The General Assembly adopted a resolution last Friday condemning “hegemonism, ” including a phrase in the resolution which referred to Zionism as a form of hegemonism. The resolution defined hegemonis as seeking to “perpetuate unequal relations and privilege acquired by force.”

The vote on the resolution was 111 in favor, four against and 26 abstentions. Israel, the United States, Canada and Australia voted against the resolution which declared that the General Assembly holds that “imperialism, colonialism, neocolonialism, racism, including Zionism and apartheid” are different manifestations of the “policy and practice of hegemonism.”
