UN Official: Criticism of Israel ‘a bit much’

General Assembly approves anti-Israel bill 160-6; translator wonders whether obsession with Israel isn't 'a bit much'.

The video below is from 2013. It was mistakenly put up now. But demand to watch it is high, so we’re putting it back up.

Yet another United Nations official has been caught admitting that that world body’s obsession with Israel is “a bit much.” 

In the context of yet another anti-Israel General Assembly resolution (why, no, you ask! The ongoing slaughter in Syria wasn’t on the agenda today!), a translator in the assembly plenum said “I think when you have… like a total of ten 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… There’s other really bad s*** happening, but no one says anything about the other stuff.”

Have a listen. It’s well worth hearing the anonymous spokeswoman apologise at the end. And, for those people keeping score, the vote passed 160-6 (with five abstentions).
which passed, with 160 ayes, 6 nays and 5 abstentions)
