The Top 100 People Positively Influencing Jewish Life, 2019


Mauro Vieira

Brazilian ambassador to the United Nations

Mauro Vieira, the Brazilian ambassador to the United Nations, has affirmed to the international body his country’s support for a two-state, negotiated solution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict. Since the inauguration of Jair Bolsonaro as president earlier this year, Brazil decided to join the United States and Israel in voting against “Item 7” at the UN Human Rights Council -- a welcome reversal, after a years-long pattern of the South American nation voting against Israel at the UN, or abstaining from lending its support. The controversial “Item 7,” which was also voted against by European Union nations and Japan, ensures that the Human Rights Council singles out Israel for discussion at every session. No other country in the world faces a similar review. (Photo: Ministério das Relações Exteriores / CC BY-NC 2.0)
