    Israel's always crying foul about something. For God sakes, they could be the richest and most prosperous country in the world, and they'll still complain. In regards to the UN Resolution that condemned Zionism and equated it with racism, why is Israel worried? Since Israel's creation, there have been over 80 U.N. Resolutions condemning Israeli practices against the Palestinians. Shoot, how can anyone forget UN Resolution 194 which Israel signed only after promising the U.N. that all the Palestinian refugees would be allowed to return back to their homes? Enough said, Isreal can cry, rant, and rave all they want about this world supposedly hating them because it's a Jewish state, but that's false. Israel's not respected within the world community because of it's violations of UN Resolutions repeatedly. I'm not saying the U.N. is a model organization neither, they sure do have their problems, just as every government does, and plenty of Arab governments need a face lift, however it is within the legal boundaries to continue condemning Isreal for its violations against Palestinians.
