UN Turnaround

Thirty years ago the UN General Assembly adopted its infamous resolution equating Zionism with racism. Israel’s standing in the UN had reached a new low at the hands of the automatic majority enjoyed by the Arab and Islamic bloc together with the Non-Aligned Movement. Last week, the same General Assembly unanimously passed a resolution sponsored by Israel – and co-sponsored by over 100 countries, led by the U.S. and the world’s leading democracies – promoting Holocaust remembrance and education across the globe. This is unprecedented stuff. This is the first instance that a resolution proposed by Israel has ever been adopted by the General Assembly, and it is the first resolution ever adopted by the Assembly regarding the Holocaust.
