Judenhass at The UNHRC?

What struck me as 'revealing' was that the key NGO who had recommended me to persist in my request to commemorate Henri Dunant's centenary was surprised when he saw the last paragraph in my statement that I had given in for the secretariat and the president to read:

"At the same period when he initiated the Red Cross, he spoke out against what was then called: "Jew-hatred" (Judenhass in German) in all its perverted forms, soon after this obsession become known as Antisemitism [1880] - today as Judeophobia. Dunant was also an active member of the Alliance Israélite Universelle in Paris after its foundation in 1860."

My NGO colleague felt that this conclusion would be considered as a 'political' statement and would almost certainly result in very negative reactions and a 'refusal'.
