Hillel Neuer of UN Watch just destroyed all those Muslim countries who claim Israel is an apartheid state. Bringing the facts, he silences the entire room.
How can Syria, Saudi Arabia, and other human rights abusing countries say Israel is an apartheid state? How does the UN allow this? Countries which kill their own people are speaking out against the ONE DEMOCRACY in the Middle East. Doesn’t that sound twisted?
Israel has 1.5 million Arabs living a life with full rights, being doctors and lawyers, being part of the knesset, and yet the countries speaking out against Israel have persecuted and expelled whatever Jews used to be living there. As Neuer calls them out, he says “Where are your Jews?” He asks where the REAL apartheid is.
The new US ambassador to the United Nations has accused the organisation of being anti-Israel ahead of important visits to Geneva and the Jewish state.
Nikki Haley criticised the UN Human Rights Council (UNHRC) for what she believes is a biased approach. In an opinion piece for the Washington Post, she said that “the council must end its practice of wrongly singling out Israel for criticism.”
“When the council passes more than 70 resolutions against Israel, a country with a strong human rights record, and just seven resolutions against Iran, a country with an abysmal human rights record, you know something is seriously wrong,” she wrote.
Ms Haley will make her inaugural trip to Israel as UN ambassador next week, as the country marks the 50th anniversary of its improbable victory in the Six Day War of 1967.
But first she will travel to Geneva, Switzerland to address the UNHRC, whose funding is under threat by the administration of President Donald Trump.
Mrs Haley has said she will make a decision about whether the US remains in the UNHRC depending on the outcome of discussions held in Geneva.
Mr Trump’s pro-Israel stance was seen as a move away from Barack Obama’s occasionally testy relationship with its Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu.
However, Mrs Haley’s remarks are similar to some of those made by the Obama-era US ambassador, Samantha Power, who last year said Israel was treated differently from other UN nations.
Mrs Haley’s visit to Israel comes days after Mr Trump decided to delay moving the US embassy in Israel from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. His promise to move the embassy was condemned by Palestinians and members of the international community.
Some believe that Israel’s annexation of the city is illegal. Palestinian Authority lead Mahmoud Abbas said the symbolic move would spark violence and open “the gates of hell.”
As Palestinians take stock of five decades living under military occupation this week, Mr Netanyahu will lead cabinet ministers, generals and Israeli veterans an event on Monday to mark the anniversary of the start of the Six Day War.
“Brothers and sisters, families of the fallen soldiers: The bravery of our fighters in the Six Day War will forever be remembered,” Mr Netanyahu told a crowd in Jerusalem at an earlier event.
He promised that the area of the Temple Mount, known to Muslims as the al-Aqsa Mosque compound, and the Western Wall would “forever remain under Israeli sovereignty”.
Sovereignty over the area has long been a stumbling block during peace negotiations. The Temple Mount is the holiest site in Judaism while the al-Aqsa mosque built on top of it is the third holiest in Islam.
A peace deal between Israelis and Palestinians would almost certainly require some sort of compromise over sovereignty. Mr Netanyahu emphasised his point by holding a symbolic cabinet meeting in an ancient tunnel underneath the Western Wall.
Palestinians condemned the move as “the latest provocation by the Israeli government, holding its weekly meeting the tunnels beneath the al-Aqsa Mosque compound in occupied east Jerusalem”.
Since the start of Six Day War began in June 1967 an estimated 18,000 Israelis and 75,000 Arabs have been killed in a series of conflicts, including the Yom Kipur War of 1973, the two Intifadas and three bloody wars in Gaza since 2008.
WHEN DOES ISRAEL GET A FARE SHAKE???
