Remember the Swiss? Cloaking themselves in some moral balnket of neutrality. Yeah right. Washing the stolen money and art for the Germans during World War II, laundering the blood stained money of the largest state sponsors of terror, Iran, Iraq, and Cuba and now this.
Swiss blasted for anti-Israel UN vote Jerusalem Post hat tip rut
Switzerland has "joined forces with countries that have little regard for human rights" in its vote in support of a UN Human Rights Council resolution on Thursday condemnding Israel over the escalating violence in Gaza, according to the American Jewish Committee.
In a letter to Swiss Foreign Minister Micheline Calmy-Rey on Sunday, the AJC blasted the move as "detrimental" to "efforts to rectify the situation in the Human Rights Council, and even more importantly, to promote peace in the Middle East."
"Most appallingly, the resolution fails to even mention the terror attack perpetrated last week by a Palestinian gunman against a Jewish seminary in Jerusalem, in which eight students were murdered, although this heinous crime was committed on the same day that the Human Rights Council adopted its resolution," reads the letter, signed by AJC's director David Harris and president Richard Sideman.
