PM Netanyahu directs the Foreign Ministry to cut $2 million from Israel’s annual UN funding after Human Rights Council passes latest anti-Israel motion.
By Uzi Baruch
Prime Minister and Minister of Foreign Affairs Benjamin Netanyahu instructed the Foreign Ministry to cut $ 2 million from Israel’s payments to the UN, in light of the hostile proposals adopted by the UN Human Rights Council last week.
This amount will be used to deepen and expand Israeli projects in the field of international assistance, and will be invested in developing countries that support Israel in international institutions.
This decision is part of the Israeli campaign, along with its allies, such as the US, to correct the obsessive focus of the UN and its agencies on condemning Israel and the discrimination in the world body against the only Jewish state.
The UN human Rights Council passed a resolution urging countries to boycott the Jewish communities of Judea, Samaria, and eastern Jerusalem.
