Outrageous: UN calls Israel “apartheid regime”

WIM header

A United Nations report released Wednesday blasts Israel, calling it “an apartheid regime that oppresses and dominates the Palestinian people as a whole.” The shocking report asks for tough sanctions against the Jewish State, but drew a sharp rebuke from Trump administration officials and pro-Israel leaders.

Because of friends like you, Christians in Defense of Israel (CIDI) stands in solidarity with Israel and its right to exist as a sovereign nation. With anti-Semitism on the rise and Israel under assault, Christians must stand with the Jewish people and with Israel. That’s why your support now is essential.Today, I am asking you to support Christians in Defense of Israel’s many initiatives to defend Israel and stop the meteoric rise of anti-Semitism.Please see my message below on this vile trend — Mat.

As reported by FoxNews, “A United Nations report co-authored by anti-Israel scholar Richard Falk on Wednesday accused the U.S. ally of being ‘guilty of the crime of apartheid’ – triggering a furious response from the Trump administration, which demanded the U.N. ‘withdraw’ the study.”

Nikki Haley, America’s Ambassador to the United Nations vilified the report as “anti-Israel propaganda.”

“The United States stands with our ally Israel and will continue to oppose biased and anti-Israel actions across the UN system and around the world.”

The report asserts that Israel’s policies meet the definition of ‘an institutionalized regime of systematic oppression and domination’ by one racial group over another. The author then issued a call to “broaden support for boycott, divestment and sanctions [BDS] initiatives among civil society actors.”

The Israeli Ambassador to the U.N., Danny Danon, called the UN report “biased and deceitful,” adding . . .

“The attempt to smear and falsely label the only true democracy in the Middle East by creating a false analogy is despicable and constitutes a blatant lie. It comes as no surprise that an organization headed by an individual who has called for boycotts against Israel, and compared our democracy to the most terrible regimes of the twentieth century, would publish such a report.”

+ + There has never been a more important time for Christians and Jews to stand in solidarity with Israel and its right to exist as a sovereign nation.

The United Nation’s open bias against Israel, coupled with other extreme anti-Semitic movements, have caused world opinion to treat Israel like a pariah state, according to a recent BBC study.

CIDI unabashedly supports Israel for biblical and national security reasons. Israel is a Middle East bastion of democracy and individual freedom. It is the birthplace of the Judeo-Christian concept of the rule of law – which, in turn, became the foundation of America and Western Civilization.
