Secretary-general: UN has anti-Israel bias

UN Sec. Gen. Ban Ki-MoonUnited Nations (UN) Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon admitted on Friday that the number of resolutions made by his organization have “disproportionate[ly]” gone against Israel.

The outgoing leader of the UN also conceded that the anti-Israeli bias exuded by his colleagues has detrimentally affected the way his organization handles international affairs.

“[The UN’s anti-Israel sentiment has] foiled the ability of the UN to fulfill its role effectively," Ki-moon expressed. 

Too little, too late?

As Ki-moon prepares to leave his position next month as the organization’s head, he is finally acknowledging that Israel has consistently been given the short end of the stick when the global peacekeepers involve themselves in Israel’s struggles with its enemies in the Middle East – including the Islamic regimes of Syria, the Palestinians and Iran.

"Over the last decade, I have argued that we cannot have a bias against Israel at the UN," the global leader expressed to the UN Security Council. "Decades of political maneuvering have created a disproportionate number of resolutions, reports and committees against Israel." 

Ki-moon then addressed the longstanding Israeli-Palestinian conflict and how the UN’s intervention has actually worked to exacerbate the problem by siding with the terrorist-led group of Muslims living in Israel’s West Bank and Gaza Strip.

"In many cases, instead of helping the Palestinian issue, this reality has foiled the ability of the UN to fulfill its role effectively," the apologetic world leader insisted.

More than unfair …

The nation of Israel fully agreed with Ki-moon, as Danny Danon – who serves as Israel’s ambassador to the UN – expressed.

 "[The secretary-general] had admitted the clear truth," Danon asserted.

The chief diplomat for Israel then pointed out that the Jewish State has been subjected to more anti-Israeli policies enforced by the UN in recent years than ever before.

“[The UN's hypocrisy toward Israel has] broken records over the past decade," Danon continued.

Next, the Israeli leader stressed the UN’s abysmal 10-year track record when it comes to mediating between the Holy Land and one of its jihadist-harboring rivals to the east.

"During this time, the UN passed 223 resolutions condemning Israel, while only eight resolutions [were made] condemning the Syrian regime – as it has massacred its citizens over the past six years,” Danon pointed out. “This is absurd.”

After enduring deplorable treatment under Ki-moon’s UN, Danon is excited to welcome a new secretary-general, who he hopes will deal justly with Israel and its hostile jihadist neighbors in the region of the Middle East – often dubbed the Powder Keg for its violent enduring conflicts.

"With a new secretary-general set to take office next month, we look forward to the possibility of a new era of fairness at the UN," the Jewish ambassador expressed.

Excuses for abuses?

Ki-moon then appeared to make excuses for the anti-Semitic sentiments and scrutiny that Israel has endured under his leadership – noting that the sole democracy in the Middle East might be wise to prepare for continued biased treatment in the near future.

"Israel needs to understand the reality that a democratic state which is run by the rule of the law, which continues to militarily occupy the Palestinian people, will still generate criticism and calls to hold her accountable," the outgoing global leader warned.

The UN’s continued politically correct handling of the Palestinians – despite the globally known fact that they are run by the Islamic terrorist group, Hamas – has shown no indication of changing of late.

“[Ki-moon’s apologetic remarks] come after the UN recently passed a series of resolutions during its annual ‘International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People’ – even as Palestinians stepped up violent attacks against Israeli civilians and security officers,” CBN News reported. “Thirty-three Israelis and two foreign visitors have been killed in Palestinian stabbings, shootings and car rammings since October of last year.”

But not being one to back down when it comes to protecting its citizens, Israel Defense Forces (IDF) has been swift to retaliate with extreme force when its national security is put at risk.

“More than 230 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli security forces in the period,” the Christian media outlet detailed. “Israel says that 156 Palestinians were carrying out or attempting attacks, while others were killed during protests.”

In January – the same month that the United States’ pro-Palestinian President Barack Obama leaves office to give way to pro-Israeli President-elect Donald Trump – Ki-moon is slated to be replaced by former Portugal Prime Minister Antonio Guterres.
