The Palestinian Authority (P.A.) continues to attack Israel at the United Nations, an audience that continues to listen and legitimize it. Israel Hayom reports that the P.A.'s envoy to the U.N. enraged Israel by comparing Palestinian terrorists to the Jewish resistance fighters of World War II:

Palestinian Ambassador to the United Nations Riyad Mansour sparked outrage on Wednesday when he compared Palestinian terrorists and murderers to the Jewish resistance fighters in the 1943 Warsaw Ghetto Uprising who were fighting against the Nazi efforts to transport the ghetto population to extermination camps.

Asked at a press conference in New York why Palestinians do not use the word terrorist to describe individuals who murder or attempt to murder Israelis, Mansour replied, "Israel's representative on the U.N. Security Council is trying to show that all the Palestinian people who have legitimate rights to resist occupation in legitimate ways -- he paints them as terrorists."

"Guess what?" he continued. "All colonizers, all occupiers, including those who suppressed the Warsaw [Ghetto] uprising, labeled those who resisted them as terrorists."
