Combating Anti-Israel Bias at the UN

Last summer, Hamas and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad (PIJ) fired 4,400 rockets into Israel, reigning terror on innocent men, women, and children. Rather than rejecting these despicable acts of terror, the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) has opened an unfair and biased investigation into Israel’s response in self-defense.

Let me be clear: the Israeli people had every right to defend themselves from radical terrorists attacking their nation. The good news is that a bipartisan group of lawmakers agree, and we are working together to hold the UN accountable for this irresponsible investigation.

First, we are urging the House Appropriations Committee to withhold funding to the UNHRC until the investigation into Israel is permanently removed as an agenda item. We are also calling on Secretary of State Antony Blinken to get involved and – as the Biden administration put it – “uphold our strong commitment to Israel and its security.”

My commitment to Israel is firm and unwavering. It is a country and a people for which my admiration knows no bounds, and I will work every day to support them. It’s time to make sure the UN is doing the same.
