After the US was reelected by the United Nations General Assembly to a new term on the Human Rights Council, Secretary of State John Kerry insisted the Council focus on human rights issues around the world and cease attacking the State of Israel.
The UN Human Rights Council is a farce, a United Nations body that includes human rights abusers as members and which ignores true atrocities and instead focuses on the sole democracy in the Middle East - Israel.
"The Human Rights Council is only obsessed with the fate of the Palestinians, and prefers to close its eyes to other critical human rights violations. It consistently disregards the human rights of Israelis..." said Israel's ambassador to the UN in Geneva.
US officials have announced they will seek membership in the UN Human Rights Council, an anti-Israel body whose members include human rights violators who maintain an unfair obsession with Israel and consistently pass biased resolutions against the Jewish state.
Israel’s ambassador criticized the election of Venezuela, a dictatorship and ally of Iran, to the UN Human Rights Council. The UNHRC unfairly condemns Israel in nearly 40% of its country-specific resolutions.
