ADL urged the 57 countries of the Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe to take action and confront rising anti-Semitism on the continent. The event marked the 10-year anniversary of the OSCE’s landmark 2004 Berlin Conference Against Anti-Semitism, where governments first publicly rejected anti-Semitism that is cloaked in and legitimized by animus toward the Jewish State of Israel.
The United Nations has long been a source of mixed feelings for the Jewish community. While the UN played a pivotal role in the creation of the State of Israel, the international body has a continuing history of a one-sided, hostile approach to Israel.
Your consistent support for enhancing Israel's role at the UN, both at Security Council and in other forums, is a demonstration of your and President Obama's unwavering commitment to Israel and to ensuring the Jewish State's fair treatment in the international arena.
