UN Human Rights Council Declares Israel World's No. 1 Human Rights Violator

(Fox News) Anne Bayefsky - The latest session of the UN Human Rights Council, which wrapped up in Geneva on Friday, adopted five times more resolutions condemning Israel than any other country on earth. The council is now the principal UN engine of BDS - the campaign to boycott, divest and sanction Israel. It has sponsored the creation of a blacklist of companies directly or indirectly doing business with Israeli settlements. Since the U.S. returned to the council in 2009, it has made speeches about "unacceptable" Israel-bias and voted against the anti-Israel resolutions, and then pays for their implementation. Staying on the council means American taxpayers will pay for the production of a blacklist of American companies doing business with Israel. The writer is director of the Touro Institute on Human Rights and the Holocaust.
