The United Nations Human Rights Council produced a list of 112 companies it has concluded have ties to illegal Israeli settlements. These settlements are illegal under International law and breach the 4th Geneva Convention.
Kikki Haley, Former US ambassador to the Security Council, shamelessly condemns this decision and defends Israeli war crimes.
Despite the long list of human rights abusers (Venezuela, China, Cuba come to mind), Israel is the ONLY country the UN has targeted with a blacklist attempting to harm companies who do business in Israel. #Shameful @standamericanow

Pro-Palestine activists from “Vpalestine team” took a stand and raised their voices to clarify the truth.
Here are some of the team’s comments:
Because Israel has bypassed international laws by stealing Palestinian land, so this very seriously is a great crime

The UN is right to issue the blacklist of businesses operating in illegal Israeli settlements.
