Rep. Roy reiterates demand that Biden defund UN ‘so-called’ Human Rights Council

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 worldโ€™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.

Taliban Holds Parade for 250 Newly Trained Soldiers with American-Made Weapons Left Behind

On Sunday, Taliban forces held a very bone-chilling parade showing off their captured American-made armored military vehicles and Russian helicopters. The act was โ€œa display that showed their ongoing transformation from an insurgent force to a regular standing armyโ€ writes CNN.

The Taliban are no longer terror insurgents fighting against American forces that had once freed Afghanistan from the Taliban. As the result of an ill-prepared withdrawal that went horribly wrong, the Taliban now holds a large stock of weapons and equipment left behind.

The parade was part of a graduation for 250 newly trained Taliban soldiers, said defense ministry spokesman Enayatullah Khwarazmi. CNN reports, โ€œThe exercise involved dozens of US-made M117 armored security vehicles driving slowly up and down a major Kabul road with MI-17 helicopters patrolling overhead. Many soldiers carried American-made M4 assault rifles.โ€

Tragically, much of the weaponry taunted in the parade by Taliban forces were supplied by the United States to the American-backed government in Kabul during the past two decades. The equipment was to aid an Afghan national force and make it capable of fighting the Taliban.

As forces fled Afghanistan, some of the military equipment provided by western forces was flown into Central Asian Countries in an attempt to avoid it landing in the hands of the Taliban. It remains unclear exactly how much of what did end up in Taliban control is still operational.

American troops destroyed over 70 aircraft and dozens of armored vehicles, as well as disabled air defenses before flying out of Kabul during the frenetic evacuation. CNN reports โ€œTaliban officials have said that pilots, mechanics and other specialists from the former Afghan National Army would be integrated into a new force, which has also started wearing conventional military uniforms in place of the traditional Afghan clothing normally worn by their fighters.โ€
