The UN’s Group of 77 was established in 1964 to assist the developing world with economic development and enhance their negotiating capacity. The group has now ballooned to 135 countries, representing 80 percent of the world’s population. However, the UN has decided to place a terrorist organization (the “Palestinian” Authority) at the head of the bloc. The “Palestinians” only have observer status at the UN. However, the UN was forced to make this absurd decision since their puppet masters at the Organization of Islamic Cooperation likely demanded the move. As a result of this decision, the Group of 77’s new primary focus will not be about advancing countries in the developing world. The new primary focus of the Group of 77 will be to slander Israel, at the expense of countries in the developing world.
It was recently announced by the UN that the developing world would require $4 trillion annually to maintain the world’s international development goals. In the last several years, Israel has steadily been deepening its involvement in the developing world, especially in Africa and Latin America, but also Asia and the Caribbean. According to the Israeli government, Israel has a “relative advantage” in five of the 17 fields (water management, advanced agriculture, health services, innovation, and energy) that have been designated by the UN as essential for developing countries in the years to come. As a result, developing countries from around the globe have been embracing Israel like never before. Prime Minister Netanyahu has made three trips to Africa in the last two years alone. In 2017, Prime Minister Netanyahu became the first Israeli Prime Minister to visit Latin America. In November of this year, Netanyahu will be making a second trip to Latin America, but this time to Guatemala for a regional meeting that will include a number of Central American leaders. Netanyahu has been invited to visit Brazil, a visit that will likely occur in 2019. In developing Asia, Israel’s relations with Thailand, Vietnam, Nepal, India, and others are also surging. All of this is happening because of Israel’s remarkable expertise in fields that are vital to poorer countries.
One would think that the UN would welcome Israel with open arms. Sadly, one who thought that would be wrong. Here is the problem. The anti-Semitic Organization of Islamic Cooperation, which has significant influence at the UN, will not support progress if the progress benefits Israel. The UN has unbelievably appointed a non-member terrorist organization that is an expert in nothing (other than terrorism, murder, gender apartheid, and racism; the “Palestinians” must be the most evil people on the planet) to head the bloc of developing countries. Naturally, this is being done to hurt Israel’s status in the developing world.
The savages at the Organization of Islamic Cooperation and the “Palestinian” Authority know that if Israel continues to gain support from the developing world (which will happen), the “Palestinians” are finished. The “Palestinians” will lose their “automatic majority” against Israel at the UN, since most countries will recognize and appreciate the significant value of Israel and its world-renowned technology. By allowing the “Palestinians” to lead the Group of 77, whose only purpose will be to slander Israel, and to prevent Israel’s technological expertise from reaching the billions of people who need it, the UN has once again shown that it is a total farce. Fortunately, this outrageous decision by the UN will not stop Israel’s surging relations with the developing world.
“Palestinians to Lead U.N.’s Biggest Bloc of Developing Countries,” by Rick Gladstone, New York Times,
The biggest bloc of developing countries at the United Nations has chosen the observer state of Palestine as its next leader, the Palestinian ambassador said Tuesday, a decision that could cause new tensions with Israel and the United States.
The ambassador, Riyad H. Mansour, said in a telephone interview that Palestine would take over leadership of the bloc, known as the Group of 77, from Egypt, starting in January.
Originally 77 countries when formed in 1964, the bloc’s membership has nearly doubled in size. The bloc often speaks as one voice in the General Assembly and represents more than 80 percent of the world’s population.
“We will be negotiating on behalf of 135 countries,” Mr. Mansour said, a total that would include his own delegation.
Symbolically at least, the choice of Palestine as the Group of 77’s leader is a diplomatic rejoinder to Israel and the United States in the protracted Israeli-Palestinian conflict, and a political advance for the Palestinians.
Israel and the United States, Israel’s most important ally, have argued that the status of the Palestinians at the United Nations does not mean that there is an independent state of Palestine, and that only direct negotiations between the Israelis and Palestinians can achieve such an outcome….
