United State : No one knows about Democratic Senator Maggie Hassan’s meeting with Netanyahu in occupied Jerusalem. Why? Washington - He may be persona non grata in the White House, but Democratic Senator Maggie Hassan was happy to sit with extremist Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu earlier this week.  The two sides discussed “the main challenges and opportunities facing the United States and Israel, and the necessity of cooperation in the field of artificial intelligence,” according to a statement issued by Netanyahu’s office.  The statement added, “Prime Minister Netanyahu thanked Senator Hassan for her continued support for Israel.”  Interestingly, there is no press release from Hassan about the matter, and her meeting was not mentioned on her official US Senate website, personal page, or social media accounts. According to Google News, there have been no reports of their meeting in the American press.  Michael Graham, managing editor of Inside Source, noted that Laura Epstein, Senator Hassan's spokeswoman, declined to answer repeated questions from the New Hampshire Journal about the meeting.  Hassan's pages on social media included pictures of her visiting health services in Kos County, but there is no mention of her visit to occupied Jerusalem or the conversation with the "right-wing extremist" Netanyahu.  It is not known why Hassan obscured the visit, but her spokeswoman said earlier that the senator visited Israel as part of an official congressional trip .  "Why didn't Hasan tell voters in New Hampshire about her visit?" Graham asked.  Many commentators mocked the “secret visit” and said it was “an example of the hypocrisy of a current in the Democratic Party” when it comes to Israel.  Maggie Hassan, a prominent American Democratic politician and lawyer, served as Governor of New Hampshire from 2013 to 2017. She is married to Thomas Hassan.

Report : A new United Nations report presented to the Hague Court: Israel is a racist state

The Special Rapporteur on the situation of human rights in the occupied Palestinian territories, Michael Lynk, presented a new report confirming that Israel is an apartheid state.

A new United Nations report presented to the Hague Court: Israel is a racist stateThe Supreme Committee of the Prisoner Movement in Palestine: Ben Gvir’s decisions regarding prisoners is playing with fire and we will not raise the white flag
The report is scheduled to be submitted to the United Nations Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, before it is presented at the hearing at the International Court of Justice in The Hague, according to the  Israeli newspaper Yedioth Ahronoth.

Lenk presented his conclusions about the situation in the West Bank, stating that the Israeli occupation is illegal, and recommending that the Hague Court "order" the Israeli army to withdraw immediately and unconditionally, as well as the "colonial settlers", repeal all discriminatory laws, and dismantle the civil administration.

Link noted in the report that Israel "violates international law, annexes occupied territories, violates civil rights and practices apartheid."

Link, a Canadian law professor who is leaving office after seven years, describes the report as "one of the most comprehensive reports on occupation, decolonization and self-determination ever published by the United Nations."

Cuba's representative Pedro Pedroso, a member of the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, said: "It is an ethnic cleansing process. Here we act as if it is normal... The United Nations does not talk about what is happening in the Palestinian territories, and the Security Council does not talk about what is happening."

Pedroso criticized New York Mayor Eric Adams' recent visit to Israel, saying, "He talks on social media all the time, but there is not a word about denying the rights of the Palestinian people. There seems to be no price for that."

The new report joins a series of recent United Nations reports that have criticized Israel. Last October, the Commission of Inquiry of the United Nations Human Rights Council published a report in which its members wrote that, in the final analysis, “there are reasonable grounds for reaching conclusions regarding the illegality of the Israeli occupation of the territories.” "Palestinian law under international law. Because it is permanent and because of the actual annexation policy pursued by the Israeli government." In addition, the committee noted that Israel's actions could be considered a war crime under international law.

In March 2022, a United Nations Special Committee on Human Rights in the Palestinian Territories submitted a similar report, which concluded that the situation in Israel and the occupied territories "amounts to apartheid."
