UN envoy: World view shifting in favor of Israel

Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Dan Gillerman noted on Thursday that the international response to the Israeli actions in Lebanon were much milder than expected. He noted that in recent years there have been signs of a shift in the international view of Israel, with more countries expressing support of Israel. When asked whether people were refraining from shaking his hand, he replied that the other diplomats shook his hands and even patted him on the back.
