From the Jerusalem Post:
PARIS – French and Israeli dignitaries gathered at the National Assembly’s Victor Hugo Amphitheater on Wednesday, to commemorate 40 years since then-Israeli envoy to the UN Chaim Herzog delivered a historic speech to the General Assembly, condemning the UN’s resolution that said Zionism is racism.
In this speech in November 1975, Herzog symbolically tore up a copy of General Assembly Resolution 3379, pushed through by the Soviet and Arab blocs.
There are many reasons to remember this black day in history.
One, for example, is to mark the wisdom and force of Herzog’s words:
“For us, the Jewish people, this resolution based on hatred, falsehood and arrogance, is devoid of any moral or legal value. For us, the Jewish people, this is no more than a piece of paper and we shall treat it as such…”
Another reason, is to have it in mind when any anti-Israel person mouths off about Israel being in breach of UN resolutions. That 40 year old resolution underlines, emphasizes and clearly demonstrates the moral bankruptcy that, sadly all too often, is at the heart and soul of the UN’s planning, decisions, and resolutions.
