Top 10 Most Insane U.N. Anti-Israel Actions of 2017

10. The U.N.’s Beirut-based agency of 18 Arab states published a report accusing Israel of “Apartheid.”

In response, UN Watch executive director Hillel Neuer took the floor to ask Algeria, Iraq, Syria, Egypt, Libya, Lebanon, Yemen, and the others, a simple question: “Where are your Jews?”  For once, the room was silenced. UN Watch’s speech went viral on the Internet, with the video viewed 5 million times worldwide.

    SEPARATION BARRIER RULED ILLEGAL

    Zionism is a system of ethnoreligious supremacy that grants Jewish citizens rights not granted to other citizens, that relegates Palestinians and those of other racial and ethnic backgrounds to second-class citizen status.

    The legal meaning of apartheid as outlined by the International Convention on the Suppression and Punishment of the Crime of Apartheid. The UN General Assembly adopted the convention in 1973. According to Article II of that convention, the term applies to acts “committed for the purpose of establishing and maintaining domination by one racial group of persons over any other racial group of persons and systematically oppressing them.” Denying those others the right to life and liberty, subjecting them to arbitrary arrest, expropriating their property, depriving them of the right to leave and return to their country or the right to freedom of movement and of residence, creating separate reserves and ghettos for the members of different racial groups, preventing mixed marriages — these are all examples of the crime of apartheid specifically mentioned in the convention. ISRAEL ENGAGES IN ALL OF THESE ACTIONS !!!

    United Nations General Assembly Resolution 3379, adopted on November 10, 1975 “determined that Zionism is a form of racism and racial discrimination”.
    .
    Zionism is an inherently racist ideology; it always has been, from its very origins, and it always will be.

    Discriminatory Laws Database (DLD) is an online resource comprising a list of over 65 Israeli laws that discriminate directly or indirectly against Palestinian citizens in Israel and/or Palestinian residents of the Occupied Palestinian Territory (OPT) on the basis of their national belonging.

    • David stop spamming my blog, no one not even other Arabs give a damn about the Palestinians, they are a made up scam.

  • David Adams

    How can Israel be democratic when it holds 4.5 million Palestinians under a seemingly
    permanent military occupation without voting rights? All people living under the control of the Israeli government, which in effect includes people in the West Bank, East Jerusalem, Gaza and the Golan Heights, should have rights to full equality and opportunity to vote for the government which ultimately decides their fate.

    Even within Israel ‘proper,’ Israel’s democracy is undermined by the discrimination and emphasis on being a Jewish state rather than a state of all its citizens. There are over 60 laws that, in intention and in effect, discriminate against non-Jews, including barring state funding from institutions that talk about the nakba, the violence against and displacement of Palestinians that began in 1948 with the creation of the state, and the law of return which grants special privileges of citizenship to Jews living around the world and excludes Palestinians from returning to their homes.The far-right government in Israel is becoming increasingly fascist, for example: passing laws that require loyalty litmus tests, undermining judicial authority,
    approving indefinite detention of migrants.

    WHY ARE YOU
    SINGLING OUT ISRAEL ?

    Actually, it is the United States who is singling out Israel, with $3.8 billion dollars in military aid yearly, that’s over $10 million dollars every single day (more cumulative aid than any other country since WWII) and protecting it from diplomatic
    censure in international forums such as the UN and the ICC. As Americans, you have a special
    responsibility to ensure that your tax dollars stop being used to commit war crimes. This is not about singling out Israel, it’s about holding Israel to the same standard as all countries to comply with international law and leveraging the particular responsibility and influence that you have as American taxpayers to demand change in Israel.

    It’s seems we have a new guest on this forum who seems to like venting his anti-Israel vitriol.
    David – where’s your post about the illegal Turkish occupation of Northern Cyprus?
    Here’s some facts that David conveniently overlooks:
    More Jews were ethnically cleansed from Arab lands than there were Palestinian Arabs in 1948 that you allege were ethnically cleansed.
    There is no “Apartheid” in Israel – Arabs enjoy full rights (one even sits on the Israeli Supreme Court) + there are several Arabs that sit in the Israeli parliament.
    David just because you type your nonsense in upper case letters doesn’t make it truthful.
    David go peddle your nonsense elsewhere (and I am sure I speak for the majority on this forum).
