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.

Without the help of the US and its Ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power, Israel "would be in real trouble," Prosor said.

Prosor said that the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions movement making headlines in recent weeks is nothing new. At the UN, there is the "demand for the delegitimization of Israel every day." 

"Israel every day has to deal with phenomena that western democracies are yet to deal with," he said.

Israel should be able to utilize changes in the Arab World, because our interests on certain issues are now aligned, Prosor said.

"We are fighting Israel's legitimacy in the family of nations every day, " Prosor said.
