Its policies are extreme enough to make some despots blush. How do you characterize unconscionable oppression. Nonviolent Palestinians are terrorized for not being Jewish.

Their land, homes and other property are stolen and/or destroyed. They're denied their own resources. Free movement, expression, and assembly are prohibited. Building on privately owned land is criminalized.

Ethnic cleansing is policy. So is institutionalized racism. Fundamental international laws are spurned. It's long past time to hold Israel accountable.

Alarm was expressed about its culture of impunity. Virtually all Palestinian rights are denied. They face "violent intimidation, severe restrictions," and denial of their self-determination right. The International Court of Justice (ICJ) called granting it "one of the essential principles of contemporary international law."

The UN is responsible for protecting and promoting universal human rights. It's obligated to act against international law violations. From inception, it failed to do so repeatedly.

Al Haq and other PHROC organizations want the Human Rights Council to address systematic Israeli lawlessness. Action is needed now. Enforcing accountability is essential.

No one is above the law - no nation, organization or individual. Member States are obligated to act. It's high time they fulfilled responsibilities they're sworn to uphold. Delay, whitewashing crimes, and excuse making no longer wash.
