PM praises UN interpreter criticizing attacks on Israel

UN Human Rights session slams Israel in slew of resolutions. UN Interpreter forgets microphone on, calls nine resolutions condemning Jewish State 'a bit too much' earning her praise from Netanyahu

There aren't many moments of satisfaction for the State of Israel on the international political stage, but there was a small victory when a UN interpreter made a comment on the biased treatment that Israel was receiving in a human rights conference, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday morning.

Netanyahu referred to the slip of tongue, which occurred last Thursday night in one of the UN human rights conferences in New York. There were nine decisions condemning Israel out of the ten that were approved during the conference.



The interpreter called the resolutions a bit too much, and that "there's other really bad s--- happening, but no one says anything about the other stuff," before realizing that the microphone had been turned on.


In a government session, Netanyahu showed the video to the ministers and said: "I hope that nothing will happen to the interpreter, but to remove any doubt, I can guarantee her work in Israel if there's any development in that area. Sometimes, all at once, it's possible to tear up the hypocrisy of their non-stop attacks against us, and this brave interpreter did just that."
