Gaza appeals to world to alleviate its ‘Humanitarian Crisis’ and The UN Gaza Humanitarian Aid coordinator Robert Piper got the UN to authorize the disbursement of $2.5 million for generators, solar panels and water and health installations.

The UN funded a blacklist of businesses in Judea and Samaria effectively becoming a well-funded and equally vile arm of the BDS movement. Jewish leaders Stephen Greenberg and Malcolm Hoenlein asked the Human Rights Commissioner Zeid Ra'ad Al Hussein to prevent the publication and publicizing this “blacklist”. It just reinforces the Human Rights Council lack of legitimacy, insulting and ignoring the real victims of human rights violations and myopically focusing on Israel to the point of having to invent non-existent violations.
