Amnesty calls on UN powers to lose veto on genocide votes

This BBC report about Amnesty International's call to end the five members of the UN Security Council's veto in cases of genocide mentions some countries by name:

'Amnesty's annual report makes for sober reading, notes our correspondent.

This is unsurprising, he adds, given the atrocities committed in Syria, Iraq, Nigeria, Central African Republic and other countries.

Amnesty's report said that 2014 had led to one of the worst refugee crises in history, with four million Syrians displaced by war and thousands of migrants dying in the Mediterranean.'

I will wager a fair sum that the first country to be accused of genocide will be Israel and not the countries named above. The United Nations is hopelessly biased against Israel and this would be another way to vilify the only majority Jewish state in the world.
