(Communicated by the MFA Spokesperson)
Once again, Ms. Pillay,
via a statement issued by the High Commissioner's spokesperson on 24
September 2013 has published a misconceived, inaccurate and misleading
statement, illustrating the institutionalized, dysfunctional, and
hypocritical stance of the High Commissioner of Human Rights towards
Ms. Pillay has yet again demonstrated her obsessive Israel-bashing by dedicating, once more, a section of her press brief to Israel
while failing to make mention of significant atrocities committed by nation states, taking place across the globe.
High Commissioner for Human Rights has been bequeathed a mandate,
which, if deployed correctly, should be able to shift perspectives and
serve an important role in the betterment of the world. Regrettably, one
can only conceive of all the global victims of human rights violations,
and how their interests could be better represented, if Ms. Pillay
spent just a fraction of her time focusing on their plight, rather than
reiterating daily reminders relating to Israel. She is setting herself
to become, regrettably, a one-issue Commissioner.
