UN takes lead against Israel’s annexation plan

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres redoubles his efforts against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s annexation proposal.

Israeli envoy to the United Nations Danny Danon slammed the international community today for supporting the Palestinian campaign against Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu’s annexation plan and against the American peace plan.

Addressing the UN Security Council, Danon said, "Some in the international community choose to reward the Palestinians’ rejectionism and ignore reality. Instead of confronting the Palestinian leadership, they have tried to appease them by buying every rotten bill of goods the Palestinians were selling. This approach of blindly accepting the Palestinian narrative and demands has not and will not lead to a lasting and sustainable end to the conflict.’’ The ambassador accused the international community of supporting a “false narrative” touted by the Palestinians.
