The United Nations is supposed to be a voice that defends human rights. Instead, it defends those who abuse human rights. The World Jewish Congress is using its global voice to highlight this horrendous situation.
The World Jewish Congress is an international organization that represents Jewish communities and organizations in 100 countries around the world. It advocates on the behalf of Jewish communities and organizations with governments, parliaments, international organizations and representatives of other faiths.
The World Jewish Congress goes back to 1936, in Geneva, Switzerland. It has been at the forefront of fighting for the rights of Jews and Jewish communities around the world.
World Rep of the Jewish People
The WJC likes to call itself the ‘Diplomatic Arm of the Jewish People.’ This is a rather grandiose description of themselves. It acts as the active representative of the Jewish people in world affairs. They have been active in countless campaigns that advocate for justice for Holocaust victims and their heirs. In addition, the WJC has campaigned for the right of Soviet Jews to emigrate to Israel over the last few decades. The campaign went on for decades and culminated with more than one million Soviet Jews moving to Israel. And most of all, they counter anti-Semitism and the de-legitimization of Israel. But now they are also active in calling out the hypocrisy of the United Nations.
This is not just important for Israel and the Jewish people. It is critical for all of humanity. There are many human rights abuses that must be focused on and brought out to the public. But as the United Nations wastes its time focusing on Israel, innocent people suffer human rights abuses all over the world.
The United Nation’s obsessive focus on Israel creates a horrible standard. Israel is the only true democracy in the Middle East, and it has an excellent record on human rights. The UN choice to obsess on Israel and ignore true human rights victims is pure hypocrisy.
This must stop!
