anti-semitism

A clear concise description of what the UN was, is and will be.
Should we be surprised about Bayefsky about her commentary? definitely not. This is what an inept organization is all about. Israel was born with a target on it's back! Israel is the envy of the world!

Main reason for UN's anti-Israel bias

Bayefsky doesn't say it. Perhaps because she's too polite or perhaps because it isn't PC. But the main reason why the UN is obsessed with Israel is because there are over 2 billion Moslems in the world and several hundred million Arabs, most of whom see Israel as the devil incarnate. Arab and Moslem societies are some of the most racist and intolerant societies in the world. Hardly a day passes without some outrage being committed within or by members of these societies on non-Moslems (as well as on Moslems, who are the main victims of their intolerance).
That these people sit in judgment of Israel would be a joke if the odds weren't something like 2 billion to 16 million (approximate number of Jews in the world). They have turned Israel into a pariah among the nations and access to oil and a giant market for weapons and other goodies seals the deal for the Europeans....a recent opinion poll in Europe - pre-Gaza 2014 - has it that 59% of the Europeans questioned believed Israel bore the main responsibility for the Middle East crisis and was the major threat to world peace.
Well, here we are again...except that Israel has an army now and, if they are pushed to the wall, nuclear weapons.
Unfortunately, that is the way of the world.
Perhaps the natural gas resources off the Mediterranean coast will turn Israel into a major energy exporter. Then we'll see if that number remains at 59%.
Bayefsky should say it like it is and not just attack the UN.

TRUTH

Thank you for your bravery with calling things as they really are! We are not fooled by the UN and know it as what it really is! A purveyor of antisemitism! Thank you for the TRUTH!

A powerful speech about the hypocrisy of the UN.

An excellent and cogent speech that underlines the pervasive culture of global antisemitism that seems to be embedded in the UN. Time that more of us take a public position against this.

The U.N.

The U.N. just like it's predecessor, "The League of Nations" has never been good for very much. By the way "Jew Haters", most of the Xmas songs were written by Jewish song writers! So why do you hate us?

Great and honest speech.

I don't understand why so many people are against Israel and/or the Jewish people. Look at the list of Nobel prize winners in all fields. A huge majority of them are Jews. They have been so important in so many fields, not the least is medicine. FYI, I am not Jewish but I think they are getting a really raw deal from the UN.

well informed and courageous

It might be argued that the reason Israel is condemned so frequently in the UN is because they deserve it and the charge of anti-semitism is an excuse to escape responsbilitity. It is only at the end of her speech that Ms. Bayefsky clearly addresses the injustice of the condemnations by proving that Israel's actions are the legitimate measures that a sovereign nation must take for its self defense. Perhaps that point could have been made earlier on. But in any case Ms. Bayefsky's speech is well informed, cogent and courageous. Thank you for featuring this.

This was a great speech. the UN is horrendouslly antisemitic. They should be ashamed of themselves

(17) Barry Jacobs, September 12, 2014 11:20 PM

Your U.N. speech

I admire and respect your speech at the U.N. You were brief , accurate and deserve the highest accolades. Although your speech will not contradict denial and anti-semitism, it will be noted to the world that you indeed go on record as being factual and confronting hypocrites.

Thank you

How brave! It's very sad that speeches like this are few and far between...

(13) Lt. Col Alan Levy, September 12, 2014 4:01 PM

Time to replace this biased, anti-semitic organization

One has to be puzzled why the USA continues to make contributions financially to this wholly, hate-filled organization.
It is at least partly -- or wholly -- because MOST OF ITS FUNDING has as its origin, the terrorist Islamist, intent-on-the-distruction-of -Israel?
How shameful, how cowardly and anti-human!

(12) Fred, September 12, 2014 1:02 PM

A marvellous speech. How much to the point.

(11) Matthew Smith, September 12, 2014 7:23 AM

Brilliant address

Amazing speech, well done for revealing the truth. May the UN and leaders of countries listen to this and act responsibly

(10) Shaindy, September 12, 2014 12:03 AM

Praise

I praise you and I praise your parents for properly developing you. I am most appreciative of your accumulated data and details of the actions of the United Nations and of your vigilance and courage to denounce their actions. My blessings to you and may we witness a new reign of combating justice in the U N and the world.

UNFORTUNATELY THE WRONG PEOPLE PAY ATTENTIONTO THESE REMARKS THEY SHOULD BE
DIRECTED TO THE un SMALL LETTERS AND TO LEADERS AROUND THE WORLD INCLUDING OURS

United Nazis

Is what I call them.

Thank you.

Fantastic for me to hear the facts of what is really going on. BH

Unvarnished Truth

Thank you, Ann Bayefsky, for your fearless unveiling of the whole truth. The United Nations seems to have more into a body united around only one cause: the unjust, unfair, and imbalanced condemnation of the Jewish State in a foolish attempt to appease radical jihadists. Among those who choose this path, who will speak out for them when they discover history's truth: Appeasement never extinquishes the sparks of tyranny; it always fans its flames.

(5) David, September 11, 2014 4:36 PM

Hear, hear!!!

Brava, and well said!! Could Aish please provide the context for this speech? To whom was it made? When? Where?

Rachel, September 14, 2014 4:46 PM

Yes, please provide context

I would simply add that there are many bad actors in human rights -- from North Korea to China, Saudi Arabia to Syria to Iran, to Russia, to name just a few. Yet only Israel is routinely villainized by the UN.

(4) Judith Herzog, September 11, 2014 4:32 PM

Who rules the UN?

The arabs run the U.N. The lack of capital first letter is deliberate- never will I show any respect or dignity for a bunch or bigoted murderers! In previous generations there were some reasonable muslims/arabs. I know. I lived in an arab country as a girl.... but no more! They are all brainwashed from childhood -even to the point of "turning in" less bigoted parents- to be antisemitic! Note that virtually ALL of these arab nations were allied to the Nazis during the 30'-40's! It shows! The U.N. is racist, bigoted, and antisemitic

Stereotyping any people is wrong

I know a number of Arabs (Christian as well as Muslim) and a few Persians who've immigrated to the U.S. because of the intolerance in their societies. To brand them all as murderers is just as much an untrue slander as many of the anti-Semitic stereotypes bandied about by those regimes.

Best speech ever

Fantastic speech,
You get Standing ovation from all human kind. (who ever consider himself / herself a human) .
God Bless you !!!
Don't stop.
keep opening the world's eyes.
We Love you.

One to one

Let the UN take Israel to court. We welcome that! Afterwards we will place your findings and judgement at the footstool of the G-d of Israel.
From one new moon to another and from one Sabbath to another all flesh on earth will be worshiping before the King of Israel. So, please do us the favor, BRING IT ON!

Antisemitism: enormously differing criteria used to condemn

Your speech is very true. The only thing missing is the fact that UN's criteria for condemnation are very different: impossibly high for Israel, and nonexistent or extremely low for others. Thank you for defending Israel and the truth!
