Pence: United Nations Human Rights Council “doesn’t deserve its name”

Good. It’s about time we said so.

There is however no mention in the article (we can’t say whether Pence said anything) of that paragon of human rights, Saudi Arabia which is on the Human Rights Council.

(From The Daily Caller)

Pence noted that the membership of the Human Rights Council “attracts and welcomes many of the worst human rights violators in the world.” This includes Cuba, “an oppressive regime,” and Venezuela, “a dictatorship that undermines democracy.”

Pence then called on the UN to “reform the membership and practices” of the Human Rights Council, particularly due to its biased critiques against Israel.

“The Human Rights Council has become a forum for antisemitism and invective against Israel,” Pence explained. “The Human Rights Council has passed more than 70 resolutions condemning Israel, while largely ignoring the world’s worst human rights abusers.”
