Verhagen bepleit minder aandacht voor mensenrechten Palestijnen

In een Kamerbrief inzake de Mensenrechtenraad deelt minister Verhagen de inzet van Nederland voor de 15e zitting mee. Eerlijk gezegd, de tranen sprongen me in de ogen. Daar waar de minister in het geval van Soedan ooit meldde "Nobody is above the law", noemde hij het bloedbad in Gaza "niet disproportioneel". Nog hypocrieter is dat hij in de brief zijn mening - erger nog: de mening van "Nederland", dus ook in mijn naam! - kracht bijzet met drie fact finding missions waar hij in naam van Nederland tégen heeft gestemd.

Minister Verhagen schijnt niet te beseffen dat hoe meer en vaker politici zoals hij de mensenrechtenschendingen van Israël beschermen en verdedigen, hoe meer verontwaardiging dat teweeg brengt bij de VN en de internationale rechtsorde. Het Palestijnse vluchtelingenprobleem is inmiddels het oudste vluchtelingenprobleem in de geschiedenis. Enablers als Verhagen genereren juist veel aandacht voor, en verontwaardiging over, de Israëlische bezetting en mensenrechtenschendingen. Zijn Kamerbrief is zodoende weer een monument van hypocrisie.

Minister Maxime Verhagen, hier met oorlogsmidadiger Ehud Barak, ontving op 29 april j.l. een prijs van het American Jewish Committee (AJC) voor o.a. zijn boycot van racismeconferentie Durban II en "zijn inzet voor democratische waarden en zijn diepe vriendschap met Israel". Het Ministerie van Buitenlandse Zaken verzwijgt echter de prijs, en doet alsof het slechts een "toespraak" van Verhagen betrof. Over zijn prijs verschenen ook geen nieuws- of persberichten. Dat niemand in Nederland mag weten dat een joodse politieke lobbygroep Verhagen een prijs uitreikt voor gedane diensten spreekt boekdelen. Lees hierover ook: Joodse lobby bedankt Maxime Verhagen
