The United Nations detained an outspoken critic and booted her from its New York headquarters in what the woman, a human rights watchdog, is calling an effort to silence her opposition to the world body.
Anne Bayefsky claims that as retaliation for giving a two-minute impromptu speech defending Israel, her 25-year career of monitoring the U.N. is now in jeopardy — likely to be placed in the hands of a committee chaired by the genocidal regime in Sudan.
Bayefsky is a Zionist and a defender of Israel.
In brief: “This is a resolution that purports to be even-handed. It is anything but. It’s a travesty. It calls for accountability and in fact what we see instead is impunity for the Palestinian side. . . . And barely more than half of the members voted for the resolution. So the General Assembly was made a laughing stock in terms of its credibility. . . . The idea that Hamas is going to investigate itself—a terrorist organization is going to decide for itself whether or not it violates the rule of law—is something that no serious democratic society will take seriously.”.
I think that the world of human rights has developed a weapon, I call it the ‘human rights weapon’. It’s one which inverts victim and perpetrator. It’s one which is designed to deflect attention from the human rights abuses by those who violate human rights. It is intended to circle the wagons, to invoke mass hysteria which suggest to people that they are under threat, which is in fact, imaginary. And to develop excuses for hatred and for terrorism. It’s a tried and trued formula after all isn’t it? To create imaginary enemies, to exaggerate what is a kernel of truth and to divert attention from the real violations in our midst.
They do everything they can to weaken and destroy the international human rights infrastructure so that Israel is never held accountable for its illegal occupation, siege of Gaza and more.

Good on them!
If you were surrounded and being perpetually fired upon, would you not use every means at your disposal to defend yourself? That is what she is doing for Israel. If that NGO doesn't who else has the guts to do it? Everybody else seems to have been caught with the Palestinian's "circled wagons" of political correctness and "human rights".
