From PressTV, Iran’s fair and balanced state news:

Canada’s staunch support for Israel during its 23-day war on Gaza has caused uproar at the United Nation’s Human Right’s body in Geneva.

During Canada’s first Universal Periodic Review (UPR) at the Human Rights Council in Switzerland, Toronto [ed: Canada?] was questioned on its unconditional sympathy for Israel.

“It is often asked why, in the Human Rights Council, Canada is the first and often the only country to ask for a vote and vote against issues that address the violations of human rights of the Palestinian people,” Pakistan’s Deputy Head of Mission to the UN, Tehmina Janjua, said on Tuesday.

PressTV – Canada grilled over Gaza record

I think that the Pakistani Deputy’s question is great; there should be many many more countries that do the same! Why is Canada the only one? I won’t even bother asking what business someone from Pakistan has on the Human Rights Council.
