European Union members joined the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in an overwhelmingly anti-Israel vote on Friday, singling out Israel for rights violations while virtually ignoring those of Syria and other countries.
UNHRC concluded ts 25th session with a 46-1 vote on four resolutions condemning Israeli treatment of Palestinians. It also condemned Israeli human rights abuses against Syrian citizens of Israel who live on the Golan Heights, voting 33 to 1, with 13abstentions, The Jerusalem Post reported.
Nine EU member states supported the condemnations: Germany, France, Italy, Britain Austria, Romania, the Czech Republic, Estonia and Ireland.
Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu on Sunday lambasted the U.N. body for “absurdly” condemning Israel while censuring Syria and Iran only once.
“This march of hypocrisy is continuing and we will continue to condemn it and expose it,” he told his cabinet at the start of its weekly meeting.
Out of the 42 resolutions passed by the UNHRC, only 10 censured a specific country, of those, five were directed against Israel.
As an Israeli official noted, the abovementioned Golan resolution comes at a time when hospitals in northern Israel are treating scores of Syrian victims from the brutal civil war.

conduct of the EU members, the official said, “It’s a pity that some Western democracies choose to jump on the automatic anti-Israel bandwagon at the UNHRC. It is a pity they did not use that moment to demonstrate moral leadership, instead of that they became part of the travesty. They became partners in a cynical one-sided farce,” the official said.
The official praised the United States, the only country to stand with Israel and vote against all five resolutions.
