"Miloon Kothari's letter is a transparent ploy to deflect the criticism he has come under. It took him 8 days, 19 delegations, HRC President, UN SG [Secretary-General]'s Spokesperson, UN SR on FoRB [UN Special Rapporteur on Freedom of Religion or Belief] & countless organizations to speak out against his antisemitic comments, for him to finally react.
This also follows a failed attempt by Ms. Navi Pillay to justify his clear antisemitic comments. She defended the indefensible.
This dark episode of the HRC demonstrates the deeply-rooted prejudices held by the CoI & its Commissioners agst [against] Israel & the Jewish People. It highlights many problems about this CoI, which is composed by biased activists with an unlimited & unprecedented mandate to attack Israel.
If the UN is committed to its own standards of independence & impartiality, and if it is sincere in its fight against antisemitism, it must firmly act. Israel continues to call for the resignation of all three compromised Commissioners, as well as the disbanding of this CoI."
