A senior UN official quit after her agency pulled from its web site a report labelling Israeli treatment of Palestinians as “apartheid.” Reuters explains in a nutshell:
United Nations Under-Secretary General and Executive Secretary for the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), Rima Khalaf, announced her resignation at a news conference in Beirut after U.N. Secretary-General Antonio Guterres asked for the report to be taken off the ESCWA website.
ESCWA, which comprises 18 Arab states, published the report on Wednesday and said it was the first time a U.N. body had clearly charged that Israel “has established an apartheid regime that dominates the Palestinian people as a whole.”
UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric explained to reporters:
“The secretary-general cannot accept that an under-secretary general or any other senior U.N. official that reports to him would authorise the publication under the U.N. name, under the U.N. logo, without consulting the competent departments and even himself,” he said.
Meanwhile, PA President Mahmoud Abbas decides to decorate the klafteh (Yiddish for busybody) Khalaf for ‘bravery’ over the report, which figures when you consider how much he uses UN and EU money to pay stipends to the families of Palestinian Jew-killers in Israeli jails. Still, at least on the ‘apartheid’ issue, the UN secretary-general has shown that he is not prepared to be defecated on from a great height by the Arabs. And may Guterres’ use of a rectal bung cause them to suffer the most chronic and long-lasting constipation. No shit!
