US quits virulently anti-Israel UN Human Rights Council. The WaPo says the Council has “perceived bias.” That’s rich.

Amb. Nikki Haley called the UN Human Rights Council a “cesspool of political bias.” She is correct, of course.

The Washington Post’s own article cites plenty of corroborating evidence, none of simply “perceived.”

Apparently the WaPo headline writer missed it. Here’s what the article itself says:

Since 2006, the Human Rights Council has passed more than 70 resolutions critical of Israel, 10 times as often as it has criticized Iran.

On one day alone in March, the council passed five resolutions condemning Israel.

The council’s current membership includes 14 countries ranked as “not free” by Freedom House:
Afghanistan,
Angola,
Burundi,
China,
Cuba,
Congo,
Egypt,
Ethiopia,
Iraq,
Qatar,
Rwanda,
Saudi Arabia,
the United Arab Emirates and
Venezuela.

Haley said many countries agree with U.S. accusations of anti-Israel bias on the council and hypocrisy by abusers but would not openly challenge the status quo. –Washington Post

What I perceive is that the Washington Post writes misleading headlines.
