Secretary Clinton Blasts UN Human Rights Council’s Bias Against Israel

This afternoon, Secretary of State Hillary Clinton addressed the United Nations Human Rights Council (HRC) and communicated the Obama Administration’s position on recent events in the Middle East. Clinton also made a point to blast the HRC for its “structural bias against Israel.”

According to the transcript provided by the Department of State:

And I must add, the structural bias against Israel - including a standing agenda item for Israel, whereas all other countries are treated under a common item - is wrong. And it undermines the important work we are trying to do together. As member states, we can take this Council in a better, stronger direction.

This is the latest instance in a long track record of the Obama Administration standing up for Israel against the biased United Nations.
