UN Blacklist Targets Israeli Companies

"Evildoers will bow down in the presence of the good, and the wicked at the gates of the righteous." Prov. 14:19

The UN Human Rights Council last week published a blacklist of companies operating in Israeli settlements throughout Judea & Samaria, East Jerusalem, and the Golan Heights, accusing them of raising "particular human rights concerns". The industrial areas of Judea & Samaria employ close to 20,000 Palestinian workers. Many Palestinians hold senior positions and earn up to four times the salaries paid in the Palestinian Authority. Workers also receive the same health benefits, sick leave and vacation time as Israelis. The anti-Israel obsession of the UNHRC is indeed a manifestation of anti-Semitism. The 112 total companies on the list had not even been given prior notice of their presence on it before its release. Only eighteen of the companies on the list were international companies such as Airbnb, Motorola, and Expedia, while ninety-four of them were Israeli companies that include a wide range of banking and construction businesses. Anne Herzberg, UN liaison at NGO Monitor said the list indicated that the UN had “officially decided to endorse the anti-Semitic Boycott, Divestment & Sanctions movement by issuing a defamatory list of companies it says are involved in ‘settlement activity,'" claiming it had been created "in conjunction" with anti-Israel organizations.
