Official Resigns After U.N. Accidentally Tells the Truth About Israel

A U.N. report published this week accused Israel of imposing an “apartheid regime” of racial discrimination on the Palestinian people. Shortly after its release, the official who approved its publication resigned amid pressure to pull it, and the report has since been withdrawn.

The report, written by the U.N. Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), concluded that Israel [has] established an apartheid regime that dominates the Palestinian people as a whole — a charge Israel vehemently denies.

Israel’s Foreign Ministry spokesman likened the report to Der Sturmer, a Nazi propaganda publication that was strongly anti-Semitic.

It is a unique and beneficial position to be in wherein every legitimate criticism of one’s policies is deemed to be racially or politically motivated. In that sense, Israel wants to be ultimately free of criticism, even when the nation commits serious violations of international law. Unsurprisingly, the U.S. has staunchly come to Israel’s defense.

The United Nations secretariat was right to distance itself from this report, but it must go further and withdraw the report altogether,” the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, said in a statement, as reported by the Independent.

The ESCWA comprises 18 Arab states in Western Asia and has a view of supporting economic and social development in member states, according to its website. The report was prepared at the request of its member states and notes it reflects the views of the authors only. It was also published without any prior consultation with the U.N. secretariat.

Is the report entirely without merit, as the U.S. and Israel would have us believe? According to the report’s abstract, which Anti-Media cited before the publication was pulled:

“A history of war, annexation and expulsions, as well as a series of practices, has left the Palestinian people fragmented into four distinct population groups, three of them (citizens of Israel, residents of East Jerusalem and the populace under occupation in the West Bank and Gaza) living under direct Israeli rule and the remainder, refugees and involuntary exiles, living beyond. This fragmentation, coupled with the application of discrete bodies of law to those groups, lie at the heart of the apartheid regime. They serve to enfeeble opposition to it and to veil its very existence. This report concludes, on the basis of overwhelming evidence, that Israel is guilty of the crime of apartheid, and urges swift action to oppose and end it.”

South Africa, a country whose infamous history of an apartheid regime shows its people are adept enough to recognize apartheid when they see it, has been a staunch backer of the Palestinian movement for years. South Africa’s International Relations Minister, Maite Nkoana-Mashabane, once famously stated the Palestinian struggle is our struggle.”

The U.N. report was authored by Richard Falk, a former U.N. human rights investigator for the Palestinian territories, and Virginia Tilley, a professor of political science at Southern Illinois University.

After its publication, U.N. Under-Secretary General and ESCWA Executive Secretary Rima Khalaf resigned amid pressure from Secretary-General Antonio Guterres to withdraw it, Reuters reports. She stood by the report, adding, “It was expected that Israel and its allies would put enormous pressure on the United Nations secretary-general to renounce the report.”

The report is no longer visible on UNESCWA’s website, but can be found in the Internet archive.

      Don’t worry your mind about that — The Jewish Rabbis hold ISLAM in higher esteem than Jesus “As for
      Christianity, there is a dispute among Halachic authorities, but the
      vast majority consider it idolatry as well. Islam, on the other hand, is
      not considered idolatry.” Read that last bit again: “Islam, on the
      other hand, is not considered idolatry.” The Rabbis like ISLAM and
      despise Christianity.

      Israel has a population of approximately 7.7 million, or a million fewer than the state of New Jersey. It is among the world’s most AFFLUENT nations, with a per capita income similar to that of the European Union.[1] Israel’s unemployment rate of 6.8% is better than America’s 7.3%,[2] and Israel’s net trade, earnings, and payments is ranked 30th in the world while the US sits at a dismal 193rd.[3] http://ifamericansknew.org https://alethonews.wordpress.com/2016/02/23/the-staggering-cost-of-israel-to-americans/

  • Frank

    If any group of peoples is forced to go to extreme lengths to protect themselves from being murdered and annihilated, as the enemies of Israel and the Jewish people seek to achieve, then that is entirely within their right of self-preservation. The fact that Israel pursues/implements policies and actions that exclude or expel their enemies from entering it’s borders should be accepted as their right as a sovereign nation. Before anybody gives too much credence to the UN or it’s “altruistic” intervention, consider which countries are pushing to discredit Israel’s actions and right to self-preservation and -determination.
    I’m not a “Jew lover,” but I do respect and support Israel’s tenacity and determination in thwarting their enemies from murdering them out of religious zealotry and hate.

      If Israel was still remotely within the 1948 border, you might have a point.

      Since Israel has annexed, demolished, and walled off the territory that does not rightfully belong to it – fuck them and anyone who supports their varied and numerous crimes.

