U.S. Condemns UN Resolutions Against Israel

(U.S. Mission to the UN) Cherith Norman Chalet, Acting U.S. Deputy Representative to the UN, told the General Assembly on Friday: "The United States continues to oppose the annual submission of more than a dozen resolutions biased against Israel. This one-sided approach...fails to create the kind of positive international environment critical to achieving peace." "It is deplorable that the United Nations - an institution founded upon the idea that all nations should be treated equally - should be so often used by member states to treat one state in particular, Israel, unequally." "We see resolutions that are quick to condemn all manner of Israeli actions, but say nothing or almost nothing about terrorist attacks against innocent civilians. This is particularly apparent when we see Israel blamed for the situation in Gaza, while none of these resolutions even mentions the word 'Hamas,' or any armed groups in Gaza. Just this week, we saw barrages of rockets on Israeli civilians fired from Palestinian Islamic Jihad in Gaza. It is shameful that the UN cannot condemn these acts of terror in any of the resolutions." "One-sided resolutions do not help advance peace. The cause of peace will be served when the bias of the United Nations against Israel ends."
