US Jewish and Pro-Israel Groups Hail American Withdrawal From UN Human Rights Council

Top American Jewish and pro-Israel groups have hailed Tuesday’s announcement — made by Secretary of State Mike Pompeo and UN Ambassador Nikki Haley — that the US was withdrawing from the UN Human Rights Council.

An edited sampling of these responses can be read below:

The American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) said it “appreciates the Trump administration’s decision to withdraw from the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), and for the leadership of US Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley on this issue. Unfortunately, the council has profoundly betrayed its mission through its long and obsessive record of unfairly targeting the Middle East’s only genuine democracy, the state of Israel.”

“The UNHRC’s unrelenting, unbalanced and unfounded attacks on Israel have destroyed its credibility,” the AIPAC statement continued. “The council has passed more country-specific resolutions against Israel than the rest of the world’s nations combined. The United States has repeatedly called for reform of the UNHRC; unfortunately, the council has rebuffed any serious reform — severely impeding its ability to effectively act as an objective guardian of human rights.”
