1. fat chance
Barney ,   USA   (12.04.12)
worry about wmd in syria and iran. Israel isn't bothering anybody
2. Just Say No
Ron ,   OC, USA   (12.04.12)
The UN will never be on Israel's side for any reason. Never have, never will.
3. The UN can stuff it where the sun don't shine
Yitzi ,   Beit Shemesh   (12.04.12)
4. Those resolution always feature call to US and rest
Miron ,   USA   (12.04.12)
of nations who keep significant nuclear facilities off charts... UN is voting those annually. But untill this year AP seemed to hold itself to a slightly different standard of reporting on what happened, instead of taking an piece of mundain UN paperwork and presenting it as Israel sort of issue. What happened?
5. Peace and stability in our region?
Sherlock Holmes ,   London England   (12.04.12)
So, if Israel eliminates its self-defense, that will lead to peace and stability in the Middle East? Democracy and human rights barely exist in a meaningful way in the Islamic Middle East, and Israel's nuclear warheads have nothing to do with that. Israel is less than one percent of the size of the Islamic world and needs a deterrent.
6. UN is a waste of time...
Ivan ,   South Africa   (12.04.12)
They should create better jobs for their staff and stop using Israel as a scapegoat...
7. Insane world asks Israel to commit suicide, NEVER AGAIN.
Bunnie Meyer ,   Los Angeles, CA USA   (12.04.12)
8. Syrian diplomat says his govt is angry...
Joseph ,   London UK   (12.04.12)
I would have thought Pres Assad's govt has bigger problems to worry about, not least its own stock pile of chemical weapons falling into the hands of terrorists. The Baath Party of Assad and Saddam Hussein began its life as the pro-Hitler Arab Party.
9. Obama is behind this!
J1 ,   Earth   (12.04.12)
10. Certainly not!
Mira ,   Vienna   (12.04.12)
The atomic arsenal of Israel is the only really life insurance for Israel and they wouldbe stupid to give it away.
11. Middle East
Jacques VITENBERG ,   France   (12.04.12)
What is Middle East? Pakistan is Middle East? Pakistan-Talibans-Iran-Hetzbollah Thank you!
12. Israel already has most GA resolutions in the world whats
zionist forever   (12.04.12)
Considering we already have the most General Assembly resolutions in the entire world whats the big deal about adding another one to our collection. Israel has legally taken a decision not to sign up to the NPT which means nobody can order Israel to open its nuclear sites to anybody. Certainly not the UN operating on behalf of the arabs looking for their nuclear free region where very conveniently their enemy is the only country that has nukes. Do we have anymore important issues to discuss with the UN right now, I believe Bibi wanted the UN it to rain only when he wants it to.
13. and why is that?
nadav ,   tlv   (12.04.12)
People should ask WHY the ARABS and Muslim countries want Israel to disarm the one arsenal (it may) have to deter the Arabs and Iran from fulfilling their dream of genocide of Israel and the Jews! We will NEVER surrounded our right to defend ourselves and deter our sworn enemies. The UN, led by fanatic Muslim and Arab states can eat its heart out!
14. Fortunately ....
Sarah B ,   U.S.A. / Israel   (12.04.12)
.... Israel does not take its marching orders from the morally bankrupt and pahetic United Nations. They can pass a resolution that the moon is blue, and Israel is responsible. That's far more legitimate than any of the resolutions they have passed to point. The United Nations can go to hell in a handcart. No one would miss them, certainly not New Yorkers such as myself.
15. NUclear Israel
Israel should have nuclear weapons warning to the Islamic countries that if you thing you can destroy Israel, also Israel can destroy all Islam. Once Israel gives up her real weapons, Islamic countries will try again & again to destroy Israel.
16. @10 how do you know they have one? Saw?
Miron ,   USA   (12.04.12)
or is that another "blood drinking" story. The troubling is demeanor of the US media press organ. This sort of demented Anti - Israel / Anti - Semite bias in press is neither normal nor should be tolerated. AP should report instead of spin doctoring information to blackmail.
