Former New York judge appointed to UN Gaza probe

The United Nations headquarters in New York on November 22, 2013Former New York judge Mary McGowan Davis was appointed Monday to a UN commission probing Israel’s Gaza offensive and the actions of Islamist militant group Hamas, the world body’s Human Rights Council said. The move comes after Lebanese-born British lawyer Amal Alamuddin — Hollywood star George Clooney’s fiancee — turned down her nomination citing existing professional commitments. McGowan Davis is likely to prove a controversial choice for Israel, having served on a previous team that investigated a 2008-2009 offensive and whose findings were rejected by the Jewish state. The UN Human Rights Council ordered the Gaza investigation last month, in the face of fierce opposition from Israel and the United States.
