“Zionism is racism” is an all-too-familiar refrain in certain communities today. But did you, or your students, know that this was an official UN resolution passed in 1975 and repealed in 1991? This video addresses the different countries who supported and opposed the resolution, and how it came to pass. It also explores the UN’s complicated relationship with Israel, from devising the Partition Plan that led to Israel’s establishment, to passing and retracting the Zionism is Racism resolution, to its numerous condemnations of Israel today. Why is the UN so focused on Israel?
