Reuters writes about the U.N. General Assembly's approval of Jordan's U.N. ambassador, Prince Zeid Ra'ad Zeid al-Hussein, as its human rights chief.
U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon nominated Prince Zeid earlier this month to replace Navi Pillay, a South African jurist who in 2012 was given an abbreviated second term of only two years due to pressure the United States, which disliked her criticism of Israel, U.N. diplomats said at the time.
Reading a 2010 interview of the ambassador at Tablet, I wonder if Israel will fare any better in terms of being criticised.
Ladaatinfo reports on the visit of the Admor of Tzanz to the kotel prior to his grandson's wedding. After Mincha and recitation of Tehilim, Rabbi Rabinovich approached the Admor and made mention of the three kidnapped boys. The Admor said that he thinks about them the whole time and prayed for them at the tziyon of his father this morning. He concluded by hoping that in the merit of the prayers of the nation of Israel, that the boys will be freed quickly.
