Israel, antisemitism and the U.N.

Anne Bayefsky writes,
For the past four decades the United Nations has become the personal propaganda machine of the nom de guerre of Arab and Islamic states — Palestinians. Their aim is to demonize, debilitate, and destroy the state of Israel — the thriving democratic beachhead in their midst — for a start. The original U.N. mission, to protect the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small, has been hijacked and corrupted by nations that neither share the universal values of the U.N.'s Declaration of Human Rights nor have democratic intentions.
For those who doubt this proposition, Bayefsky cites evidence in "Undiplomatic Imbalance: The antisemitism at the U.N. is a problem for more than just Israel" in National Review.

For yet more convincing evidence read Steve Shamrak's Why Israel is Suspicious of the United Nations.
