VIDEO: UK Challenges UN’s Anti-Israel Bias, Threatens to Vote Against all Motions Involving the Jewish State

As long as Israel remains a standing agenda item at the United Nations and “Syria’s regime butchers and murders its people on a daily basis” the UK will vote down any attempt to debate the future of the Jewish State.

This warning was made on Friday at the 31st session of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHCR) by the UK mission in Geneva. It came as the UNHCR debated Israel’s conduct in the occupied Syrian and Palestinian territories.
In its history, the UNHCR has condemned Israel more often than any other of the 192 UN states. Comparative totals after Friday’s session in Geneva tell the story: Israel – 78 resolutions and decisions, Syria – 29, North Korea – 9, and Iran – 6.

While it made clear its “serious concerns about the growth in illegal demolitions and settlement activity” and said the UK stood “shoulder to shoulder with the international community” in support of a two-state solution, the UK mission added the council’s “unacceptable pattern of bias” as evidenced by the sheer number of motions condemning the Jewish state would only make the goal harder to achieve.
