Since its creation in 2006 to replace the widely discredited U.N. Commission on Human Rights, the council has passed 32 resolutions; 26 have been critical of Israel, according to UN Watch. More than half of the council’s members fall short of basic democracy standards, according to Freedom House, a democracy watchdog group. And in the past two years the council has moved to eliminate its country-specific special experts investigating human rights abuses in Darfur, Congo, Cuba, Belarus and Liberia.
The Anti-Defamation League has expressed concern about the Obama administration's decision. There is little chance of reforming this organization. The U.S. has only one vote on this council and most of the members are Israel haters or current human rights abusers.
