إسرائيل ترفض التعاون مع لجنة تحقيق أممية بشأن انتهاكاتها بحق الفلسطينيين رفضت إسرائيل الخميس التعاون مع لجنة خاصة شكَّلها مجلس حقوق الإنسان في الأمم المتحدة للتحقيق في انتهاكاتها ضد الفلسطينيين، وذلك بعد تكهنات بأن الغارات الجوية التي نفذتها إسرائيل على غزة في مايو/أيار 2021 تضمنت جرائم حرب.  أعلنت إسرائيل رسمياً الخميس أنها لن تتعاون مع لجنة خاصة شكلها مجلس حقوق الإنسان في الأمم المتحدة للتحقيق في انتهاكات ضد الفلسطينيين، قائلة إن التحقيق ورئيسته متحيزين ضد إسرائيل.  وذكرت صحيفة "هآرتس" العبرية أنّ وزارة الخارجية الإسرائيلية رفضت الخميس طلب اللجنة برئاسة المبعوثة الأممية "نافي بيلاي" القدوم إلى إسرائيل ليكون ذلك جزءاً من التحقيق في الحرب التي اندلعت بغزة في مايو/أيار الماضي.  وحسب "هآرتس" بعثت سفيرة إسرائيل لدى مؤسسات الأمم المتحدة في جنيف، ميراف شاحار، رسالة إلى بيلاي، مفادها أن تل أبيب ترى بها "شخصية تقود أجندة مناهضة لإسرائيل".  وكان المجلس أنشأ لجنة تقصٍّ مكونة من ثلاثة أشخاص في مايو/أيار الماضي بعد أيام من حرب استمرت 11 يوماً بين إسرائيل والمقاومة الفلسطينية، قتلت فيها إسرائيل أكثر من 260 فلسطينياً بينهم عشرات النساء والأطفال، كما قتل 14 شخصاً في إسرائيل على يد المقاومة.  ووقتها أعلنت مفوضة حقوق الإنسان ميشيل باشيليه أن الأفعال الإسرائيلية التي تضمنت غارات جوية على مناطق مدنية قد تعد جرائم حرب.   ومنذ ذلك الحين قال عدد من الجماعات الحقوقية الدولية ومنها هيومن رايتس ووتش إنه يبدو أن الهجمات الإسرائيلية تمثل جرائم حرب. وأوضحت باشيليه وهيومن رايتس ووتش أن إطلاق حركة حماس العشوائي للصواريخ على مدن إسرائيلية انتهك أيضاً قوانين الحرب الدولية.  وتشمل مسؤوليات اللجنة ما هو أكبر من الحرب في غزة، فلجنة التقصي هي الأداة الأكثر فاعلية لدى المجلس لكشف الانتهاكات حقوقية والاعتداءات.  ويشمل التفويض الذي تحمله هذه اللجنة مراقبة انتهاكات حقوقية في إسرائيل وغزة والضفة الغربية المحتلة. وهي أول لجنة تقصٍّ من نوعها تحمل تفويضاً "مستمراً".  ودأبت إسرائيل على اتهام الأمم المتحدة، وبخاصة مجلس حقوق الإنسان، بالتحيز، إذ تعد إسرائيل هي الدولة الوحيدة في العالم التي يُطرح سجلها الحقوقي للنقاش في كل جلسة للمجلس.  كما رفضت إسرائيل مراراً الدعوات الدولية لإجراء تحقيقات في سلوكها وقت الحرب ومعاملتها للفلسطينيين.  وفشلت تل أبيب في ديسمبر/كانون الأول الماضي في تمرير مقترح أمام الجمعية العامة للأمم المتحدة لإلغاء ميزانية لجنة تقصي الحقائق التي شكلها مجلس حقوق الإنسان الأممي، إذ صوّت ضد المقترح الإسرائيلي 125 دولة، تقدمتهم مجموعة الـ77 والصين والمجموعة العربية، فيما لم ينل المقترح سوى تأييد 8 أصوات بينها إسرائيل والولايات المتحدة.  وفتحت المحكمة الجنائية الدولية في لاهاي تحقيقاً في جرائم حرب إسرائيلية محتملة، وهو تحقيق تقول إسرائيل إن الدافع وراءه هو معاداة السامية وجزء من حملة دولية ”لنزع الشرعية عنها”.  فيما قال عدد متزايد من الجماعات الحقوقية، بما في ذلك هيومن رايتس ووتش ومنظمة العفو الدولية وجماعات إسرائيلية محلية، إن معاملة إسرائيل للفلسطينيين، بما في ذلك الأقلية العربية، ترقى إلى مستوى الفصل العنصري، فيما ترفض إسرائيل بشدة هذه التسمية باعتبارها معادية للسامية.     Israel refuses to cooperate with a UN commission of inquiry into its violations against the Palestinians On Thursday, Israel refused to cooperate with a special commission set up by the United Nations Human Rights Council to investigate its violations against Palestinians, following speculation that the air strikes carried out by Israel in Gaza in May 2021 included war crimes.  Israel officially announced Thursday that it will not cooperate with a special commission set up by the United Nations Human Rights Council to investigate violations against Palestinians, saying the investigation and its head are biased against Israel.  The Hebrew newspaper "Haaretz" reported that the Israeli Foreign Ministry rejected the request of the committee headed by the UN envoy, "Navi Pillay" to come to Israel as part of the investigation into the war that erupted in Gaza last May.  According to "Haaretz", Israel's ambassador to the United Nations in Geneva, Merav Shahar, sent a message to Pillay, stating that Tel Aviv sees her as "a figure who leads an anti-Israel agenda."  The council had established a three-person investigation committee last May, days after an 11-day war between Israel and the Palestinian resistance, in which Israel killed more than 260 Palestinians, including dozens of women and children, and 14 people were killed in Israel at the hands of the resistance.  At the time, the Commissioner for Human Rights, Michelle Bachelet, declared that Israeli actions, which included air strikes on civilian areas, may constitute war crimes.  Since then, a number of international rights groups, including Human Rights Watch, have said that the Israeli attacks appear to constitute war crimes. Bachelet and Human Rights Watch explained that Hamas' indiscriminate firing of rockets at Israeli cities also violated international laws of war.  The commission's responsibilities include more than the war in Gaza. The Commission of Inquiry is the council's most effective tool for exposing human rights violations and attacks.  This commission's mandate includes monitoring human rights abuses in Israel, Gaza and the occupied West Bank. It is the first commission of inquiry of its kind to carry a "ongoing" mandate.  Israel has repeatedly accused the United Nations, especially the Human Rights Council, of bias, as Israel is the only country in the world whose human rights record is discussed in every session of the Council.  Israel has also repeatedly rejected international calls for investigations into its wartime conduct and treatment of Palestinians. Last December, Tel Aviv failed to pass a proposal before the United Nations General Assembly to cancel the budget of the fact-finding committee set up by the UN Human Rights Council, as 125 countries voted against the Israeli proposal, presented by the Group of 77, China and the Arab Group, while the proposal received only support 8 votes, including Israel and the United States.  The International Criminal Court in The Hague has opened an investigation into possible Israeli war crimes, one that Israel says is motivated by anti-Semitism and part of an international campaign to "delegitimize it".  A growing number of rights groups, including Human Rights Watch, Amnesty International and local Israeli groups have said that Israel's treatment of Palestinians, including the Arab minority, amounts to apartheid, and Israel strongly rejects the label as anti-Semitic.
