UNHRC to debate 'violations' in Gaza

The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) was due to hold Friday a special session on the conflict in Gaza Strip to examine a motion by Egypt, Pakistan and Cuba seeking condemnation of the Israeli offensive and of "grave" violations. The three countries, backed by members of the Arab League, Organization of Islamic Conference, non-aligned and African states, gained the support of 32 of the 47 Council members for the special debate, twice as much as required.

The strategy is starting to clarify - this is the first step in holding the Zionist state responsible for it's war crimes and crimes against humanity. This time it will be the United Nations Human Rights Council and the International Committee for the Red Cross making the case at the Hague, not just a "bunch of Arabs who hate Israel."
