If conservatives have difficulty getting a fair shake from the mainstream media, Israel has a similar problem with the United Nations.
While eager to point out any perceived offense by the Israelis, the UN has no problem finding excuses for acts of terror committed by their Arab neighbors.
And as for how Israel viewed Barack Obama, well, that’s pretty obvious. They hated his guts and rightfully so.
One example of the uselessness of the U.N. is its Human Rights Council.
Promoting human rights sounds like a good idea, but then one looks at the roster of nations on that council and wonders what is going on. It contains, or has contained, nations such as Cuba, China, Saudi Arabia and Venezuela.
They HARDLY set standards to which nations should aspire.
And President Donald Trump has threatened the UN with major cuts; he’s NOT a fan of that organization and now, he has landed another huge blow: He has chosen to boycott the council.
Via Fox News:
“The Trump administration said Monday that it is boycotting a session of the United Nations Human Rights Council, amid growing concerns by the administration over the U.N.’s anti-Israel stance.“
An “anti-Israel stance,” as just noted, is nothing new.
It’s not the position of the United States that Israel can do no wrong, it’s just the apparent attitude by the U.N. and its constituent bodies that Israel can do nothing right. At least it does nothing that appeases the wrath of much of the U.N. leadership.
Our secretary of state outlined the problems the U.S. has with this body in a statement:
“‘While it may be the only such organization devoted to human rights, the Human Rights Council requires considerable reform in order for us to continue to participate,’ Tillerson said, in the letter obtained by Foreign Policy.”

Demonstrating the internal consistency within the Trump administration on the matter, U.N. Ambassador Nikki Haley stated,
“The U.N. has been Israel-bashing for decades and what we are trying to do is make sure they understand that there’s a new administration in town and we’re not going to put up with it.“
There’s another possible solution to the problem, and that would be to tell the U.N. that they can move their headquarters to another country such as Saudi Arabia, that we now have a new tenant for their building, and by the way, we just don’t have any money in our budget to help finance them anymore.
At the same time, Trump can continue to wage war against one of America’s TRUE enemies. See, we have a leader now that’s interesting in protect America, remember?
