The larger United Nations is NOT sympathetic to Jews, but even they can not fly in the face of what is blatantly obvious.....Hamas in Gaza is engaged in hostilities with Israel, and that makes the blockade legal......
Now all they can do is complain that the Jews actually shoot people instead of allowing themselves to be stabbed and beaten to death........
Ah, for the good old days with Dr. Mengele at the yards in Auschwitz, eh????
Your information is dated.
The United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) is an inter-governmental body withi the United Nations System. The UNHRC is the successor to the United Nations Commission on Human Rights (UNCHR, herein CHR), and is a subsidiary body of the United Nations General Assembly. The council works closely with the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) and engages the United Nations' Special Procedures.
The General Assembly established the UNHRC by adopting a resolution (A/RES/60/251) on 15 March 2006, in order to replace the previous CHR, which had been heavily criticised for allowing countries with poor human rights records to be members.
The members of the new version of this committee include the US, the UK, Switzerland and other well known Jew hating countries... Canada was a member of the new Council until last year when our term expired.

If you are being attacked on the deck of a ship and are in danger of being swept overboard in a blast of high pressure water, or in a struggle in which losing your footing puts you at the mercy of knife and club wielding Islama-loonies..., then YES a fire hose is a lethal weapon.
That would mean the IDF has nothing to loose by releasing the complete unedited versions of their videos and the confiscated videos. But they won't release the raw videos, which is a big clue about their contents...
Here is a quote from the report:
At least one of those killed, Furkan Doğan, was shot at extremely close range.427 Mr. Doğan sustained wounds to the face, back of the skull, back and left leg. That suggests he may already have been lying wounded when the fatal shot was delivered, as suggested by witness accounts to that effect.
Witness testimony backed up by forensic evidence is enough to convict someone in most courts.
No evidence has been provided to establish that any of the deceased were armed with lethal weapons.429 Video footage shows one passenger430 holding only an open fire hose being killed by a single shot to the head or throat fired from a speedboat.431
Regarding bias of this committee, I doubt the former New Zealand PM who chaired this committeed and put his name on this report is biased Israel.
