In her most recent speech to the Council, with the end of her role as Israel's representative to UN institutions in Geneva, Raz-Schechter removed the diplomatic mask and offered the Council, known for its hostility to Israel, what it really thinks.

Raz-Schechter stressed that despite Israel's attempts to exterminate since its inception, which is still ongoing, "Israel has built a modern state, a start-up nation (start-up), a dynamic and pluralistic society, a strong democracy in the rule of law and the protection of individual rights. , Including those of religious minorities. A country that longs for peace with its neighbors. "
While Israel was building itself, the Israeli ambassador said, "The Palestinian leadership and its representatives prefer victims over peace, distant public relations, blame games rather than taking responsibility for what was or could be."

"This Council has one agenda designed to condemn only one state. Article 7 is nothing but a systematic mechanism of discrimination against Israel and Israel, deeply rooted in the culture of this Council and of some of its member states. (To this Council; IA) One Special Representative with an indefinite mandate - To condemn the Jewish state. Let's call Section 7 its proper name - the institutionalized anti-Semitism section. "
The UN Human Rights Council has made many anti-Israeli decisions over the years. Among other things, the council released six months ago a list of international companies operating in Judea and Samaria, with the aim of reducing their revenues. Israel boycotted the council for long periods, and the US even retired From the hostile body because of its inherent bias against Israel.
Speaking to "Israel Today," Ambassador Raz-Schechter said that after four years in Geneva, she wanted to present what was happening in this arena clearly and truthfully, including from a personal perspective, against the background of her long-standing diplomatic experience, and in particular the Human Rights Council.
"Towards the end of the mission, I had the opportunity and used it to say the things that need to be heard before the Council and the international arena as they are, and also because we in the audience are not aware of what is going on here. I presented the facts, as I always do, with the aim of showing discrimination, distortion and imbalance. I have called the child - Article 7 of the Human Rights Council's Permanent Agenda - in his name ("institutionalized anti-Semitism"; so) because no country in the world has Won such a section and such ratio. Israel is the only country in the Human Rights Council, as well as the World Health Organization here in Geneva, there are clauses that deal with it and only on it, and regularly. "
