Actually, not. But I thought it made a more interesting headline.
The real story, to absolutely no one’s surprise:
The action in Geneva by the 47-nation council was a sharp setback for Israel, which had labored to discredit the month-old U.N. report. The council’s vote could force Israel to defend itself for months or perhaps years — in diplomatic forums, if not criminal tribunals — as U.N. bodies grapple with highly charged fallout from last winter’s conflict in the Hamas-ruled Gaza Strip.
While the council embraced a report that condemned both sides, the resolution itself criticized only Israel and was adopted by a wide margin.
