U.N. issues 22 resolutions against Israel, 4 for all other countries combined

Anti-Semitic much?

GENEVA, December 18 – The U.N. General Assembly today adopted nine resolutions on Palestinian rights and the Golan, sharply criticizing Israel yet making no mention of Sunday’s massacre of Palestinians by Syrian warplanes firing missiles into a mosque in a Palestinian refugee camp near Damascus. Nor did the texts mention the tens of thousands of Palestinians who continue to flee the camp.

By the end of this week, the current 2012 UNGA session will have adopted 22 country-specific resolutions on Israel – and only four on the rest of the world combined, one each for Syria, Iran, North Korea and Burma, noted UN Watch.

Today’s resolutions criticized Israel for “the continuing systematic violation of the human rights of the Palestinian people,” and focused on “the extremely difficult socioeconomic conditions being faced by the Palestine refugees in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem.”

One resolution condemned Israel for holding on to the Golan Heights, demanding Israel hand the land and its people to Syria.

“It’s astonishing,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch. “At a time when the Syrian regime is massacring its own people, how can the U.N. call for more people to be subject to Assad’s rule? The timing of today’s text is morally galling and logically absurd.”

“What is also outrageous is that these resolutions claim to care about Palestinians, yet the U.N. proves itself completely oblivious to the actual suffering on the ground, happening right now: Palestinians slaughtered, maimed and expelled by Assad’s forces.”

“Today’s farce at the General Assembly underscores a simple fact: the U.N.’s automatic majority has no interest in truly helping Palestinians, nor in protecting anyone’s human rights; the goal of these ritual, one-sided condemnations remains the scapegoating of Israel,” said Neuer.

    Par for the course. The un is made up of socialists,despots,dictators,and muslims. Look @ the hundreds of millions the fakestinians have received. Where has it gone?to foriegn bank accounts and to arms dealers. I would cut all ties to the un and cut off every cent they receive.they are corrupt organization.

    Last night, I watched a few episodes of Winds of War. The bombing and murder of so many innocent people on all sides…the destruction and violence all across Europe. The horrible decisions made by the leaders in Europe. I watched and the thought came to me that the Europeans that criticize Israel have a lot of NERVE. Here is a group of people who fought among themselves for thousands of years, oppressed others, and they criticize Israel which has a better history of conflict resolution and morals than they ever had in the past. Those who oppose Israel are either ignorant of the accurate facts or evil.

    But the UN is a guiding light for the world! The fact that there are so many resolutions only proves that Israel is evil! The fact that you point out this is anti-semitic is the reason why people do these things! See, you’re just bringing it upon yourself!

    Joking aside, it’s sad, but I hear this kind of reasoning all the time from people outside Israel, even sometimes Jews now. It’s amazing in our so-called “civilized” society that this kind of things goes on still, and in a forum such as the UN.

    Sometimes I wonder if it would be better to just dissolve the whole thing and throw in the towel. There’s in inherent fallacy to anything decided by a majority or any sort of similar system — the majority is often wrong or uses its power in negative ways against the minority.
