Jewish -supremacist Washington sides with Zionism over its allies, tolerates no criticism of Israel at UN, no matter how reasonable or moderate

US Israel's sole HR violations supporter

(Press TV) --

The U.S. was the only country to vote against all six United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) resolutions on Israel, which were approved in Geneva this Thursday and Friday.

"We are deeply troubled to once again be presented with a slate of resolutions replete with controversial elements and one-sided references that fail to address the real challenges of the region," U.S. Ambassador Eileen Chamberlain Donahoe told the council.


Israel needs to stop settlement activity in the West Bank and improve movement and access for the Palestinians, Donahoe said; but she added that progress in the Israeli-Palestinian conflict would not be achieved through one-sided resolutions, such as the ones presented to the council.

The six resolutions the UNHRC approved condemned Israeli settlement activity and human rights violations in the "occupied" Palestinians territories and Golan Heights, and called for the right of Palestinian self-determination.

They also dealt with a follow-up report on last May's Gaza flotilla and Israel's military incursions in Gaza during Operation Cast Lead in late December 2008 and January 2009.

In contrast, the two resolutions on Israeli activity in the West Bank and east al-Quds (Jerusalem) had the approval of 45 members, with only the U.S. voting against them.

The Palestinian representative to the UN in Geneva, Ibrahim Khraishi, said that Israeli policy for decades has been reduced to the phrase, "Shut up, there is a war going on." JPost
