call for submissions,” expecting that the usual anti-Israel organizations and individuals will provide it with the language and libels to aid in its effort to slander the Jewish State. But anyone, from professionals to students, individuals to large organizations, is allowed to make such submissions — including you! Further information about the bias of the Commissioners will be forthcoming. For now, we ask all of our friends and supporters to make submissions to the COI following the guidelines below. The purpose of sending submissions is to create compelling public record -- to present the truth in a manner that rings so loud and so clear that it cannot and must not be denied by the international community at large - regardless of the disposition the “kangaroo court” a/k/a the UN Human Rights Council. It is very important that you take the time to forward copies of your submissions to us and/or the folks at CAMERA and Human Rights Voices so we can have a complete record of all of the pro-Israel submissions which will presumably be ignored. While not required, you may also wish to add an introductory paragraph language explaining that you consider the COI process to be inherently flawed, illegitimate, and political.
Please create your own submission rather than forwarding this Alert to the COI. Please prepare a short submission to the UN’s COI – using the guidelines below – and encourage your friends, family members, and synagogue and church Israel-action groups to do the same. Then turn in your submission to the four places designated below. While the COI isn’t expected to release its report until June, for practical reasons, we encourage you to have your submissions sent by February 28.
Guidelines: The COI states that submissions can be made on one or more of five topics. The three most relevant for our purposes are listed here. Ensure that at the beginning of your submission, you clearly identify which of the topics your submission fits under.
• “Underlying root causes of recurrent tensions, instability and protraction of conflict in and between the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, and Israel; as well as systematic discrimination and repression based on national, ethnic, racial or religious identity.” • “Facts and circumstances regarding alleged violations of international humanitarian law and alleged violations and abuses of international human rights law leading up to and since 13 April 2021.” • “Identification of those responsible.”
Any length is acceptable, even just one page.
We have compiled some articles and videos below as a resource - but please feel to conduct your own research. If you find additional resources that are very compelling please send them our way so we can share them.
