Israel's UN Ambassador: "We Don't Have a Partner" for Peace

(Jerusalem Post) Zvika Klein - Israeli Ambassador to the UN Gilad Erdan said in an interview, "At the UN, we can see very clearly that we don't have a partner [for peace]. The Palestinians just want to bring an end to the idea of the Jewish state through delegitimization....In a situation where there is a complete refusal to recognize us, and there is pure antisemitism among these leaders, decisions are promoted in UNESCO to erase the aspect of Jewish history from places like Tel Jericho [an archaeological site with Jewish roots]." "It's not just a security issue that Hamas controls Gaza. It's the fact that the PA behaves like an enemy authority. I hope that the American administration will also internalize this and think twice about who it pressures incorrectly and who it should be pressuring." Last year the Palestinians "took advantage of the General Assembly to pass a decision taking the [Israeli-Palestinian] conflict to the International Criminal Court (ICC) in The Hague....We asked states to urge the tribunal not to intervene. But if they move ahead anyway, their decisions will eliminate any chance that the next Palestinian leader will be able to be more conciliatory than what the court in The Hague [has] decided."
