The Jerusalem Post attacks the World Health Organization’s annual assembly for last week’s condemnation of Israel for violating the health rights of Syrians in the Golan. The editor is most disheartened by the fact that “this disgraceful resolution was adopted in Geneva by a whopping majority of 104 to 4, with 6 abstentions and 65 no-shows,” and adds: “Israel, unjustly accused and unjustly convicted in another UN kangaroo court, was condemned even by European delegations, which purport to occupy the high moral ground – although they ought to know all about blood libel.”

As Israeli hospitals continue to save the lives of escalating numbers of wounded Syrians, the annual assembly of the UN World Health Organization voted by 104 to 4, with 6 abstentions, on May 20, 2015, to condemn Israel regarding “health conditions in the occupied Palestinian territory, including east Jerusalem, and in the occupied Syrian Golan.” Voting against the resolution were Australia, Canada, Israel, and the U.S. Countries voting to condemn Israel included China, France, Germany, India, Italy, Japan, Russia, and Britain.
The UN should single out Israel because if you walk into any Israeli hospital or clinic, you will see it replete with Palestinians receiving world-class medical treatment. The UN should single out Israel because its doctors have created the “Save A Child’s Heart” program, which has provided life-saving cardiac surgery to more than 3,400 children from 48 countries. About half the patients are Muslims from the West Bank, Gaza and other Arab countries. The UN should single out Israel because it was a world leader in responding to the deadly earthquake in Nepal, sending a 260-member army team of medics and search and rescue experts who treated 1,600 victims.
