    I did not see any bashing in that article. I was not aware that Isreal was taking any diplomatic heat for this, can you provide a link?

    The Useless Nations is attacking Isreal for defending itself. Leave it to the panty wearing liberals.

    UN envoy attacks Israel over Gaza

    An emergency meeting of the UN's new human rights body on the Gaza crisis has heard condemnation of Israeli policy and its effects on civilians.
    Israel was violating in Gaza the "most fundamental norms of humanitarian law and human rights law", UN envoy John Dugard told the special session.

    But Israel, which threatens to broaden military action, said the Human Rights Council was ignoring its concerns.

    The meeting was called by Muslim states with support from Russia and others.

    UN aid agencies warn of a humanitarian crisis in the territory as Israel confronts the Hamas-led government.

    Food and medicines are running low, and there have been power and water shortages since the Israelis began military action last Tuesday.

    Bridges have been bombed along with the Strip's only power station.

    Aid workers had cautiously welcomed the debate in Geneva but feared it might become bogged down in a political slanging match, the BBC's Imogen Foulkes reports.

    'Bombarded and terrorised'

    Mr Dugard, the keynote UN speaker, told the session that Israel's conduct was "morally indefensible".

    Over 1,500 rounds of artillery have been showered on Gaza," he said.

    "Sonic booms terrorise the people. Transport has been seriously disrupted by the destruction of roads and bridges. Sanitation is threatened."

    While expressing sympathy for the Israeli soldier whose capture sparked Israel's offensive last week, he said that Israel's military action was a "disproportionate use of force against civilians".

    Mr Dugard, a UN special rapporteur on human rights in Gaza, also accused the so-called Quartet of Mid-East mediators - the US, EU, UN and Russia - of failing to rein in Israel.

    'Absurd' meeting

    Itzhak Levanon, Israel's ambassador to the UN in Geneva, said the session was a "planned and premeditated" attack on his country.

    And he suggested the newly created Council was continuing the alleged anti-Israeli bias of its discredited predecessor, the Human Rights Commission.

    "We find ourselves in an absurd situation in which the Human Rights Council, convened into urgent session, ignores the rights of one side and holds a special meeting to defend the rights of the other side," he said.

    The United States has also suggested that the Council is returning to what they see as the bad old ways of the discredited Human Rights Commission.

    That body often focused on Israel's alleged human rights abuses, while ignoring serious violations in other parts of the world, our correspondent notes.

    The special session may run into Thursday, diplomats say.

    Inevitable debate

    Given the situation in Gaza, there was never much chance that the subject would be ignored by the UN's top human rights body, the BBC's Imogen Foulkes in Geneva says.

    The request submitted by the Organisation of the Islamic Conference - a group of 57 largely Muslim states - argued there was a "serious and escalating situation" in Gaza.

    The resolution being debated calls on "Israel, the occupying power, [to] end its military operations in the occupied Palestinian territory... and refrain from imposing collective punishment on Palestinian civilians".

    Meanwhile, Israel's security cabinet instructed the army to begin a long battle focusing on "institutions and infrastructure facilitating terrorism" in response to a Palestinian rocket attack on the Israeli city of Ashkelon

    Nothing new there. The world only tolerates Jews when they're oppressed and hates them when they respond. Wrecks all those stereotypes.

    By the way, it's I-S-R-A-E-L, not Isreal.

    Why don't you get out of your usual "I'll do nothing but insult "libs" mode and try ... just try, making a real point for a change. It's in there somewhere.

    Now, you're talking about the extreme left of the Democratic party which sucks on this issue. It's not a "lib" issue, though, it's a "world" issue. They romanticize the Palestinian plight and stopped supporting the Jewish State sometime during the first intifada. Part of that comes from anti-semitism, but not all. Part of it comes from them no longer seeing Israel as underdogs. Part of it comes from romanticizing the Palestinians as "freedom fighters". And part of it comes from a lack of understanding of the genesis of the conflict.

    Do try again. I'm rooting for you.

    We can learn alot from Israel. First they had a buffer zone but weak politicians forced them to give it up

    Then they pulled out of Gaza

    Rockets flew into Israel.

    Israel gave up 1000 prisoners for 3 or 4 soldiers who were taken prisoner.

    You cannot talk to terrorists - much like how libs want us to reason with those who want to kill us

    Israel will not read the terrorists their "rights' and neither should we

    You are EXACTLY right. Libs Romanticize the PLO, and their terrorists. It's true, what was mentioned above - The world hates the two countries closest to God.
