U.S. ‘Outraged’ Over UN Report Claiming Israel Is ‘Apartheid Regime’

This is one of many reason for the United States to defund and evict the United Nations.

Israel needs to never give up one inch of land to create a Palestinian state.

If the Palestinians want a  state them need to ask their Ara brothers for the land for a state.

TEL AVIV – The U.S. slammed the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) over a new report accusing Israel of being an “apartheid regime” that “dominates the Palestinian people as a whole.”

“That such anti-Israel propaganda would come from a body whose membership nearly universally does not recognize Israel is unsurprising,” U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley said in a statement. “That it was drafted by Richard Falk, a man who has repeatedly made biased and deeply offensive comments about Israel and espoused ridiculous conspiracy theories, including about the 9/11 terrorist attacks, is equally unsurprising.”

“The United Nations Secretariat was right to distance itself from this report, but it must go further and withdraw the report altogether,” Haley added. “The United States stands with our ally Israel and will continue to oppose biased and anti-Israel actions across the UN system and around the world.”

Israeli Envoy to the UN Danny Danon said, “The attempt to smear and falsely label the only true democracy in the Middle East by creating a false analogy is despicable and constitutes a blatant lie.”

Spokesman for the Israeli Foreign Ministry Emmanuel Nahshon said the ESCWA report was akin to Nazi propaganda.

“Friendly advice — don’t read it without anti-nausea pills,” he tweeted, adding that it was a “Der Stürmer”-like report, referring to the Nazi propaganda publication.

UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said that the publication of the report was done without consultation with the UN Secretariat.

“The report as it stands does not reflect the views of the secretary-general (Antonio Guterres),” Dujarric said.

Former Israeli ambassador to the UN Dan Gillerman said in a conference call in which Breitbart Jerusalem participated that the report was “shameful” but not surprising from the international body, which he described as a “citadel of hypocrisy.”

“I’m shocked but not surprised the UN,” Gillerman said. “As someone who spent six years there, I was shocked time and time again by the bias, by the prejudice and indeed, by the triple standards of the UN.”

The UN, Gillerman continued, has one standard for democracies, one for totalitarian states and a third standard that is “devoted wholly and solely for Israel.”

Gillerman lambasted the notion of apartheid, saying Arabs have far more freedoms in Israel than even Arab states.

“Israel is the only country where an Arab – a Palestinian – can appeal to the Supreme Court against the Israeli government and get an injunction against his own government. Ask them to do that in Damascus or Libya, they wouldn’t dare, they wouldn’t have the ability or the guts, they would be executed or imprisoned,” he said.

The ESCWA is headquartered in Beirut, Lebanon and is comprised of 18 member states from the Middle East and North Africa.

In February, Haley voiced her concerns at the UN about the double standards and bias the international body harbors toward Israel.

“I am here to underscore the ironclad support of the United States for Israel,” Haley told reporters following her first meeting with the Security Council on Middle East issues. “I’m here to emphasize the United States is determined to stand up to the UN’s anti-Israel bias. We will never repeat the terrible mistake of Resolution 2334 and allow one-sided Security Council resolutions to condemn Israel. Instead, we will push for action on the real threats we face in the Middle East.”

How can this be possible Israeli doctors help this child?

According to the followers of the Pedophile Mohammed the Israelis are evil oppressors.

The followers of the Pedophile Mohammed are the evil oppressors not the Israelis.

TEL AVIV – Israeli doctors have successfully treated a seven-year-old boy from Ethiopia whose head and face were mutilated by a wild spotted hyena to the point of being “unrecognizable,” the Jerusalem Post reported.

The boy was flown to Israel as part of a humanitarian mission and treated at the Western Galilee Medical Center in Nahariya. According to his medical team, he has recovered and both the cosmetic and functional outcome are “acceptable.”

Having only just made it out alive after the mauling, the boy underwent treatment in the hospital’s plastic surgery, otolaryngology, ophthalmology and maxillofacial departments, the report said.

The latest issue of the Israel Medical Association Journal published a report on the case.

“His face was severely mutilated and he was hospitalized at the Addis Ababa Medical Center for several months. As a unique humanitarian act, this child was transferred to the plastic surgery department at Galilee Medical Center with the aid of the Israeli embassy, a Jewish organization in the U.S., a local Ethiopian church and an Ethiopian Muslim organization,” the medical journal said.

By the time he arrived at the Israeli hospital, the seven-year-old needed to have the dead skin on his face debrided, the Post said. His eardrum was treated and saved and his jaw was reconstructed using bone from his rib. He lost the use of his right eye.

In 2013, Israeli diplomats led a campaign to raise $40,000 to fly another Ethiopian boy attacked by a hyena to Israel for treatment at the same hospital. The animal had attacked the boy’s village, killing five people and wounding 15 more.

FLASHBACK – Reports: Obama’s 2008 Campaign Reps Talked with Iran, Hamas

This took place on the watch of Bathhouse Barry so the lamestream media turned a blind eye to it

Amid the controversy surrounding White House National Security Adviser Michael Flynn’s alleged conversations with Russia, it may be instrumental to recall that representatives for Barack Obama’s 2008 presidential campaign were accused of meeting with Hamas and Iran.

Depending on what took place, the alleged contacts with Iran may have violated the Logan Act, which bars citizens from negotiating with foreign governments in dispute with the United States. It may be questionable whether Hamas, which rules the Gaza Strip, legally qualifies as a foreign government.

In 2008, Robert Malley stepped down as an informal foreign policy adviser to Obama’s campaign when it was revealed that he met with Hamas members.

Malley admitted to the meetings, but he claimed he met with the terrorists as part of his private job.

“I have never hidden the fact that I had meetings with Hamas,” Malley wrote in an open letter published in the New York Times. “I do this as part of my job as Middle East program director at the International Crisis Group.”

He said he distanced himself from Obama’s campaign because the Hamas meetings were “becoming a distraction to me and to Senator Obama’s campaign, and to avoid any misperception — misrepresentation being the more accurate word — about the candidate’s position regarding the Islamist movement.”

Malley later joined the Obama administration. In 2015, he was appointed to lead the Middle East desk of the National Security Council.

He was also named Obama’s special adviser regarding the Islamic State.

Meanwhile, in August 2014, Michael Ledeen, a former consultant to the National Security Council and U.S. Defense Department, penned a column at PJ Media stating Obama opened a back-channel to Iran during the 2008 presidential campaign. Ledeen said the back channel went through retired Ambassador William G. Miller, who also led the 1979 negotiating mission during the Iran hostage crisis. Ladeen wrote that Miller confirmed his back-channel involvement to him.

Ledeen wrote:

The actual strategy is detente first, and then a full alliance with Iran throughout the Middle East and North Africa. It has been on display since before the beginning of the Obama administration. During his first presidential campaign in 2008, Mr. Obama used a secret back channel to Tehran to assure the mullahs that he was a friend of the Islamic Republic, and that they would be very happy with his policies. The secret channel was Ambassador William G. Miller, who served in Iran during the shah’s rule, as chief of staff for the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence, and as ambassador to Ukraine. Ambassador Miller has confirmed to me his conversations with Iranian leaders during the 2008 campaign.

The Logan Act states:

Any citizen of the United States, wherever he may be, who, without authority of the United States, directly or indirectly commences or carries on any correspondence or intercourse with any foreign government or any officer or agent thereof, with intent to influence the measures or conduct of any foreign government or of any officer or agent thereof, in relation to any disputes or controversies with the United States, or to defeat the measures of the United States, shall be fined under this title or imprisoned not more than three years, or both.