17. Once again the US is on the WRONG SIDE
spyguy ,   seattle usa   (12.04.12)
Obama said Monday his number one agenda item is the reduction of nuclear material, YET he votes against this resolution. What a hypocrite. BTW - Israel just keeps racking up the negative points and making the US more powerless. Every time the US backs Israel it gives more power to China which is increasingly seen as a global leader and champion of oppressed people..
18. UN
joan allan ,   New Zealand   (12.04.12)
A very reasonable comment would be 'GET LOST' - The UN never does anything to aid Israel and is an extremely corrupt organization that is only interested in satisfying the demands of the Arabs and is intent on giving them more of Jewish land along with the Holy City. All those who love Israel should be holding Bibi in strong prayer day and night. As for Peace Now and their ilk it is far time they got down on their unsupportive knees and united with their brethren instead of firing up the enemy. This is not the time to mess around.
19. Nuclear power??
Ros ,   Tel Aviv   (12.04.12)
Israel gave up communities for peace and nothing happened except gave the arabs more "space" to send rockets from - it is time the UN stopped condemning Israel for eveything - let Iran open up their nuclear arsenal first!!!!
20. So Predictable!!!
Jake Stone ,   USA: Go Israel!   (12.04.12)
Another resolution against Israel, while the godless Muslims' get away with murder! The UN has no legitimacy whatsoever; their whining little cries makes my disdain for them even greater, as it should any reasonable thinking person! And, as far as Israel allowing ANYONE to see their nuclear complex: yeah, good luck...with that one--you anti-Semitic idiots! God bless, Israel; praying for the peace of Jerusalem (UN and godless Muslims not wanted)!
21. "...that carry moral and political weight..."
Taz Man ,   USA   (12.04.12)
Are you kidding me: the UN political process is one-sided, thus a sham; it's moral compass is so screwed-up...they have no moral integrity. They are a bunch of godless, anti-Semitic FOOLS who can't scratch their own arses' without passing a meaningless resolution! As Netanyahu once said: "The theater of the absurd!" He's right! All they are...are a bunch of ignorant clowns; little girlie boys! May God judge these women dressed-up like men!
22. Nuclear inspection
jn ,   Israel   (12.04.12)
Israel is not a country which threatens other countries with its nuclear boms. Why do you not go after Iran which threatens the whole Middle East and sspecially Israel. As usual the UN points the finger on Israel because it is an easy target and very popular to acuse.
23. The inmates are running the asylum (the UN)
Rhonda ,   Chicago, usa   (12.04.12)
Guess they couldn't get Iran to cooperate so now they come after Israel...the only country over there that hasn't threatened to annihilate a neighbor.
24. 17
zionist forever   (12.04.12)
Obama has been doing his best to disarm Israel since 2008 he just needs to find the right moment and excuse because he knows neither Congress or the Jewish voters who will be deciding who to vote for at the coming congressional elections, he wants to have Democrats in control again to rubber stamp his policies like he had first time. He has though been holding lots of discussions with arabs and the rest of the world about having a nuclear free Middle East. Once Congress have had their elections and he has raised taxesI think we can expect him to start showing his true colours again and give Israel hell and probably go back to Muslim outreach.
DANNY TAWIL ,   ENNGLAND   (12.04.12)
26. it is the old christ-killer argument
gingimax ,   istanbul   (12.04.12)
however, if christ hadn't had been 'killed by the jews', he could have never risen (the main theme for in the christian doctrine). ju(ew)das was a necessity, as are the ju(ew)das' of today. the world always needs someone to blame and pick on, i pity the planet when the jews are all gone.
27. # 17
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (12.04.12)
Everytime we buy a product made in China it makes us more powerless. Every U.S. job that goes to China makes us more powerless. Israel isn't the problem. The world needs only to look at Tibet to see what sort of champion of oppressed people China is.
28. Deal with the Iran problem first!
Moshico ,   Jerusalem   (12.04.12)
The UN are a load of cowards.
29. Gingimax # 26
Eaglebeak ,   Left Coast, USA   (12.04.12)
I suppose they could go back to blaming Bush.
TONY ,   NIGERIA   (12.04.12)
Israel, brace up and stand tall. Be courageous. More are still coming. All in an attempt to unseat Benjamin Natanyahu
