The United Nations Visitors Centre Facebook page posted an anti-Israel comment suggesting that Israel targets women and children. The snarky remark was apparently due to an “unauthorised login”, however, the explanation seems a little flimsy.

The anti-Israel comment appeared on a post about women at the UN promoting equality. An Israeli responded to the post by sharing a news story highlighting female IDF pilots.

The United Nations Visitors Centre responded asking, “how many Palestinian kids and women have those Israeli women bombarded from those planes so far? I’m curious to know. Please tell me a number that would make u proud”.

Israellycool, who broke the story, explains, “this is a pernicious blood libel, implying Israel targets Palestinian kids and women.”

The anti-Israel comment was removed and replaced with a message saying:

“Thank you for alerting us to this. A preliminary investigation has determined that this post was the result of unauthorized access to the VisitUN Facebook account and, as a result, the passwords were changed immediately.

The language in the deleted the post was unacceptable and offensive. It does not reflect the values of the United Nations. Moreover, the UN Visitors Centre places a great deal of emphasis on making sure the doors of the United Nations are open, whether in person or virtually, for everyone.”

The excuse by the centre seems a little confusing. There was no widespread action taken on the account to suggest a hacking had taken place as this was the only incident.

It could have been a case of a worker for the centre made the comment out of emotion, or accidentally made the comment from the page’s account instead of their own personal account. Another theory is that a friend or family member of a UN worker used that person’s login to make the comment. Which could explain the “unauthorized login”.

We are unlikely to discover the truth in this instance. Sadly, it is unsurprising that the United Nations, the epicentre of global anti-Semitism, would have staff who have such anti-Israel views. And because those views are so present within the organisation, it is no wonder they sometimes show themselves on the surface in these ways.
