A bunch of stuff that does not address my post
Read the whole article instead of the single paragraph I posted. You might learn something.
a bunch of stuff specifically dealing with the UN Special Emergency Sessions that you specifically referred to in your post.
As to the rest of the article which was written by Morris B. Abram, chairman of United Nations Watch, and a board member of the World Jewish Congress, it's also full of emotional responses and contradictions concerning the UN and some of the Arab member nations. Abram bitches about Israel being condemned for violating the fourth Geneva Convention, which he implies doesn't apply to Israel because it "grew out of the Nazi occupation of Europe." "Thus," he rationalizes, " that Convention will now be employed against the people who were Hitler's victims." He believes that because the Ashkenazim were victims of the Holocaust, Israel should be exempt from a treaty that attempts to ensure the humane treatment of civilians during war. Abram is a raving hypocrite.
Abram writes, "though Israel has been the subject of aggressive wars in 1948, 1967 and 1973 and the victim of countless terrorist attacks, the Security Council and the General Assembly have never once censured its assailants." To make his claim, he conveniently ignores the fact that Israel, or more precisely, the Zionists were themselves assailants in the 1948 war which was the ultimate extension of the violence and strife that had been building up between them and the Arabs since the Zionists' arrival en masse to Palestine since the early part of the 20th century. In the 1967 war, it was Israel who initiated the violence, striking first at the forces Egypt had amassed at the border with Israel. Of these three wars, the '73 one is the only one in which Israel was truly surprised attacked by Egypt and Syria.
Abram goes on to write about specifically "anti-Semitic reverbations" in the UN, outrageous libels that go unchallenged, and cites as examples the instance during the 1991 session in which Syria's UN ambassador repeated the infamous Damascus Blood Libel. Contradictorily, he himself states that this libel was challenged on record through US pressure. He also cites the instance at a 1997 session of the UN's Human Rights Commission where Nabil Ramlawi, the Palestinian observer delegate to that commission cited a supposed Israeli newspaper claim that the Israeli Government had injected 300 Palestinian children with the HIV virus. What Abram doesn't include in his article is that in the Right of Reply which goes into the minutes of these meetings, the Israel ambassador to this commission, Yosef Lamdan, went on record denying that Israel had injected the HIV/AIDS virus into 300 young Palestinians during the intifadah, and calling Ramlawi a liar. (source
) Later, Lamdan submitted a letter to the Commission's president pointing to a full retraction of the HIV story by the Egyptian paper al-Ahram, from which Ramlawi actually got his story, stating that it was completely false. Apparently, no one but Abram paid much mind to Ramlawi's outlandish claims, because, as Lamdan explained to the press soon after that meeting, "The Palestinian observer has never had a reputation for accuracy and integrity, but today he has surpassed himself."(source
Finally, as another example of anti-Semitism at the UN Abram writes, "since the Oslo accords, 259 Israelis have been killed and 5000 injured by Palestinian terror attacks. During the same period, 34 resolutions deploring Israel were passed at the UN, but not one against the terror attacks." What the UN concerns itself with is its member nations and their actions in regard to UN resolutions. Terrorist groups are not members of the UN.
