One of Israel's top diplomats this week issued a stinging rebuke to the United Nations, accusing it of "turning truth on its head and casting morality aside".

In a barnstorming speech, Israel's Ambassador to the UN Ron Prosor accused the world body of "lending legitimacy to those who seek to destroy us" while highlighting the "fog that descends to cloud all logic and moral clarity" when it comes to the conflict.
