Palestinians and fellow Muslim countries have lashed out a UN decision to elect Israel as the chairman of one of its permanent committees for the first time in the history of Israeli occupation.

Danny Danon, Israel’s representative at the United Nations, was elected Monday to head the world body’s Legal Committee also called the Sixth Committee, which oversees issues related to international law.

It is the first time that Tel Aviv will head one of the world body’s six permanent committees since joining the United Nations in 1949.

Danon’s election, however, elicited angry reactions from Muslim countries, including those in the Arab League and 57 member states of the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC).

The chief Palestinian delegate at the UN, Riyad Mansour, strongly denounced the results of the election, saying it is “threatening the work of the Sixth Committee.”

Mansour said the Israeli regime has long been “the biggest violator of international law.”

The General Assembly has six standing committees that report to it on several issues, including human rights, decolonization, disarmament, economic and financial issues, as well as the UN budget and legal issues.

Danon was nominated for the position by the Western European and Others Group (WEOG) in the UN. Israel has been a temporary member of the WEOG since 2000, but joined the group permanently in December 2013.

  1. That is very significant!

    • Ambassador Danon said he believes that Israel is well equipped to lead the Legal Committee, noting in a statement that the country is, “a world leader in international law and fighting terror.”

      lol..

  2. I’m no fan of Israel and, as far as I’m concerned, the UN needs to be abandoned to rot.
    But is there anything that does not anger Muslims?
