Head of UN and Former PLO Consultant resigns after Israel accuses Him of Pro-Gaza Bias ...

AD CAMPAIGN protests appointment of leftist stooge for Iran 
William Schabas to head a UN Commission to investigate 
Israel’s military operations against Hamas
Gee ...Do you think?
The head of a UN inquiry into last summer’s Israeli military offensive in Gaza has said he will resign after Israeli allegations of bias due to consultancy work he did for the Palestine Liberation Organisation (PLO).

William Schabas, a Canadian academic, was appointed last August by the head of the UN Human Rights Council to lead a three-member group looking into alleged war crimes during the offensive.
In a letter to the commission, a copy of which was seen by Reuters, Schabas said he would step down immediately to prevent the issue from overshadowing the preparation of the report and its findings, which are due to be published in March.
Schabas’ departure highlights the sensitivity of the UN investigation just weeks after prosecutors at the international criminal court in The Hague said they had started a preliminary inquiry into alleged atrocities in the Palestinian territories.

Schabas played a major part in the gathering of information and preparation of the report and simply resigning make THAT REPORT acceptable? Ah, I don't think so.
