"We will NOT allow the UN and her gang of Israel haters to target Israel unjustly," state the rally organizers. "NO MORE Anti-Israel documents or resolutions! The UN's attempt to revise and erase Jewish history is deplorable. We call on the UN to focus on REAL issues such as Syrian Genocide and Global Islamic Terror instead of vilifying Israel unjustly." - David Israel in The Jewish Press 12 Jan '17

Some 5,000 demonstrators gathered outside the Permanent Mission of France to the United Nations in New York on Thursday to express their support for Israel ahead of an international conference on Middle East peace set to be held on Sunday.
The gathering was sponsored by the North American Coalition for Israel, which is made up of more than 50 organizations. Under the banner “Shame on the UN,” public figures, clergy members and victims of terrorist attacks gathered together with members of the Jewish community, demanding that the United Nations “immediately cease its unjust targeting of Israel and focus on real issues such as Syrian Genocide and Global Islamic Terror.”
