“Instead of condemning Palestinians for terror, incitement, and lies, the international continues to give them concessions and rewards,” Danon told Ynet. He added that the resolutions are to be brought to a vote without mentioning the 174 terror attacks committed by Palestinians in recent weeks.
In a move dubbed “surreal” by a leading UN watchdog, and as a campaign of daily Palestinian terrorist attacks continues to target Israelis, the United Nations General Assembly on Tuesday adopted six resolutions – all of which bar none condemned Israel.
Not a single mention was made of the Palestinian attacks, which have left 22 Israelis dead and hundreds wounded, nor did any other countries – even serial human rights violators such as Saudi Arabia, Iran, Russia and others – receive any of the General Assembly’s attention. More disturbingly still, five of the the UNGA resolutions were sponsored by the Palestinian Authority, while the sixth was sponsored by none other than Bashar al-Assad’s regime in Syria.
“Surreal barely captures the scene: the world is under assault by terrorists killing in the name of Islam and martyrhood — as Palestinians did this week while stabbing Israeli Jews — and the UN’s response is to reflexively condemn Israel in six separate resolutions, all of which are one-sided,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, in response to the votes.
One resolution condemned the Jewish state for retaining the Golan Heights, demanding Israel hand it over to the Syrian regime.
The resolution’s adoption – by 105 votes to 6, with 56 abstentions – elicited warm words of praise from Syria’s UN Ambassador Bashar Jaafari, who expressed his “heartfelt appreciation and gratitude” to the UN for its Golan resolution, and without any sense of irony accused Israel of “occupation killing policies,” “expansion,” “racism,” and “aggression.”
Another vote – which passed 153 to 7 – claimed that Israel has “no right” to “impose” its sovereignty over “the Holy City of Jerusalem.”
“It’s astonishing,” said Neuer. “At a time when the Syrian regime is massacring its own people, how can the UN call for more people to be subject to Assad’s rule? The timing is morally galling and logically absurd.”
“What is also outrageous is that these resolutions claim to care about Palestinians, yet the UN proves itself oblivious to the hundreds of Palestinians who continue to be slaughtered, maimed and expelled by Assad’s forces,” he continued.
Neuer accused the General Assembly of being hijacked by an “automatic majority” of fiercely anti-Israel dictatorships.
“The farce at the General Assembly underscores a simple fact: the UN’s automatic majority has no interest in truly helping Palestinians, nor in protecting anyone’s human rights; the goal of these ritual, one-sided condemnations remains the scapegoating of Israel,” he stated.
“The U.N.’s disproportionate assault against the Jewish state undermines the institutional credibility of what is supposed to be an impartial 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.”

With one mind they plot together; they form an alliance against you—the tents of Edom and the Ishmaelites, of Moab and the Hagrites, Byblos, Ammon and Amalek, Philistia, with the people of Tyre.
