UN Human Rights Commissioner a Cheerleader for Israel Bashers - Neal Sher (Los Angeles Jewish Journal)
Louise Arbour, the UN high commissioner for human rights, has been nothing short of a cheerleader for Israel bashers.  Her most recent display of animus toward the Jewish state takes the form of gushing praise for the Arab Charter on Human Rights.

While this oxymoronic document pays lip service to a laundry list of human and political rights (most of which are honored in their breach in the Arab world), it leaves no doubt in its Preamble where the Arab League stands on Israel and Jews, by "rejecting racism and Zionism, which constitute a violation of human rights and pose a threat to world peace." So sinister is Zionism, that Article I admonishes the Arab states to "endeavor to eliminate" it.
