Anne Bayefsky: Hamas Welcomed at UN Headquarters in Geneva

For Immediate Release:
March 19, 2012
Contact:  Anne Bayefsky
(917) 488-1558

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.
