UN accredits NGO whose head is ‘glad to be labeled anti-Semitic’

Decision to recognize organization chaired by Malaysia’s former PM ‘comes as no surprise at all,’ Foreign Ministry says

By RAPHAEL AHREN, the diplomatic correspondent at The Times of Israel, August 5, 2013.…

The United Nations committee dedicated to Palestinians’ rights accredited a nongovernmental organization headed by the former prime minister of Malaysia,
Mr. Mahathir Mohamad – a controversial figure who at the time has accused George Soros’ Jewishness for the Asian monetary crisis. He said now he is “glad” to be called an anti-Semite, sparking protests by pro-Israel groups. Things like these make it impossible to have the UN as part of any Peace in the Middle East negotiations – even though it might eventually be possible to bring in the UN as part of a Peace-Keeping clearly mandated function.
