Israeli President Reuven Rivlin called on the United Nations Wednesday to define red lines beyond which an intervention would be necessary to stop acts of genocide. “Cynical” accusations of genocide and war crimes against Israel harm the UN’s ability to fight the real thing, he said at the assembly’s annual ceremony marking International Holocaust Remembrance Day. He then added “at the same time we must remember that the setting of red lines requires us to stop diluting and cynically exploiting them in the name of pseudo objectivity, as is done in the rhetoric of human rights with the use of terms such as ‘genocide’ for political purposes.”…
Citing the “shameful” UN resolution 3379, that equated Zionism with “its greatest enemy” racism, Rivlin said that “nonetheless, absurd comparisons such as this one, which we as Israelis are exposed to constantly… not only confuse the ally with the enemy, but they undermine this house’s ability to effectively fight the phenomenon of genocide.”
