UN Condemns Israel As the World Marks Holocaust Remembrance Day

As the world commemorated the International Holocaust Remembrance Day, the United Nations (U.N.) compared Palestinians to the Jewish victims of the Nazi genocide, according to an opinion piece by Anne Bayefsky posted on FoxNews.
On Monday, the U.N. hosted a temporary exhibit called “Holocaust by Bullets,” featuring extensive research by the French organization Yahad-In Unum, which focuses on the murder of 2 million Jews at gunpoint.
However, the Holocaust associated exhibit was preceded by the U.N.’s month-long December display of Palestinian children featured in “devastating” conditions, suffering from unwarranted Israeli “operations.”
Palestinian U.N. Representative Riyad Mansour helped launch the provocative exhibit by blatantly inciting Palestinian kids to kill Jews.
“We are so proud that in this popular uprising, the backbone of this uprising are the youth of Palestine,” Mansour said.
The uprising Mansour boasts about is the ongoing wave of Palestinian terrorist attacks targeting innocent Jews and Israeli soldiers. Many of these attacks include stabbings, shootings, vehicular ramming, and throwing rocks and Molotov cocktails.
Moreover, on Tuesday, the Security Council held an explicitly anti-Israel discussion, “The situation in the Middle East, including the Palestinian question,” featuring seven hours of incitement and name calling targeting the Jewish state which was broadcasted internationally. Israel was accused of engaging in “crimes against humanity,” “execution”, “apartheid,” “racism”, “brutality,” terrorism” and “torture of children” among other libels.
That day Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon appeared to have justified Palestinian terrorism, saying that “it is human nature to react to occupation.”
“Palestinian frustration is growing under the weight of a half century of occupation and the paralysis of the peace process…as oppressed peoples have demonstrated throughout the ages, it is human nature to react to occupation, which often serves as a potent incubator of hate and extremism,” Ban said.
Israel’s U.N. ambassador, Danny Danon, pointed out the hypocrisy surrounding recent Security Council resolutions. In the last four months, while “Israelis have been stabbed in their homes, shot at in the streets and run over by terrorists using cars as weapons…the Council adopted 12 resolutions against terrorism and condemned terrorist attacks in France, Sinai, Lebanon, Mali, Tunisia, Turkey, Iraq, Syria, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Somalia and Sudan.” However, terrorist attacks against Israelis were never addressed, there was “no condemnation, no expression of solidarity, not even a statement of concern,” Danon said.
Meanwhile, Iran’s leader Ayatollah Khamenei posted a video to his official site challenging the extent of the Nazi’s genocide against the Jews, reports the Times of Israel.
“No one in European countries dares to speak about the Holocaust, while it is not clear whether the core of the matter is reality or not,” a narrator in the video says. “Even if it is reality, it is not clear how it happened. Speaking about the Holocaust and expressing doubts about it is considered to be a great sin,” states the Farsi-speaking narrator, presumably Khamenei.
