Louise Arbour, the Jew-hating UN Commissioner for Human Rights who routinely denounces Israel but has not one bad word for her good friends the Palestinians, was touring a Jewish village, Sderot, the victim of many Palestinian rockets, when one of those peaceful missiles from those peaceful Palestinians* struck right near where she was standing. It missed her.
Darn. Wouldn't that be irony - a Palestinian apologist killed by a Palestinian rocket fired into Israel?
Arbour escapes injury in Palestinian rocket attack
Palestinian militants fired rockets into the Israeli town of Sderot, critically wounding one man on Tuesday, as UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Louise Arbour was touring the community.
Arbour, a former Supreme Court of Canada justice, was not hurt when rockets landed a few hundred metres away from her entourage at a factory, but a worker at the facility was seriously injured.
After Arbour's group heard a loud explosion and saw plumes of smoke, Israeli rescue officials immediately rushed to the scene.
"I was on the outskirts of a factory immediately after it was hit," Arbour said.
"I understand somebody was seriously wounded and so I think first of all I want to express my deepest sympathy for the people, for the family of the person who was wounded and say how much I share their sense of hopelessness, and vulnerability and frustration, frankly, to have been so exposed."
The armed wing of the militant group Hamas claimed responsibility for the rocket attack, saying it was not aware that Arbour was visiting the town.
Not one word condemning the Palestinians, or the scumbag Islamic terrorists who fired the rocket.
But, as the story noted with some bitterness:
She angered Israeli officials by condemning Israeli military actions in the Gaza Strip and told Palestinians that the world has not abandoned them.
How wonderful it would have been for Louise Arbour, Palestinian terrorism apologist, to have been hit by this rocket. She certainly deserves it.
