We (moderators and friends of the ZNN Group) are fed up with unequal and unfair treatment of Israel at the UN. For those of us who want to be able to respect the United Nations, it hurts to have to apologize for blatantly racist treatment of Israel by an organization that should be dedicated to equality of nations and peoples.

Aren't you fed up? Please help us build support for fair play for Israel at the UN. Sign the petition for fair play, and help us spread the word and the UN into the postive force for peace it was supposed to be.

Petition: Fair Play for Israel at the United Nations

Attention bloggers and posters - Please link to this page

and ask people to sign the petition -

Thank you.


The preamble of the UN Charter affirms the faith of the founders "in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small."

Unfortunately, the UN has failed in its charter obligations toward one nation, Israel.

Israel is not treated as an equal at the United Nations. Israel has been the target of an endless stream of biased General Assembly resolutions, including the vicious "Zionism is Racism" resolution of 1975. Each year, the UN marks a day of solidarity with the Palestinian people on  November, 29,  "mourning"  the anniversary of the UN Partition Plan, General Assembly Resolution 181 that partitioned Palestine in 1947 and created the State of Israel. Arab
states and Palestinians refused to recognize that resolution. In a recent "solidarity" day, high ranking UN officials including UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, "mourned" the establishment of Israel and condemned Israel, while standing under a map showing
"Palestine" in place of Israel.

In 2001, the UN-sponsored Durban Conference on Racism  was a festival of anti-Semitic propaganda replete with the Protocols of the Elders of Zion, cartoons of Jews dripping blood from their fangs and "Zionism is Racism" resolutions. To her credit, UN Human Rights Commissioner Mary Robinson, not a friend of Israel, condemned the conference.

At the heart of this activity, under the banner of the Question_of_Palestine, a special Division for Palestinian Rights (DPR)  wages a tireless battle against the legitimacy of the state of Israel, sponsoring anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic events

Fair play demands that the UN abolish the DPR and take steps to ensure that Israel is treated as an equal. Please sign the petition below.

Fair Play for Israel at the United Nations

To the Secretary General of the United Nations, US Ambassador to the United Nations and EU Ambassador to the United Nations:

We, the undersigned, are concerned that the UN has been subverted for decades into an instrument to persecute a member state, Israel. This violates charter guarantees of equality for all states and detracts from the ability of the UN to function as a fair and impartial mediator in the Middle East. Precious Secretariat resources for human rights are diverted into one conflict and one problem out of many.

We insist that Israel be given equal treatment with all countries at the UN.

The UN Human Rights Commission, even after reform, issues endless condemnations of Israel, supported by notorious human rights violators such as Libya, Cuba, Iran, and Syria.

Israel is the only state that for decades was not part of a regional group and could not participate in UN bodies and consultations, and its membership is still restricted.

One of the seven Secretariat divisions for the entire world is a separate Division for Palestinian Rights. There is no separate division for any country or any other issue. There is no division for women's rights or basic freedoms, and no separate divisions for Tibet, Cyprus, West Sahara or other crisis areas.

Notorious examples of UN sponsored anti-Zionist and anti-Semitic NGO activities abound. They include the odious Durban conference that condemned Zionism as "Racism." A conference in Cairo supported the Hamas government and tried to  torpedo efforts to force the Hamas to recognize Israel and participate in conflict resolution.

The Division for Palestinian Rights (DPR) and the committees it controls conduct an unrelenting  campaign against Israel. The DPR fosters Non-Government Organizations (NGOs) that promote racism and attempts to impede peace efforts.

These activities and related anti-Israel initiatives have damaged the credibility of the UN as a force for peace and a neutral mediator.

We call on the UN to abolish the Division for Palestinian Rights and the associated Special Committee to Investigate Israeli Human Rights  Practices Affecting the Palestinian People and Other Arabs of the Occupied Territories (SCIIHRP) and the Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People (CEIRPP).

Likewise, we call on the UN to complete the reform of the UN Human Rights Commission and correct its anti-Israel bias,  and to allow the integration of Israel into the UN as an equal member which can serve in all UN institutions and committees.

The Palestinian state issue is not an issue anymore. They have continually undermined the peace process and can not give peace and safty to the Palestinian people. Hamas has shown it's self to be a war mongering group who has caused caos and disention in the territory Israel gave to the Palestinians with the hope that they could show the world what a Palestinian state would be like. It has shown that it is a caotic lawless government that threatens the palestinian people. All of it's failures they blame on Israel and Zionism. What a joke. They bame every problem they have on Israel and the Jewish people. They at present do not deserve to become a state. No country wants to be it's neighbor. Israel has NO partner for peace. That is a joke. Any partner who will not even recognize the other's existance is a not entity and deserves the caotic existance they have created. Israel must set it's boundries NOW rather than wait for something to happen for the Palestinians they are incapable of.

Please get rid of the bigoted anti-semetic factions and please make cognitive decisions based in truth honesty not irational thinking..Zionism is NOT racism. It never was and never will be. Only anti-semetic bigoted people can conger up such dispicable things they attribute to Jews and Zionism and say anything that will in their minds damage the public opinion of Israel Zionism and the Jewish people. Islamic fundamentalists are filled with hate and are against any democratic people because the fundamentalist Muslims are a hateful avengeful people who cause desention and hate around the world. That has been proven. Why does it continue to occur in the UN?
