UN Secretary-General: Denying Israel’s Right to Exist Is Anti-Semitism


UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres told a UNESCO conference on anti-Semitism on Wednesday: “Jews continue to be attacked for no other reason than their identity.”

He added, “Where there is anti-Semitism, there are likely to be other discriminatory ideologies and forms of bias – feeding each other in a cauldron of contempt….Anti-Semitism threatens all people’s human rights.

“In more recent times, it is expressing itself in attempts to delegitimize the right of Israel to exist, including calls for its destruction, using the pretext of the situation in the Middle East to target Jews and Jewish symbols….All of us have a duty to fight back.”



  1. and the UN SG says this on the same day that Naftali Bennett an Israeli minister repeats his denial of Palestine’s right to exist. He’s nothing to say about that I suppose ?
    “The president of the US is a true friend of Israel. However, it must be emphasised that… there will not be a Palestinian state. That would be a disaster for Israel,” he said https://www.independent.co.uk/news/world/middle-east/trump-middle-east-peace-plan-palestinians-israel-iran-syria-us-a8557626.html
