  • Israel Slams UN Chief for Justifying Palestinian Terrorism – Shlomo Cesana
    UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon told the UN Security Council on Tuesday: “As oppressed peoples have demonstrated throughout the ages, it is human nature to react to occupation.” He called Israeli settlement activity “an affront to the Palestinian people and to the international community.”
    In response, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu said: “The UN Secretary General’s remarks give a tailwind to terrorism. There is no justification for terrorism. The Palestinian murderers do not want to build a state – they want to destroy a state and they say this openly. They want to murder Jews simply because they are Jews and they say this openly. They do not murder for peace and they do not murder for human rights.”
    Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon said: “During the past four months, Israelis have been stabbed in their homes, shot at in the streets, and run over by terrorists using cars as weapons. Over the course of this wave of violence, 30 people have been killed, and hundreds have been injured. During this period of time, the Council has adopted 12 resolutions against terrorism, and condemned terrorist attacks in France, Sinai, Lebanon, Mali, Tunisia, Turkey, Iraq, Syria, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Somalia, and Sudan. Not once were the lives of Israelis murdered by terrorists recognized by this Council.”
    Yair Lapid, leader of the opposition Yesh Atid party, said: “Terrorism against innocent civilians cannot be justified; we must not provide explanations for it. It is inconceivable that anyone in the world – certainly not the UN secretary-general – says that terror is the ‘result’ of something.”  (Israel Hayom)
