On June 19, 2018, the United States government announced it was leaving the United Nations’ Human Rights Council. The US listed several reasons for leaving, but the biggest one, according to US Ambassador, Nikki Haley, was the organization’s longstanding bias against Israel.

On June 1, 2018 the United States was the only country to vote no on a United Nations Resolution submitted by member countries that condemned Israel for the deaths of numerous Palestinians that were murdered by Israeli troops. Because the US has veto power in the UN, its single no vote was enough to crush the resolution despite ten other countries that voted in favor of it.

The United Stated has the structure of a democracy with three different branches of government. There are supposed to be checks and balances between the three branches to prevent abuse of power by any one of the three branches of government.

The tripartite system of government is commonly ascribed to the French political philosopher Baron de Montesquieu. Having three branches of government is a necessary but not sufficient condition to insure a democracy. Montesquieu pointed out an additional requirement. The personnel of the three branches must not coincide. If a single person or entity controls all three branches, this destroys the checks and balances. The government ends up being an oligarchy.
