Muslim UN agency head quits after being asked to withdraw document calling Israel “apartheid regime”

23

Long overdue. Is the UN finally regaining some integrity? If so, it is the Trump effect.

“U.N. agency head quits over report calling Israel an ‘apartheid regime,’” by Ruth Eglash, Washington Post, March 17, 2017:

JERUSALEM — The head of a U.N. agency responsible for publishing a report earlier this week calling Israel an “apartheid regime” resigned Friday after U.N. Secretary General António Guterres pressured her to withdraw the document.

Rima Khalaf, a U.N. undersecretary general and executive secretary of the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) headquartered in Beirut, said her decision to resign followed a request from Guterres to remove the report from the agency’s website.

The report, published Wednesday, was immediately slammed by Israel and its closest ally, the United States, who denounced it as anti-Israel propaganda. The U.N. secretary general also distanced himself from the report, saying it was released without prior consultation with the U.N. Secretariat.

On Friday, a spokesman for Guterres told Reuters news agency that the secretary general had accepted Khalaf’s resignation.

“This is not about content, this is about process,” said the spokesman, Stephane Dujarric. He said the report was published under the U.N. name and using the U.N. logo but without “consulting the competent departments.”

The report, entitled “Israeli Practices Toward the Palestinian People and the Question of Apartheid,” no longer appears on ESCWA’s website.

Israeli officials welcomed Khalaf’s departure as long overdue….

    over my many years in life I have watched the UN become a good ole boys club for the many Muslim countries that make up the UN Body. They have consistently over the years have become more and more pro Arab despite the many human rights violations of all Muslim countries that now decry Israel of. I still remember when Libya was selected to run the Human Rights Commission in 2003. That is when the UN truly started becoming a good ole boys club for Muslim countries.

    • puhiawa

      It is all about the votes.

    • JacksonPearson

      Trump’s going to trim the UN’s balls back some. IMO, a few billion is not enough, they should be forced off of U.S. soil.

  • santashandler

    So she did this all on her own without anyone else at the U.N. knowing about it. Right. So, business as usual at the over bloated, useless U.N.?

  • Pray Hard

    Maybe she’ll hang herself also.

    • Mahou Shoujo

      She can always be a prayer mat in a muslim preyer room.

  • puhiawa

    The threat of Trump withholding the illegal and obscene ransom the US pays to this subversive organization is whistling in the wind.

  • Mahou Shoujo

    Good start, now get the entire u.n to resign and go home.

    • santashandler

      Or, at least move to a remote island in the Atlantic somewhere

      • Mahou Shoujo

        That would work to.

      • JacksonPearson

        How about the UN move to Gaza. Nothing like learning rocketry and outdoor dinning from hands on experience.

    • Drew the Infidel

      Agreed, but I was thinking more along the lines of eviction and deportation.

  • Lancelot Blackeburne

    Let’s encourage more of them to resign.

    The Trump Administration is on the right path in wanting to reduce funding to the UN. Let’s hope it happens and that it has a significant effect.

  • Mal M

    The best place for her is Saudi Arabia or Iran or Pakistan or Syria… There she can watch the “apartheid regime” in real time.

  • felix1999

    The U.N.is still worthless and needs to go.
    No comment from Nikki Halley?
    She is our ambassador there and our “conscience”…LOL!

  • Simba

    Just note how adamant they are about all wrong they wish to commit.Others ( non-Muslims)start apologizing and reversing a correct policy only to keep Muslims happy.Thanks to Saudi and Middle-Eastern funds.

  • Drew the Infidel

    There you have it. All the rancid political division that goes against all the UN is supposed to stand opposed to is alive and kicking. Get the US out of the UN and the UN out of the US.

    • Eu Wei Choi

      Right !!!

  • Eu Wei Choi

    Defund the UN

  • Steve

    Its incredible but even in this reversal there is PC-“political corruptness” in the statement –

    “a spokesman for Guterres told Reuters news agency that the secretary general had accepted Khalaf’s resignation.” He said…

    ‘This is not about content, this is about process,” said the spokesman, Stephane Dujarric. He said the report was published under the U.N. name and using the U.N. logo but without “consulting the competent departments.’

    This just hints that unless the roaches are caught and pressured they will just keep sending more roaches to do the same thing. I suppose in this case at least the UN is being made more accountable but only with pressure.

  • IzlamIsTyranny

    Who will Khalaf be replaced by Fartima Al Jihadi?

  • Joseph111

    ah, don’t be sad for her – now she can work for isis full-time making little baby terrorists – with a face like that, who else would sleep with her??

  • Deplorable Kulak

    Good riddance. And don’t let the door hit your fat tuchas on the way out.
