After the United Nations Human Rights Council voted Thursday to establish an investigation into Israel, Congressman Chip Roy, R-TX, defended an earlier demand that Biden defund the global body. He tells SaraACarter.com exclusively that the council has proven yet again to be biased.
“The United Nations’ so-called ‘Human Rights’ Council just can’t resist proving that it is nothing but a corrupt, Israel-hating propaganda club,” Roy said. “This most-recent council vote to establish an anti-Israel commission proves yet again why the US should not grant this body a single taxpayer dollar or legitimize any of its actions by rejoining it.”
The Council has yet to condemn the Chinese Community Party. Meanwhile, they’ve condemned Israel dozens of times. “The UNHCR does nothing but defend the world’s worst dictators and while libeling one our greatest allies,” Roy added. “Congress should immediately take up and pass H.R. 1021, which I introduced to block the United States from funding it.”
Roy introduced a bill in February to prohibit U.S. contributions to the United Nations Human Rights Council as the Biden administration looks to rejoin it, as reported by The Daily Caller.
The bill also seeks to rescind any outstanding contributions towards the UNHRC.
Israel Prime Minister Netanyahu also accused the council of having a “blatant anti-Israel obsession,” in a Thursday statement.

The Guardian Removes Osama bin Laden’s “Letter to America” Amidst Viral Resurfacing
The Guardian, a left-wing media outlet, has taken down Osama bin Laden’s notorious “Letter to America” from its website this week after the words of the deceased terrorist mastermind, responsible for the attacks on September 11, 2001, gained traction on social media.
The letter, which had been published on The Guardian’s website since 2002, resurfaced online, causing a sudden spike in traffic. Social media users unearthed and shared the anti-American and antisemitic content, propelling the document to viral status. The Guardian, acknowledging the increased circulation without the full context, opted to remove the transcript.
According to reports from Fox News Digital, a spokesperson for The Guardian stated, “The transcript published on our website 20 years ago has been widely shared on social media without the full context. Therefore we have decided to take it down and direct readers to the news article that originally contextualized it instead.” The outlet declined to provide additional comments on the matter.
Osama bin Laden’s letter, translated into English, justified al-Qaeda’s attacks against the U.S. by citing American actions in Palestine. The deceased terrorist accused the U.S. of supporting the creation and continuation of Israel, labeling it one of the “greatest crimes” that must be erased. Bin Laden’s letter also propagated antisemitic tropes, claiming Jews control American policies, media, and the economy.
The 9/11 attacks, orchestrated by al-Qaeda, resulted in the deaths of nearly 3,000 people and left thousands more injured. The letter’s resurgence occurred as it was shared by social media influencers on platforms like TikTok, with some expressing a change in perspective. Pro-Palestinian activist Lynette Adkins was among those who shared the letter online, prompting discussions and reflections.
The Guardian’s decision to remove the letter from its website underscores the sensitivity surrounding the content and its potential impact, particularly as young individuals across America engage with pro-Palestinian talking points. The episode has sparked debates about the influence of social media in reshaping perceptions and the responsibility of media outlets in disseminating controversial historical documents.
