Jean Ziegler, the UN's Special Rapporteur on the Right to Food, authored a perversely one-sided report on the Lebanon war manufactured to address his mandate about food. Not surprisingly, it was warmly welcomed by every Arab and Muslim country speaking in the Human Rights Council. Ziegler describes the war as between Israel and "the armed forces of the Lebanese political party, Hezbollah." The word "terrorist" appears only in a quote of an Israeli leaflet. The lesson on how to gain Human Rights Council approval is clear: condemn Israel and ignore the true intentions and terrorist means of those who seek to destroy it.
