The United Nations has long shown itself to be both anti-Israel and, in turn, anti-Semitic. But now, Ynet News’ Itamar Eichner reports that Israel is combating this historical bias with a new campaign at the U.N. — #No2Antisemitism:

Presidents, prime ministers, ambassadors and ministers will be asked to participate in an online campaign against anti-Semitism which is being initiated by the Israeli delegation to the United Nations.

The 73rd United Nations General Assembly meeting is scheduled to take place in New York next month, between September 25-28, where the Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon will launch an online campaign against anti-Semitism.

The campaign will include slogans such as: “united against anti-Semitism,” “anti-Semitism has no place in our world,” “we were not born to hate,” and “make your voice heard against anti-Semitism…”

“Israel and the Jews are still a target of anti-Semitism under the guise of anti-Zionism,” said Ambassador Danon. “We must act with all our resources to combat modern anti-Semitism in order to guarantee the security of the Jewish people in Israel and the Diaspora…”
