UN rights expert accuses Israel of excessive force against Palestinians



JPost: “The UN human rights investigator for Gaza and the West Bank called on Israel on Thursday to investigate what he called excessive force used by Israeli security forces against Palestinians and to prosecute perpetrators.

Makarim Wibisono, United Nations special rapporteur on human rights in the Palestinian territories, also challenged Israeli authorities to charge or release all Palestinian prisoners being held under lengthy administrative detention, including children.

“The upsurge in violence is a grim reminder of the unsustainable human rights situation in the Occupied Palestinian Territory and the volatile environment it engenders,” he said in a final report to the Human Rights Council.”

Opinion: The same scenario plays out over and over. Palestinians fire rockets intended to maim and kill – Israel is accused of excessive force. Palestinians stab and kill Israeli men, women and children – Israel is blamed.

Someday, sometime, God is going to end this cycle of violence (Obadiah 1:18).

It has been a long time by our standards but not by His. The diaspora that began in AD 70 is coming to an end. The Jews are returning home and according to Amos 9:15 and Ezekiel 39:22, God will not leave any behind.

Irony: In the great prophesied wars to come, Israel will be the safest place to be.
