The total of all other UNHRC condemnatory resolutions for the rest of the world amounts to 55, with most of the worst violators given a free pass, if not a seat on the council itself.

Ahead of Debate on Gaza Report, UN Watch Releases Evidence of Systematic Bias at UN's Top Rights Body

GENEVA, June 25, 2015 - In the nine years of its existence, the UN Human Rights Council has condemned Israel more times than the rest of the world combined, revealed UN Watch today, ahead of a new report to be released by the Geneva-based NGO that documents endemic selectivity and politicization at the world body.

The outcome resolution for the latest Gaza report, to be introduced at the UNHRC this week by the Palestinians together with the Arab and Islamic states, will condemn Israel exclusively, and will mark the 62nd resolution targeting Israel since the new and improved Council was created in 2006 -- while the total of all other UNHRC condemnatory resolutions for the rest of the world amounts to 55, with most of the worst violators given a free pass, if not a seat on the council itself.

Sadly, with members like China, Russia, Cuba, Saudi Arabia, Pakistan, Venezuela and Qatar, the UNHRC today may possibly rank as a more corrupt international organization than FIFA.

UN Watch released the following statistics today, and urged Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to again rebuke the Human Rights Council for treating one particular group of human beings, Israelis, out of all proportion:

I. Total UNHRC Condemnations, 2006-2015

Israel: 61
Syria: 15
Myanmar: 12
North Korea: 8
Iran: 5
Belarus: 4
Eritrea: 3
Sri Lanka: 3
Sudan: 2
Libya: 2
Honduras: 1
Afghanistan: 0
Algeria: 0
China: 0
Cuba: 0
Equatorial Guinea: 0
France: 0
Iraq: 0
Lebanon: 0
Russia: 0
Pakistan: 0
Somalia 0
Turkmenistan: 0
UK: 0
USA: 0
Uzbekistan: 0
Venezeula: 0
Vietnam: 0
Yemen: 0
Zimbabwe: 0

Total on Israel: 61
Rest of World Combined: 55

Methodology: includes all resolutions from 2006 to 2015 that singled out specific countries for condemnation under agenda items 4 and 7. Excludes resolutions that also praise the country concerned, or those adopted as matters of "technical cooperation."

There is a special agenda item targeting Israel at every regular session of the UNHRC. No other country in the world has its own agenda item -- not Sudan, not Syria, not North Korea. It is under this agenda item No. 7 on Monday, which Western democracies in the last year have mostly boycotted due to its selectivity, that the Schabas-Davis report on Gaza will be formally debated.

III. Special Rapporteurs

The permanent Special Rapporteur on Israel’s alleged violations is the only one at the UNHRC whose mandate examines only one side (Israel’s actions, but not Hamas, Islamic Jihad, or Fatah); who in advance presumes the country concerned to be guilty; and which has no expiration.

By contrast, even the HRC mandate on Sudan examines all sides, government and rebels; does not presume violations in advance; and must be renewed each year. The mandate against Israel was the only one inherited in 2006 from the old Commission on Human Rights that was not subjected to the required review, rationalization and improvement (RRI) process.

From 2008 to 2014, this mandate was held by 9/11 conspiracy theorist Richard Falk. He continues to accuse UN Watch of having ruined his life for getting him condemned by Ban Ki-moon and other world figures. On the day Falk was obliged to retire, the Council appointed his wife and colleague Hilal Elver Falk to a separate post at the HRC.

7 on Israel. Each was initiated by Arab and Islamic states, and was devoid of any condemnation of Hamas terrorism or other Palestinian violations.
4 on Syria. Some of the concluding resolutions included language drafted by Syria's backers.
1 on Central African Republic. Criticized all parties, but failed to name government or other responsible agents.
1 on Libya. At the end of Qaddafi regime.
1 on Cote d’Ivoire
1 on DR Congo
1 on Myanmar
1 on Sudan. Outcome resolution also included praise.
0 on all the rest of the world

Ein, Israel came into existence under the auspices of both the League of Nations and the United Nations. It is sad that the (Lack of) Human Rights committee is controlled by Muslim countries and other countries do not want what they do looked at. In other words there is a continual "jolly" of attacking Israel all the time. The fact that Israel is probably the most moral country in the world, especially when it comes to war, is ignored.

I will never say that Israel is perfect but it tries to be and you can see that with the help that they offer world wide during disasters etc. They are also the only country in the world that is told what they can and can't do. They are a sovereignn nation with the right to do what they want and they do it under international law somthing that Muslim controlled countries fail to do.

This list is laughable if it weren't so damaging. Looks like they're following in the footsteps of the UN another corrupt world "watchdog."
