The United States has once again stood up for its closest ally, Israel. The Jerusalem Post reports that the U.S. has condemned a United Nations resolution to blacklists Israeli businesses:

The resolution, which calls for the database of enterprises to be updated annually, was passed under the Human Rights Council's agenda item seven, which covers the "human rights situation in Palestine and other occupied Arab territories."

US State Department spokesman John Kirby criticized the motion at his daily briefing.

"We continue to unequivocally oppose the very existence of that agenda item and therefore any resolutions ... that come from it," he said, accusing the body of "bias against Israel."
