US Should Pull Out Of UN Human Rights Council
U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley told an Israeli audience that unless the UN Human Rights Council stops its targeting on Israel, the US will pull out of the council.
This is due to what we have seen so prevalent in the UN, a total obsession with Israel while ignoring real human rights violations all around the world. More specifically with each session of the UN Human rights, they have to open due to “Item 7”, this is to bring up only Israel as permanently on the topic at the start of each session. They don’t have the killings done by ISIS, not the gas used by Syria, the terrible human rights abuse by Saudi Arabia and other Arab states that kill women with little or no right to a fair trial, slaughtering of people of a different faith by ISIS, the attacks and calls for the murder of every Jew by Hamas and Hezbollah, the continued pay out of blood money with UN funds by Fatah if an Arab kills a Jew, either to them or their family, instead they want to only focus on Israel.
I think the US needs to go a step further, why are we giving any of our funds to the UN if they are supporting this type of thing, today the US funds 22% of all UN operations, the next nearest contributor funds less then 6%, one has to ask, why are we funding a organization that moves time after time in a way that is contrary to American values and seeks to undermine the sovereignty of our ally? What is more, by so doing the UN is in violation of their own charter that stated they would honor the League of Nations Mandate of Palestine, the first thing they did was then to rip up that agreement and try to give the majority of the land to the Arabs, naturally that was rejected by them, they demanded all, they got nothing.
As a American I find it a travesty that a penny of our taxes are going to the UN, if we are going to pay anything, we should match the amount paid on average by all the other nations, if the UN can’t operate on that budget then they can either slim way down or go the way of the League of Nations, either would be acceptable.
It is time to call this organization for what it is, antisemitic at its core, a waste of time, an organization intent on pushing globalism at the expense of American ideal’s, then in typical moves they demand that we finance them while they do it. I propose that until UNESCO and the UN Human Rights council’s are either shut down or reorganized to make it fairer, we should cut off 100% of all funding.
