A senior diplomatic source said Monday that the Foreign Ministry
management has decided to sever its ties with the United Nations
Human Rights Council (UNHRC). The decision was reached after the
UNHRC decided to appoint a committee of inquiry to look into
construction of Israeli communities in Judea and Samaria.
The source said that the decision stems from a series of unilateral
moves that the "Palestinians" are trying to lead against Israel.
According to Monday´s decision, Israel´s UN Ambassador, Ron Prosor,
will not appear before the Council and will not reply to requests by
the UNHRC for materials and for the coordination of visits in Israel.
The source added that while thousands are being murdered in Syria and
a massacre takes place in France, the UNHRC lends equal importance to
construction in Judea and Samaria.
Regarding the High Court decision on Migron, the senior source said
that the verdict must be honored. "Everyone accepts the High Court´s
decision," he said. "The test is in the alternatives that the
government offers the residents."
The source said that Yisrael Beitenu´s threat to leave the government
over Migron referred to a situation in which the government decides
to carry out a forcible eviction. At present, he said, there is no
threat to leave the government because of the High Court decision.
