The UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) is expected to publish a report equating “the Israeli Occupation” to slavery in the U.S and put the financial damages suffered by Palestinians as a result of “50 years of occupation” in the billions of dollars.

The Arab-dominated committee recently published a report two weeks ago claiming that Israel established an Apartheid regime that controls the entire Palestinian people. The report set off a firestorm leading to the resignation of its author, UN Under-Secretary-General Rima Khalaf.

Committee members are currently in the process of publishing a new report that will attempt to draw comparisons between Israeli actions and the period of slavery in the U.S.

The report is expected to be published next month, coinciding with the anniversary of the Six Day War.

Israeli Ambassador to the UN, Danny Danon, is currently working with senior officials in the UN to thwart the report’s publication.

According to Danon, “This is another disgraceful attempt using Rima Khalaf’s anti-Semitic playbook to make false claims against Israel. Just as we were successful in canceling the first report, we will also fight against these lies.”
