U.N. Interpreter Falls Victim to Dreaded Hot Mic

Going Viral: Interpreter Wonders Aloud at U.N. Selectivity on Israel: “There’s other really bad sh-t happening, but no one says anything”

GENEVA, —In a rare UN moment of candor now going viral worldwide on major news sites such as The Atlantic, on Thursday a United Nations interpreter, unaware that her microphone was on, uttered words of truth in reaction to the General Assembly’s adoption of nine politically-motivated resolutions condemning Israel, and zero resolutions on the rest of the world.

Under the mistaken impression that she was speaking only to colleagues, the interpreter uttered the following words into the headphones of every UN delegate, and before a live webcast audience worldwide:

“I think when you have… like a total of ten resolutions on Israel and Palestine, there’s gotta be something, c’est un peu trop, non? [It’s a bit much, no?] I mean I know… There’s other really bad sh*t happening, but no one says anything about the other stuff.”
