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, we need your support. Defend Israel today.
They did it again. Only weeks after some of the most violent attacks on Israel in years, more rockets rained down on Israeli communities. Israel’s enemies would like the world to somehow view them as victims, as they accuse Israel of war crimes and aggression. Yet once again, red alert sirens were...
In our ongoing Freedom of Information Act (FOIA) lawsuit , the ACLJ has just uncovered what appears to be direct correspondence between the CEO of an anti-Israel group that was being funded by the Obama State Department and undisclosed recipients at the State Department itself. This revelation...
Begin with the sobering fact that last week Israel and the United States celebrated a long overdue moment: the United States, as required by the Jerusalem Embassy Act , recognized Jerusalem as the capital of the State of Israel by relocating its embassy from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem. While all...
As we’ve discussed here before , Palestinian officials and their many anti-Semitic, anti-Zionist, and anti-Israel supporters around the world continuously demand that the International Criminal Court (ICC) investigate and try Israeli nationals for a whole host of made-up offenses which the...
