Kerry Urges World to Condemn Rising Anti-Semitism


John Kerry senator from MAU.S. Secretary of State John Kerry urged the world on Wednesday to condemn rising anti-Semitism and unite in the struggle against violent extremism and “terrorist bigots,” speaking at a commemoration of the 40th anniversary of the adoption of a UN resolution equating Zionism with racism.

Kerry called the 1975 resolution ominous because it gave “a global license to hate” the State of Israel, and he called on diplomats and governments to do everything in their power to prevent the UN from being hijacked again “for malicious intent.”

Kerry paid tribute to Israel’s then UN ambassador Chaim Herzog who tore the resolution to pieces at the General Assembly. The event was organized by Israel’s UN Mission and attended by more than 400 diplomats and members of Jewish organizations.
