Fighting Anti-Semitism – Reversing Anti-Israel Voting at the UN

Please join the Jewish Policy Center for an important briefing.

Today’s resurgent antisemitism often is the old wine of Jew-hatred in new bottles of anti-Zionism. The defamation of the Jewish state, certified by the Soviet-inspired, Arab League promoted 1975 U.N. General Assembly resolution equating Zionism with racism, provided a powerful pretext for renewed defamation of the Jewish people.

At the United Nations, a number of countries ought to rally to Israel’s side as a democratic, peace-loving, modern state. But for short-sighted “reasons of state,” and sometimes simply due to ignorance or inertia, they habitually join what we might call the anti-Israel caucus.

Our November 21 event is meant to update members of Congress and staffers about anti-Israel, ultimately anti-Jewish, U.N. votes and to enlist their help in changing the pattern. We very much hope you will be able to join us.
