22 UN General Assembly Resolutions Targeted Israel This Year, 4 for Rest of World, Holocaust Revisionist Endorsed

By the end of this week the current 2012 UNGA session will have adopted 22 country-specific resolutions targeting Israel – and only four on the rest of the world combined, one each for Syria, Iran, North Korea and Burma, according to UN Watch.

On Tuesday alone The U.N. General Assembly adopted nine resolutions on  “Palestinian rights and the Golan,” sharply criticizing Israel yet making no mention of Sunday’s massacre of Palestinian Arabs by Syrian warplanes firing missiles into a mosque in a refugee camp near Damascus.

On the UN Watch’s website Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, underscored the absurdity of the resolution tally. “The U.N.’s disproportionate assault against the Jewish state undermines the credibility of what is supposed to be an impartial and respected international body, and exposes the sores of politicization and selectivity that eat away at its founding mission, eroding the U.N. Charter promise of equal treatment to all nations large and small,” he said.

“With more than 40,000 killed in Syria, and millions of Syrian refugees suffering now in the cold of winter, it ought to shock the conscience of mankind that the U.N. will devote more than 80 percent of this session’s resolutions to Israel, and just one, on Thursday, to Syria.”

Today the UN is set to adopt a resolution ratifying all of the 2012 resolutions and decisions of its subsidiary, the 47-nation Human Rights Council. Among them is the appointment in March of Alfred de Zayas to the council as an “Independent Expert on the promotion of a democratic and equitable international order.”

De Zayas has written extensively on World War II, inverting history by placing the allies in the terror camp while becoming an apologist for Nazi crimes. His writings have endeared him to many Holocausr deniers.

Other insulting statements include:

– “Moses had such a rough time bringing the Jewish people across the Red Sea because half of them were busy picking up pretty shells.”

–  “Israel emerged out of terrorism against the indigenous population” and its representatives should be denied U.N. accreditation.

    According to Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia:
    …1-“Philip Hitti almost single handedly created the discipline of Arabic Studies in the United States.”

    …2- “In 1944 before a U. S. House committee, Hitti gave testimony in support of the view that there was no historical justification for a Jewish homeland in Palestine. His testimony was reprinted in the Princeton Herald. In response, Albert Einstein and his friend and colleague Erich Kahler jointly replied in the same newspaper with their counter-arguments. Hitti then published a response and Einstein and Kahler concluded the debate in the Princeton Herald with their second response.[1] In 1945 Hitti served as an adviser to the Iraqi delegation at the San Francisco Conference which established the United Nations. In 1946, Hitti was the first Arab-American witness at the Anglo-American Committee of Inquiry on Palestine. Bartley Crum, an American member of the committee, recalled that Hitti.. explained that there was actually no such entity as Palestine- never had been; it was historically part of Syria, and “the Sunday schools have done a great deal of harm to us because by smearing the walls of classrooms with maps of Palestine, they associate it with the Jews in the minds of the average American and Englishman”… He asserted that Zionism.. was an imposition on the Arabs of alien way of life which they resented and to which they would never submit.”

    • According to Philip Hitti Palestine never exited there fore it seems clear that there are NO PALESTINIANS.
      …AND…
      ISRAEL AND JERUSALEM HAS AND ALWAYS WILL EXIST!

      • Actually, “Israel” does have a beginning; it did not “always exist”. Ancient “Israel” was a man, not a country. The modern incarnation of Israel was created by Britain and the US. And it, like many nations, began ,and can, end.

  • Read Obama’s Cairo speech: he loves the Koran..As Winston Churchill said in THE GATHERING STORM in 1948: “MEIN KAMPF was the new KORAN”…

  • Keep going, ‘United Nations’, keep maligning Israel, keep picking on them, keep pressing them; with the grace & divine intercedence of God Almighty, He will smash you all to pieces. Israel will last forever & woe to ANYONE who dares divide Jerusalem. He’s coming sooner than you think & every eye will see Him, every knee will bow, & every tongue will profess Him as Lord & Savior; MARANATHA!

    The UN is the most worthless body in the world. If the United States would stop supporting it, it would do what it should have years ago. STOP ANY OPERATIONS. They are nothing but a destructive organization. The only thing that may be good is that their resolutions don’t mean a thing. Look at Iran. They just keep heading to “the bomb” and ignore the resolutions like everyone else. God Bless Israel. And HE will as HE has done over all these years.

    בס”ד
    Civilized countries should abandon such an immoral institution to its destiny, as it’s written [Psalms 1:1]:
    אַ֥שְֽׁרֵי־הָאִ֗ישׁ אֲשֶׁ֤ר ׀ לֹ֥א הָלַךְ֮ בַּעֲצַ֪ת רְשָׁ֫עִ֥ים וּבְדֶ֣רֶךְ חַ֭טָּאִים לֹ֥א עָמָ֑ד וּבְמֹושַׁ֥ב לֵ֝צִ֗ים לֹ֣א יָשָֽׁב׃
    that is: Praise to those who do not follow the counsel of evildoers, who do not take the road of sinners and who DO NOT SIT IN A COUNCIL OF SCORNERS.
    Shabbata Shalom

  • The UN has proven itself completely useless and bias, time and again. I am appalled that the rest of the world doesn’t care and is willing to allow such hatred to be part of the UN’s agenda.
    I must be nice to be so righteous and have someone to blame all of the world’s woes on. According to the UN, Israel is the sole reason for everything that is wrong in the world, since the UN seems to spend most of it’s time coming up with resolutions against Israel. I’m only surprised Israel hasn’t been blamed for North Korea too.
    I’ve said it before, the UN has proven itself useless and ineffective in getting anything worthwhile done. Instead of focusing on the entire world, the entire world focuses on Israel and finds something to blame it on.
    Disgusting!

  • Since Obama loves
    the Koran with its foundational antisemitism…I’m sure he is supportive of the UN ‘s foundational antisemitism.

    • YOU ARE MAKING HERE AN ACCUSATION WITH NO REAL FOUNDATIONS.
      BUT THIS IS PROBABLY THE WAY YOU LIVE.
      NETANYAHU BLEW IT WITH OBAMA AND BIBI CAN ONLY BLAME
      HIMSELF.
      ANTISEMITISM ALWAYS WAS THERE AND WILL STILL BE THERE
      THE DAY WE DIE.
