Amal Alamuddin Will Serve on the UN's Gaza Human Rights Commission

Amal Alamuddin has been appointed to serve on a new three-member commission for the United Nations to look into Israel’s possible violations of the rules of war in Gaza.

The London-based international law specialist is engaged to George Clooney and will serve alongside Senegal’s Doudou Diene and Canada’s William Schaba.

Navi Pillay
, the UN high commissioner for human rights, says that Israel’s airstikes could amount to war crimes in Gaza.

“There are just a few examples where there seems to be a strong possibility that international humanitarian law has been violated, in a manner that could amount to war crimes,” Pillay said.

UPDATE: Amal has turned the down position – read her statement now

    @Natural Nia: Agreed. For years now the rumors have been that George Clooney wants a bigger, more political presence than just being worshipped in Hollywood. Get a respected lawyer/diplomat wife, etc. – sounds like he’s making way with his goal to be a senator, or governor, or whatever. Emphasis on whatever.

    Wow, I guess getting married to Clooney has its perks. Will this Council also look at how Hamas uses women and children as human shields, and intentionally fires missiles from in front of schools and hospitals?

    So she herself being a palastinian would she be fair on this new project?

    l8r Says:

    Amal is nothing more than a racist anti-Semitic pig. Of course she will find that Israel is guilty of something for defending itself against constant Hamas rocket attacks. The Hamas charter calls for the destruction of Israel via rocket attacks and secret tunnels built to infiltrate into Israel to kill and kidnap Israelis. As for Navi Pillay, do your research on her. She has condemned Israel from the day she took office and she will continue to condemn Israel because she’s another Israel hater. These two are filled with hatred for Israel. If anyone thinks that Amal will vote in favor of Israel I have a bridge I’d like to sell them. I hope she and Clooney have a marriage filled with misery and more misery.

    Just Saying... Says:

    What Israel did in Gaza is the definition of War Crimes and a Genocide. The irony in Israel committing a holocaust and using terms launch as “concentrate” and “exterminate” when referring to the Palestenians is incredibly disturbing and quite sickening, to say the least. If they get away with their massacre, then you know there is no hope left in humanity. Muslims are being slaughtered and butchered in front of the entire world yet everyone is smirking because they feel justified for murdering an entire race for the actions of a handful of people on 9/11 (which were orchestrated by the US government, by the way, but the citizens are too stupid and bigoted to realize or even care). Nobody speaks about the US killing innocent Iraqi civilians all in the false quest to seek “weapons of mass destruction” that were never found.
    9/11 brought and created many fanatics that day. Bringing your bigotry, racisim and own extremist views to the forefront. It’s true what they say, “You end up becoming what and whom you hate the most”.
