The Israeli official condemned the "Assad killing machine" and claimed "Assad's Council of Terror continues to operate ruthlessly in Damascus."

Again for anyone who believes that the General Assembly vote and its predecessors in the General Assembly, the Security Council and the Human Rights Council are targeted exclusively - or even primarily - at Syria, he added the absurd contention that "on Assad's advisory board sit Ahmadinejad and Nasrallah, who offer him guidance on how to butcher the Syrian people more effectively," in allusions to the Iranian president and the leader of Hezbollah. His accusations also included this: "The outside forces that have been instrumental in the slaughter in Syria speak in a Persian accent."

And, he continued to rant, "It is time for the international community to hold all three members of this "trio of terror' accountable for their crimes."

The resolution also called for the securing, perhaps the confiscation, of Syria's chemical and biological weapons. The Israeli envoy said in regard to that demand: "We shouldn't pretend a regime that cuts throats of children today will not be prepared to gas them tomorrow."

The 133 supporters of the resolution have not only singled out the Syrian government for the violence in the country, but in so doing have whitewashed not only the crimes of foreign-armed rebels but those of Israel, Saudi Arabia, the U.S. and its NATO allies who, moreover, slay thousands not on their own territory but on that of other nations.

Attention has been deflected from decades-long unresolved violence and injustice from Palestine to the Western Sahara in favor of portraying the Syrian government, in increasingly hysterical and bellicose tones, as the world's ultimate bete noir in order to pave the way for Iran to fill the role next and, even more ominously, as the gravest step yet in challenging and confronting Russia and China.
