Israeli Deputy FM calls on UN to stop using the term ‘occupation’

MEMO | June 9, 2017

Israeli Deputy Foreign Minister, Tzipi Hotovely, has called on the United Nations to stop using the term “occupation” in reference to Israel’s control over Palestinian lands.

The senior official claimed that the international organisation has been lured to repeating the “Palestinian propaganda vocabulary” and claimed that Israel does not occupy the land of anyone.

“As a proof, this year marks the 50th anniversary of Israel’s liberation of Jerusalem and the West Bank,” she claimed.

Hotovely’s remarks came in response to UN Secretary-General, Antonio Guterres, who accused the Israeli occupation of putting more burdens on the Palestinians and preventing them from developing.

The Israeli politician has called on the UN chief to reform what she called the distortion in the United Nations terms and to retract his statements.

“These are facts on the ground,” she said, adding that the term occupation was invented by the Palestinian propaganda machine, and it is very regrettable that the United Nations is being drawn to echo and use it in its speech and literature.

When the international organisation stops using distorted and false terms such as “occupation”, confidence will be restored in it as an institution established for justice and truth.

  2. Are the West Bank, Jerusalem and Gaza all parts of Israel, then? In that case, their inhabitants must be Israeli citizens.

  4. Cut their foreign aid, vote all Zionist out of office in the next election cycle. It’s amazing that Jimmy Carter was the last president to stand up to Israel. What a bunch of wimps we have in office…

    • The USA MUST bring to an end, the “UNDUE INFLUENCE” that Israel has over it. Cancel ALL dual citizenships, and make everyone in high office accountable to the President, and NOT the CIA, AIPAC, or other Security organizations.
      People in High Office MUST pledge allegiance to the USA and be accountable if they don’t.
      Use the $30+Billion/ year you give Israel and use the funds to pay down govt debt.
      Please have this done by Friday next week…….
