    "But Peter Mulrean of the United States, Israel's main ally, praised Israel for its "strong commitment and track record in upholding human rights, political freedoms and civil liberties." - how utterly disgusting. I'd like to see him give several examples of Israeli upholding of human rights, political freedoms and civil liberties. 1) upholding human rights? certainly for not for Arabs in the West Bank, Gaza or in Negev where forced displacement is still an issue and certainly not for African migrants. So we can only assume that the Israeli definition applies only to Jews. 2) Political Freedom? Israel routinely arrests Palestinians just for being registered members of legitimate Palestinian political parties, and on the Israeli side, the name of the game is appeasement to settlers while all others be damned. 3) Civil Liberties? Like the ones on display in the Arab districts of East Jerusalem? Hardly. Palestinian whether Israeli citizens or not, have no civil liberties. In short, Peter Mulrean is an idiot parroting the same gibberish of those that have come before him.
