UN Suspends Two Employees in Israel After Nookiegate

That’s right, I just coined the term nookiegate.

Two employees of the United Nations mission in Israel have been suspended without pay after a viral video featured a sex act in their official vehicle, as it drove down a major street in Tel Aviv.

The two men were identified as staff members of the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO), a military observer mission in Israel, and were placed on unpaid leave on Thursday.

The suspensions were appropriate “given the seriousness of the allegations of failing to observe the standards of conduct expected of international civil servants,” Stephane Dujarric, spokesman for the UN secretary general, told the BBC on Thursday.

Notice how the two men were suspended, which I assume means Casanova and the driver.

The woman was not a UN employee. I wonder whether she was a lover or “hired” for the occasion.

Either way, she was like Israel – being screwed by the UN.
