The UN’s Human Rights Charade

Supporters of Israel are well aware that the United Nations agencies devoted to the defense of human rights are a farce. The world body devotes a disproportionate amount of its time, energy, and influence on efforts meant to undermine the Middle East’s only functional democracy in support of the century-old Arab and Muslim war against Zionism. Its Human Rights Council is a club for tyrants, autocrats, and theocratic murderers but every conceivable excuse is found to pillory Israel while genuine human rights atrocities happening elsewhere in the region and the globe (perpetrated by some of the HRC’s members) scarcely merit a mention, let alone the sort of concerted campaign that is devoted to the cause of delegitimizing Israel.
