Israel’s UN Envoy Slams General Assembly Head for Wearing PLO Nazi Flag Scarf
The U.N. again blatantly displayed that it is biased against the Israel and in favor of the Arab Muslims terrorists who openly call for genocide of the Jewish people.
Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations (UN) Danny Danon slammed UN General Assembly President Peter Thomson for wearing a [so-called] “Palestinian” flag scarf.
Thomson wore the scarf on Tuesday at a meeting of the UN’s Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People (CEIRPP) that marked International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People. The special session, initiated by the Palestinian UN delegation, came on the anniversary of the UN Partition Plan of November 29, 1947, which led to the creation of the State of Israel.
“It’s unacceptable for the president of the UN General Assembly, whose position is a symbol of neutrality and stateliness, to wrap himself in a Palestinian flag and participate in an event the sole purpose of which is to attack and besmirch the state of Israel,” Danon said. “This is living, unequivocal proof of the bias against Israel and the slander spread about us at the UN.”
In his address to the UN General Assembly, Danon questioned whether the Palestinians really want statehood and argued that the Palestinians have rejected every Israeli offer for peace.
“Do the Palestinians even want a state? History tells us that the answer is no. If the Palestinians really wanted peace, we could have had peace decades ago. The Palestinians reject every Israeli offer and every plan and respond with waves of violence and terror,” he said.
During his speech, Danon held up the front page of The New York Times from Nov. 30, 1947, the day after the Partition Plan vote, with headlines that read “Assembly Votes Palestine Partition” and “Arabs Walk Out…Disavow Any Partition Role.”
Danon added that the Palestinian Authority (PA) “pays lip-service to these [peace] initiatives because it pays well. The real goal of the PA is to continue to exist as a corrupt entity living off the goodwill of the international community without the responsibilities of governing. And they know the only way to do so is to continue the conflict.”
The General Assembly also adopted six resolutions critical of Israel Tuesday. The resolutions included measures ignoring Jewish ties to holy sites in Jerusalem, allocating resources to help promote the Palestinian narrative, and calling on Israel to withdraw from the “occupied territories.”
