GENEVA - The United States will not take the floor at the main U.N. human rights forum on Monday during the annual debate on violations committed in the Palestinian territories, a U.S. spokesman told Reuters.
The move at the 47-member state forum where Washington unfailingly defends Israel, follows signals that the Obama administration is undertaking a "reassessment" of relations with Israel.

Seems to me this is the equivalent of a story in the Bible where several denied the Messiah to the Romans....Obama is effectively denying Israel’s right to exist.
The US joined the USHRC in 2009, reversing Bush policy.

UNITED NATIONS, March 31 — The Obama administration decided Tuesday to seek a seat on the U.N. Human Rights Council, reversing a decision by the Bush administration to shun the United Nations’ premier rights body to protest the influence of repressive states.
This reminds me of the cops in San Fran when it comes to the mentally disabled, the Supreme court right now it trying to decide incredibly if cops have a right to defend themselves if a mentally disabled person comes at them with a knife. Same thing going on here with Israel, what the Urine Nations is trying to do is tell Israel them must accept their rocket attacks from the psycho Arabs and not defend themselves. Liberalism is a worldwide disease.
Reuters is incorrect.
The Israeli Foreign Ministry denies the attribution and says the US absence is at Israel’s request.

So the Human Rights Commission might pass a resolution condemning Israel? Whoopie.
Enablers? Those people appear to be worshipping!

The USA as a world power is now in eclipse. The radical US left have achieved their goal of weakening the USA and moving our nation off of the stage as a World power. We will have little or noting to say on any issue in the future.We just won’t matter.
