A blog posted at UN Watch pointed out yesterday that the “UN General Assembly, acting through its Fourth Committee, which is comprised of all 193 UN member states, today adopted nine resolutions condemning Israel, and none on the rest of the world.”

One unfortunate interpreter left her mic on while saying to a colleague that “it is a bit much, no?”

Hillel Neuer of the Times of Israel writes,

“For by the end of its annual legislative session next month, the General Assembly will have adopted a total of 22 resolutions condemning Israel—and only four on the rest of the world combined. The hypocrisy, selectivity, and politicization are staggering.”

On a hot mic, an interpreter said in part,

“There’s other really bad sh*t happening, but no one says anything, about the other stuff…”

The poor girl realized that she was live, and quickly apologized. Hopefully she does not get fired.

The adopted resolutions are listed here.

The video is below (begins at around 1:55 minute mark):
