Today, Breitbart.com reported that the U.N. Human Rights Council (HRC) is calling for a boycott of all American companies that do business with Israel. The HRC is made up of such champions of human rights as Cuba, Libya, and Saudi Arabia. If you believe that human rights flourish in these countries, try to build a Christian church in either Libya or Saudi Arabia.
The article reports:
The HRC is calling for “legal and economic warfare” on Caterpillar, Motorola, and Hewlett-Packard, because these companies refuse to quit doing business with Israel. Companies in Europe targeted for boycott include Volvo, the Dexia Group, and Group 4 Security.
The Obama-approved HRC keeps an investigator who monitors so-called violations of “human rights” by Israelis in “the Palestinian territories.” The current investigator, professor emeritus of international law Richard Falk (Princeton), is “a 9/11 truther” who is known for his anti-Semitic views.
The latest report from the HRC attempts to frighten companies into anti-Israel compliance by warning that individual employees of Caterpillar, Motorola, and Hewlett-Packard may be targeted if the pressure on company execs does not succeed.
The obvious questions here is, “What about the rights of the individual employees of these companies?” This seems like bullying more than it seems like protecting human rights.
