JNS.org – Of a list of 79 reports to be dealt with at the upcoming 40th UN Human Rights Council meeting, seven will be dedicated to denouncing the State of Israel.

Not a single report is expected to address the alleged internment of some 1 million Uyghur and Turkic Muslims in isolated Chinese camps, despite the pleas of multiple human-rights organizations.

Additional reports will examine Malaysia, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka and Tunisia, with two reports each for Iran and Syria.

A list of resolutions up for vote is expected to be published soon, with UN Watch Executive Director Hillel Neuer telling The Jerusalem Post that five resolutions against Israel are anticipated. Most of the UNHRC’s resolutions are based on reports.

Among the reports are one about the blacklisting of businesses who do business with Jews residing in Judea, Samaria, eastern Jerusalem and the Golan Heights, and another about weekly riots conducted by Hamas-led Gaza Arabs on Israel’s border under the auspices of the “March of Return.”
