Danon: Anti-Israel activists do not belong in the UN

Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon on Friday welcomed the resignation of Under-Secretary General and Executive Secretary of the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) Rima Khalaf. 

Khalaf had earlier announced her resignation after backlash over ESCWA’s report which labeled Israel an “apartheid state”. UN Secretary-General Antonio Gutteres demanded the report be removed from ESCWA’s website, and Khalaf subsequently stepped down.
