Lindsey Graham: United Nations Is 'Anti-Semitic'

Sunday on CNN’s “State of the Union,” Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) pointed to the latest actions of the United Nations and called the body “anti-Semitic.”

The South Carolina lawmaker condemned the United Nations for its so-called human rights report, saying, “The U.N. Human Rights report is a joke. The U.N. is becoming anti-Israeli, anti-Semitic. I would push back. Congress will do this.”

Last week the U.N. Human Rights Council voted to investigate Israel’s supposed violations of Palestinian’s human rights in Gaza.

The session, presided over by President Baudelaire Ndong Ella of Gabon, of the Islamic bloc of states (OIC), quickly descended into the world leaders repeatedly comparing Israel to the Nazis when the Representative from Algeria said “Gaza is a concentration camp.” 

The member from Tunisia claimed “Israel was born out of Jewish terrorism and is acting in Gaza like the Nazis.” and a Venezuela member said “Israel seeks to exterminate the Palestinian people.”
