Secretary of State Antony Blinken and a senior US diplomat in Geneva will announce plans for the US to rejoin the United Nations Human Rights Council as an observer on Monday, the Associated Press reported.

Former President Donald Trump withdrew from the council in 2018 after his administration said it was politically biased, especially towards Israel.

That's from the report.

I would think that political bias toward Israel is a pro-Israel bias. Political bias against Israel would be an anti-Israel bias.

I think the journalist made a mistake with word choice.

According to the report it was the Trump administration that made the poor word choice.

As you appear to have so much time in your day, perhaps you or Noldor could investigate.

The 'bias toward Israel' is not a Trump administration quote...

Business Insider gets it right in this article:

"The US officially withdrew from the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) on Tuesday, citing the organization's political bias particularly against its ally Israel."

Who said it?

There isn't actually a quote on that site that mentions Bias against Israel. It just a matter of semantics anyway. Critical bias aimed towards Israel is just as valid a way of expressing the position.

You and Noldor are not the language police as much as you like to think so.

I'm not claiming to know who said it. You were the one that claimed it was a poor word choice on the part of the Trump administration.

Without a quote by someone in the Trump administration, it can't be a poor word choice on the part of the Trump administration.

...in my world, it's sharing an opinion.

OK well now we have that straight, your "opinion" on such a non issue means absolutely f*ck all to me.

You appeared to care about it a great deal, considering your response to it...
