In 2018, the United States of America, arguably one of the most powerful and influential countries in the world, voluntarily left the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) due to its perceived bias of and unfair treatment towards the State of Israel. The previous version of the UNHRC was the Commission of Human Rights (CHR). The CHR was discontinued from problems associated with biases and human rights violators sitting as members. Thus, it is important to stay vigilant and keep the UNHRC accountable. If the UNHRC is targeting the State of Israel, this would be a serious issue, of which the world should be made aware. Through comparative analysis of Egypt, Jordan, and Saudi Arabia, this research sets out to show any discrepancies in UNHRC treatment of Israel.
