UN guards reject Canadian for her pro-Israel views

Guards ejected an accredited Canadian commentator from the United Nations after she denounced a controversial report that focuses heavily on alleged Israeli war crimes.

Anne Bayefsky, a York University law professor, offered the only pro-Israel commentary Thursday night at a microphone outside the General Assembly hall following remarks by its Libyan president, Ali Treki, and the chief Palestinian official at the United Nations, Riyad Mansour.

Arab and Muslim countries had overcome Western opposition in the adoption of a resolution endorsing the report by South African Judge Richard Goldstone, which focuses on the Israeli assault last winter on Gaza.

Ms. Bayefsky said four guards confiscated two UN passes the organization had issued to her as director of Touro Law Center’s Institute on Human Rights and The Holocaust, and removed her from the building after questioning her.
