Today the UN Human Rights Council and its UN staff in Geneva advertised and facilitated an event that handed a UN pass, and a UN microphone, in a UN room, to a representative of the terrorist organization Hamas.
…notwithstanding the fact that the grotesque antisemitic charter of Hamas advocates the murder of Jews and the obliteration of the Jewish state - – and the organization’s members are continuing to use unspeakable cruelty and violence to realize that horrendous goal.
Here is the UN advertisement – a Bulletin posted on the UN website – of the event organized by the UN-accredited NGO "Maarij Foundation for Peace and Development (MFPD)".
Here are photos of the Hamas speaker – Ismail al-Ashqar – a member of the Palestinian Legislative Council at the session. (He is the individual wearing a red tie.)
Here is some of the material distributed at UN Headquarters during the event. Among other things, it includes a call for genocide against the Jewish people. “We ask Almighty God to…liberate all Palestinian territories…”
Yes, an organization dedicated to genocide but
handed a platform by the United Nations “human rights” apparatus.
