Hamas Not Enamored By Pending Condemnation At The UN - ISRAEL TODAY


Hamas Not Enamored By Pending Condemnation At The UN

Monday, December 03, 2018 |  ISRAEL TODAY STAFF
This Thursday, November 6th, a United States resolution will be put to the vote in the UN General Assembly condemning Hamas rocket attacks on Israel and calling for an end to violence.
The United States has succeeded in winning over support from all 28 member states of the European Union to support the resolution, after incorporating other relevant UN resolutions, but without referring to a two-state solution.
US delegation leader Nikki Haley, who is leaving her position at the end of the year, said that the resolution was not in support of a specific peace plan. Any country would be free to vote for or against the activities of Hamas, as well as other terrorist groups such as Islamic Jihad, the US delegation said.
"If the United Nations fails to accept this resolution, they have no right to participate in any future peace negotiations," the delegation said.
Hamas is now trying to thwart the impending condemning vote. As early as last week, Hamas leader Ismail Haniyah sent a letter to the General Assembly in which he complained about the planned vote. International law would allow all Palestinian organizations to use any means to fight against Israel until "Palestine from the River to the Sea is liberated" he stated.
Israel UN Ambassador Danny Danon sees the Thursday vote as a historic opportunity to condemn Hamas. "Any country voting against condemning Hamas should not later turn to the United Nations if they become victims of a terror attack," Danon said at the annual IAC conference, which took place this past weekend in Miami, Florida.
"We talked to Ambassadors from around the world and explained the importance of their support," Danon continued. "We have created a broad consensus in the United Nations regarding Hamas, and that is a great achievement for us."

Abortion: The One Issue That Can Make Enemies of Israel and America at the UN - Israel Today

Abortion: The One Issue That Can Make Enemies of Israel and America at the UN

Tuesday, November 20, 2018 |  Israel Today Staff
Ever since President Donald Trump's election, Israel and the United States have present a strong united front in the halls of the United Nations. But on Monday, America found itself being voted against by Israel at the General Assembly.
The issue up for debate was sexual harassment and the #MeToo movement.
The Trump Administration sought to water down portions of a non-binding resolution pertaining to the matter, in particular clauses that affirmed a woman's right to terminate her unborn child. The US was backed in this endeavor by Russia, China, India, a number of Muslim countries and the Vatican.
"We do not recognize abortion as a method of family planning, nor do we support abortion in our reproductive health assistance," US diplomat Courtney Nemroff told the world body.
But Trump's amendment to the resolution was defeated, and among the countries voting against it was Israel.
Abortion is rampant in Israel, though rates have been declining for the past two decades. While it requires approval by a special committee, that approval is so easy to obtain that abortion is often used as a form of birth control in the Jewish state. Even so, about half of the estimated 40,000 abortions performed every year in Israel take place at private clinics without committee approval. This is technically illegal, but there have been no known prosecutions related to the practice.
