Clooney's fiancee to serve on Gaza rights probe


GENEVA (AP) - British-Lebanese lawyer Amal Alamuddin, who is engaged to marry George Clooney, has been chosen for the U.N.'s three-member commission of inquiry looking into possible violations of the rules of war in Gaza.

Alamuddin is a London-based international law specialist and former legal adviser to the prosecutor of the Special Tribunal for Lebanon.

The U.N.'s top human rights body says she will serve alongside Doudou Diene of Senegal, a lawyer who has filled U.N. posts on racism and human rights in Ivory Coast, and Canada's William Schabas, an international law professor at Middlesex University in London, who will chair the commission.

The appointments were announced Monday by Gabon Ambassador Baudelaire Ndong Ella, who is president of the 47-nation U.N. Human Rights Council.

I can tell you the outcome now which will be that ALL the war crimes will be against Israel. There will be NONE against Hamas.

All these UN people are far leftists and strong supporters of terrorism. Therefore I don't know why the United Nothing is wasting the money.
