The United Nations condemned the Jewish state in six anti-Israel resolutions passed in one day.
With Chanukah just around the corner, the United Nations on Friday launched its latest attack on Israel as part of its ongoing attempt to marginalize and delegitimize the Jewish state.
The international body passed six anti-Israel resolutions in just one day, attacking everything from the Jewish people’s role in ensuring religious freedom in Jerusalem to Israel’s right to control territory it captured in the Golan Heights after Syria attacked the Jewish state in 1967.
With regard to the Jerusalem motion, the resolution denies the fact that under Israeli administration of the city, members of all faiths have access to holy sites. Conversely, under Jordanian rule prior to 1967, Jews faced severe discrimination with regard to access to holy sites, with a number of these sites destroyed.
The other resolutions passed on Friday were designed to promote pro-Palestinian bias in initiatives addressing the Arab-Israeli conflict.
One of the committees that presented the resolutions, the “Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People,” enlisted CNN contributor and Temple University professor Marc Lamont Hill to address the UN last Wednesday.
He took the opportunity to invoke the phrase “Free Palestine From the River to the Sea,” a slogan that explicitly refers to the elimination of the Jewish state in the Land of Israel.
CNN promptly fired Hill the next day, notwithstanding his claims that he was not advocating the destruction of Israel with the well-known slogan.
Among the nations that either voted against the resolutions or abstained were the United States, Australia, Guatemala, and Hungary.
