Israel's current standing in the United Nations is the worst it has been in nearly forty years, said Israel's Ambassador to the United Nations Gabriela Shalev, in an interview with Army Radio on Sunday.

"Our situation in recent months can be compared to the 1970s, when Zionism was being called racism," said Shalev.

Shalev added in the interview that as far as she knew the Libyan backed aid ship, the Almathea, which originally planned to sail to Gaza, "has left Greece and is headed for [Egyptian Port] El-Arish."
