Griffith didn't surprise. He left him unmentioned. He pointed fingers the wrong way.
"We have consistently condemned indiscriminate rocket attacks into Israel which are contrary to international humanitarian law and do nothing to help the people of Gaza," he claimed.
Collective punishment is official Israeli policy. Occupation is ruthlessly enforced. So is Gaza's siege. Jews alone matter. Palestinians are considered subhuman. They're persecuted like Nazis treated Jews.
Britain's Foreign Office doesn't notice. Israeli state terror is ignored. Palestinian suffering doesn't matter. Griffith's letter showed contempt for what's right. It revealed UK "impartiality" is just a figure of speech.
From January 21 - February 1, the UN Human Rights Council (HRC) holds its 15th session Universal Periodic Review (UPR) Working Group.
On January 29, Israel is assessed. Expect its worst crimes to be whitewashed. High Commissioner Navi Pillay is a reliable imperial tool. She blames victims for Western crimes.
She'll go easy on Israel. Netanyahu's taking no chances. Maan News said "Israel is expected to boycott" HRC's session.
In December 2008, Israel was last reviewed. It attended. Boycotting would be unprecedented. It's minor compared to mass murder.
Israel tolerates no criticism. Last May, it suspended HRC relations. It called its slaps on the wrist biased. It requested postponing the January 29 session.
