Human rights at the Dictator’s Club

No such notice for the starving millions of North Korea, nor the dying in Syria or the oppressed of Iran and Saudi Arabia. Nope. But five (count ’em) five anti-Israel resolutions in one day.

“Paula Shcriefer, the US representative to the UN’s Human Rights Council, …noted that ‘none of the world’s worst human rights violators, some of whom are the objects of resolutions at this session have their own stand alone agenda item at this council,” and emphasized that “only Israel, a vibrant and open democracy, received such treatment.'”

It’s the democracy part that really gets to the Dictator’s Club. Also the Jooz.

Nazi’s descendant apologizes

A moving tale in Ynet News of a Nazi’s grandson who came to Israel to apologize to concentration camp survivors.

"Parkircher, a single factory worker, told the Yedioth Ahronoth newspaper that his grandfather has passed away while he was still very young. Years later he found a photograph of his grandfather wearing an SS uniform and started asking questions. His grandmother told him about his grandfathers’ service at the camp. Parkircher decided that he would seek out the camp survivors and ask for their forgiveness on behalf of his grandfather."
