The Jathika Hela Urumaya (JHU) said today that the High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay should reveal her stance regarding the violation of international military law and international human rights in Palestine.
“We ask Navi Pillay what her stance is on the genocide in Palestine. She should declare her stance to the world regarding that. But she seems to be silent when the international military law and international human rights were being violated in Palestine,” JHU national organiser and Western Provincial Councillor Nishantha Sri Warnasinghe said.
Mr. Warnasinghe accused the UN Human Rights Commissioner of pursuing double standards on certain countries in the world and added that her silence on the Palestine genocide implies that her approach had been different in some countries of the world.
“Ms. Pillay termed it a war crime when a Malaysian Airlines plane was shot down in Ukraine. But she keeps mum on the Palatine genocide and regarding the abduction of 200 students by Boko Haram militants in Nigeria.” Mr. Warnasinghe told a news conference in Colombo.(Ajith Siriwardana)

She is deeply concerned on issues in Palestine but no action taken into consideration. It is a smart way of avoiding important issues. Besides that she is in the pay roll of US.

No one dare go against the Israelis, even Ban Ki Moon does not raise her voice against and loose her position. USA does say Israel has the right to protect itself and bomb the GAZA and kill the innocents. Can Pillay do something new?

Navi Pillai's Tamil origin plus the US force have forced her to be partial in Sri Lankan case. UN should be ashamed of the way she has taken her official authority for partiality towards in this case.

JHU is and out of touch.
Navipillay has strongly condemned Israel, accused it of war crimes and calls for an investigation.
Stop showing ignorance. Read the news.

Any body can condemn but the crux of the matter is what is Pillay doing stop this aggression by using her powers. So people should be careful of making wild and foolish comments.
