Just wondering what number of signatories will speak out for Palestinian human rights ... won't hold my breath 😅

But Canadian officials said that while ending the imprisonment of Kovrig and Spavor remained the country's top priority, the new declaration was meant to be a broad denunciation of the coercive practice around the world, including in North Korea, Iran and Russia.

Am I missing multiple, if not dozens of other countries across the globe? A pity, stinks like Western hypocrisy!

An excellent start would be all signatories of the recent Quid pro Quo "Abraham Accords ..,

United Arab Emirates, Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, Israel, Sudan, Morocco and the United States. Most of its prominent leaders are confronted with corruption and murder charges. Support the ICC.

Each continent of Earth has similar states with human rights issues ... states of the EU-27 included!

Pfizer Vaccines: Holding Palestinian People Hostage

A debate on the matter is both "criminal and shameful." The Red Cross clearly states that the obligation to observe humanitarian law does "not depend on reciprocity," Cassif explained.

He acknowledged that Hamas had acted "criminally" in holding the Israeli citizens captive and that it was also unacceptable and a violation of international law. But Cassif charged that Hamas' actions were akin to those of the IDF in the West Bank: the IDF enters

Palestinian homes in the middle of the night to "abduct" people and then holds them without charges. "This is no less terrible than what Hamas does," he said.

At one point a shouting match broke out between FADC chairman MK Tzvi Hauser (Derech Eretz) and Cassif.

Business as usual for "leadership" in Israel ... where is the outrage?

Talking about hostages and UN: didn't UN Special Rapporteur already call for the release of Mr. Assange. So PM wouldn't even need to wait and see, he could just let the man go.

I mean, Assange is not even prosecuted for anything in the UK.
