Six Facts That Differentiate Israel From All 194 UN Member States

It is represented globally by a political pressure group, the international Israel Lobby that exerts an undue influence over not only the US Congress but also the British Parliament and other national legislative assemblies: an influence that threatens democratic government. 

It has persuaded, through the use of financial inducements, 600,000 of its own citizens to leave their homes in Israel to illegally settle on Palestinian land in the Occupied West Bank, East Jerusalem and the Syrian Golan Heights in direct violation of U.N. Security Council Resolution 2334 which states unequivocally that ‘Israel’s Settlements Have No Legal Validity and Constitute a Flagrant Violation of International Law’.

It is the only United Nations state whose establishment was facilitated by UN Resolution in 1947/8, but which today rejects the authority of the very same international body that gave it self-determination.

It is the only undeclared and uninspected nuclear weaponised state anywhere in the world. It has an underground arsenal estimated to contain of up to 400 warheads that also arm a fleet of cruise missile -equipped submarines assumed to be covertly patrolling both the Mediterranean and the Gulf.

It has recently passed restrictive legislation that serves to designate 20% of its entire population who are Israeli Arabs, as second class citizens with their national language no longer officially recognised, thereby turning itself into the only neo-colonial, apartheid-style state of the 21st century.

There is no other nation state with WMD that is so arrogantly dismissive of world opinion or the authority of the United Nations. That state is also an integral part of the bizarre Netanyahu-Trump alliance that is now repudiating international treaties on trade, peace and goodwill that have served the international community well for over 70 years.  God help us all.
