Nikki Haley has always been about the truth. Whether this is in connection with defending Israel against false accusations at the UN or standing up against despotic regimes using the UN to push their agendas. Now she is taking on the Un Human Rights Council.
Now Haley and UN Watch has a new mission. They are working hard to remove Venezuela led by the corrupt Maduro regime from the UN Human Rights Council. This council has lost most of its weight over the years as it has been led and joined by countries with the least respect for Human Rights.
Countries like China, Saudi Arabia, and Cuba have been leaders on the Human Rights Council.
Many countries have expressed dismay in the anti-Israel nature of the council.
By 2018, Israel has been condemned in 78 resolutions by the Human Rights Council, which was created in 2006. The Council has passed more resolutions condemning Israel than the rest of the world combined. By April 2007, the Council had passed eleven resolutions condemning Israel, the only country which it had specifically condemned. Toward Sudan, a country with human rights abuses as documented by the Council’s working groups, it has expressed “deep concern”.
On June 30, 2006 the Council voted to make a review of alleged human rights abuses by Israel a permanent feature of every council session thus singling out Israel as the Council’s primary focus. To this effect, the Council’s only special appointment for ongoing reports is on the Israeli–Palestinian conflict and has no year of expiry.
The resolution, which was sponsored by Organization of the Islamic Conference, passed by a vote of 29 to 12 with five abstentions. The council was urged by Human Rights Watch to look at international human rights and humanitarian law violations committed by Palestinian armed groups as well.