      • Frank

        Since my knowledge of the history of this land is very poor, I looked up the border changes. The geographic/national borders of historical Palestine-now Israel have not changed significantly since the early 1940’s, but what has changed is the ownership of lands within that national border/boundary. There has been a progressive change of ownership of land, where the Palestinians have lost land and the Jews have gained land – similar to the change of ownership of the land of North America from the Native Americans to European immigrants and their progeny. This may be a very simple comparison to those more knowledgeable or biased one way or the other. As I see it, in basic terms, the transition of ownership of the lands of Palestine are similar to the transition of ownership of the lands of North America – absent the aspect of religious difference and one-sided intolerance (Palestinian hate of Jews). The Palestinians have been overwhelmed and displaced similarly to how Native Americans have been – while offered the opportunity to assimilate into the larger, new populace. Of course the Native Americans would like all of the invading White, Black, and other men to surrender and vacate the land just as the Palestinians (and others) would like the Jews to go away. But the bottom line is that it just ain’t gonna happen – without a genocide/holocaust. I’m sure other parallels could be found of historical societies that expand, dominate land, and either the prior occupants are absorbed/assimilate or are displaced and eventually own no land of their own.

        • jimmy joe

          Don’t think for a minute the israelis don’t hate the palestinians either!! Just look at that yahoo that calls the shots, you can actually see the hate oozing from it’s pores!! Full of hate I tell you. They have a mutual love/hate relationship going on, they love to hate each other!!

          • Zaphod Braden

            .Under General Assembly Resolution 273, Israel was admitted on the condition that it grant all Palestinians the right to return to their homes and receive compensation for lost or damaged property, according to General Assembly Resolution 194, paragraph 11.
            Suffice to say, Israel has never lived up to these terms.
            Israel’s membership in the UN is therefore null and void.

            Israel was supposedly “attacked” by 3 Arab armies —– NOT BY THE PALESTINIANS — by OUTSIDE armies ….. Israel has NO, ZERO, ZIP business occupying PALESTINE The UN partition plan created two states, Israel and Palestine. David Ben Gurion rejected the UN plan and simply declared Israel to be in existence. The United States instantly recognized the new nation, whereupon Israel refused to recognize Palestine. It is at that point, the point where Israel refused to grant to Palestine that which Israel claimed for itself; a right to exist, that the other nations in the region refused to recognize Israel.
            Under international law, the Fourth Geneva Convention recognizes Palestinian resistance to the occupation as legitimate and legal, especially because the Israelis are deliberately transferring a civilian population into occupied territories, which legally makes every single Jewish settler a member of the occupying army and a legitimate target for the indigenous people of Palestine.
            Simply put, the UN Human Rights Council didn’t “call out” the Palestinians or Hamas because under the terms of the Fourth Geneva Convention, what they’re doing is legal and legitimate resistance to an occupying army… it’s no different than what the French Resistance did during WW II. By contrast, everything Israel is doing is illegal.”

            Gaza (along with the West Bank and East Jerusalem) is occupied Palestinian territory under international law, determined by the vast majority of the world, as well as the highest court in the world, the UN’s International Court of Justice. Gaza cannot commit aggression against Israel, since Israel is in constant and continual commission of illegal aggression against Palestine by occupying it (illegally and sadistically blockading it and frequently committing terrorism against its civilians, including by targeting them with chemical weapons provided by US taxpayers – see “Rain of Fire” by Human Rights Watch). As documented by Amnesty Int’l, Human Rights Watch, and many others, Israel intentionally targets and murders civilians, including children, en masse.

          • Frank

            Very informative. At this point, aren’t the Palestinians a “conquered” people, in a way similar to the way Native Americans have been overwhelmed by the establishment of the United States?
            Why is it that any chance at a peace agreement is avoided or sabotaged – by Palestinian leadership, or by Israel? It seems to me that the Palestinians will have nothing to do with living peacefully alongside of Jews, at least the Palestinians that have a voice. There are Arabs living peacefully in Israel. As I see it, the Palestinians can either integrate with the Jews or keep pushing until Israel drops a bigger bomb on them – or one side is decimated to the point of preferring to live or be annihilated. The zealots will, of course, chose martyrdom for themselves and others (willing or not).

    here we go again, talking about anti-Semitism against israelis.
    Well, 90% of israelis are ashkenazi jews. Ashkenaz descended from Japheth (see genesis 10:3). REAL Semites descend from Isaac or Ishmael so 90% of israelis are NOT SEMITES. They’re FRAUDS who wear their Semite disguise to FOOL the masses into feeling sorry for them.
    Then as to the “holocaust”, the official Red Cross numbers for jews killed in Germany was less than 300,000 (compared to the 20 MILLION Russians that the Bolshevik jews killed in WWI)
    Look up Magog in the bible. It says that Magog is an “ally of Satan”. Well, Magog was also a descendant from Japheth and together they were referred to being Khazars (look up Khazar for more education)
