  1. Founded in 1945 after the end of World War II, the United Nations consists of 193 Member States. While the UN Charter calls for maintaining international peace and security, friendly relations, human rights, and solving international problems regarding economic, social, cultural, and humanitarian values, Israel is consistently singled out for criticism.
  2. A large voting bloc of UN Member nations belong to the Non Aligned Movement. (NAM) The NAM has 120 members, many of them are Muslim nations. Horrific conflicts like Syria are minimized while Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East, is accused of multiple violations in international law and other fora.
  3. The United Nations Human Rights Council is composed of 47 nations. Their focus is highlighting and addressing human rights violations. Shockingly, in March 2016 they closed a month long meeting in Geneva where they wrongly slandered Israel five times more than any of the 193 UN member states.
