Analysis

  • This resolution singles out Israel for criticism, while ignoring the menacing actions of other states in the region, including Iran's illegal efforts to acquire nuclear weapons in defiance of Security Council and IAEA resolutions. The resolution further ignores overt and repeated threats against the existence of Israel by neighboring states in the region.
