Danon: I experience anti-Semitism daily in the UN

Israel's United Nations (UN) Ambassador Danny Danon participated Sunday evening at the "Modern Anti-Semitism: BDS" conference, hosted by the Department for Combating Anti-Semitism of the World Zionist Organization (WZO).

Danon spoke to the dozens of attendees at the Begin Heritage Center in Jerusalem, revealing to them that "unfortunately I experienced anti-Semitism and BDS every day, every hour.”

"My family and I represent Israel at the United Nations in New York, a strong Jewish city. We cross one street to the UN building and it is a different world."

Danon said that ''it is a source of great pride to represent the State of Israel, but anti-Semitism and BDS are highly represented there too."

The ambassador added that numbers do not lie and in 2015, the General Assembly passed 22 resolutions against Israel.

"One resolution was passed against Iran, one against North Korea, and Syria – zero resolutions, even though there are 250,000 dead there. The UN is only talking about Israel."
