- The UN’s War on Israel – Ron Prosor
The once great global body – the United Nations – has been overrun by repressive regimes that violate human rights and undermine international security. Since 2012, the 120-member-strong bloc known as the Non-Aligned Movement has been chaired by Iran, which has used its position to bolster its allies and marginalize Israel. Later this year, chairmanship of the Non-Aligned Movement will transfer to Venezuela, Iran’s ally.
In 2013, Iran was elected to the committee responsible for disarmament – even as it continued its nuclear expansion, support for terrorism and the destruction of Israel. In the 2014-15 session alone, the General Assembly adopted about 20 resolutions critical of Israel, while the human rights situations in Iran, Syria and North Korea merited just one condemnation apiece. The writer is Israel’s ambassador to the UN. (New York Times)
