The United States is prepared to pull out of the United Nation's Human Rights Council over its pervasive anti-Israeli bias.

The Hill reports:

A source told Reuters that the move could be “imminent.” The council will begin a three-week session in Geneva on Monday.

Other diplomatic sources told Reuters that the withdrawal was “not a question of if but of when.”

U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley has clashed with the council over its treatment of Israel and has repeatedly voted against U.N. measures that were critical of that country. Most recently, the U.S. and Australia were the only two members to vote against a proposal to investigate Israel’s alleged use of excessive force in Gaza.

Haley has criticized the council over what she called a “chronic anti-Israel bias” and threatened last year to leave.

The U.S. had previously rejoined the council under President Obama after boycotting it for a pernicious bias against the Middle East's sole democracy for the final three years of President George W. Bush's administration.
