. . . but not good for the gander

Israel continues to refuse the UN investigators any access to the Jenin camp largely because it alleges the anticipated UN desire to interrogate Israeli soldiers involved in the hostilities would be a violation of Israel's rights. Meanwhile Israeli has rounded-up (200 today alone, in Hebron) as many Palestinians as it chooses, now numbering in the thousands, and has detained them in concentrated camps, for the same purpose, interrogation.

In all, [Col. Miri Eisen, an Israeli intelligence officer and army spokeswoman] said [on April 22] Israeli forces had detained 4,500 Palestinians. Of those, just under 1,500 were arrested, of whom "over 800 have direct involvement in terrorist attacks," she said.
This of course is not seen as a violation of anyone's rights, not even by the UN apparently, and certainly not by the United States.
