Michèle Taylor, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva, denounced the report released last week by the open-ended Commission of Inquiry (COI) on Israel that branded the Jewish state’s presence in Judea and Samaria as illegal under international law. 

“We are deeply concerned by the Israel Commission of Inquiry’s one-sided report, which contributes to the polarization of the situation and does not advance prospects for peace,” Taylor tweeted on Saturday evening. “The COI’s open-ended nature and vague scope, along with the anti-Semitic remarks made by a member of the commission, further demonstrate the disproportionate, biased treatment of Israel at the HRC.” 

Taylor’s remarks follow the report’s overwhelming condemnation by Jewish organizations internationally.

Who will tell the truth about Israel in 2023?

Few things are certainties in a fast-changing world.

But there’s little doubt that the rising tide of antisemitism and demonization of Israel will continue to worsen in the upcoming year.

A publication that you can trust to supply you with accurate information as well as the sort of analysis and opinion that puts it all in perspective is absolutely vital.

JNS is an oasis of truth.
