More stupidity from the United Nations.

The Anti-Defamation League (ADL) said the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights had "followed the lead of her predecessors" by unfairly putting the onus on Israel for humanitarian conditions in Gaza, while giving the Palestinian terrorist group that controls the territory a pass.

In a statement issued today, U.N. High Commissioner Navi Pillay called for an immediate end to the Israeli blockade of Gaza, saying that "…Palestinian men, women and children have been forcibly deprived of their most basic human rights for months." The commissioner's statement concluded with a brief sentence calling for an end to "Israeli incursions into Gaza and Palestinian rocket fire into Israel."

U.N. Human Rights Commissioner Unfairly Blames Israel, Gives Hamas A Pass

I'm personally stunned by the statement. I didn't think that Palestinian rocket fire into Israel came into his brief or that a U.N. official was permitted to conced that such things even existed (especially during the time of a ceasefire/truce/lull or whatever).
