You Can Find Me In The Globe and Mail
On Monday the Globe and Mail ran an editorial piece praising Canada for being the only country on the UN Human Rights council to vote against Israel's "grave violations" in Gaza. It also went on to say that the entire council was bias and the vote was "unworthy of its noble mandate."
The part that really irked me was this:
"at odds with the abstentions of other Western countries that were unwilling to defend outright the principle of fairness, to say nothing of the role of the Arab, African, Asian and Latin American countries, including such human-rights abusers as China, Cuba and Saudi Arabia (all, shamefully, members of the council) in singling out Israel for condemnation." -- rest of the article
The next day, I wrote a letter to the editor and it got published.
