Many of us who are avid supporters of Israel are used to lamenting over and over again the bias of the United Nations. The most recent occasion for these complaints was the vote of the General Assembly to change the status of Palestine at the U.N. to non-member observer state. On such occasions, it is often pointed out that if the Palestinians introduced a resolution stating that the earth is flat, they would be able to obtain a majority in the General Assembly. Such is the bias against Israel.
Real test, analysts say, will come at UN General Assembly session opening.
There were rays of optimism following Israeli-Palestinian peace talks Tuesday in Egypt, but the real test may come here next week when world leaders gather for the 65th session of the United Nations General Assembly.
