The United Nations General Assembly passed nine resolutions condemning Israel on Friday as compared a total of six condemnatory resolutions for the rest of the world combined — with one each on Syria, North Korea, Iran, Crimea, Myanmar, as well as one on the U.S. for its Cuba embargo.
Hillel Neuer, executive director of the Geneva-based monitoring group UN Watch, described the action as “part of its annual ritual of enacting 20 Arab-sponsored resolutions singling out the Jewish state, and making no mention of Hamas stabbings, shootings or vehicular attacks against Israelis.”
“The U.N.’s assault on Israel today with a torrent of one-sided resolutions is surreal,” said Neuer.
“Even after Syrian president Bashar Assad has used chemical weapons against his own people within the past year, the U.N. is about to adopt a resolution — drafted and co-sponsored by Syria — which falsely condemns Israel for ‘repressive measures’ against Syrian citizens on the Golan Heights. It’s obscene,” said Neuer.
“With chaos enveloping more of the Middle East with each passing day, this body has chosen, once again, to demonize Israel and ignore reality,” Israeli diplomat Hadas Meitzad said at a UN committee on Friday. “Rather than address the unspeakable tragedy in Syria, the rapid escalation of violence and humanitarian crisis in Yemen, Iran’s continued sponsorship of terror across the region, or the instability in Lebanon, this committee has devoted nearly a quarter of its allocated time to make baseless and outrageous attacks against Israel.
