Former New York judge Mary McGowan Davis was appointed Monday to a U.N. commission probing Israel's Gaza offensive and the actions of Hamas, the world body's Human Rights Council said.McGowan Davis is likely to prove a controversial choice for Israel, having served on a previous team that investigated a 2008-09 offensive and whose findings were rejected by Israel.The probe team was set up under a resolution lodged by Palestine, which has observer status at the council, but U.N. officials say its goal is to address all violations of international human rights and humanitarian law in Gaza, regardless of which side is involved.
