MKs to Ban: Eliminate ‘poisonous’ anti-Israel discrimination from UN

The UN must rid itself of anti-Israel bias and engage honestly with Israelis, Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee members MKs Michael Oren (Kulanu) and Omer Bar-Lev (Zionist Union) wrote in a letter to visiting UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon Tuesday.

The MKs asked Ban to take advantage of his trip to reach out to Israelis to regain their confidence in the UN. Israel, they wrote, is an “island of democracy and stability in a region that has so challenged the UN,” but they questioned if the international body has fulfilled the goals of its charter and ensured Israel’s equal rights as a nation among all other nations.
