Haaretz Daily (click title to this post) reports that:
At a closed meeting held recently in New York, UN ambassadors from Arab and EU countries met and the Arabs made clear that they do not accept the initiative for the UN General Assembly to condemn anti-Semitism.
But the crux of the article is the Europeans' reaction:
The blunt language used by the Arabs describing their opposition, and their plans to use diplomatic means to prevent the resolution from reaching a vote, shocked the Europeans, said a UN source.
Essentially, the Europeans are congenitally stupid or willfully ignorant. In 1975, the Arab League sponsored the Zionism is Racism resolution in the General Assembly that was designed to delegitimize Israel. Indeed, the vote by the GA in ratifying that resolution, and the political cover it gave European elites, did more damage to Israel than any of the four wars to destroy it that the Arabs embarked upon from 1948-1973. The Arab press constantly equates Israelis with Nazis, reprints Nazi propaganda as fact, claims the Holocaust is a Zionist fraud, reprints the Protocols of the Elders of Zion as fact and opines that the Nazis should have succeeded in their Final Solution.
Now, the Europeans are surprised that Arabs are anti-Semitic and would prevent a resolution against anti-Semitism because (from the Haaretz article) "Arab League Ambassador Mahamas Hani warned that a UN resolution condemning anti-Semitism would have a negative impact on the Middle East." The Europeans are in fantasyland and need to wake up to reality.
