Once again, the UN in the service of Israel

Yossi Schwartz ISL (RCIT section in Israel/Occupied Palestine), 07.03.2024

Pramila Patten, the UN envoy for sexual violence in conflict, was in Israel to collect details on the allegation. In a message to the alleged victims released by the Israeli president’s office, Patten said: “Please come forward, please break your silence.” No Israeli woman has come to testify on an alleged rape.

Patten has arrived to Israel after a report by the NYT that claimed in December that Hamas raped Israeli women was exposed as a lie by the intercept.

Reports emerged that members of the New York Times staff were deeply divided over the legitimacy of the report, which was written by Pulitzer Prize–winner Jeffrey Gettleman, with Anat Schwartz and Adam Sella, that described in detail alleged accounts of Hamas’s use of rape, sexual violence, and assault against women

Just days after the NYT article was published, Israeli daily Haaretz reported that the country’s police said authorities were having difficulty” finding “victims of sexual assault from the Hamas attack.

The police are having difficulty locating victims of sexual assault from the Hamas attack, or people who witnessed such attacks, and decided to appeal to the public to encourage those who have information on the matter to come forward,” Haaretz reported” [1]

The intercept uncovered the fake testimony of Zaka that reported the rape of women that simply do not exist.

There are no forensic evidence and yet Pramila Patten concluded based on her meetings with

“The team found that there was substantial evidence to conclude that victims, as well as hostages and survivors of October 7, were sexually abused and raped by Hamas terrorists. This is the first instance where an international organization has confirmed what Israel has alleged since October 7″ [2]

“Patten, therefore, called on Hamas to “immediately and unconditionally release all individuals held in captivity and to ensure their protection, including from sexual violence” [3]

“The U.N. team said it also received information from institutional and civil society sources and direct interviews, about “sexual violence against Palestinian men and women in detention settings, during house raids and at checkpoints” after Oct. 7. The detention centers were in Israel.

The U.N. team said it raised the allegations with the Israeli Ministry of Justice and Military Advocate General, which said no complaints of sexual violence against members of the Israeli Defense Forces had been received”

This was sufficient for the team to conclude that no Palestinian was raped. Thus, even without forensic evidence or first-hand complaints, the team found that there is enough evidence to support the claims of Israel.

To say it in simple words this team serves the genocide of the people of Gaza.

 Down with the Zionist apartheid state from the river to the sea!

For Palestine red and free from the river to the sea!
