Sen. Ted Cruz unloaded on the United Nations Human Rights Council this week after the group published a scathing report blaming Israel for using “excessive force” against Hamas-backed terrorists during a nine-month period.
This U.N. report is on its face absurd and dishonest and we know because they have been doing it for a long time,” said Cruz during a teleconference with the Jewish Institute for the National Security of America.
“Hamas and Hezbollah use human shields as a deliberate tactic. They use innocent Palestinian civilians, to put them in harm’s way, because they intend to exploit those human shields for when they are injured or killed when Israel defends itself,” he added.
“It is a repeated and deliberate strategy of Hamas to use human shields,” said the Texas lawmaker. “The U.N. report ignores that reality.”

A NEW LOW: Women’s March Co-Founder Calls HUMAN SHIELDS ‘Brave’
The outspoken co-founder of the Women’s March organization found herself at the center of another controversy Tuesday; slamming the United States embassy celebration in Israel and referring to the terrorist tactic of using ‘human shields’ as ‘brave.’
Tamika Mallory made national headlines after she posted her stunning critique on social media this week, saying the United States “turns the blind eye” to “abuse everyday.”
One user took exception to Mallory’s fierce rhetoric, saying “It takes a special kind of evil to sacrifice your people for the cameras.”
The Women’s March co-founder fired-back, saying “Or bravery! Depends on how you look at it!”
Or bravery! Depends on how you look at it!

Mallory was thrust into the national spotlight earlier this year after her attendance at a Louis Farrakhan speech raised questions over her relationship with the religious leader; listening in silence for nearly 3 hours as Farrakhan railed against the “Satanic Jew.”
BAD COMPANY: Farrakhan Defends Ilhan Omar’s Anti-Semitic Rant, Rails Against ‘Wicked Jews’
Nation of Islam leader and notorious anti-Semite Louis Farrakhan publicly praised embattled Rep. Ilhan Omar Sunday; saying she “has nothing to apologize for” after promoting vicious stereotypes on social media.
“The wicked Jews want to use me to break up the women’s movement,” Farrakhan said during his annual Saviours’ Day event. “It ain’t about Farrakhan; it’s about women all over the world [who] have the power to change the world.”
Farrakhan then defended Omar’s twitter tirade; saying “Ms. Omar from Somalia – she started talking about ‘the Benjamins’ and they are trying to make her apologize. Sweetheart, don’t do that. Pardon me for calling you sweetheart, but you do have a sweet heart. You sure are using it to shake the government up, but you have nothing to apologize for,” Farrakhan said. “Israel and AIPAC pays off senators and congressmen to do their bidding, so you’re not lying, so if you’re not lying. Stop laying down. You were sent there by the people to shake up that corrupt House.”
