UN 8, Israel 0
Stand for Israel | December 13, 2019
It shouldn’t surprise us at all, but it continues to shock us — the world’s ongoing anti-Israel bias. Today, our friends at UN Watch inform us, it is happening yet again, as the United Nations adopts resolutions condemning Israel, while ignoring the world’s true villains:
The United Nations General Assembly today will adopt eight resolutions that single out or condemn Israel, and zero on the entire rest of the world.
The texts condemn Israel for “repressive measures” against Syrian citizens in the Golan Heights, renew the mandate of the corrupt UN Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), and renew the mandate of the UN’s “special committee to investigate Israeli practices affecting the human rights of the Palestinian people and other Arabs of the Occupied Territories.” (Click here for texts and voting sheets.)
The eight resolutions were previously adopted on November 15th by the General Assembly’s Special Political and Decolonization Committee, known as the Fourth Committee. Today, the votes will be repeated when the General Assembly plenary formally ratifies the texts.
“The UN’s assault on Israel with a torrent of one-sided resolutions is surreal,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, a Geneva-based non-governmental watchdog organization.
“Last month, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad terrorist group assaulted Israeli civilians with a barrage of 400 rockets — while the UN’s General Assembly and Human Rights Council stayed silent. The world body now adds insult to injury by adopting eight lopsided condemnations, whose only purpose is to demonize the Jewish state.”
