Watch: Australian PM Lashing out at the 'corrupt' UN - Time to follow US and withdraw from the U.N. Human Rights Council

Australia must follow US and withdraw from the U.N. Human Rights Council.
The United States has withdrawn from the United Nations' top human rights body accusing it of 'hypocrisy' and bias against Israel.
The Council has been around for 12 years. The members today include China, Cuba, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, and so forth.
The worst abusers continue to get a free pass. There are no resolutions on Turkey, on Pakistan, on Venezuela. Most of the world’s worst abusers get a free pass.
The decision to pull out of the UN Human Rights Council was announced on by Nikki Haley, while serving as the US ambassador to the UN.
"We take this step because our commitment does not allow us to remain a part of a hypocritical and self-serving organisation that makes a mockery of human rights," she said.

The Middle East conflict is framed as one of the most complex problems in the world. But, in reality, it's very simple.
Israel wants to exist as a Jewish state and to live in peace. Israel also recognizes the right of Palestinians to have their own state and to live in peace. The problem, however, is that most Palestinians and many other Muslims and Arabs, do not recognize the right of the Jewish state of Israel to exist.
Israel was founded in 1948, and since that auspicious day, its neighbors have tried to destroy it, again and again.
In 1967, the dictator of Egypt, Gamal Abdel Nasser, announced his plan, in his words, “to destroy Israel.” He placed Egyptian troops on Israel’s border, and armies of surrounding Arab countries were also mobilized to attack. Israel begged Jordan’s king not to join the war. But he did. And only because of that did Israel take control of Jordanian land, specifically the “West Bank” of the Jordan River.
It’s important to remember that today’s disputed territories which Israel obtained in 1967 were conquered in a defensive war from Jordan…not from any state of Palestine.
In fact, Judea and Samaria (The West Bank and East Jerusalem) have never been part of a Palestinian state, nor was there a Palestinian state previously.
In addition, the Gaza Strip never belonged to a Palestinian state, Gaza Strip was conquered by Israel in a defensive war from Egypt.
Israelis want to live in peace and are willing to accept a neighboring Arab state But we must not forget what happened when Israel gave Gaza to the Palestinians.
The residents of Gaza voted as a terrorist organization, Hamas controlled the Gaza Strip.
Peace will come when the Arab states understand that Israel is not going anywhere.
