The United Nations is colluding with terror supporters, Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, charged Wednesday.
Danon’s office said organizations partnering with Hamas and the Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine (PFLP) will take part in the “United Nations Forum to Mark Fifty Years of Occupation” at UN headquarters in New York on Thursday. The forum is organized by the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People – a committee established by the UN General Assembly in 1975 to “recommend a program of implementation to enable the Palestinian people to exercise their inalienable rights to self-determination” and “to return to their homes and property.”
Among the organizations taking part in the forum are al-Haq, which describes itself as a Palestinian human rights group, but according to the Israeli watchdog NGO Monitor “characterizes Palestinian terror activities as legitimate resistance” and is a “leader in anti-Israel demonization campaigns.” The group’s General Director, Shawan Jabarin, has been denied exit visas by Israel and Jordan on several occasions due to his alleged ties to the PFLP terrorist group. Earlier this month, the PFLP said that two of its operatives were killed during a terror attack in Jerusalem in which Israeli policewoman Hadas Malka was stabbed to death. Hamas and the PFLP are both listed as terrorist organizations by the United States, Canada, the European Union and other countries.
The IDF shelled a military position in Syria on Wednesday night after a rocket struck the Golan Heights. The shell fell in an open area causing no casualties or property damage. The army said the missile as a result of errant fire from the civil war in Syria. The missile strike and IDF response was the third since June 24.
“I said that we will not tolerate spillover and that we will respond to every incident,” said Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu during a ceremony celebrating the 40th anniversary of the founding of Katzrin, the largest city in the Golan. Netanyahu added that the incident occurred during his speech, adding that the IDF responded a short time later. “Whoever attacks us – we will attack him. This is our policy and we will continue with it,” Netanyahu said.

Arab press reports claim the Trump administration is negotiating over which terrorists the Palestinian Authority may continue funding, preferring to limit stipends to terrorists in Israeli jails who were not “successful” in killing their victims.
The Trump administration will prevent any Palestinians from serving in UN positions until the US recognizes an independent Palestinian state, Haley stated.
US Ambassador to the United Nation (UN) Nikki Haley on Tuesday told Congress that the Trump administration’s policy was to prevent any Palestinians from serving in UN positions, unless and until the US recognizes an independent Palestinian state.
“If we don’t recognize Palestine as a state, we needed to acknowledge, also, that we could not sit there and put a Palestinian forward until the US changed its determinations on that front,” Haley told a House Foreign Affairs Committee hearing.
In February, the US blocked the appointment of former Palestinian prime minister Salam Fayyad to lead the UN’s political mission in Libya. Though the post was unrelated to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, the US described the move as an act of support for Israel.
