The international grassroots civil rights movement End Jew Hatred released the following statement following last week’s vote by the United Nations General Assembly to seek an advisory opinion from the International Court of Justice (ICJ) on the legality of Israel’s “occupation” of Palestinian territories on the grounds that it can be considered de-factor annexation:

“At a time when antisemitism and violent attacks against Jews are increasing around the world, the United Nations General Assembly’s recent vote does little more than reinforce and normalize Jew-hatred by singling out the ancestral homeland of the Jewish people for delegitimization that ignores history. The General Assembly, through its singular fixation on denying the expression of Jewish identity and self-determination, risks irrelevance at a time when so many other global crises need to be addressed. This vote also flies in the face of the Oslo Accords and endangers any prospect of a full, meaningful, and peaceful resolution of decades of conflict and fighting. Legitimizing false narratives about Israel only leads to more violence against Jews, and leaves the U.N. with blood on its hands.”
