President Rivlin to UN Chief Guterres: Stop Discrimination Against Israel President Rivlin to UN Chief Guterres: Stop Discrimination Against Israel

He says that he believes "the horror of the Holocaust should be such that anti-Semitism should now be dead forever".

UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres has warned that anti-Semitism remains "alive and well" in today's world and has vowed to combat all forms of racism and bigotry.

In his remarks, Rivlin called on Guterres "to work to end the discrimination against Israel" at the United Nations, while also thanking him for "brave leadership" on the issue.

"It is imperative to ramp up pressure on Israel to abide by worldwide law that ensures that Palestinians' rights are protected and Israeli aggressions are halted", Al-Ghanim said.

At the start of a meeting in Al-Quds with UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, Netanyahu accused Iran of turning Syria into a "base of military entrenchment as part of its declared goal to eradicate Israel". Netanyahu added that the United Nations is in charge of peace, but it allows Palestinian hatred to flourish in its institutions. "These actions weaken cooperation between states and are against the rule of law", he said.

"As we witness a new wave of shocking and risky racism, the entire world must stand up and unequivocally denounce anti-Semitism", Danon stated during the visit.

United States asks if Iran military sites to be checked under nuclear deal
The US Senate had voted to impose sanctions against Iran over its missile program as well as human rights violations in late July. Even before assuming office, Trump has lashed out at the nuclear deal, describing it as the "worst deal ever negotiated ".

"Although he sometimes does not agree with Israel's actions, he is still committed to finding ways to seek peace between Israel and the Palestinians", Rivlin said.

Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, who will meet with the Secretary-General on Monday, is expected to convey Israel's concerns regarding the potential for a permanent Iranian presence in Syria as well as Iran's reported plans to build missile factories in Lebanon.

Israeli deputy foreign minister Tzipi Hotovely told public radio on Sunday: "Haley was right".

Ron Prosor, Israel's former ambassador to the UN, called on Guterres to "be the man who changes the United Nations for the better".

Guterres' visit comes as the Security Council is due to vote on the extension of the UNIFIL mission on 30 January, initially for one year.

Israel's Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon greeted him upon his arrival. "Led by Nikki Haley, they have made clear that they will not tolerate bias against us and will no longer be giving an open check".
