Today, Yom Ha'atzmaut, Jews the world over celebrate the 62nd anniversary of the creation of the State of Israel.
But it seems that at the United Nations, everyday is Israel-bashing day.
One of the latest attacks, Resolution A/HRC/13/L.29, passed by the infamous UN Human Rights Council last month, accuses Israel of "grave human rights violations" in Gaza and "occupied Palestinian territory, including East Jerusalem". But this time, the Council, which has never once condemned terrorist organizations like Hamas and Hezbollah, has now criticized the Simon Wiesenthal Center for building a Museum of Tolerance in the heart of West Jerusalem.
The UNHRC, contrary to a unanimous decision of Israel's Supreme Court, falsely claims that our project is being built "on part of the historic Mamila Cemetery ... excavat[ing] ancient tombs".
Nothing could be further from the truth. Our project is being built on the former municipal car park of Jerusalem, where for nearly 50 years, Jews, Christians and Muslims parked their cars. As the Supreme Court stated, "For almost 50 years the compound has not been a part of the cemetery, and it was used for various public purposes ... This area was not regarded as a cemetery by the general public or by the Muslim community ... No one denied this position." (Bones between 200 400 years old were found and re-interred in an nearby Muslim cemetery. No markers or tombstones were ever found on the site).
Recently an article, in the Palestine Post, dated November 22, 1945, exposes just how outrageous and cynical the current campaign is for three years before there was a State of Israel, the Supreme Moslem Council authorized the building of a commercial center, including a bank and factory on the actual Mamila Cemetery itself.
But those seeking to demonize Israel and all supporters of Zion are not deterred by the facts. With the help of the well-oiled anti-Israel machinery at the UN, a new front in the war against the Jewish state has been launched.
Consider the list of regimes who voted for this travesty; they were led by Pakistan (on behalf of the 57-member states of the Organization of Islamic Conference (OIC), Saudi Arabia, Egypt, Bangladesh, Cuba, Angola, Argentina, Bahrain, Russian Federation, China, Jordan, South Africa, Mauritius, Kyrgyzstan, Madagascar, Qatar and others. We consider it a badge of honor to be condemned with Israel.
In the coming months we will tell you more about the historic project we are building in Jerusalem, for now we need to alert you to the mushrooming diplomatic and legal attacks on the Jewish State and her proud supporters like the Simon Wiesenthal Center.
