~Right to join UN Rights Council? by ronshapiro

Going against previous precedents, the Obama administration decided to join the UN Human Rights Council.

Why is this a problem?  Well…

  • More than 1/2 of Council is composed of countries who aren’t true democracies
  • Since its inception in 2006, 26 of the 32 resolutions that have been passed (81%) condemn Israel
  • The Council has gotten rid of experts who were investigating human rights issues in Darfur, Congo, Cuba, Belarus, and Liberia.

The Council might as well be renamed as the UN Condemn Israel Council.

“There is no question that the U.S. can play a decisive role in making U.N. institutions more effective, but the Human Rights Council has deep systemic flaws,” said ADL National Director Abraham Foxman.

And you believe Israel doesn’t deserve condemnation, why?

A country should not be blamed for protecting its citizens, rathered it should be praised.
