It’s a Middle East peace process Jim, but not as we know it (part of a continuing series)

The United Nations Human Rights Council passed a resolution last week condemning Israel’s oppression of Druze villagers living on the Golan Heights.

The resolution says that the council is “Deeply concerned at the suffering of the Syrian citizens in the occupied Syrian Golan due to the systematic and continuous violation of their fundamental and human rights by Israel since the Israeli military occupation of 1967.” The resolution further states as illegal the 1981 Israeli annexation of the Golan Heights, adding that Israel must cease settlement construction there.
The council’s resolution calls on Israel to “desist from imposing Israeli citizenship and Israeli identity cards on the Syrian citizens” in the Golan Heights and to allow them to visit their relatives in Syria.

Too bad nobody told the Druze that they’d be much better off in Syria.
