UNHRC 52: Condemning unfair treatment of Israel at the UNHRC

GENEVA - Representatives of the World Jewish Congress took the floor at the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) in Geneva during its 52nd session to alert the international community of the rising antisemitism and libelous allegations against Israel across the world. The WJC also highlighted the joint international and interfaith initiatives it undertakes, as well drew the Council’s attention to pressing topics such as racism and xenophobia that hinder peaceful societal coexistence.

Among WJC’s 13 statements was a joint statement on the prevention of genocide together with IBUKA Suisse, representing the survivors of the genocide against the Tutsi in Rwanda in 1994.

WJC provided an opportunity to its affiliated Jewish communities around the world to take the floor at the Human Rights Council during the adoption of the Universal Periodic Review (UPR) reports of their respective countries in order to propose concrete measures on how to further enhance efforts to combat antisemitism and create a flourishing Jewish community.
