Shame on Brockman.....

The top dog at the UN General Assembly shows he knows nothing about apartheid....
A top UN official has called for "concrete action" against Israel over the country's treatment of Palestinians in the territories.

General Assembly President Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann suggested Monday that the international community should consider sanctions against Israel including "boycott, divestment and sanctions" similar to those enacted against South Africa two decades ago.

"Today, perhaps we in the United Nations should consider following the lead of a new generation of civil society who are calling for a similar nonviolent campaign," said D'Escoto, a Nicaraguan diplomat who currently holds the one-year presidency.

"Israeli policies in the Palestinian territories appear so similar to the apartheid of an earlier era, a continent away, and I believe it is very important we in the United Nations use this term," d'Escoto added. "We must not be afraid to call something for what it is."

This is the same Roman Catholic priest who got off the podium to hug Ahmadinejad after his recent UN speech blaming "Zionists" for all the world's problems.
