Usually the UN’s activities can be better described as inaction rather than in action. But not when it comes to Israel.
From Daniel J. Roth’s article in the Jerusalem Post:
United States Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley slammed members of the Human Rights Council as “foolish” on Friday after it passed five resolutions condemning Israel.
In a statement released following the conclusion of the council’s 37th session, the US mission pointed out that the inter-governmental body adopted only one resolution each against North Korea, Iran, and Syria.
“When the Human Rights Council treats Israel worse than North Korea, Iran, and Syria, it is the Council itself that is foolish and unworthy of its name,” Haley said in the statement.
“It is time for the countries who know better to demand changes. Many countries agree that the Council’s agenda is grossly biased against Israel, but too few are willing to fight it.
“When that happens, as it did today,” Haley continued, “the Council fails to fulfill its duty to uphold human rights around the world.”
Haley also warned that the US is still weighing whether it plans to remain on the council, adding that Friday’s resolutions was another blow to the institution’s “credibility.”
Well, you can’t say the UN isn’t consistent. Consistently ridiculous, disgraceful and anti-Semitic, that is.
Gee, with members so invested in human rights – like, for example, China, Cuba, Pakistan and Saudi Arabia – I wonder how that could be.
Earlier this year, President Trump allegedly referred to some countries as shitholes. I don’t know if he actually said that, but I do know that if he had gone more “bigly” and used the term for a certain organization comprised of many countries, he would have been right on target. Guess which one?
Let me end with a thank-you to Ms. Haley, and to the President who made her our UN Ambassador. I doubt a better choice could have been made.
