Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Ron Prosor gave his own take on Sunday's Academy Awards, issuing "Oscars for Maintenance of International Peace and Security" during a UN session in New York this week.

"In the Best Actor Category – for acting like a peace loving country while developing nuclear capabilities, denying the Holocaust, and threatening the destruction of another member state… the Oscar goes to Iran," Prosor quipped.

"In the category for Best Supporting Actor – for its unrelenting support to the Assad Regime in killing hundreds of thousands civilians… the Oscar goes to Hezbollah," Prosor said.



He gave the mock Oscar in the Best Visual Effects category to Saudi Arabia " for making women disappear from the public sphere."

And in the category of Best Editing, the Palestinians were the recipients of the fake Oscar "for rewriting history."





"But the truth is – the Palestinian Authority already received enough prizes from this institution," Prosor said, charging the UN with being biased in favor of the Palestinians.
