Unprecedented UN Commission Exposes Prejudice and Anti-Israel Bias

Recently, the United Nations Commission of Inquiry tasked with probing allegations against Israelis on behalf of Palestinians has been thrust into the international limelight. This is due to the recent revelation surrounding three of its investigators: Miloon Kothari, Navi Pillay, and Chris Sodati, who have all displayed anti-Israel sentiments.

Miloon Kothari is one of the Commission’s investigators and leader. He has come under intense scrutiny for previously making comments that were seen as virulently anti-Israel. In particular, he had asserted that there were “no good Israeli soldiers” and that they were “all criminals”. Despite these inflammatory statements, Navi Pillay defended them and even attempted to minimize their significance in a statement released on behalf of the Commission. Following this controversy, Kothari eventually apologized for his remarks; however, Israel’s Foreign Ministry rebuked it as “pathetic and unconvincing”.

Another investigator associated with the commission is Chris Sodati. He has a long history of involvement with pro-Palestinian nongovernmental organizations (NGOs). His link to these organizations raises questions about his impartiality as an investigator and casts doubts about the integrity of the Commission at large. Not only this, but many of these organizations actively advocate for boycotts against Israel which ultimately aim at eliminating the Jewish State entirely.

The creation of this UN Commission itself is unprecedented in its open-ended mandate to monitor Israeli actions; yet there are serious issues concerning its legitimacy due to numerous indications of bias against Israel as revealed by its own members. It should be noted that Israel refuses to cooperate with this investigation due to such discrimination against them; however, it remains unclear what further action they may take due to their refusal to be part of it.

In conclusion, this situation serves as an important reminder that prejudice still exists in international relations today despite attempts by organizations like the UN to maintain diplomatic neutrality between nations. There needs to be more transparency within these institutions when it comes terms of investigating international conflicts so that any potential biases or prejudices are exposed before further action can be taken by those involved. The case involving this Commission should serve as a wake-up call for all involved parties when it comes to understanding how bias can influence investigations if not addressed adequately from the outset.
