UN rights chief Navi Pillay slams 'racist' Australia over tough refugee policiesAccording to UN Human Rights Commissioner Navi Pillay, long-standing policies of locking up asylum seekers had 'cast a shadow over Australia's human rights record', and appeared to be completely arbitrary.
'I come from South Africa and lived under this, and am every way attuned to seeing racial discrimination,' she said
Really? Then where is her outrage about the treatment of Palestinian Arab refugees in Arab countries?
For over 60 years, various Arab countries kept those refugees in camps and refused to give them asylum. At the same time Israel absorbed an even greater number of Jewish refugees from Arab countries and integrated them into Israeli society.
It is a well known fact why Arab countries refuse to integrate their fellow Palestinian Arab Muslims into their societies. They want to use these refugees as cannon fodder to keep their fight against Israel going.
Yet the self righteous Navi Pillay seems to have nothing to say about the treatment of refugees in Arab countries she singles out only Australia and Israel for criticism. Maybe she and the UN are the ones with racist tendencies?
