UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Wipes Israel Off the Map

Israel - a UN member state - was erased from the map and replaced with “Palestine” at a seminar held at UN Headquarters on October 3, 2017. The event was “organized by the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights,” and entitled: “Introducing the Arab Network for National Human Rights Institutions and its Role in the Promotion and Protection of Human Rights in the Arab Region.” The UN used its extraordinary facilities to webcast the event - and the map - around the world.

The map appeared on two occasions, as part of a video played during the UN-sponsored event. Lest anyone miss the point, the map named Arab states in blue and left non-Arab states unnamed in white spaces. All of Israel was in blue and labeled “Palestine.”

The event was advertised in the UN’s Daily Journal for October 3, 2017, which carried the announcement that “all are invited.” The Journal also spelled out that the High Commissioner’s Office held the event “in collaboration with the Arab Network for National Human Rights Institutions.” The network is a group of institutions located in the following 15 non-democracies: Sudan, “Palestine,” Libya, Egypt, Jordan, Iraq, Bahrain, Qatar, Oman, Djibouti, Comoros, Mauritania, Morocco, Algeria, and Tunisia. Only two of these states even have diplomatic relations with Israel.

A representative from the Arab Network admitted to the assembled that the “human rights” institutions within each of these non-democracies were bought and paid for by the states themselves. In his words: “the state must fund these institutions.” And he described “the relationship between the country and the institution as very close…because the governments have established them.”

The UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, Zeid Ra’ad Al Hussein, is currently leading a full-fledged boycott, divestment and sanctions (BDS) campaign and blackmailing companies doing business with Israel. Wiping a Jewish state off the map is indeed the object of BDS, the economic strangulation of its intended victim. The map helps makes the High Commissioner’s true intention crystal clear.
