"The Simon Wiesenthal Center (SWC) in Los Angeles publishes an annual list of the ten worst global antisemitic and anti-Israel incidents. In 2019, Christoph Heusgen, Germany's UN Ambassador, is in seventh place. Germany is currently a member of the UN Security Council. In its explanatory text, the SWC quoted an editorial from Germany's largest daily Bild.
Heusgen cast 16 anti-Israel votes at the UN in 2018, abstaining once. In 2019, he voted for nine anti-Israel resolutions, including one labelling Jerusalem's holiest sites as 'Palestinian Occupied Territory.' He abstained three times and opposed only one anti-Israel resolution.
In explaining one of his anti-Israel votes, Heusgen made a statement at the UN, which was both nonsensical and vile: 'We believe that international law is the best way to protect civilians and allow them to live in peace and security and without fear of Israeli bulldozers or Hamas rockets.'
In March 2019, Bild wrote a response to Heusgen's statement comparing Palestinian rockets with Israeli bulldozers. It said: 'This equivalence is pure malice. That in a week in which the Israeli population frequently had to flee for rocket shooting by Hamas terrorists. Referral to the bulldozers, however, is a measure which the Israeli government takes against illegal building which concerns mainly Palestinians, but also Israeli settlements.'...
The antisemitic votes by Germany at the UN must be seen in an even more negative light than those of other European countries. This, it goes without saying, is due to the country's genocidal crimes that included the murder of 6 million Jews, among them 1.5 million children, during the Holocaust - this a short time ago, in their grandfathers' generation..."
