Jewish leaders demand UN chief reject 'apartheid' report

Leaders of the Conference of Presidents of Major American Jewish Organizations on Wednesday called on United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres to publicly reject a UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) report accusing Israel of being “an apartheid regime that dominates the Palestinian people as a whole.”

Stephen M. Greenberg, Chairman and Malcolm Hoenlein, Executive Vice Chairman/CEO of the Conference of Presidents said, “This latest outrage perpetrated against Israel by a UN body must not be allowed to stand. Richard Falk and Rima Khalaf are serial purveyors of anti-Israel calumnies who abuse their official UN positions to launch unjustified and outrageous attacks on Israel.”
