Nikki Haley Rips Into UN Human Rights Council Again
U.S. Permanent Representative to the United Nations Ambassador Nikki Haley, just one week after announcing she was evaluating whether or not the U.S. should remain in the Human Rights Council over its anti-Israel stance, was ripping into the organization once again on Tuesday.
Following a report entitled “Ensuring accountability and justice for all violations of international law in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem,” she blasted the U.N. Human Rights Commissioner for the new round of anti-Semitism. She said actions like these are what force her to reevaluate the U.S.’ future on the Human Rights Council, which she said was “founded on the principles of equality and fairness.”
Haley said that, rather than providing an impartial and informative update on human rights violations, the report “reeks of the anti-Israel bias” she has been calling out since her first day on the job. It recommends that the U.N. General Assembly—through the Human Rights Council—ask the International Court of Justice to issue another advisory opinion focused on Israel, which she said is “completely out of the purview of the high commissioner for human rights.”
“Among other one-sided conclusions in the report, terror attacks by Hamas and other violent groups are brushed over, instead choosing to fixate on matters like the human rights practices of companies in the region,” she added. “This report is just the latest example of the Human Rights Council singling out Israel rather than focusing on the world’s actual human rights abusers. Not only does it undermine the credibility of the Human Rights Council on human rights issues, but it once again highlights the unfair bias of the U.N. when it comes to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.”
