UN: Israel is worst violator of health rights in the world

GENEVA, May 20, 2015 – As Israeli hospitals continue their life-saving treatment for escalating numbers of wounded Syrians fleeing to the Golan from the Assad regime’s barbaric attacks, the U.N. reached new heights of absurdity today by accusing Israel of violating the health rights of Syrians in the Golan.

By a vote of 104 to 4, with 6 abstentions and 65 absent, the Jewish state was singled out as the world’s top violator of health rights by the annual assembly of the U.N.’s World Health Organization.

The resolution, which adopted two reports heaping blame upon Israel for allegedly violating the health rights of both the Palestinians and Druze residents of the Golan, was the 2015 assembly’s only treatment of a specific country situation.

There was no debate on the health of the Yemeni people now under indiscriminate Saudi bombardment, no mention at all of the 1,850 Yemenis killed, the 7,394 wounded, and the 545,000 displaced, many of whom are desperate to find food…

  • What a sick joke.

    While I well understand Israel providing life=saving treatment for the Arabs as it is based on a basic tenet of Judaism, I have come to the conclusion that they should cease doing it. There have been numerous natural disasters in other countries and Israel has always provided unattached aid and assistance including medical care with never any kind of recognition. In fact it is just the opposite with the usual lies about those “evil” Jews.

    The UN is a progressive-muslim hate speech organization

    And who exactly believes the UN? That piece of NY real estate would be more useful as a parking lot.

    Israel should shut down whatever offices and facilities the WHO maintains there and expel all foreign personnel.

  • Oh, f— the UN!

    Israel should withdraw!

    • dance…dancetotheradio

      All the democratic countries of the world should withdraw.

    As K says, if the 9/11 hijackers had flown just a bit to the right …

      That’s funny.

    The world should be so lucky if in fact Israel was the world’s worse violator of human rights.
