....firstly the UN is not a government or a country, the opinions and actions of the UN are the result of consensus of all of its member countries. Secondly, Israel may be a democracy within its 67' borders, but where is Israeli democracy in the West Bank and Gaza? And I'm not making some bleeding-heart liberal point here, but Israel rules the West Bank and rules the ins and outs of Gaza, yet the people there have no vote in who is elected in Israel. So basically Israel has territory in the West Bank and Gaza, yet denies the people living there (with the notable exception of settlers) a vote, or even a voice. So yes Israel does have aspects of democracy, but there are 5 million people denied that democracy. Again, this is simply the relaying of a genuine fact on the ground, not a political point, so until Israel either relinquishes its rule of the West Bank and Gaza, or gives its residents the vote, it cannot be legitimately labelled a democracy.
