UN rejects anti-Israeli report, and an anti-semite resigns

It looks like there may be some light at the end of the tunnel that is the UN. The Trump administration threatened already to cut funding for the UN, which should be done regardless. For now, Nikki Haley's efforts appear to be paying off, as the UN's backing away from an anti-Israel declaration, and one of the anti-semites on the staff there has quit:
The beginning of change? The UN rejected a report, compiled by one of its agencies, accusing Israel of Apartheid.

The secretary-general of the United Nations (UN) on Friday rejected a report, authored by UN officials, that accused Israel of establishing an “apartheid regime,” prompting the resignation of the head of the agency that authored it.

The report, compiled by the United Nations Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) and titled “Israeli Practices towards the Palestinian People and the Question of Apartheid: Palestine and the Israeli Occupation,” was produced by Princeton Professor Emeritus Richard Falk, the UN’s former Special Rapporteur for Human Rights in Palestine, and American political scientist Virginia Tilley of Southern Illinois University.

Both have a long history of anti-Israel activism.

The report “concludes, on the basis of overwhelming evidence, that Israel is guilty of the crime of apartheid, and urges swift action to oppose and end it.”

ESCWA is comprised of 18 Arab states.

UN Secretary-General António Guterres called for the report to be removed from ESCWA’s website.

Anti-Israel Agency Head Steps Down

UN Under-Secretary-General and ESCWA Executive Secretary Rima Khalaf announced her resignation, saying she was pressured by Guterres to withdraw the report.

“It was expected, naturally, that Israel and its allies would exercise immense pressure on the UN secretary-general to distance himself from the report and to ask for it to be withdrawn,” she said at a press conference in Lebanon.

When Guterres instructed her on Thursday morning to withdraw the report, “I asked him to review his position but he insisted on it,” Khalaf said. “Based on that, I submitted to him my resignation from the United Nations.”

“A secretary-general cannot accept that an undersecretary-general or any other senior UN official that reports to him would authorize the publication under the UN name, under the UN logo, without consulting the competent departments and even himself,” Dujarric said after Khalaf’s resignation. “It’s about senior officials dealing with a matter that implicates other parts of the system — that they consult and they coordinate.”
This is definitely good news. Even so, the UN by all means needs to be put out of business and not be funded on taxpayer money.
