Naim denounces nominating Israel to head UN Counter-Terrorism Committee

Basem Naim, chairman of Council on International Relations, denounced nominating Israel by Western European nations to become the head of the Sixth Committee of the General Assembly of the UN Counter-Terrorism Committee and issues of international law.
Naim condemned in a press release Wednesday choosing Israel despite it practices the systematic “State terrorism” against the Palestinians on daily basis, including murdering Palestinians, imposing a tight siege on 2m people in Gaza, building more settlements in the West Bank and Jerusalem, and demolishing homes.
” Choosing Israel is a reward for practicing terrorism. It contributes to impunity after three heinous wars Israel waged against Gaza in which thousands of Palestinians killed and dozens of thousands injured. This nomination confirms that Europe insists on throwing aside what it believes in of democracy, human right, and respecting the law” Naim confirmed.
CIR chairman called on Western European nations to withdraw the nomination, and held Israel accountable for the crimes it committed and still in Palestine.
