Chronologies of humans rights abuses of Palestinians by Israel:





UN Rights Panel Condemns Israel
Voice of America News

Posted Wednesday April 18, 2001 - 12:30:13 PM EDT

Geneva - The 53-member United Nations Human Rights Commission has overwhelmingly adopted three resolutions on the Middle East.

The Human Rights Commission condemned what it called Israel's disproportionate use of force in the Palestine occupied territories, its settlement policy, and occupation of the Syrian Golan Heights.

The United States was virtually alone in voting against the three resolutions. Guatemala joined the United States in voting against the resolutions on the occupied territories and the Golan Heights.

The issues set off a spirited debate among the member countries. In introducing the resolution on the occupied territories, Algerian Ambassador Mohammed Salah Dembri accused Israel of putting the Palestinian people in danger of death by the disproportionate and indiscriminate use of force. He said Israeli tanks should not enter the Palestinian territories and Israel should refrain from sealing off an entire people. "Once again," he said, "these are such unfortunate reminiscences of history. Gaza and other territories once again could become further concentration camps with reminiscences of Auschwitz, Dachau, and Treblinka." The U.S. ambassador, Shirin Tahir-Kheli, immediately responded to what she considered inappropriate and distasteful remarks by the Algerian Ambassador.

"The United States is deeply dismayed that in introducing the resolution, L-30, the representative of Algeria equated the situation in the territories occupied by Israel with such tragedies of world history as Auschwitz and Dachau," she said.

The U.S. ambassador called the text unbalanced and said it did nothing to improve the prospects for peace in the Middle East. The Israeli ambassador, Yaakov Levy agreed. "Were this text drafted with the aim of ending the ongoing cycle of violence, it would have included a clear and unequivocal demand for the Palestinian leadership to call upon their followers, their paramilitary militia groups, and security forces to end the violent armed attacks against Israelis that they initiated in October 2000," said Israel's ambassador.

The resolution calling for an end to Israel's expansion of settlements in the occupied territories garnered the greatest support. It was presented by the European Union and was approved by 50 votes.

UN General Assembly condemns Israel

was MIDEAST REACTION The United Nations general assembly has condemned what it describes as Israel's excessive use of force against Palestinian civilians.

The resolution also calls for the prevention of what it calls illegal acts of violence by Israeli settlers.

Ninety-two countries voted in favour of the resolution; only six voted against, including the United States and Israel.

Forty-six countries abstained. Most European countries voted in favour, but Britain and Germany were among the abstentions. The BBC UN correspondent says the assembly's condemnation of Israel follows a diplomatic struggle between Arab members of the organisation and the US after Washington blocked further debate on the Middle East crisis in the UN security council. Our correspondent says the resolution has conciliatory elements: it condemns all acts of violence and supports the agreement reached at the Sharm el-Sheikh summit.

POLITICS-MIDEAST: UN Human Rights Commission Condemns Israel

By Gustavo Capdevila


GENEVA, Oct 19 (IPS) - The Arab nations were able to convince the United Nations Commission on Human Rights to approve - though by a narrow margin - a resolution condemning Israel for the violent incidents of the last three weeks in the Palestinian territories.

The decision was the result of 19 votes in favour, 16 against and 17 abstentions. In general, the industrialised nations as a bloc opposed the text presented by the Arab countries, while developing nations were divided between the ''yes'' vote and abstentions.

Delegates from the Arab and Islamic countries commented that the resolution preserves the reputation of the Geneva-bsed UN Commission on Human Rights and lamented that the European Union (EU) avoided discussion of a consensus text.

The United States and the EU criticised the resolution because it only condemns the abuses attributed to the Israelis and omits violations committed by Palestinians.

The approved text calls for the creation ''on an urgent basis, of a human rights inquiry commission ... to gather and compile information on violations of human rights and acts which constitute grave breaches of international humanitarian law by the Israeli occupying power.''

