The UN’s 70th anniversary is a time to celebrate the important accomplishments of this institution’s past, but the ongoing double standards and delegitimization that Israel faces in these halls denigrates the core principles this institution was founded on.

"Every day, UN programs and personnel help to improve the lives of millions around the world by distributing food aid, protecting the environment, vaccinating children, and in countless other constructive capacities.

The UN’s 70th anniversary is a time to celebrate the important accomplishments of this institution’s past, but it is also an opportunity to reflect on the course we are charting as an organization today. Let us ask ourselves- are we living up to the ideals and commitments visualized by the Charter.

The ongoing double standards and delegitimization that Israel faces in these halls is not only harmful to the Jewish state, it denigrates the core principles this institution was founded on."
