The United Nations Human Rights Council passed five anti-Israel resolutions at the end of its 37th session in Geneva, under the “Agenda Item 7,” a UNHRC mandate that a discussion of Israeli human rights abuses against Palestinians must be part of every council session.
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley expressed America’s outrage at the UNHRC’s treatment of Israel and warned that the U.S. would reconsider its membership in the body.
“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,” said Haley.
“The United States continues to evaluate our membership in the Human Rights Council. Our patience is not unlimited,” she added. “Today’s actions make clear that the organization lacks the credibility needed to be a true advocate for human rights.”
