Why There Should Be UN Israel Bias

The US have announced Thursday it is withdrawing from the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) due to alleged 'anti-Israel bias' which Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu hailed as a brave and moral decision.
My reply is if their isn't a United Nation bias against Israel then something is very, very wrong because Israel  has quite rightly been on the end of an amazing number of UN resolutions, mostly calling for the nation to stop attacking its neighbours. 
Israel had been condemned in 45 resolutions by United Nations Human Rights Council, almost more resolutions condemning Israel than on the rest of the world combined and the UN General Assembly has adopted a number of resolutions saying that the Israelis are performing war crimes and crimes against humanity and that the strategic relationship with the United States bankrolling the Israeli military encourages it to pursue aggressive and expansionist policies and practices.
Poor old Israel, what has it done to be on the end of the UN's ire in its 65 years lifetime?
Take your pick from scuppering peace talks at every turn, mopping up occupied Palestinian land with illegal settlements, killing innocent Palestinians, holding over 9000 Palestinians in its prisons, destroying farms, bulldozing homes and businesses, using Palestinian children as human shields and building a monstrous wall deemed illegal by the international court of justice, oppression of its neighbours and turning Gaza into an outdoor prison.
America is finding itself on the wrong side of so many arguments recently under the man his own Secretary of State Rex Tillerson called 'a moron' and backing the most warmongering nation on the planet is yet another one.
If their isn't a UN bias, there certainly should be as Israel defies countless UN resolutions and carries on it's occupation and genocide against the citizens of Palestine while other countries are invaded and leaders removed for defying just one.
