Israeli Wins UN Job Via Secret Ballot

The United Nations Human Rights Council

It seems that the only way for Israel to advance in the UN is for the Arabs to not know which countries support it.

Mordechai Amihai was elected as Vice-Chair of the UN’s fourth committee, also known as the Special Political and Decolonization Committee.

The unusual decision to hold a secret ballot was made after the Arab states protested Amihai’s nomination and, quite strangely, demanded the vote be secret, presuming they would do better that way.

Amihai received 79 votes, 34 more than required to win the seat.

Amihai’s appointment, which by itself would be a blow to the Arab states who try to keep Israel off of all UN committees, is an even larger blow, as this committee deals with decolonization, Palestinian refugees and human rights, peacekeeping, mine action, outer space, public information, atomic radiation and University for Peace.

  1. :-D G-D work at work!!!

  2. congratulation for the united nations who gave israel the jews state to organise a proper integrated state of israel for all arabs who has no place in their own countries no separate country for another muslim state.

  3. Run Guo says:

    At least it is a small good news

  4. This shows the cowardice and ineffectiveness of the UN, that they had to have a secret ballot. When will any country stand up to the Muslims and their threats of throwing a tantrum if anyone opposes them?

  5. This news is very pleasing. I can only hope that he is a Jewish patriot and not from the Israeli left such as Meretz.

  6. Shira Levin says:

    Mazel tov to Amahai. I also hope he is an Israeli patroit.

  7. Mazel Tov.In the mean time, I pray that he is not a leftist like Livni and is not going to work against Israel. G-d help us.

  8. Hayley Rivka Heskiel says:

    Believe it or not, I think some of the Arab countries wanted to vote for Israel but would never be able to do so publicly. By keeping it secret they can pretend it wasn't them.
