I’ve stated this on repeated occasions, that Israel can expect the same treatment by the international community at the UN, that Blacks in the U.s. received at the hands of the court system in a segregated South. What happens in official U.N general assembly meetings is nothing more than ‘Jim Crow‘ era legislation in an international setting. Here it is for all to see, and it’s so bad that there’s nervous laughter erupting by those who vote in favor of such nonsense after having been outed by an unsuspecting interpreter.
NOTE: Anyone mentioning the hundreds of UNGA resolutions as proof of Israel being in violation of international law needs to have their heads examined.
Hot mic catches UN interpreter saying anti-Israel votes are ‘a bit much’
The truth comes out when we think no one else is listening.
On Thursday a United Nations interpreter, unaware that her microphone was on, uttered words of truth in reaction to the General Assembly’s adoption of nine politically-motivated resolutions condemning Israel, and zero resolutions on the rest of the world.
Under the mistaken impression that she was speaking only to colleagues, the interpreter uttered the following words into the headphones of every UN delegate, and before a live webcast audience worldwide:
“I think when you have… like a total of ten resolutions on Israel and Palestine, there’s gotta be something, c’est un peu trop, non? [It’s a bit much, no?] I mean I know… There’s other really bad shit happening, but no one says anything about the other stuff.”
Laughter erupted among the delegates. “The interpreter apologizes,” said the unfortunate truth-teller, moments later, followed by her audible gasp. I sincerely hope she won’t get fired.
Because the one who should really apologize today is the UN. Founded on noble ideals, the world body is turning the dream of liberal internationalists into a nightmare.
For by the end of its annual legislative session next month, the General Assembly will have adopted a total of 22 resolutions condemning Israel—and only four on the rest of the world combined. The hypocrisy, selectivity, and politicization are staggering.
