The United Nations has “condemned” the state of Israel more than any other nation on earth, according to Quora.
In fact, “Israel has been condemned more than all the other countries in the world COMBINED,” the report explains.
“For example, in 2020, the United Nations General Assembly (UNGA) condemned Israel 17 [times] compared to a total of 6 for the rest of the world in which there was one resolution of condemnation for North Korea, Iran, Syria, Myanmar and two on Crimea.”
Now the campaign against Israel is being expanded, with a U.N. vote demanding that the Middle East’s leading democracy give up its military defense.
According to the Blaze, the vote was 149-6 to demand that Israel surrender its nuclear weapons.
The report explained, “Only a handful of countries supported Israel’s right to nuclear self-defense in a recent U.N. vote.”
The international organization, which has moved to extreme leftist positions on many issues, including abortion, in recent years, insisted that Israel “renounce possession of nuclear weapons” and assent to the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons treaty, thereby placing “all its nuclear facilities under comprehensive International Atomic Energy safeguards.”
Israel never has formally acknowledged possessing nuclear weapons, but leaks by those outsides of Israel, including ex-President Jimmy Carter, have suggested the nation has several hundred.
The latest resolution targeting Israel was pushed by Palestine and nearby countries including Egypt, Jordan, Sudan, and others.
Six nations that opposed the resolution were Canada, Israel, Micronesia, Palau, the U.S., and Liberia.
It’s not the first such political ploy by the U.N. It voted in October for Israel to “dispose” of its nuclear weapons.
Such a move would be tantamount to destruction, as multiple neighbors of Israel have vowed to pursue its total destruction.
In fact, the U.N. also recently adopted a resolution calling Israel’s establishment as a nation a “catastrophe.”
In a majority, 90 member countries voted in favor of the move with 30 dissenting, and 47 abstaining from the vote, according to the Jerusalem Post. The United States and most of the European Union came out against the proposal, the Daily Caller News Foundation reported.
In 1948, the British Mandate expired allowing Israel to announce the formation of a Jewish state and its independence. The Palestinians, however, claim the day as a time of mourning due to the displacement of their people following the Palestinian government’s rejection of the two-state proposal put forth by the United Nations in 1947.
