Netanyahu Offers U.N. Interpreter a Job in Israel

By: JTA

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Monday there will always be a job waiting in Israel for a United Nations interpreter caught wondering aloud at an excessive number of anti-Israel resolutions while her microphone was still on.

The interpreter’s remarks came during the Nov. 14 meeting of the United Nations General Assembly’s Fourth Assembly, attended by representatives of all 193 United Nations member states. Nine of the 10 resolutions adopted at the meeting condemned Israel.

“I mean I think when you have five statements, not five, but like a total of 10 resolutions on Israel and Palestine, there’s gotta be something, c’est un peu trop, non? [It’s a bit much, no?] I mean I know, yes, yes, but there’s other really bad s— happening, but no one says anything about the other stuff,” the interpreter said in English in remarks heard live by the delegates.

Amid titters of laughter from the delegates, the committee secretary states, “I understand there was a problem with the interpretation.”

Netanyahu splayed a recording of the remarks at the Cabinet meeting Sunday and said, “I would like to tell this interpreter that she has a job waiting for her in the State of Israel. There are moments that tear the hypocrisy off the unending attacks against us and this brave interpreter did so.”
