The Washington Free Beacon has obtained a report soon to be released by the United Nations that calls for an international campaign of legal attacks and economic warfare on a group of American companies that do business in Israel, including Hewlett-Packard, Caterpillar Inc., and Motorola Solutions Inc.
The Human Rights Council (HRC), a body dominated by Islamic countries and known for its hostility to, and heavy focus on, the Jewish State, issued the report. The George W. Bush administration refused to participate in the HRC, but President Barack Obama joined it soon after taking office. Members of the HRC include infamous human rights abusers such as Saudi Arabia, Qatar, Jordan, Libya, China, and Cuba.
The Obama-approved body maintains a “Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian territories [sic].” The current rapporteur is American college professor Richard Falk, a 9/11 “truther” who once posted an anti-Semitic cartoon on his personal blog.
In a letter to U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon, the Anti-Defamation League’s Abraham Foxman blasted the report and the HRC’s special rapporteur: “We believe you should have prevented the Secretariat from being a party to Mr. Falk’s anti-Israel agenda. Mr. Falk’s entire tenure as Special Rapporteur has served to undermine the credibility of the institution of the United Nations.”
The report attempts to instigate a campaign of boycott, divestment, sanctions, and legal action against a litany of international companies doing business in Israel. In addition to American companies, the U.N. targets include major European firms such as Veolia Environnement, Group 4 Security, the Dexia Group, the Volvo Group.
“The costs to companies and businesses of failing to respect international humanitarian law are considerable,” the report warns, “including damage to a company’s public image, impact on shareholder decisions and share price and could result in employees being criminally responsible for rights abuses.”
The report warns American employees of targeted companies that they face legal risks.
I would hope a Romney/Ryan administration would cut all foreign aid and farm aid to every country that boycotts US companies. . .the Arabs should enjoy eating sand and drinking oil.
Now it begins!!! Thanks Obummer!!
COOL! Maybe we can use this as the wedge to leverage to UN idjuts off our land and end our participation in this farcical organization!
WE SHOULD HAVE GOTTEN OUT OF THIS RADICAL LEFT WING NO GOOD FOR NOTHING ORGANIZATION A LONG TIME AGO. I CAN'T BELIEVE OUR POLITICIANS STILL FUND THIS GROUP. I LIKE THE TEXAS ATTITUDE TOWARD UN MONITORS. THEY SHOULD BE ARRESTED IF THEY SHOW UP.
This is a good idea!!
And they seem to get away with millions in violations and tickets that they never pay - no boot on their cars... oh, noooooo
That reminds me of a funny story ...lol. Anyway,
STOP THE U.N. NOW!!!
..ah tell the UN to go screw
Given the fact that the HRC is dominated by HR Violators, does this really surprise us? it should not!
Besides, who really gives a hoot what this bunch of HR "officials" have to say, given their own records, let's toss a few stones their direction to see if the glass breaks.
Just one more GREAT reason to get the United States out of the United Nations and the United Nations out of the United States . That corrupt , criminal , ant-humanity and anti-American organization should not be receiving ANY funding from the United States taxpayer , nor should they have ANY say on what America does and doesn't do . No intelligent American wants to hand over our 2nd Amendment rights to them , our parental rights over our children , our property rights under their agend 21 plan to steal our sovereignty as well as control over our private property . We have many problems with our own government , we don't need the United Nations adding to them .
