How Israel can achieve victory over the Arabs.

Israel proposed a resolution in favor of giving farm technology to poor countries, and therefore was able to get it approved by the UN General Assembly. The Arab countries, so solicitious of peace and neighborly relations abstained. Apparently, they are against giving farm technology to poor countries, if it is Israel's idea. The logical thing for Israel to do is to set up an association in favor of breathing, eating and motherhood.
The Arabs countries will boycott this organization and organize protests against it. Perhaps they will go on collective hunger-strikes or organize smother-ins.

 UN General Assembly adopts first Israeli-proposed resolution 

Israel, often pilloried in the United Nations, claimed an unprecedented diplomatic triumph on Tuesday when a resolution it had drafted, on farm technology rather than Arab-Iraeli issues, was approved by a UN committee.
"It is the very first time that Israel initiates and authors and submits a resolution which has nothing to do with the (Arab-Israeli) conflict," Ambassador Dan Gillerman told reporters, calling it "a historic occasion."
The resolution passed the General Assembly's Second Committee, dealing with development issues, with 118 votes in favor, none against and 29 abstentions, according to UN figures. It will go before the full assembly next week.
The resolution calls on developed countries to make their agricultural technology know-how - an area where Israel has expertise - more available to the developing world.
Israel is more used to resolutions criticizing its actions in the Middle East being passed by various UN bodies, especially the Geneva-based Human Rights Council.
"It is not easy for Israel to have its resolutions and its points of view adopted," Gillerman said.
Countries that abstained on Tuesday included all 19 Arab states present, although Muslim Afghanistan and Pakistan voted in favor. Iran, Israel's fiercest critic at the world body, did not take part.
Gillerman criticized South Africa, one of several African countries to abstain. The abstention was "a shameful mistake for a country that considers itself to be the leader of Africa," he said.
It took Israel six months to negotiate the text of the resolution, which calls on developed countries to make their agricultural technology more accessible to developing nations in order to fight poverty.
The UN has set the goal of halving the number of poor by 2015, as one of the targets of the "Millennium Development Goals" (MDGs). The other goals deal with education, child and maternal mortality and HIV/AIDS.
