The United States envoy to the UN, Nikki Haley, strongly condemned the United Nations Human Rights Council's bias against Israel in a speech to the body Tuesday afternoon.

Criticizing the UNHRC for failing to issue resolutions against Venezuela for its many violations of human rights, saying that the South American country "should step down from its seat on the human rights council until it can get its own house in order."

She then reprimanded the international body for instead issuing 5 resolutions against Israel since March. "It is essential that this council address its chronic anti-Israel bias if it wants to maintain its credibility," she said.
