US ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley is expected to announce the US’ decision to withdraw from the UN Human Rights Council this week, according to the Hill and others familiar with the administration.
The report states that the US will formally withdraw from the Council after repeated clashes centered around key security issues; particularly anti-Israel bias after multiple attacks against the Jewish State by Hamas and other terror organizations in Gaza.
“U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley has clashed with the council over its treatment of Israel and has repeatedly voted against U.N. measures that were critical of that country. Most recently, the U.S. and Australia were the only two members to vote against a proposal to investigate Israel’s alleged use of excessive force in Gaza,” writes the Hill.
“When the council passes more than 70 resolutions against Israel, a country with a strong human rights record, and just seven resolutions against Iran, a country with an abysmal human rights record, you know something is seriously wrong,” said Haley last year.
