UNHRC Agenda Item 7

Please pray for God to bring the UNHRC back to its original purpose and away from its anti-Israel tendencies. Out of 12 resolutions being voted on this week, 5 targeting Israel are likely to be adopted by the end of the week. The UNHRC is infamously biased against Israel, with nearly half of its resolutions focused solely on Israel while it ignores war, strife and atrocities committed around the globe. Agenda Item 7 being voted on today, known as the “Human rights situation in Palestine and other occupied Arab territories,” is a permanent UNHRC agenda item that mandates discussion on any alleged Israeli human rights abuses against Palestinians. It is debated three times a year. The US has always boycotted the Agenda Item Seven debate, but now as a contributor of 22 percent of the UN’s budget, the US is discussing whether to cut back funding.
