The Jew-hating United Nations’ obsession with Israel continues. As the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) elevates and legitimizes some of the most barbaric and murderous countries on the planet, it seeks to delegitimize Israel, the world’s only Jewish state, and the only democracy in the Middle East. Under President Trump, the United States left the UNHRC. Sadly, the Biden Administration gleefully returned to this corrupt and anti-Semitic circus.

Israel harshly criticized the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) after it passed a resolution on Thursday to launch a Commission of Inquiry against Israel for alleged war crimes it committed and called for an arms embargo against the Jewish state.
Twenty-four states, including Bahrain with which Israel recently signed a peace treaty, supported the motion, nine voted against it, and 14 countries abstained.
No European country supported the motion.
This is the first time that the UNHRC has voted to establish a permanent fact-finding mission on any UN member state.
Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated after the vote that the “shameful decision is yet another example of the UN Human Rights Council’s blatant anti-Israel obsession.”
“Once again, an immoral automatic majority at the Council whitewashes a genocidal terrorist organization that deliberately targets Israeli civilians while turning Gaza’s civilians into human shields. This while depicting as the ‘guilty party’ a democracy acting legitimately to protect its citizens from thousands of indiscriminate rocket attacks,” he stated.
“This travesty makes a mockery of international law and encourages terrorists worldwide,” he added.
The Foreign Ministry stated that Israel “rejects outright” the resolution by “a body with a built-in anti-Israel majority, guided by hypocrisy and absurdity.”
“Any resolution that fails to condemn the firing of over 4,300 rockets by a terror organization at Israeli civilians, or even to mention the terror organization Hamas, is nothing more than a moral failure and a stain on the international community and the UN,” Ministry Spokesperson Lior Haiat stated.
He noted that “Israeli security forces acted with the highest ethical standards, in accordance with international law, in defending our citizens from Hamas’ indiscriminate rocket fire” while Hamas committed “a double war crime – firing from civilian locations inside Gaza, at Israeli civilians. This resolution ignores that completely.”
