„The US abstention from a recent vote against Israeli settlements at the UN Security Council topped the Simon Wiesenthal Center’s annual list released Tuesday of 10 worst outbreaks of Jew-hatred and anti-Israel incidents. The Jewish human rights organization ranked the Obama administration’s move as the top case, charging that it erased Jewish history.
‚The most stunning 2016 UN attack on Israel was facilitated by President [Barack] Obama when the US abstained on a UN Security Council resolution condemning Israel for settlement construction. It reversed decades-long US policy of vetoing such diplomatic moves against the Jewish State,‘ wrote the center. The organization added: ‚It also urges UN members »to distinguish, in their relevant dealings, between the territory of the State of Israel and the territories occupied since 1967,« effectively endorsing BDS.‘“ (Benjamin Weinthal: „UN vote tops Wiesenthal list of top 10 antisemitic, anti-Israel cases“)
