Two popular books over the past year on the topic of antisemitism were "People Love Dead Jews" by Dara Horn, and "Jews Don't Count" by David Baddiel.

Judging from UN reports, we can combine them into "Dead Jews Don't Count, Either."

The UN issued a list of statements by various leaders concerning events in Israel and the territories during February. 

The Table of Contents shows the bias there. 

I. UN Human Rights High Commissioner calls for de-escalation

II. Palestinian Rights Committee Bureau rejects Israeli retaliation against PA

III. OIC condemns escalation of crimes in the OPT

IV. ICJ sets deadlines for submissions following request for Advisory Opinion

V. EU appalled by the attack in East Jerusalem

VI. Palestinian Rights Committee Chair participates in LAS Conference on Jerusalem

VII. Status of Jerusalem cannot be altered by unilateral actions, UN Secretary General tells LAS Conference

VIII. EU rejects Israeli government’s decision to “legalize” settlement outposts

IX. OIC condemns the Israeli decision to “legitimize” outposts, calls on the UN Security Council to assume responsibilities

X. UN Special Rapporteurs say Israel should be held accountable for acts of “domicide”

XI. Special Coordinator Wennesland, UNRWA Deputy Commissioner-General Stenseth brief Security Council

XII. Security Council expresses concern, dismay over Israeli settlement expansions, adopting presidential statement 

XIII. Palestinian Rights Committee elects Bureau, adopts 2023 Programme of Work 

XIV. Special Coordinator Wennesland appalled by the loss of civilian lives in Nablus 

XV. EU High Representative Borrell deplores the death of civilians during Israeli military operation in Nablus 

XVI. UN Human Rights Commissioner concerned by escalating violence in Israel and OPT 

XVII. EU condemns Israel’s approval of more than 7,000 housing units in illegal settlements 

XVIII. Palestinian Rights Committee Bureau condemns extreme violence by Israeli forces in Nablus, calls for Palestinians’ protection 

XIX. OIC issues communiqué on escalation of aggression by Israel 

XX. UN Special Coordinator Wennesland gravely concerned by violence in Huwwara, near Nablus 

XXI. EU highly concerned by the latest wave of violence in oPt

During February, there were three terror attacks that resulted in six Israeli fatalities. Only one of those attacks was the sole subject of one of the statements listed without also referring to killed Palestinians for "balance."

That statement, issued by the EU on February 10 after a Palestinian rammed his car into religious Jews at a bus stop, killing two children and a newlywed man, blames no one:

On 10 February, the Spokesperson for the European Union Delegation to the State of Israel issued the following statement. 
The European Union is appalled by today’s terror attack in East Jerusalem, which killed a six year-old child and a young man and injured other people. 

The EU strongly and unequivocally condemns terrorism in all its forms. We send our deepest condolences to the families of the victims and wish those injured a speedy recovery.
They don't mention that the terrorist is Palestinian. They don't mention that the victims are Israeli. They say it happened in "East Jerusalem" which implies that (if the victims were Jews) they had no business being there to begin with. 

The EU did mention the other two terror attacks later in the month - but it wrote more words about the death of a single Palestinian than the deaths of three Israelis in two separate attacks:

The European Union is highly concerned by the continuously spiraling violence in the occupied Palestinian territory. It condemns the terror attack in the West Bank on Sunday, in which two Israelis lost their lives, and yet another attack on Monday claiming the life of one more Israeli.
The EU condemns the outbreak of settlers’ violence, which resulted in the killing of one Palestinian, injuring of several hundreds of Palestinians and burning of houses and shops, causing the unacceptable destruction of Palestinian property
 Notice that two Jews "lost their lives" and one's life was "claimed" by no one in particular. But the Palestinian was "killed" by "settlers' violence." 

It is clear that the EU, and the UN, is trying to downplay murders of Jews and to highlight the deaths of Palestinians.
