Israeli appointed U.N. Vice-President

06.13.05

Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations was voted a vice president of the U.N. General Assembly today:

The appointment of Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Dan Gillerman as vice president to the upcoming UN General Assembly was approved on Monday.

[ . . . ]

Gillerman’s appointment is considered a diplomatic success, as Israel is more often than not condemned in the General Assembly, as well as in the UN Security Council.This isn’t exactly an exclusive post; there are lots of vice-presidents. But the last and only other Israeli to hold the position was Abba Eban, who was elected to the job in 1952.

And in related news, a temperature of minus five degrees was reported today in Hell.
