Israeli occupation does not want any national or international body, even if it is an Israeli institution, to highlight the Palestinian suffering inflected by the continuous Israeli aggression

Israeli Defence Minister Avigdor Lieberman urged on Wednesday US Secretary of State Rex Tillerson to halt US support for UN agency that deals with Palestinian refugees.

He also urged him to cut the American support for the United Nation Human Rights Council over its reports which highlight some of the Israeli crimes against the Palestinians.

During a meeting at the State Department, Lieberman urged Tillerson to consider quitting the Geneva-based UN Human Rights Council and to stop funding the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East, known as UNRWA.

The agencies do not fulfill their mission, he told Tillerson. “Instead, the Human Rights Council deals with demonising Israel and with efforts to harm it by distorting reality,” he claimed.

Last week, the US envoy to the Human Rights Council, Erin Barclay, criticised the council for criticising Israel.

“Regrettably, too many of the actions of this council do not support these universal principles. Indeed, they contradict them,” Barclay said.

“The UNHRC limits the good we can accomplish by making a mockery of this council. The United States will oppose any effort to delegitimize or isolate Israel,” added.
