I could not find this in English as of this writing, but Arab media is reporting a "scandal" where Israel has been nominated to become the head of the Sixth Committee of the General Assembly of the United Nations on combating terrorism and issues of international law.
According to the report, which is the top story at Ma'an Arabic as of this writing, Israel was nominated by Western European nations to head this legal committee. The leadership rotates among the different geographic groups and this year the Western European group, which also includes Israel, Australia and New Zealand, gets to choose the leader.
They unanimously chose Israel.
The Arab and Muslim bloc bitterly opposed the nomination they couldn't do anything about it.
The Arabs tried to get Turkey to run against Israel, but a Turkish diplomat in New York stingingly responded, "What unites Israel and Turkey in the fight against terrorism is far greater than what brings together Turkey with other Islamic and Arab countries."
The Arab/Muslim block claimed that Israel wasn't qualified to head a legal committee "because of its shameful record of crimes and violations."
We have lots of ideas, but we need more resources to be even more effective. Please donate today to help get the message out and to help defend Israel.
