U.N Rep Khulood Badawi caught in a blatant lie about Israel: Refuses to apologize

Khulood Badawi is a UN representative and a partisan activist who published a picture of a child who was killed in an accident in 2006 as “another child killed by #Israel…another father carrying his child to a grave” during the latest escalation between Gaza and Israel.

She and other retweeters at the UN were informed of the mistake on the same day.

It took her 8 days to make a “correction” of sorts while stating that these were her personal views and not related to her work. This puts Badawi in violation of articles 100 & 101 of the UN charter (objectivity and non-partisanship of UN employees).

And, she still has not apologized for making a “mistake”.
