UN Passes Six Resolutions Condemning Israel


united-nations-general-assemblyThe UN General Assembly passed six resolutions concerning Israel this week, including one declaring 2014 as the “International Year of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.”

Others called for Israel to return the Golan Heights to Syria and to cease imposing its jurisdiction on Yerushalayim

As the UN General Assembly held a special session on Monday to mark “International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People,” Israeli Ambassador Ron Prosor said,
“Anti-Israel bias pervades the UN system all year round. In 2012, [the General Assembly] found the time to pass 22 resolutions condemning Israel – compared with only four that single out other nations. The worst human rights abusers receive a fraction of the condemnation that Israel – the only democracy in the Middle East – receives….The states that rubberstamp the anti-Israel resolutions every year have given the Palestinians a false sense of reality and fed their culture of victimhood.”

“One of these resolutions condemned Israel’s treatment of the Syrian people….It is inconceivable that while Israeli hospitals are treating the Syrians who escaped Assad’s massacre, the UN is denouncing Israel’s treatment of the Syrians.”
