Would express the sense of Congress that the U.S. should oppose any UN investigation into the Gaza flotilla incident and support Israel’s unconditional right to self-defense and blockade Gaza. Further, the bill would require the secy. of state to: (1) direct the U.S. permanent representative to the UN to cease participation in the UN Human Rights Council; (2) not contribute any funds to the UN for any investigation into the Gaza flotilla incident; and (3) ensure that no previous contributions to the UN are used for such an investigation, and if necessary withhold future contributions to the UN in an amount equal to that spent on an investigation.
