Israel has requested the UN dismiss Rima Khalaf, currently serving as
the UN's under-secretary-general, for anti-Semitic statements she made
in an official report.
"The accusation that
Israel is conducting ethnic cleansing is the essence of modern
anti-Semitism and it is unforgivable," Israel's UN Ambassador Ron Prosor
wrote to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon Wednesday, in wake of a
report penned by Khalaf, a Jordanian national.
