Eretz Israel is our unforgettable historic homeland...The Jews who will it shall achieve their State...And whatever we attempt there for our own benefit will redound mightily and beneficially to the good of all mankind. (Theodor Herzl, DerJudenstaat, 1896)

We offer peace and amity to all the neighbouring states and their peoples, and invite them to cooperate with the independent Jewish nation for the common good of all. The State of Israel is ready to contribute its full share to the peaceful progress and development of the Middle East.
(From Proclamation of the State of Israel, 5 Iyar 5708; 14 May 1948)

With a liberal democratic political system operating under the rule of law, a flourishing market economy producing technological innovation to the benefit of the wider world, and a population as educated and cultured as anywhere in Europe or North America, Israel is a normal Western country with a right to be treated as such in the community of nations.... For the global jihad, Israel may be the first objective. But it will not be the last. (Friends of Israel Initiative)

"The Problems of the Middle East are Numerous, and Yet ..."

"...we spend a vastly disproportionate amount of time on one of them," Nikki Haley tells the UN Security Council in her final, superb address to it regarding Israel and the Palestinian Arabs and prospects for a peace in which both sides prosper.

    “It is virtually impossible to get the United Nations
    to condemn any Arab terrorist group or state for
    any attack on Israel or Jewish institutions.

    Yet there is an eagerness to condemn Israel,
    whether Israel is right or wrong.”

    The United Nations vs. Israel by Anne Bayefsky

    The United Nations is obsessed with one country’s human

    Eradicating the Right to Self-Defense by Anne Bayefsky

    Learn how the International Court of Justice
    (the UN's legal branch) has decreed new rules
    which redefine the right of self-defense, in a
    way which is custom-tailored to make it illegal
    for Israel to defend itself against radical Islamic terrorists.

  3. UN Leader Ban Ki-moon, in Departing Speech,
    Admits Anti-Israel Bias at World Body
    posted on 2016 December 16 by JNS.org


    www.jns.org/news-briefs/2016/12/16/un-leader-ban-ki-moon-in-departing-speech-admits-anti-israel-bias-at-world-body#

    (JNS.org) United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who is stepping down at the end of the year, acknowledged in a departing speech that there is “disproportionate” bias against Israel at the world body.

    "We must never accept bias against Israel within U.N. bodies,” Ban said Friday.

    Ban went on to admit that the U.N. has a "disproportionate volume of resolutions, reports and conferences criticizing Israel,” and that "in many cases, rather than helping the Palestinian cause, this reality has hampered the ability of the U.N. to fulfill its role effectively."

    Israeli Ambassador to the U.N. Danny Danon commended Ban’s statement and noted the disproportionate number of anti-Israel resolutions passed at the U.N. in recent years.

    "The secretary-general admitted the clear truth—the U.N.’s hypocrisy towards Israel has broken records over the past decade. During this time the U.N. passed 223 resolutions condemning Israel while only eight resolutions condemning the Syrian regime as it has massacred its citizens over the past six years. This is absurd," said Danon.

    At the same time, Ban urged Israeli lawmakers to reconsider the controversial outpost bill, which would legalize Israeli settlements on private Palestinian land.

    "I strongly urge legislators to reconsider advancing this bill, which will have negative legal consequences for Israel and substantially diminish the chances for Arab-Israeli peace," Ban said.

    ===================================
    Does the United Nations (U.N.) discriminate against Israel?

    “Israel is the ONLY U.N. state not permitted to be a full member of any of the U.N.’s five regional groups.

    Throughout the Human Rights Council sessions, these groups hold key planning meetings in which countries negotiate and share important information behind closed doors.

    Even the Palestinian Authority, though not a state, is permitted into the Asian regional group.”

  4. “Israel is the Middle East’s only democracy and shows much greater respect for human rights and due process than its neighbors, yet Israel is singled out time and time again by the United Nations for criticism, including by those who are themselves serious human rights abusers.”

  5. "The United Nations is obsessed with one country’s human
    rights record, and it’s not North Korea, Iran or Syria"
    quite right - why would it be "obsessed" withthose states ? there are international sanctions on those states whereas there are none on Israel, in fact it ets massive amount of Western support I guess the point of the article is to say that Israel should be sanctionned and ostracised like Iran and North Korea ???
