Lapid slams UN for using US funds toward ‘propaganda to destroy Israel’

Yesh Atid leader Yair Lapid on Monday accused the United Nations of becoming a "collaborator of Islamic fundamentalism," saying that the body facilitated aid that reaches "agents of terrorist organizations like Hamas and Hezbollah."  

"Instead of being an organization the defends world-wide freedom, democracy, liberal values and peace, some branches of the United Nations have become the exact opposite,"  the former finance minister stated at the Israel NGO Shurat HaDin’s annual conference.

Therefore, Lapid called on the United States and the European Union to place conditions on continued funding for the UN, in order to stop what he said is the body’s campaign that seeks to delegitimize Israel.
