Petition

Francesca Albanese must be removed immediately

For far too long, Albanese has abused her UN mandate to spread Hamas propaganda. She is the first UN special rapporteur in history to be condemned by France, Germany and the U.S. for antisemitism.

On top of this, she refuses to disclose her expenses or payments illegally received by her office from non-UN actors.

Sign the petition to demand that the UN fire Special Rapporteur Francesca Albanese now.

The case against unrwa

An Agency Mandated to Keep the Conflict Alive

UN Watch has been sounding the alarm on UNRWA for almost a decade, sending countless warnings to the UN and donor states about UNRWA teachers who promoted terrorism and antisemitism on social media. Sadly the warnings were ignored, allowing the problem to grow until at least a dozen UNRWA employees took part in the October 7th massacre. UN Watch has since exposed that 3,000 teachers were in a Telegram group that celebrated the attack.

Since February 2024, UN Watch’s petition to #ReplaceUNRWA has garnered over 150,000 signatures. UN Watch organized the first International Summit for a Future Beyond UNRWA, convening experts in international aid to testify on alternatives that can be put in place to replace UNRWA’s services. Lawmakers around the world rely on UN Watch for the latest information on UNRWA and have called on the organization to testify before numerous parliaments.

Petition

Condemn Hamas Rape & Fire UN Women's Sarah Douglas

Under the leadership of Executive Director Sima Bahous, the former Jordanian Ambassador to the UN — and Deputy Chief Sarah Douglas, who deleted her social media accounts after being exposed for endorsing 153 pro-Hamas tweets, in violation of her oath of neutrality — UN Women shamefully waited 57 days after the attack to condemn Hamas committing mass rape.

We appeal to UN Women Goodwill Ambassadors Nicole Kidman, Anne Hathaway and Emma Watson to speak out loudly and forcefully against the mass atrocities and rape committed by Hamas terrorists against Israeli women on October 7th and demand that UN Women fire Sarah Douglas for violating her oath of neutrality, endorsing anti-Israel tweets, and betraying Israeli women.

Facts and Myths about Israel at the UN

Every session of the UN Human Rights Council features a standing agenda item targeting Israel. No other country in the world—not Iran, Russia or North Korea—is singled out in this fashion.

We examine false claims made at the UN under this rubric, show viral videos of UN Watch’s speeches in the Item 7 debates, and provides other key information to support the campaign to abolish a discriminatory institution that was condemned by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon the day after its adoption.

Terminate the U.N.'s Anti-Israel Commission of Inquiry

The U.N.’s new Commission of Inquiry against Israel, initiated by Pakistan and the PLO, is a travesty of justice. Despite U.N. rules requiring impartiality, each of three commissioners has a record of extreme anti-Israel positions. One of them was even condemned worldwide for making antisemitic remarks. It’s time to end the U.N.’s perpetual inquisition against the Jewish state.
