Lapid Responds To UN Hypocrisy; Calls On US To Halt Funding


Yesh Atid party head MK Yair Lapid spoke out strongly Wednesday against the United Nations, which in its latest report accused Israel of Apartheid policies against PA (Palestinian Authority) residents throughout Yehuda and Shomron. Lapid explained the report is full of “Hate and anti-Semitism”.

Lapid didn’t mince words, citing the UN has become a collaborator with terrorism rather than fulfilling its mandate of defending democracy and freedom. He questioned just how nations including Syria and Sudan dare to teach morality to the State of Israel.

Lapid calls on the United States and the European Union nations to make it clear, to send a message to the UN that if its current anti-Israel policies are not halted, they will cease supporting the organization.

He added that he was working in Washington this week to persuade decision makers to withdraw from the United Nations Human Rights Council and halt funding for the UN.
