Speaking in Arabic, Druze Diplomat Scolds Anti-Israel UN Assembly

Arabic-speaking Druze diplomat blasts anti-Israel accusations from Syria’s UN representative

By Israel Today Staff |

Nizar Amer, Israel’s Counselor for Economic and Social Affairs at the UN, laid into Syria’s representative for accusing Israel of human rights violations.

Amer noted the hypocrisy of such an accusation coming from a member of the Syrian regime, which has killed well over 100,000 of its own citizens in recent years.

He, as an Arabic-speaking citizen of Israel, went on to note that minorities live very well in the Jewish state.
