32. Some facts
Only one nation has been condemned by the UNHRC-Israel.

When investigating last summer's Lebanon war, they specifically decided not to investigate Hezbollah's actions and only focus on Israel.

They have passed 8 resolutions-all condemning Israel.

They have yet to pass a single resolution condemning any actions in Darfur or anywhere else in the world.

And yesterday, they dismissed investigations on human rights violations in Cuba and Belarus-two very well know violators.

Flawed doesn't seem to accurately describe it. More like "fixated beyond the point of reasonableness" on condemning Israel and no one else.

Might as well rename it the UN We Hate Israel council.
