Board of Deputies ‘deep disappointment’ at ‘biased and unbalanced’ UN Security Council resolution

Board  of Deputies President Jonathan Arkush has expressed ‘deep disappointment’ at a ‘biased and unbalanced’ UN Security Council resolution:

He said: “The UN has once again chosen to demonstrate its hostility to Israel. The Security Council resolution passed on Friday is destructive to peace because it encourages Palestinians to believe that they can maintain their refusal to come to the negotiating table.

“I note that the Security Council has been an utter failure in saving hundreds of thousands of lives in Syria.  It clearly thinks of Israel as an easier target.

“I am deeply disappointed that the UK Government failed to take the honourable course of exercising its power to veto a biased and unbalanced resolution.”
