    @ Equality --- agreed. Hamas is a terrorist group ( like El Quida or ISIS ) and does not represent true Palestinian people's interests ...........................Palestinians are as much victims of this organization that has cell groups among civilians. ......................... .Hamas charter charter calls for establishing an Islamic Palestinian state in place of Israel . . . . . . and wants Israel eliminate.

    “I think it much more likely that the apparently low blood cell counts in the Fukushima monkeys are caused by something other than radiation.”

    Geraldine Thomas, a professor of molecular pathology at Imperial College London, added the radiation doses would have been less than a person would receive on a flight from London to Tokyo.

    The blood cell count may be caused by other factors such as a new diet or other environmental changes brought on by the tsunami, she said.

    OH puhleeeze ! . . . . . The obfuscation continues ! . . . . .And these people are scientists ????????????.. ALL ENVIRONMENTAL factors In the Fukushima area were contaminated by radiation . . . .So EVERYTHING those monkeys were exposed to for over 3 years - air,water, food sources - were /are contaminated.

    Just another excuse for a money grab !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!......................Other things ,such as , Gender equity laws and labor laws entrenching Workers Rights have also bee "introduced" in European countries and I don't hear or see ANY ONE ( aside from P.M. Abe)in leadership tripping over themselves using Europe as an example to follow in these cases.. . .

    Good for Japan not capitulating to a corrupt farce of an organization like the U.

    INDEED - absolutely right on !!!!!!................"Japan’s foreign ministry said the U.N. committee was expected to adhere to the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights which Tokyo ratified in 1979" .................................... A few years back the UN also re-drew the map of the Middle East without Israel. . . . .The UN has become a gong show for special interest groups . . I read a commentary suggesting that the Secretary General, Moon, being Korean ,had a hand in influencing this hollow resolution . .

    @jerseyboy FYI -------------- **the United Nation represents ALL countries- - - It is not spokesperson for the national interest of specific countries !!!!!!! . . . The UN remained curiously silent re some Middle East rhetoric that is malignantly inciteful against certain nations and people groups i n the world . . . . . . The UN remained oblivious to the Rwandan ethnic cleanings . . .Just read Romeo Dallaire's "SHAKE HANDS WITH THE DEVIL" . . . so PLEASE , if the UN proposes to stand for Human Rghts - lets even the playing field - - - - . . BESIDES - BY ALL INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS- from the last part of the 20th Century Japan has been a leading proponet for world peace . **

    China has a clear strategy to establish a hegemonic control in the Pacific region . . It is Chinese militaristic aspirations, and imperialism that needs to be addressed and checked . . .

    . Chinese President Xi Jinping frequently refers to he great resurgence of the Chinese nation. . . (to) build up modernized forces . . being capable of fighting, and fighting victoriously...........

    AGREED- -------- But that resolution should not ONLY apply to Japan - - I can think of some neighboring countries to whom it also NEEDS to be addressed .
