United Nations Secretary General Antonio Guterres spoke Wednesday at a high-level forum to combat hatred against Jews that was held on the sidelines of the General Assembly.

Guterres said that modern antisemitism expressed “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.”

Guterres further stated, “This is tribalism run amok. Not only are their vile views coming into the mainstream, but the mainstream unfortunately, sometimes, is coming to them.”

It’s a breath of fresh air to finally hear the top UN official issue a strong statement at a major public forum in support of Israel. With that said, we would like to see the truth about Israel positively transform every UN member nation and every individual affiliated with the UN.
