The 41st Session of the UN Human Rights Council continued the bias and hypocrisy that has come to define the UN in general and the UNHRC in particular. NGO Monitor was present, speaking before the Council and documenting the numerous false accusations made by self-proclaimed human rights NGOs.
On April 25, 2019, three UN Special Rapporteurs issued a statement supporting HRW Israel/Palestine Director and long-time BDS activist Omar Shakir, who failed to convince an Israeli court to force the Interior Ministry to grant him a new work visa.
On April 17, 2019, the United Church of Canada (UCC) published a response to NGO Monitor’s April 3 op-ed in the Hill Times. In it, UCC attacks Canada’s consensus position on the IHRA definition of antisemitism and BDS, and refers to these as “false allegations of anti-Semitism.”