It also requests that ''the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (Mary Robinson) undertake an urgent visit to the occupied Palestinian territories to take stock of the violation of human rights'' committed by Israeli forces.

Another point included in the resolution asks that UN special rapporteurs on human rights and the Working Group on Enforced or Involuntary Disappearances conduct immediate missions to the Palestinian territories and report their conclusions to the Commission.

The declaration calls upon Israel ''to put an immediate end to any use of force against unarmed civilians,'' and upon ''the international community to take immediate effective measures to secure the cessation of violence by the Israeli occupying power.''

The declarative portion of the UN Commission's resolution contains paragraphs that sharply censure Israel, ''condemning the provocative visit to Al-Haram Al-Sharif on 28 September 2000 by Ariel Sharon, the Likud party leader.''

The Palestinians and other Arab nations maintain that Sharon's visit triggered the violent incidents that occurred that day, and the ongoing clashes since, which have claimed more than 110 lives, mostly Palestinians.

The UN Commission on Human Rights, made up of 53 of the UN's 189 member states, met for three days this week in special session at the request of the Arab nations and of the Organisation of the Islamic Conference.

The special sessions coincided with the emergency summit this week at the Egyptian resort of Sharm el-Sheik, which included the participation of presidents from Israel, the Palestinian Authority, Egypt, Jordan, United States and the European Union, as well as UN secretary-general Kofi Annan.

The Sharm el-Sheik summit achieved accords intended to halt the violence in the Palestinian territories and to renew relations between the parties caught up in the conflict.

The leaders at the summit in Egypt also agreed to establish an investigative commission, entrusted to the United States and the UN secretary-general, to determine responsibilities for the wave of violence in Israel and the Palestinian territories.

At the special session in Geneva, delegates from the western nations said the resolution adopted by the Commission endangers the implementation of the accords reached at Sharm el-Sheik.

The US delegation said the adopted text does not provide a route for reconciliation between the Israelis and Palestinians. The Israeli representatives charged that the resolution blames just one party to the conflict and fails to express regret for the Israeli victims.

A Latin American diplomat commented that the resolution is weak, but it will be carried out.

The Commission's directive panel, presided by Nepalese representative Shambhu Ram Simkhada, must now designate the members of the inquiry commission that is to travel to the Palestinian territories.

A statement from the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights indicated that implementing the resolution would cost approximately 814,000 dollars.

Of that sum, 594,000 would be earmarked for the inquiry commission's expenses, 20,000 for the travel expenses of High Commissioner Robinson and her team, 100,000 for the mission of special rapporteurs and another 100,000 for general expenses.

Voting in favour of the resolution were Bangladesh, Bhutan, Cuba, China, India, Indonesia, Madagascar, Mauricio, Morocco, Niger, Pakistan, the Philippines, Qatar, Senegal, Sri Lanka, Swaziland, Sudan, Tunisia and Venezuela.

Those voting against included Canada, Czech Republic, France, Germany, Great Britain, Guatemala, Italy, Japan, Latvia, Luxemburg, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Rumania, Spain and the United States.

Abstaining were Argentina, Botswana, Brazil, Burundi, Colombia, Congo, Chile, Ecuador, Mexico, Nepal, Nigeria, Peru, Rwanda, Russia, South Korea and Zambia.

The delegation from Liberia did not attend the vote of the UN Commission on Human Rights. (END/IPS/tra-so/pc/mj/ld/00)

U.N. Condemns Israeli Use of Force

By Nicole Winfield
Associated Press Writer
Saturday, Oct. 21, 2000; 6:40 a.m. EDT

UNITED NATIONS –– The Palestinians won another U.N. admonition of Israel with a General Assembly resolution condemning the "excessive use of force" by Israelis against Palestinians civilians in three weeks of fighting.

But the non-binding resolution adopted late Friday passed with only 92 votes in favor – an unusually low number for resolutions on the Middle East, U.S. Ambassador Richard Holbrooke noted after the balloting.

