Shock as Majority Of Countries Voted Against An Absurd UN Resolution introduced by Arab states

Unde the UN Human Rights council’s controversial "Agenda Item 7" Every year Arab countries use the UN to attack Israel.
As usual, the Council — whose members include China, Cuba, Egypt, Qatar, Pakistan, Venezuela, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and UAE — passed zero resolutions on human rights violations by China, Cuba, Egypt, Qatar, Pakistan, Venezuela, Iraq, Saudi Arabia and UAE, nor on Turkey, Algeria, Vietnam, Zimbabwe, etc.
But this time European countries, together with US, Australia, Japan and Brazil, take a stand against item 7, the only permanent item on the agenda singling out any one nation (Israel).
Israel is a population of eight million in a world of seven billion. Yet since its foundation, the Human Rights Council has adopted 135 country-specific resolutions; 68 of which against Israel. Justice is blind and impartial. By continuing an unacceptable pattern of bias through Item 7, the Council discredits its necessary voice, hardening positions on both sides. For as long as the Human Rights Council continues down this disproportionate and biased path, it will make the achievement of a negotiated two-state solution harder not easier.
[UnderMain] Since its founding in 2006, has adopted more resolutions against Israel than on Iran, Syria and North Korea combined; has convened more urgent sessions and inquiries on Israel than on any other country; and singles out Israel alone under a permanent agenda item et every session.
Israel is the only country in the Middle East where women are truly free.
603 million women live in countries where domestic violence is not considered a crime. In Iran, women are being arrested for refusing to wear a hijab.
Women in israel From all sectors and religions are more disadvantaged economically, politically, and socially than are women in the rest of the Middle East (Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Iraq, Saudi Arabia, United Arab Emirates, etc.)
Israel is the only democratic state in the entire Middle East, the only place in the Middle East where Christians are safe and women are free.
