The United Nations (U.N.) is using President Obama’s betrayal of Israel – allowing a dangerous anti-Israel resolution – to unleash a new round of Boycott, Divestment, and Sanctions (BDS) in an effort to further delegitimize the State of Israel. It has created a new blacklist of companies that support or do business with Israel in Judea, Samaria, and eastern Jerusalem.
As Israel National News reports:
The UN General Assembly approved the funding of $138,700 towards the creation of a database of companies which do business in Jewish communities in Judea, Samaria, and eastern Jerusalem.
The sum was approved on the same day that the Security Council approved the resolution, not vetoed by the Obama government, condemning all Jewish presence over the 1949 armistice lines, the Human Right Voices NGO reported.
The database would serve as a blacklist to help BDS organizations seeking to foster boycotts of the State of Israel.
The UN Human Rights Council (HRC) approved the creation of the database in March, but lacked the authority to fund the action. The General Assembly decision grants the project the necessary funding.
Make no mistake – President Obama has empowered Israel’s enemies. His Administration has emboldened terrorists.
Israel is under vicious assault.
At the ACLJ, we’re dedicated to defending Israel. We’ve defended Israel at the U.N. and the International Criminal Court (ICC) for decades. We’ve defeated anti-Israel BDS attacks here in the U.S. and across the globe.
Now we’re mobilizing our offices on Capitol Hill, at the U.N, and in Jerusalem to do so again. We’ve just filed a massive lawsuit against the Obama Administration over its previous attempts to subvert Israel. We’re about to file legal demands with the Administration over its treacherous betrayal of our ally at the U.N. Security Council, and we’re preparing further legal action at the U.N. and ICC to defend Israel from these renewed anti-Semitic attacks.
As we directly defend Israel at the U.N., send critical legal letters, and fight on Capitol Hill, every gift (even $5) will be DOUBLED. Have your gift doubled through our Matching Challenge.
