I should have paid attention.  From Leila: "I don’t know if you know this, but on Monday the website that you linked to that decried Saudi Arabia’s appointment to the head of the UN Human Rights Council is a pro-Israel “rights organization” called UN Watch, and one of its main purposes is to monitor the UN for “anti-Israel bias.” UN Watch was active against the Goldstone report, they regularly criticize the UN for supporting — even “encouraging” — Hamas, and they have even criticized the ever-compliant Ken Roth of HRW for being too soft in his criticism of the Palestinians. Of course, UN Watch's condemnation is right on Saudi Arabia, but the organization has a deeper agenda."
