    NAZARETH, (PIC)-- Israel announced that it refuses to cooperate with an independent international fact-finding mission which is due to “investigate the implications of the Israeli settlements on the civil, political, economic, social and cultural rights of the Palestinian people.”

    Israeli sources quoted an Israeli official as saying: “Israel will not cooperate with the fact finding mission,” describing the performance of the UN Human Rights Council as "preposterous".

    The Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu denounced the move and described the Council as hypocritical, “This is a hypocritical council with an automatic majority against Israel,” he said.

    The UN Human Rights Council on Thursday adopted a resolution to set up an independent probe into the effects of Jewish settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem on the Palestinians. The resolution was passed by 36 votes for, US against and ten abstentions.

    Why Israel won't and shouldn't co-operate with UNHRC.

    The UN Human Rights Council is a disgrace to the UN as a whole and should be renamed the UN Anti-Human Rights Council.

    The UN in general is a joke.
