In my role as Minister in the Israeli governments, I have been involved in the fight against anti-Semitism and BDS, and I am closely familiar with the anti-Israel bias that has existed at the UN for decades.

Despite this, I chose to begin my mission as UN Ambassador determined to fight for the good name of the State of Israel, clear the corridors of the organization of hatred of Israel, and act against the “automatic majority” that is not destined. I believe now that Arab countries recognize peace with Israel The Iranian is exposed almost daily – one can struggle to achieve these goals.

As soon as I arrived in New York, I worked alongside our friends in the US administration to restore the sanctions lifted from Iran as part of the nuclear deal. The profits of the agreement since 2015 have funded, fueled and armed Iran’s terrorist arms in Syria, Yemen, Libya, Gaza and of course Lebanon. Was expected by the UN, as an organization that engraved on its banner the pursuit of peace and security, to join the struggle against the world’s largest terrorist regime, which also continues to openly express its desire to destroy the State of Israel.

Unfortunately, the Security Council chose excuses instead of actions. As Iran executes anti-government protesters including wrestler Navid Afri, a sweeping majority of council members, alas, oppose the US move against Iran and in effect award a reward for its murderous behavior. There is no clearer proof than this of the disconnect between the theoretical UN Charter and its failed implementation in reality.

UN member states are required to “be tolerant and live together in peace with each other as good neighbors,” the UN Charter explicitly states. Despite this, when, after decades, peace agreements are signed between three countries that want peace – the UN and its institutions are silent! UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres chose to focus on the opening of the 75th General Assembly in peace talks in Sudan, Afghanistan and elsewhere. Others around the world, ignoring the normalization agreements that have changed the Middle East, the conflict areas in the world. Thus, the UN returned to slogans detached from reality and repeatedly mentioned the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, as part of the anti-Israel show that has taken place there for years.

While budgeting for bodies that perpetuate the culture of lies, such as UNRWA, and while fleeing from preoccupation with issues critical to world peace – the UN risks losing its relevance and legitimacy. If the organization can not act against the worst in the regimes and continues to cling to the Palestinian obsession, in 75 years there will no longer be a UN here to mark its birthday, because it will simply lose its right to exist.

The prestigious and inflated organization, which arose after the terrible Holocaust we experienced and after World War II that claimed an inconceivable blood price, must recalculate a route. The Prime Minister’s speech today at the UN General Assembly will proudly present the achievements of Israel and its central place in the world today, and the time has come for the UN to reflect this in its institutions. I will fight for it with all my might and I believe that if the UN wants to be a relevant body, it must express a fair and balanced attitude towards Israel.
