A Historic Moment for Israel at United Nations: Hadassah Statement

Wednesday, Jun 15 2016

Statement from Hadassah National President Ellen Hershkin:

The election of Israel Ambassador Danny Danon as the new chair of the UN General Assembly’s Sixth Committee (Legal) represents a significant accomplishment for the State of Israel on the international stage, especially at a time when bias against Israel at the UN is at an all-time high.

We congratulate Israel at this historic moment as Danon becomes the first Israeli to head a permanent UN committee.

Hadassah looks forward to following Ambassador Danon in this new leadership position.

Hadassah, the Women’s Zionist Organization of America, stands with Israel in the face of attacks on both its sovereignty and security. The Palestinian denial of any Jewish connection to its holiest sites is an attempt to rewrite history, and with such an outrageous resolution passing through the body that represents all nation states, this is an embarrassment of epic proportions.
