MK Shaked: UN Biased and Not Neutral

Member of Knesset Ayelet Shaked (Habayit Hayehudi-Jewish Home) urged students at Tel Aviv University, Sunday, to join the Im Tirtzu and Yisrael Sheli Zionist groups and to try to organize other right-wing groups dealing in level-headed Zionist propaganda. Speaking at an Im Tirtzu event, the former Yisrael Sheli chairwoman said, "The state of Israel is busy in a defensive program of public information instead of assertive and aggressive public information, and the time has come that we stop apologizing."

Regarding the United Nations and its relief works agency for Palestinian-Authority Arabs, MK Shaked said, "The U.N. is a biased and not neutral body. For example, it has perpetuated the Palestinian refugees because of the considerations of UNRWA, and these considerations and others are related to interest groups." Referring to the breastplate of Aaron the high priest, she concluded, "We should not treat the UN assertions as if they were an oracle."
