I was right, they went to Geneva. Shame on the UN for inviting terrorists who advocate genocide to speak about "human Rights" I'd say it is a travesty, but the UN has turned itself into a travesty
Hamas welcomed at UN headquarters in Geneva By ANNE BAYEFSKY 03/20/2012 18:56 Only the United Nations could twist the security threat so that the terrorist front man became the victim.
On March 19, 2012 the UN Human Rights Council and its UN staff in Geneva advertised and facilitated an event featuring a representative of the terrorist organization Hamas. Facing an immediate outcry, a massive misinformation campaign is now underway to protect the already discredited UN body. But there is no avoiding the facts: the UN handed a UN entrance pass and a UN microphone, in a UN room, to Hamas’s own Ismail al-Ashqar.
US, European and Israeli laws designate Hamas as a terror group. Hamas’s hate-filled Charter advocates genocide, or in its words: “Israel will exist and will continue to exist until Islam will obliterate it…The Day of Judgment will not come about until Muslims fight the Jews (killing the Jews)…” The organization is pursuing that goal on a daily basis.
Nevertheless, the Council published a formal UN “Bulletin” – with the Council’s name splashed across the top and a formal UN symbol number – containing the following message. Anyone wanting to catch a lecture by a Hamas human rights authority should head off to Meeting Room XXVII in the UN’s Palais des Nations from 10 to 12 Monday morning.

This week alone radical organizations with extreme ideologies are scheduled to hold two more two-hour sessions on UN premises: “Human rights in Palestine” and “Follow-up to the Goldstone Report.” The organizing NGOs, including Al Haq, BADIL Resource Center for Palestinian Residency and Refugee Rights, and Mouvement contre le racisme et pour l'amitié entre les peuples, all hold official UN accreditation. Standard fare is to claim that Israel’s creation was a catastrophe that has to be walked back; Israel is an apartheid state; Israelis are foreigners transplanted onto Arab land; Israel should be subject to debilitating sanctions. BADIL’s website and activities, for example, are studded with antisemitic images and rants. . . .
no person can get through UN security at the Palais des Nations without their name being provided to UN officials in advance; officials must then grant access and issue a UN pass. Even the UN spokesperson has not alleged that al-Ashqar evaded security and snuck in. . . .
Only the UN could twist the security threat so that the terrorist front man became the victim.
Dos, we do not sponsor "terrorists" we support "freedom fighters".
It's a matter of who we are supporting. Washington and Jefferson were "terrorists" as were the anti Nazi French Resistance.
More seriously we have got troops in Africa chasing the Lord's Resistance Army who is terrorizing Central Africa, the only relationship this conflict has is that Bush swore to go after terrorists no matter who they were or where the are. Obama had opened up the theater in Africa.
The LRC is a Christian terrorist group. It's only right that a Christian country hunt them down.
The United States, officially, is not a Christian country,Miraj. We have no established religion but allow all faiths as long as they do not kill people in God's name. (human sacrifice and sectarian violence are not tolerated here.)
For those who have faith, no explanation is neccessary. For those who have no faith, no explanation is possible.
St. Thomas Aquinas
If one turns his ear from hearing the Law, even his prayer is an abomination. Proverbs 28:9
'Standard fare is to claim that Israel’s creation was a catastrophe that has to be walked back; Israel is an apartheid state; Israelis are foreigners transplanted onto Arab land; Israel should be subject to debilitating sanctions. '
You are speaking in future tense. You are accusing them before they had a chance to say things they came to say.
But thanks for info that it is occurring. It can't do any harm and it just might do a lot of good. At least then you can accuse them for things they actually did say.
Rocket was only going from consistent past expressions by HAMAS 'officials' of HAMAS policy - oh, and from the policies outlined in their Charter - the Charter that all HAMAS 'optomists' like Dos seem to forget......