"It was a mistake to bring this kind of resolution to the floor in the middle of a world crisis," Holbrooke told reporters. "It was mistake to put forward a resolution that would undermine peace efforts."

Holbrooke cast one of six "no" votes, while 46 countries voted to abstain. Some 30 countries didn't cast a ballot at all.

The resolution was the third adopted by the United Nations since the violence began Sept. 28, following a similar one in the Security Council and one at the Geneva-based U.N. Human Rights Commission this week which voted to set up an inquiry into the violence.

The Israeli Foreign Ministry on Saturday called the General Assembly resolution "is completely one-sided," saying it ignores the mob killing of two Israeli soldiers and the desecration of Jewish holy sites in Nablus and Jericho.

The ministry said the government "will do everything in its power to calm the situation and expects that the Palestinian leadership will also act in such a manner."

The European Union successfully softened the assembly resolution to make it somewhat more balanced. The final draft, for example, includes a call on both sides to implement their pledges made at this week's summit in Sharm el-Sheik, Egypt for a truce and a recommitment to peace.

While the draft condemns the "excessive use of force" by Israeli troops, there is also a condemnation of general acts of violence – an amendment sought by the EU to moderate the text.

But only nine of the EU members signed off on the final version. Six abstained: Britain, Denmark, Germany, Italy, the Netherlands and Sweden.

The vote came at the conclusion of a two-day emergency session of the General Assembly during which dozens of ambassadors expressed support for this week's peace efforts but resoundingly criticized the Israeli response to Palestinian mob protests.

Egyptian Ambassador Ahmed Aboul Gheit called on Israel to correct what he said was the root of the problem by withdrawing from territories it has occupied since 1967.

"Only then may Israel have the legitimacy it deserves and aspires to," Aboul Gheit said. "And only then will our peoples know an end to a conflict that has ripped our region apart for the last half-century."

Palestinian observer Nasser al-Kidwa thanked all those who voted in favor of the resolution. But in an acknowledgment that the tally was not as strong as it might otherwise have been, he added, "Our people and our Arab countries will watch with great concern the position adopted by some that is not in coherence with justice or international law, or even with their traditional positions."

Holbrooke said with the resolution now behind them, it was time for the Israelis and the Palestinians to try to rebuild that reconciliation that seemed even more remote as nine Palestinians were killed in new violence Friday.

"Today was a very bad day in the region," Holbrooke said. "The dangers are mounting. And its time to get on with the peace diplomacy and get away from diplomatic squabbling."

The United States versus the World at the United Nations

America, we have all been taught for half a century, is the leader of "The Free World".  If this is so, it's proper to ask: Where are the followers?  Where is the evidence that Washington's world view sways the multitude of nations?  To enlist support for its wars in Korea, Vietnam and the Persian Gulf, the United States had to resort to bribery and threats. At the United Nations, the US has, with noteworthy regularity, been on the minority side in voting on resolutions.    The table below shows a portion of this pattern.  It covers an arbitrarily chosen 10-year period, 1978 through 1987, and is composed of the following sections:
          1978-1981: All voting in the General Assembly examined; only those resolutions for which the US cast a solitary "no" vote or were joined by one or two other nations are listed.
          1982-1983:  All voting in the General Assembly examined; only those resolutions    for which the US cast a solitary "no" vote are listed.
           1984-1987:  Only a portion of the General Assembly resolutions are examined, and a sample  has been selected, primarily for diversity.

     The number of abstentions is not shown.  There were many resolutions where Israel cast a solitary "no" vote and the US was the sole abstainer.
     Voting on resolutions of the Security Council and the Economic and Social Council are not included here, but these votes show a very similar pattern.  In the Council -- where its solitary "no" vote is enough to defeat a measure -- the United States is free to play its role of international school bully.

      We were all also taught that the Communists had no respect for world opinion.
