United Nations Run by Dictators, Says Israel’s Outgoing Ambassador Prosor
Israel’s outgoing ambassador to the United Nations derided the international body in an interview on Sunday saying the organization was run by dictators.
Speaking to Israel’s Channel 2, Ambassador Ron Prosor, who has just completed four years of service at the UN, described the UN as a “hypocritical organization that is controlled by the hands of dictators, tyrants and non-democratic nations.”
Prosor also called the UN’s effectiveness into question, painting it as toothless. “Is the UN taking a leadership role in the Iranian matter?” he asked rhetorically. “Is the UN really providing a solution to what is happening in Syria? There is a genocide going on there. The UN, really, when it comes to the central conflicts in the world today, is not at the forefront of the solutions to these conflicts, and this springs forth from its composition.”
The ambassador, who previously served as Israel’s representative to the United Kingdom and Director-General of Israel’s Foreign Ministry, officially vacated his post on August 15. He will be replaced by Danny Danon, a former Member of Knesset for the Likud Party, Deputy Minister of Defense, and Minister of Science, Technology and Space.
