An interpreter who challenged the UN’s anti-Israeli bias last week will always have a job waiting for her in the Jewish state, Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday.

The Israeli prime minister made the comment at the government’s weekly cabinet meeting. At the assembly, Netanyahu played a recording of the moment the UN translator spoke into a mic she believed was turned off, asking a colleague why the United Nations plenum was so biased against Israel.

The off-the-cuff remark was made on a day the UN General Assembly passed nine anti-Israel resolutions.

“I would like to tell this interpreter that she has a job waiting for her in the State of Israel,” Netanyahu said. “There are moments that tear the hypocrisy off the unending attacks against us, and this brave interpreter did so.”
