Shameful Moments in UNGA History: Arafat’s 1974 Address

With all eyes turned towards the 72nd session of the UN General Assembly (UNGA) and President Donald Trump’s first appearance and address, now seems like a good time to remind you of one of the most deplorable moments in UNGA history.

On November 13th, 1974, arch terrorist Yasser Arafat was granted the honor to address the UNGA. He did so while wearing a gun holster. And although some, like the BBC, like to describe his speech as “advocating peace”, he was really threatening more violence if the establishment of a palestinian state would not take place.

Almost exactly a year later, on November 10th, 1975, the UNGA adopted the infamous “Zionism is a form of racism and racial discrimination” resolution.

And they’ve continued to be a wretched hive of scum and villainy ever since.
