Ian Williams provides a brief history of both Republican and Democratic administrations’ sycophantic relations with Israel and how this relationship affects U.S. policies toward the U.N. and international law. Will Washington continue to discredit and deflect all U.N. criticism of apartheid Israel with charges of bias and anti-Semitism? Will President Biden work for a rule-based world order, or will he shamelessly insist those rules do not apply to Israel or the U.S.? Does his appointment of career diplomat Linda Thomas-Greenfield as U.S. ambassador to the U.N. mean Biden is actually serious about human rights and adherence to international law?
Ian Williams is president of the Foreign Press Association (New York) and longtime U.N. columnist for the Washington Report on Middle East Affairs.
