Iran bribing nations to vote against Israel at UN

Nearly every member state of the United Nations routinely votes against Israel at the world body, which has for 60 years overwhelmingly focused on the Jewish state.

The mother of all corruption. The Iranian president bribes nations to vote against Israel in United Nations.

But having an overwhelming majority against Israel isn’t enough for Iran, it seems. A report obtained by Israel’s Foreign Ministry last week and published by Israel’s Yediot Ahronot newspaper at the weekend accuses Iran of bribing those few nations who up until recently had voted in Israel’s favor at the UN.

According to the report, last year, Iran’s foreign ministry promised a USD 200,000 check and technological aid to the Solomon Islands, a tiny and very poor Pacific island nation. Up until that time, the Solomon Islands, along with fellow Pacific island nation Micronesia, had consistently voted in favor of Israel.

But that all began to change a few months back when the Solomon Islands surprised Israel by backing anti-Israel resolutions in the General Assembly. Most recently, the Solomon Islands voted in favor of the Goldstone Report, which accuses Israel of war crimes in the recent Gaza war.
