Kerry Rebukes U.N. Rights Council As Being ‘Obsessed’ With Israel


john-kerryToday, Secretary of State John Kerry delivered a vigorous defense of Israel before the U.N. Human Rights Council, urging its members to end what the United States says is its unfair and biased focus on the Jewish State that could undermine its credibility, the AP reports.

In a speech denouncing rights abuses in places like Syria, North Korea and Ukraine, Kerry spent several minutes on what he called the council’s “deeply concerning record on Israel.”

“No one in this room can deny that there is an unbalanced focus on one democratic country,” he said, decrying the fact that no country other than Israel has a permanent agenda item on the council’s schedule. “It must be said the (council’s) obsession with Israel actually risks undermining the credibility of the entire organization.”

“We will oppose any effort by any group or participant in the U.N. system to arbitrarily and regularly delegitimize or isolate Israel,” he said. “When it comes to human rights no country on earth should be free from scrutiny but neither should any country be subject to unfair or unfounded bias.”
