JNS.org In a rare admission, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon said on Friday that there is U.N. bias against Israel.

Speaking to university students at the U.N. Headquarters in Jerusalem, Ban stated that Israel, as a U.N. member, should get the same treatment as other nations. “Unfortunately, because of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Israel has been weighed down by criticism and suffered from bias and sometimes even discrimination,” he said.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu met with Ban on Friday. The two discussed regional concerns, and Netanyahu raised the issue of U.N.-funded schools in the West Bank and Gaza Strip that promote incitement against Jews and Israel. Netanyahu said that the root of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict is the Palestinian “refusal to recognize the Jewish state in any boundary.”

Historically, official U.N. statements and resolutions on the Israeli-Palestinian conflict have frequently criticized Israel, rather than taking the approach of Ban’s comments on Friday.

    HERE ARE EXAMPLE AFTER EXAMPLE OF THE BIAS AND HOW MOST OF YOU ARE TAKING ADVANTAGE OF THE TIMES TO SHOW OFF YOUR HATRED. Every man woman and child on earth deserves to live in peace, including palestinians. Why are the signs saying “KILL ALL JEWS” instead of “KILL ALL ISRAELIS”???

    If you ask me, why doesn’t a single person mention that many, if not most of those arab nations make it illegal to even enter if you are a jew. The ones who allow them make them second class citizens and tax them to worship. Executions to any blamed for trying to convert someone. That’s really fair. What does that have to do with ISRAEL? I am american jew, why can’t I go to Saudi Arabia or the other arab countries where we are second class citizens but that’s just fine right, treat jews as animals and muslims as human. What do us non israeli jews have to do with the gaza conflict? NOT A DAMN THING.

    ISIS in Syria and IRAQ have committed far more atrocities than anything israel has done in the last 2 weeks. IDF does not slowly saw the heads off of live people and put them on spikes for all to see. Maybe they should start putting hamas heads all around the wall. (Obviously that’s sarcasm, I want peace. Egypt and Israel as well as JOrdan need to immediately let the elderly and children into their countries into safe havens. That is everythig humanly possible to stop the innocent death.

    Why does no one get mad at hamas for making IDF shell UN Schools and Camps by attacking IDF troops next to these facilities knowing damn well they won’t just sit there and take mortar fire, anti tank rockets, and small arms. You expect them to not fire back in defense. Hamas doesn’t have to egg them on next to these places meant for safety but obviously they don’t care. Remember way back, the Iranian muslim president Ahmadinajad said to get rid of Israel would be worth 100 muslims for each jew or something along those lines. Jews look at life as precious unlike these extremists who think it’s okay to sacrifice their children for their cause or strap a bomb on and walk onto a bus full of civilians during times of calm (I didn’t say peace cause that’s never happened yet), aagain thanks to Yasser for denying the 2 state solution wwhich would work today if Hamas was gone and Fatah controlled Gaza (which isn’t a country anyway)

    So why the double standard. Why do you all not care that the sunnni are trying to exterminate all shia as they view them as no better than jews and christians, just infidels not following the correct prophet. You don’t see orthodox jews killing reformed ones because of their differences. They just don’t recognize them and carry on, they don’t torure and kill them because of that. Who in the middle east tortures and kills people of the same religion, different sect? The answer is quite obvious to me.

    CORRECTION: Mr Sec’y Gen’l: The ‘Third World’ controlled United Nations, a huge entity, is extremely ANTI ISRAEL because it is extremely ANTI SEMITIC. In over half of a century, the only stand the very expensie piece of Real Estate on Manhatten’s Upper Eastside has taken consistently has been to condemn and ISOLATE, MARGINALIZE and SCAPEGOAT the JEWISH Homeland repeatedly. It ignores the rapes, murders and genocide perpetuated by the nations inhabited by the world’s 1.6 BILLION Muslims beause ISRAEL is an easy target for JEW-Haters while the international community remains silent.
