Press TV: The Trump administration’s plan to quit the United Nation's Human Rights Council (UNHRC) over the body’s “anti-Israel bias” comes despite the regime’s well-documented and widespread human rights abuses, a Jewish author* in London says.“What is fascinating is that America is doing it [quitting from the UNHRC] for Israel, the number 1 abuser of human rights in the contemporary world,” Gilad Atzmon, an Israeli-born British novelist, political activist and writer.
“This suggests that America is not a superpower; it basically operates as an Israeli colony,” Atzmon said Saturday in a phone interview with Press TV.
“This is quite embarrassing for [the] American people, but I assume most of them are probably used to the idea by now,” he added.
The United States plans to quit the United Nation's Human Rights Council, primarily over Washington's claim that the UN’s main human rights body is biased against Israel, according to US and Western diplomats.
Diplomats who requested anonymity said it appears more a matter of when, not if, the pullout will happen.
