Assessment: North Korea, Iran, Myanmar, and Russia, for its activity in Crimea, are the only other countries to be officially condemned by the UN over the past year. Meanwhile, a draft resolution against the Syrian regime for its crimes against humanity was deferred. “The UN’s assault on Israel with a torrent of one-sided resolutions is surreal,” says Hillel Neuer, executive director of NGO UN Watch …

The United Nations General Assembly concluded its activities for 2021 over the weekend, and this year, too, Israel was the target of a cascade of condemnations and resolutions against it, well beyond and completely disproportionate to other countries.

The two latest condemnations were issued on Friday due to the automatic anti-Israel majority in the UN. In one resolution, pertaining to an event in 2006, UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres expressed “concern that Israel did not acknowledge its responsibility for the oil spill” off the Lebanese coast and failed to clarify how it intends to compensate the Lebanese government for it.

Why do the nations rage, And the people plot a vain thing? The kings of the earth set themselves, And the rulers take counsel together, Against the Lord and against His Anointed …” Psalm 2:2-3

The second resolution condemned Israel for “exploiting the natural resources of the Palestinians, and on the Golan Heights.” It should be noted that the text makes no mention of Hamas’ commandeering of international aid money to fund the construction of terror tunnels rather than to rebuild destroyed infrastructure; environmental pollution caused by Palestinian tire burning; destruction of flora and fauna with arson balloons and kites; and refusal to develop their own water resources and deal with their own sewage as required by the Oslo Accords.

In total, the General Assembly passed 14 anti-Israel resolutions in 2021, while the other 194 countries in the world were hit with a grand total of four resolutions of condemnation – against North Korea, Iran, Myanmar, and Russian activity in Crimea. Meanwhile, a draft resolution against the Syrian regime highlighting its crimes against humanity was deferred.
