Like the United Nations itself, the U.N. Human Rights Council has long had it out for the Jewish state. And now, Israel's greatest ally is acting. The Times of Israel's Raphael Ahren reports that the U.S. has announced its withdrawal from the group that is, per Ambassador Nikki Haley, "a cesspool of political bias":
The United States is withdrawing from the UN Human Rights Council, US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said Tuesday, branding the global body a “cesspool of political bias.”
“We take this step because our commitment does not allow us to remain a part of a hypocritical and self-serving organization that makes a mockery of human rights,” she said at a press conference announcing the move.
The council, she added, has a “chronic bias against Israel.”
Haley said that if the council reforms, the United States “would be happy to rejoin.”
