In the wake of UNESCO's attack on Israeli history, the United Nations is again meddling in the Jewish state's affairs. The Jerusalem Post's Danielle Ziri reports that Israeli Ambassador to the U.N. Danny Danon has slammed the international body for attempting to cut Israel "off from our homeland and our heritage":
UN Ambassador Danny Danon slammed the world body Wednesday for meddling in Israeli politics by funding the left-wing NGO B’Tselem.
“It is part of a cynical cycle in which the UN funds B’Tselem and similar organizations that have a particular political agenda, and then invites them to provide so-called ‘expert testimony,’” he said at Wednesday’s Security Council meeting on the Middle East. “This constitutes a direct interference in our democratic process by anti-Israel elements here at the UN.”
Danon then called on the council to put an end to UN funding for extremist organizations that seek to harm Israel.
Danon continued pointing a finger at the UN and its agencies, addressing the recent UNESCO resolution denying the historical connection between the Jewish people and holy sites in Jerusalem, which he called “an embarrassing stain on the pages of UN history.”
“These attempts to cut us off from our homeland and our heritage will not succeed,” he told the council.
“We will remain in our land and in our capital of Jerusalem forever.”
