Mary McGowan-Davis

UN finds another anti-Israel judge for its kangaroo court on Gaza after George Clooney's fiance backs out.

On August 25, 2014 the Muslim president of the UN Human Rights Council, Baudelaire Ndong Ella of Gabon, appointed a person heavily involved in prior UN anti-Israel activities to the new UN kangeroo court on events in Gaza.

From June 2010 till December 2011 Mary McGowan Davis was a member of the Goldstone "follow-up" commission and from December 2010 till March 2011 she chaired the commission. The Goldstone follow-up commission produced two reports calling for the implementation of the notorious Goldstone report which alleged that Israel intentionally targeted civilians during the 2008/2009 defensive operation known as Operation Cast Lead. Israel was finally responding to eight years of relentless Hamas rocket fire on Israeli civilian population centers.

Though Goldstone himself later retracted the slander, McGowan Davis championed it wholeheartedly.

McGowan-Davis is also on the board of the American Association for the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ).

Throughout her tenure as a board member, the ICJ has been repeatedly connected with the Human Rights Council's campaign to vilify Israel over the 2009 Gaza war, the Goldstone report, its follow-up and the latest inquisition created by the Council on July 23, 2014.

During the Council's July 2014 Special Session, the ICJ called for the establishment of the new commission, and accused Israel of "disproportionate and indiscriminate attacks" in Gaza as well as "breaches of international humanitarian law" and "gross violations of human rights law" - the very issues McGowan-Davis is now charged with investigating.

Her evident lack of neutrality is exactly why she was selected to participate in Goldstone II.
