UN Chief Admits Criticism of Israel Is Disproportionate

Those of us who stand for Israel realize the great amount of bias leveled against the Jewish state by many international figures, chief among them the United Nations. Now, Israel Hayom reports that the outgoing U.N. head has admitted that the U.N. has disproportionately attacked Israel:

Outgoing U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon admitted Saturday that the United Nations is, in fact, biased toward Israel.

"Over the last decade I have argued that we cannot have a bias against Israel at the U.N.," Ban told the U.N. Security Council. "Decades of political maneuvering have created a disproportionate number of resolutions, reports and committees against Israel. In many cases, instead of helping the Palestinian issue, this reality has foiled the ability of the U.N. to fulfill its role effectively..."

He further lambasted Hamas for its "anti-Semitic charter, which seeks to destroy Israel," and called on the Gaza Strip's rulers to "condemn violence once and for all and recognize Israel's right to exist..."

Israel's Ambassador to the U.N. Danny Danon leveled harsh criticism at the U.N. following Ban's admission.
