An NGO affiliated with the terror group Hamas was given a platform to question the legitimacy and existence of the UN member state of Israel at the UN Human Rights Council. Despite having known ties to Hamas, the Palestinian Return Centre was given UN-accreditation in July 2015, which entitles it to address the UN Human Rights Council. On September 25, 2017, the Palestinian Return Centre spoke at the Human Rights Council's session specifically dedicated to demonizing Israel, agenda item 7.
In its words:
"In 2017, it is 100 years since the Balfour Declaration, a document which endorsed the colonial project that led to the Nakba, the mass displacement of the Palestinian nation. As such we call on Britain to apologise for the injustice of its actions, which are still affecting Palestinians to this day. Through the Balfour Declaration, Britain helped establish Israel as a settler colonial state. Israel continues to dominate the over 13 million Palestinians thorough an Apartheid regime, colonial policies and military occupation."
