Practically speaking, the enforcement of international law is dependent upon the parties involved and not the actual crimes. If America or Israel break international law (which they do regularly), then there are no consequences because of who they are. If a country that is not friendly with America breaks international law, then they are condemned and sometimes punished.

The history of UN Security Council resolutions shows many examples of the United States and its closest allies voting against the vast majority of council member nations. The most obvious examples are resolutions regarding Israel's policies against Palestine.

Well obviously. But beyond that I don't even think it qualifies. Of course they're going to claim it because they want to US to stop but I don't think it actually counts.
