President Donald Trump and his administration plan to boycott the UNHRC (aka United Nation’s Human Rights Council) due to their hypocrisy and backwards policies both towards the United States and Israel.
Some countries that are members of the UNHRC have been cited for human rights abuses, but they are quick to shed blame on both Israel and the United states, making five anti-Israel resolutions on Monday.
There has been increased pressure by President Trump and his administration, both politically and financially, on the U.N. in an effort to create some reform on the international organization and root out their anti-Israel platforms regarding the ‘human rights situation in Palestine and other Arab countries.’ The Trump administration has stated that ‘every resolution targeting Israel will encourage its allies to do the same.’
From Young Conservatives:
What a change! As former President Barack Obama was on the way out the door, one of the last things he did was stick it to Israel by allowing a despicable anti-Israel resolution to pass in the U.N. without a veto. President Obama’s antipathy towards Israel was a change from decades of U.S. policy. Now President Donald Trump, through his surprisingly strong U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley, is righting the ship and telling the the U.N. they need to stop the attacks on Israel. The United Nations has not only been anti-Israel, it’s been anti-U.S. for years. This despite the fact that we give them significant funding. The Trump Administration is already looking at cutting the funding. So nice to see someone not “leading from behind” but actually requiring the U.N. not to step all over us and our allies before we give them money or sit at their table. It’s called strength and it works…
