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.
ADL strongly criticized a newly released U.N. Human Rights Council fact-finding report on the impact of Israeli settlements on the Palestinians, stating that the purpose of the report was “illegitimate in its conception,” and “another clear example of the HRC’s institutionalized extreme anti-Israeli bias.”
Each year on November 29th at the United Nations, the Palestinians enlist the entire General Assembly in what has become a ritual of Palestinian solidarity. November 29, 2012 may prove to be exceptionally challenging for Israel at the UN.
