Israeli envoy to the United Nations Ron Prosor spoke at the Jerusalem Post Annual Conference on Sunday, saying that "political terror" was being carried out against Israel everyday by the Palestinians, Arab nations and at the UN.
Prosor said that the steps being taken against Israel have nothing to do with the Jewish state's actual behavior.
