US to Leave ‘Foolish, Unworthy’ UN Human Rights Council Over Anti-Israel Bias

The United States’ demands regarding reforming the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) have failed to be met, and as such Washington is reportedly ready to pull out over what it calls anti-Israel bias and the inclusion of alleged rights abusers.

Diplomats told Reuters that it's merely a matter of time before the US exits the council, which will convene Monday for a three week convention that will last until July 6. One US source who spoke anonymously said that an announcement looks "imminent."

Another US official in Geneva, where the UNHRC will meet June 18, said, "we are still moving ahead with our engagement for the coming session."

US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley has cast shade on the council since taking the job, while both the US State Department and US President Donald Trump himself found issue with it in 2017.

On June 6, 2017, Haley went to Geneva to give the council a series of ultimatums. At the meeting, she said, "It's hard to accept that this council has never considered a resolution on Venezuela, and yet it adopted five biased resolutions in March against a single country: Israel. It is essential that this council address its chronic anti-Israel bias if it is to have any credibility."

Webmaster's Commentary: 

The US and UK have lost any credibility at the UN in general, and the Human Rights Council in particular, by preventing the vote on an immediate cease-fire in Yemen.

UN Rehects Plan for an Immediate Cease-fire in Yemen.

Madam Ambassador, you may as well pack it up, and resign; the UN has just proven itself impotent to stop the bloodshed here, and it is primarily because of grandstanding by the US and UK here, that this has happened.

It appears, in this move, that both you and the UK's Ambassador to the UN, Karen Pierce, have both had your consciences surgically removed, so that arms sales to Saudi Arabia by both countries can continue at warp speed, and the Saudi genocide against the Yemenis can continue, unabated.

Oh, and by "human rights abusers", are you talking about the US's new BFF, Saudi Arabia, which is conducting this genocide against the people of Yemen, enabled through US military participation in their war crimes?!?

Ambassador Haley, let's be clear about for whom you are working at the UN; you are not working for the needs and concerns of We the People; you are working for the needs and concerns of the US military/industrial complex, the Saudi government, and its new-found ally, Israel.

There is blood on your, and on the President's hands, because of this; and those with any shred of moral decency still left in them, will not soon forget this.
