The United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday adopted six anti-Israel resolutions sponsored by the Palestinian Authority and Syria. Incredibly, the UN body also insisted Israel relinquish the strategic Golan Heights – at a time when Assad is massacring his own people and ISIS is on the march.
In one of the resolutions, the U.N. condemned Israel for retaining the northern Golan Heights region, demanding that Israel hand that territory to Syria. Another resolution urged Israel to end its “occupation” of Judea and Samaria and invoked the Palestinians’ right to self-determination. Six nations—Israel, United States, Canada, Marshall Islands, Micronesia, and Palau—voted against the measures, with four countries abstaining.
Hillel Neuer, executive director of U.N. Watch, called the world body’s timing on the resolutions “morally galling and logically absurd.”
“It’s astonishing,” said Neuer. “At a time when the Syrian regime is massacring its own people, how can the U.N. call for more people to be subject to [Syrian President Bashar] Assad’s rule?”
Neuer added, “What is also outrageous is that these resolutions claim to care about Palestinians, yet the U.N. proves itself oblivious to the hundreds of Palestinians who continue to be slaughtered, maimed and expelled by Assad’s forces.”
The U.N. has a longstanding reputation of disproportionate criticism of Israel.
