United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres last April vowed to take action to end anti-Semitism, and called the denial of Israel’s right to exist a modern form of anti-Jewish hatred. Speaking at a World Jewish Congress Assembly in New York, Guterres said he could not control all expressions of bias against Israel at the United Nations. But he said Israel has the right to be treated like any other U.N. member state.

“A modern form of anti-Semitism is the denial of the right of the State of Israel to exist,” Guterres said. “As Secretary General of the United Nations, I can say that the State of Israel needs to be treated as any other state, with exactly the same rules.”
