Last week, NGO Monitor sent a letter to the UN expressing concern over five of the six candidates being considered for the position of "Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the Palestinian Territory occupied since 1967." In the letter, NGO Monitor noted that "Special Rapporteurs are required to exhibit personal integrity, expertise, independence, impartiality, and objectivity. Unfortunately, at least five of the six eligible candidates (as appear on the OHCHR website) have records of substantial anti-Israel partisanship (see attached report). They cannot be said to fulfill the requirements of impartiality and objectivity as required by HRC resolution 5/1."

The letter was not made public.

But today, Palestinian NGO Al Haq - which has been linked to the PFLP terror  group - published the letter.

Which strongly indicates that someone in the UN leaked the letter to an organization with clear links to terror, that is now being investigated by the European Commission for possible terror ties. 

Shawan Jabarin, Al Haq's general director, is a convicted terrorist who maintains his membership and ties to the PFLP.  (And he is also a member of Human Rights Watch Middle East Advisory Board!) 

Al Haq itself - supposedly a human rights group - has never condemned PFLP terror attacks and does not seem to have ever condemned any Palestinian for any terror attack against Jews. It has downplayed and minimized the Hamas rockets from Gaza that reached Tel Aviv and killed multiple Israelis last May as merely  "homemade Palestinian rockets."

Al Haq has justified terrorist attacks against Israeli Jews as being legal: "Resistance against occupation and its arbitrary practices is legitimate under international law, and these acts are considered a part of the Palestinian people‘s resistance and struggle against occupation in order to achieve their right to liberation and independence, the occupation forces call it 'terrorism.'" 

So now we have a link between a UN Human Rights Council employee and a group whose leader is an unrepentant terrorist and which supports and condones terrorist attacks against Jews.

This is the cesspool that is the UN Human Rights Council.
