Analysis

  • The resolution perpetuates the anti-Israel Special Information Program on Palestine. It is yet another example of how the neutral UN secretariat is co-opted by the anti-Israel forces at the UN. The program eschews a balanced approach by overtly choosing the Palestinian narrative and ignoring Palestinian terrorism against Israeli men, women, and children and other daily realities of Israeli life. The existence of this program results in resources being taken away from other worthy causes to support this anti-Israel propaganda.
