Deadly Double Standards

Tom Carew of Dublin, Ireland replies to the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination (CERD) which calls upon Israel to let Palestinians return to “their” land. He writes:

I await the call for the “return” of 7.5 million Muslims who left India in 1947 [10 times the number of Arabs who left Israel in 1947-1949]. They would include the Pakistan President—born in Delhi.

I await with even greater interest the call to let 1 million Jews return to the Muslim world, or 7.5 million Hindus to return to Pakistan—including the Indian Prime Minister…

But if not all of these, why does the UN focus only on the Palestinians? Why does the UN single out Israel—to take a step that would terminate its existence?
