Disgrace at the Inter-Parliamentary Union Human Rights Council

MK denied the right to speak at a meeting of members of parliament from around the world.

Sharren Haskel, Likud MK was present at a meeting of the Inter-Parliamentary Union’s Human Rights Council, and felt she had to speak up for Israel, which was being attacked.

When she tried to speak to make her points, she was booed and some delegates banged on their desks to drown out her voice, in defiance of the tone of the meetings.

She asked to be allowed to continue to speak, which she had the right to do, but was denied that right by the Bangladeshi chair of the meeting – you may recall that Bangladesh doesn’t recognize Israel.

World Israel News reported that the delegation walked out in protest at their treatment and for the anti-Israel proposals which included “calls for the release of convicted murderers Marwan Barghouti and Ahmad Saadat.”

“Israel was censured for holding in administrative detention members of the Palestinian National Council representing Hamas. There was no mention of the innocent Israeli civilians being held captive in Gaza by Hamas, which last month refused a request by the International Red Cross to visit them.”

Watch Haskel try to make Israel’s voice heard at this international meeting:

IPU Human Rights Council

אף אחד לא יסתום לי את הפה!יושב ראש הוועידה מבנגלדש, מדינה שלא מכירה בישראל החליט למנוע ממני לדבר. מתנגדי ישראל ואויביה יכולים לצעוק ולדפוק על השולחן בניסיון להשתיק אותנו – ואנחנו לא נשתוק! בסיום דברי, ולאחר שנותקתי מהמיקרופון, יצאה המשלחת הישראלית מהאולם במחאה. נציגי מדינות רבות ניגשו אלינו אחר כך וחיזקו את ידינו. אני גאה להיות אזרחית של מדינת ישראל, הדמוקרטיה היחידה במזה״ת.צפו בקטע מהמלחמה שאני מנהלת באיגוד הפרלמנטרי הבינ״ל המתקיים ברוסיה.
