U.S. Hypocritical Talk about "Champion of Human Rights" Dismissed
Pyongyang, January 19 (KCNA) -- The U.S. attitude towards Israel's barbaric military attacks at the Gaza Strip of Palestine and mass-killings of civilians there gives the lie to its talk about "champion of human rights", says Rodong Sinmun Monday in a signed commentary.

The U.S. is defending Israel's such hideous human rights abuses as the brutal killing of innocent peaceable civilians, while shutting eyes to them, the commentary notes, and goes on:

A chairman's statement critical of Israel's massacre of Palestinians was turned down because the U.S. exercised its veto to prevent it from being adopted at the meeting of the UN Security Council.

The above-said U.S. attitude clearly indicates that it only seeks escalated tension and sinister strategic interests, not peace in the Mid-east.

By doing so, the U.S. threw away the veil of the "champion of human rights" on its own.

It is an undeniable stark fact that with an eye to use Israel as its servant in executing its Mid-east strategy for aggression with ease, the U.S. delivered lethal weapons to it and is encouraging it to use them for carrying out military operations against Palestine, thus causing horrible casualties and disasters.

Both the U.S. and Israel are the same heinous human rights abusers and harassers of peace.

Not only murderers but those who defend and encourage them should be forced to stand trial at the international human rights court to face stern punishment. This is a unanimous demand of the international community.

Israel should immediately stop its military attacks on the Gaza Strip and massacre of civilians there and pull back its aggression troops from all the occupied Arab territories at an early date.

The U.S. should refrain from defending and encouraging Israel's frantic military actions against Palestine if it truly stands for Mid-east peace.
