Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations, Ron Prosor, on Tuesday slammed the world body for establishing an annual “International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People”.

In a speech to the UN General Assembly, Prosor pointed out that the PA continues to incite against Israel on a daily basis.

“While they seek solidarity, the Palestinians continue to educate an entire generation to hate Israel,” he said, adding that the UN resolution was "hypocritical”.

“The terrorism from the PA’s territories into Israel has doubled in the past year, and it's time to ask where is the solidarity with the victims of terrorism in Israel,” said Prosor.

Referring to the PA’s upgrade to the status of a non-member observer state in the UN on November of 2012, Prosor said that "a thousand UN resolutions will not change the historical truth about November 29, and that truth is that on the date Israel accepted the partition plan, and the Arab world responded by launching a war.”

The PA, he stressed, “continues to run away from critical decisions in the negotiations and only concerns itself with producing highly publicized events at the United Nations. This is a regular ritual that demonstrates that the UN serves as a rubber stamp for the whims of the Palestinians.”

Peace talks between Israel and the PA resumed last summer, but that has not stopped the PA from inciting against Israel in its media and in public speeches given by its officials. Many of these incidents have been reported by Arutz Sheva.

In one such incident, PA TV broadcast a crudely anti-Semitic program legitimizing violence against Jews in Judea and Samaria - who were stereotyped as violent thieves. The end of the program glorified the humiliation of a religious Jew by cutting off his peyote side-curls, in a scene chillingly reminiscent of Nazi anti-Jewish propaganda.

Other broadcasts included a re-run of a music video encouraging violence against Israelis, and the glorification of the murderer of 61 Israeli civilians on the official Facebook page of Abbas' Fatah party.

Last month, Prosor filed a complaint with the UN in the wake of a condolence letter sent by PA Chairman Mahmoud Abbas to the family of a terrorist who was responsible for a 2012 Tel Aviv bus bombing attack.

The terrorist, Mohammed Assi, was eliminated by IDF soldiers last week after holing up in a cave near Dolev, in the western Binyamin region.
