Of the human rights of Palestinian women.
Joining me now Fox News national security analyst.
CT McFarland so this this is what they're worried about we saw what was it thirteen.
Murdered in Syria this week there -- women and children who were murdered.
They said by the government forces who are trying to squelch down these were these rebels.
And that now now entering Israel that's who we need to be -- If that Israel is -- country the United Nations loves to hate.
And the problem with it is as if you look at the hypocrisy of the United Nations -- Iran a country we're still stones women.
You look at other country well yeah.
They -- being unfaithful KTF but I mean this is this is the logic that they employees laid out but I think it's a bigger problem in this wide.
Because we're about we're -- crisis is brewing in the middle -- crisis has -- potentially between.
A Ron and Israel.
And the countries of the Persian gulf region and what you're seeing is a systematic approach by the United Nations.
To isolate Israel even more than it has in the past to -- what was upsetting about this -- You know yet another example of the United Nations treating Israel differently than the rest of the world.
Has to be expected.
But who was abstaining Imus who was going along with the gang up against Israel Europe and some of the European country why why would they -- it at ten European countries and and stained why would it stand we voted no we thought it now for us -- -- about it now countries like China and India voted yes to condemn Israel.
But there were -- number -- European countries which voted to abstain why.
I think in -- is -- pandering to the Arab states is -- pandering to the Muslim world.
Or is that there's there's something else going -- today what is lining up to is a situation where you're gonna choose -- going to be hearing Israel's side.
-- you're gonna be on the side of the Arab oil producing -- and what it reminds me out.
Is in 1973 during the Arab Israeli war 1973.
The United States wanted to resupply Israel we couldn't get any European country to allow us to land.
US military aircraft to refuel en route to Israel.
That was before the Arab oil embargo that was before the air -- states are using their oil wealth to intimidate other countries what's gonna happen now but -- But let me -- -- -- this was introduced by Algeria on behalf -- Arab states this this resolution.
And it was adopted by 29 to two vote right the US and Israel were the only no votes.
But they said that there were a number of issues they say including women hostages women an HIV aids issues.
Preventable maternal mortality and the right to sexual and reproductive.
Right these -- issues that they condemn other countries for doing they didn't single out any other countries they certainly didn't even accused is -- love doing these things against Palestinian women but they just couldn't help themselves they needed to go bash Israel one more time world body so against Israel.
And -- it's because of the numbers game if you look at the countries that make up the United Nations how many of them are Middle Eastern countries how many of them are Arab Middle Eastern Muslim countries how many of -- -- Jewish Middle Eastern countries one.
What it does matter because of that I don't just researching Benjamin Netanyahu prime minister of Israel's referred to the UN is a house of many lies in a theater of the absurd.
He calls it a place where Israel is unjustly singled out for condemnation.
More often than all the nations of the world combined time.
You know we just had this last week our Defense Secretary suggest that we need to get international permission.
Before we take any sort of military action abroad he was talking about Syria at the time -- dial those back and say I was speaking Mormon mandate.
But does this play -- when you look at the how the UN.
-- targets Israel this way and condemns Israel.
Does this -- -- to what the future will hold if we do have to step in or are asked to step in if Israel starts bombing Iran.
It and if there is a mentality that we need the OK.
From an international body like the UN -- to help Israel I mean does this suggest we're not gonna get it.
Well I mean if it weren't thinking that the United Nations is gonna help Israel or in some way come to Israel say that's -- -- the extreme.
But I do find it really upsetting that the secretary of defense implies that we're not going to ask United States congress.
For permission or concurrence if we want to use military force around the world but we're gonna make sure that we get permission from the United Nations.
Think that's got it all upside down we should be going and congress and that the US.
And the UN -- -- this is just the latest thing taking it taking China is real but have a group last year that condemned the United States for its human rights violation yeah.
For a lot of countries -- just go beat up on the United States and they.
And here the United States.
Gives the United Nations the majority of its budget.
Gives the United Nations -- -- Gives United Nations opportunities to hang around new York and -- the good life and what -- the United Nations do.
Can't help but take a swipe at the United States and Waller -- -- let's kick this room.
KT McFarland thank you thank you.
