UN Mission Condemns Israeli Settlements

UN demands Israel remove its settlers.

by Stephen Lendman

On January 31, the UN International Fact-Finding Mission on Israeli Settlements in the Occupied Palestinian Territory published damning findings.

Access them in full through the following link .

They revealed multiple international law violations. Settlements compromise fundamental Palestinian human rights.

Violations are "interrelated." They comprise "part of an overall pattern of breaches." 

They're "characterized principally by the denial of the right to self-determination and systemic discrimination against the Palestinian people which occur on a daily basis."

"Since 1967, Israeli governments have openly led, directly participated in, and had full control of the planning, construction, development, consolidation and encouragement of settlements."

Christine Chanet headed the UN mission. She's a consummate French government insider. From 1992 - 1996, she was Paris Court of Appeals advocate-general.

Since 1996, she's been a Court of Cassation judge. It's France's civil/criminal court of last resort. It's the equivalent of America's Supreme Court.

She represents the UN Human Rights Committee. She's held various other government positions. 

They include Ecole Nationale de la Magistrature junior magistrate (1970), Ministry of Justice Central Administration magistrate (1970), Secretariat of State for Women's Affairs technical advisor and special assistant (1974), and Secretary of State for Culture special assistant (1976).

They also include Ministry of External Affairs Legal Affairs Directorate special assistant (1981), French Foreign Affairs Ministry International Civil and Criminal Affairs and Human Rights Department head (1983), and French Office of Minister of Justice technical advisor (1988).

Since 1996, she served on the UN Human Rights Committee. Twice she was chairperson.
