'Hatred of Israel is growing'

Sunday, July 11, 2010 |  Israel Today Staff  

Outgoing Israeli Ambassador to the UN Gabriela Shalev on Sunday warned that hatred of Israel in the halls of the United Nations is reaching a peak.

"Our situation in recent months can be compared to the 1970s, when Zionism was being called racism," Shalev said in an interview with Army Radio.

Shalev said UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is still determined to impose an international commission of inquiry into Israel's forcible interception of a Turkish-led flotilla that tried to break Israel's maritime blockade of Gaza on May 31. That despite the fact that most Western powers have accepted Israel's internal investigation, which is being overseen by three respected international observers.
