(JTA)
Israel will join for the first
time a regional group within the United
Nations Human Rights Council as part
of a deal to improve the U.N. body's
relations with the Jewish state.
The council's Western European and
Others Group (WEOG) member states

Israel to participate with all other U.N.
member states in receiving regular
briefings and would enable it to have

tigators, said Hillel Neuer, director of
U.N. Watch, an NGO that monitors the
United Nations.
"More than anything, admission for
Israel would be a sign of equal treat-

Australia, Canada, Germany and France
sent a letter to the U.N.'s institutions in
Geneva and to the ambassador of Spain,
who heads the WEOG, telling them to
finally admit Israel into their circle.
On Oct. 29, Israel participated in the
council's so-called Universal Periodic
Review, during which it was widely crit-
icized for alleged human rights abuses.
