Palestinian Authority Applies for Entry Into Eight International Treaties at United Nations
By Geller Report Staff - on March 27, 2018

The Palestinian Authority filed paperwork with the United Nations requesting entry into eight global treaties.

And the United Nations, ever the anti-Israel body, is considering the requests.

If approved, this move would give the “Palestinian” people more voice in U.N. affairs, as well as more legitimacy with global leaders. And remember: The Palestinian Authority is led by a man who just went on an angry, anti-semitic rant against the Israelis — the latest in his ongoing angry, anti-semitic calls to wipe the Jewish state off the face of the map.

Giving Mahmoud Abbas more influence on the world stage is not good for America, not good for Israel.

And yet, the United Nations is seriously looking at applications that give him a larger presence, a louder voice in international politics.

The Algemeiner has more:

The Palestinian Authority has filed official requests this past week to join eight international treaties, including the UN’s International Convention against Apartheid in Sports and the Nuclear Non-Proliferation Treaty according to a report in Israel’s Hadashot news.

Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon said the latest attempt by the PA to raise its status within the international community and delegitimize Israel is a campaign to “establish facts on the ground by making detours and unilateral moves.”

In April 2014, the PA applied for membership to 15 international treaties, including the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women, the Fourth Geneva Convention and the UN Convention Against Corruption. Then UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon accepted the Palestinians entry into 10 of the treaties as non-state members. PA leader Mahmoud Abbas has vowed to apply to 22 international treaties, including 18 of the United Nations in December 2017, following the official recognition by US President Donald Trump of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel.

The most recent applications were reported just a day after the UN Human Rights Council adopted a slew of five resolutions in condemnation of Israel, including one which called on Israel to give the strategic Golan Heights to civil war-torn Syria. All of the resolutions were presented under “Agenda Item 7” by member countries of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation.

Israel is the only country that has a permanently dedicated agenda item at the council.
