“LONG LIVE PALESTINE!” ANTI-ISRAEL UNESCO APPROVES PALESTINE AS MEMBER

“Long Live Palestine!” a UNESCO member shouted in French, reports AP, when vote of 107-14 with 52 abstentions was announced. The non-state Palestine is now an official member of UNESCO. Long considered a bastion of anti-Israel sentiment, the United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization has approved a state that is not a state whose primary goal is to destroy another one of its members, ISRAEL. Heartbreaking!

I lived in Israel for almost two years, first on a kibbutz, then in Beersheva, Ramat Gan and finally Jerusalem. It personally hurts me that there exists in the world so much anti-Israel sentiment as well as anti-Semetic feelings in general. I have never understood it. Neither has my husband, Max, who was baptized at the Vatican and raised Catholic. I am Jewish.

2009 GOLDSTONE REPORT TO UN ADMITTEDLY WRONG

Chicago Tribune article reveals Goldstone 2009 report to United Nations about Gaza invasion was wrong. And what a furor it caused! It said: “Israeli soldiers deliberately targeted Palestinian civilians during its invasion of Gaza.” Not true. Now there is proof!

In an op-ed to the Washington Post, Richard Goldstone now explains there is proof that the opposite is true and that he “hoped that our inquiry into all aspects of the Gaza conflict would begin a new era of evenhandedness at the UN Human Rights Council, whose history of bias against Israel cannot be doubted.”
