After the sham of the last meeting, the United States is now considering withdrawing from the
anti-Israel Human Rights Council.
Highlighting what it deemed a ‘biased’ stance on Israel, UN ambassador Nikki Haley said the US was ‘looking carefully’ at its role on the Human Rights Council (UNHRC).
‘The United States is looking carefully at this Council and our participation in it,’ Haley told the Geneva forum in her first address. ‘We see some areas for significant strengthening.’
She said it was ‘hard to accept’ five resolutions had been passed against Israel, a US ally, while none were considered against Venezuela, which is in the grips of bloody protests over the rule of its president Nicolas Maduro.
She called on the Council to address serious human rights violations in Venezuela and for President Maduro’s government to give up its seat in the 47-member UN body unless it gets its ‘house in order’.
It came as the UN’s top human rights official Zeid Ra’ad al-Hussein called on Israel to pull out of Palestinian territories captured in 1967.
This is par for the course at the UNHRC.
(Aside: Is it just me, or should you just simply not trust anything with the initials ‘HRC’… Amirite?)
The UNHRC continually attacks Israel for existing, siding with terrorists, and completely ignoring human rights abuses by socialists.
She called on the Council to adopt ‘the strongest possible resolutions on the critical human rights situations in Syria, the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Eritrea, Belarus and Ukraine’.
Haley went on to say it should ‘follow up’ to prevent further human rights violations and abuses in those countries.
Haley described the UNHCR as ‘so corrupt’ weeks after becoming Trump’s ambassador to the United Nations.

This thing is a joke. As demonstrated by Saudi Arabia — a country with tons of human rights abuses and funders of terror — was re-elected to the council last year. Saudi Arabia, with their atrocious record of women’s rights, was also elected to the United Nations Women’s Rights Commission. This just shows you that the United Nations is a joke.
Don’t even hold these sham meetings on American soil. Especially not in Manhattan. Turn the damned thing into Condos and make them meet in Bhubaneswar, or Caracas, or Mogadishu, or some other God-forsaken hellhole with no international airport — like Ottawa, Candanistan.
President Trump had denounced the UN as a ‘club for people to have a good time’, so take away the good time and the ones serious about these issues will stay to make a difference. Otherwise, it’s just a lot of noise that’s costing us a whole lot of money. And some pretty prime real estate.
You know what I think.
What do YOU think?
Do we need to withdraw from the UNHRC because of their anti-Semitism?
President Trump, never one for beating around the bush reportedly berated Abbas in their second meeting for having lied to him.
According to a report by Israel’s Channel Two an angry Trump yelled at Abbas during their talks last Tuesday because of the Palestinian Authority’s continued incitement against Jews and against Israel.
“You tricked me in DC!” the President was reported to have hollered at the stunned Palestinian, “You talked there about your commitment to peace, but the Israelis showed me your involvement in incitement.”
Abbas then reassured the President that the Palestinian people wanted peace and that Palestinian parents were raising their children to be peaceful. As we know, this is a lie. We have seen the propaganda that the Palestinian schools teach their children, we have heard the songs that their children sing about stabbing Jews, and we have seen the TV shows where colorful puppets speak of the wonder of murdering Jews. But Abbas swore up and down that the Palestinian people just wanted peace…
So then why are his chief lieutenants writing op-eds telling their people to pick up guns and kill Jews? Just last week a member of the PLO’s leadership published a piece urging his fellow Palestinians to find a way, any way, to violently revolt against Israel.
Issa Karake, the PLO’s Commission of Prisoners’ Affairs director, accused Israel of trying to kill Palestinian prisoners who ended a 40-day hunger strike the day after his article was written.
“They (i.e., the prisoners) are being murdered [by Israel] in silence, through an official and planned method,” Karake wrote Wednesday on Prisoners’ Affairs commission’s website. “They are melting, bleeding, and dissipating. If one prisoner will fall, the entire world will fall. The world will die if a Palestinian prisoner will die . . . Break the pens, look for a gun and bullets. Do not look at your watches, the time is up . . . “
Two additional calls to arms were added when the Palestinian news site Al-Quds published the article a day later: “enough, let every one of us look for a gun and bullets.”
Maybe this is what Abbas meant when he said they were teaching their kids about peace? Maybe he was saying that once the Palestinians kill all the Jews, there will be peace?
Wake up America. The Palestinians aren’t an “oppressed” minority, they are a nation of terrorists hell-bent on murdering every Jewish person living in the Middle East. Israel could give them the West Bank and the Gaza strip tomorrow, they could pull all of their soldiers away from Palestinian territory, they could open the borders to allow Palestinian held territory to trade with whomever they want, and the Palestinians would simply use that as an opportunity to kill as many Jews as possible. How do we know? Because that is exactly what has happened every time Israel has given any concession, or signed any “ceasefire.” The Palestinians never actually cease firing, and they won’t, until the Jews are dead.
Israel is the good guy and we need to remember that.

The attack took place on a tram close to the Old City, where tourists from around the world have come to commemorate Easter and Passover. The woman died shortly after she was brought to a medical facility, despite efforts to save her. The 57-year old Palestinian attacker was apprehended by police.
Local media quoted witnesses as saying the man stabbed the woman multiple times. Reports said a pregnant woman was injured when the light rail came to a sudden stop. The attacker was apprehended by officers at the scene, police said.
Reports indicate two others were injured as well.
According to ABC News, Palestinians have killed 42 Israelis and two visiting Americans since September 2015. The Palestinian Authority regularly incites violence and acts of terror against Christians and Jews in Israel.
Governments around the world are taking steps to prevent attacks by radical Islamic terrorists over the Easter holiday. Authorities in Kosovo claim they have already intercepted plans for such an attack.

One possible course of action is to reduce United States’ funding of the UN while the other would make funding voluntary with a mandate that any contributions must be agreed by the House every two years. Congressman for North Carolina Mark Meadows, who chairs the Freedom Caucus, said: “One is an incremental step; the other is really a herculean leap.”
The move follows the UN Security Council unanimously backing a motion calling for the end of Israel building settlements on disputed land in the West Bank and East Jerusalem. In the past the US has vetoed resolutions it deemed were critical of the Jewish state but the outgoing administration under President Barack Obama made the rare decision not to vote. The resolution was passed by 14 votes to nothing last month.
The diplomatic move was seen as hugely controversial and led to widespread condemnation from both Democrats and Republicans. Mr Meadows stated the decision would help fuel support for the US to end its commitments to the UN. He said: “Israel is a bipartisan issue so I think that [if the proposal] is measured and appropriate we could pick up a lot of Democrats to support it as well.”
Should the group get their way in Congress this would have a serious impact on the UN as the US contributes almost a quarter – 22 percent – of the UN’s entire funding. The US contributed £480million ($594m) to the UN’s regular budget plus an additional £1.9billion ($2.3bn) to the peacekeeping budget.
The move by the Congress group has also received support from senior Republicans in the Senate. The controversial Ted Cruz, a Texas senator who ran against Mr Trump for the Republican presidential nomination, said he believed efforts to introduce new laws to this effect would take place “very soon”.
