Graham: UN Becoming ‘Anti-Semitic’


Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) on Sunday accused the United Nations of anti-semitism over the Human Rights Council’s decision to investigate whether Israel violated international law during its ground operation in Gaza.

“I would, when it came to Israel, condemn the UN Human Rights report that holds Israel responsible for the activity here,” Graham said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “The UN Human Rights report is a joke. The UN is becoming more anti-Israeli, anti-Semitic.”

Graham said that he, along with other senators, will “push back against this report.”

The UN has not officially accused Israel of war crimes, but Navi Pillay, the UN high commissioner for human rights, said that Israel might not be doing enough to protect civilians in Gaza.

“There seems to be a strong possibility that international law has been violated, in a manner that could amount to war crimes,” Pillay said earlier this week.
