Shock at the UN as Australian Foreign Minister Marise lashes out at the UNHRC


Australian Foreign Minister Marise Payne slams the UNHRC's systematic anti-Israel bias.
"Australia opposes in principle the existence of Item 7 of the agenda of the Council. It is our firm view that a separate agenda item focusing on a single country situation, in this case, Israel, is inappropriate. It does not occur in any other context for any other country."
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.
