Board of Deputies congratulates Government for opposing anti-Israel motions at UN

Board of Deputies President Jonathan Arkush has congratulated the UK Government for voting against two anti-Israel motions at the United Nations.
He said: “Once again, countries with the worst of human rights records have sought to pass motions that abuse the platform of the United Nations by attacking Israel and attempting to distract from their own disgraceful conduct. We are proud of the UK Government for honouring its promise to ‘call time’ on this by voting against two of these motions and abstaining on another. It is time that the UN became a place of truth and fairness, not a den of lies and bias, and it is good to see the UK leading the way on this.”
