He may have been under pressure from the very anti-semites he's protecting
, but that's still no excuse:
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon denied on Wednesday there is any bias in the UN against Israel.
At a press "encounter" at the UN Headquarters in New York on Wednesday, a reporter for Israel Radio pressed Ban about his comments last Friday while meeting with students at the UN headquarters in Jerusalem.
Ban simply said, "I don't think there is discrimination against Israel at the United Nations." [...]
The Secretary-General was in Israel on Friday where he met with students at the UN headquarters in Jerusalem, and reportedly did admit to these students that there is bias against Israel in the UN.
“Unfortunately because of the conflict, Israel has been weighed down by criticism and suffered from bias – sometimes even discrimination,” Ban said at the time, according to several media sources.
On Monday in New York, Ban retracted these comments, and emphasized that "incitement against any group of people, any religion or tradition…is unacceptable."
Not only did he bend over backwards, he obviously has no respect for the 1st Amendment's religion clause. And, he has no ability to distinguish between race and religion. IMO, that makes him a man of very poor educational background to boot.
