UN chief Ban Ki-moon admits UN bias against Israel

‘’Unfortunately, because of the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Israel has been weighed down by criticism and suffered from bias and sometimes even discrimination,” UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon admitted during a visit to Jerusalem this week.

Addressing students participating in Rishon Lezion College of Management’s Model UN program at the UN Headquarters in Jerusalem, he said Israel should be treated equal to all the other 192 member states, in a response to complaints that Israel receives more criticism than any other member country in the world body.

He told them he had come to the region for the sixth time to express his support for the renewed peace talks  between Israel and the Palestinians. “I have never been this optimist,” he said, adding that the international community had never had such expectations and hope that the peace process would reach a solution.
