  • UN Keeps Israel Off List of Worst Child Rights Violators
    Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s latest list of parties that kill or injure children in armed conflict does not include Israel. The UN special envoy for children in armed conflict, Leila Zerrougui, had recommended that both Israel and Hamas be placed on the list of parties that recruit, use, kill, maim or commit acts of sexual violence against children. UN officials said there were differences of opinion on whether Israel should be listed – a key reason why it wasn’t and neither was Hamas.
    Israel’s UN Ambassador Ron Prosor said Ban “was right not to submit to the dictates of the terrorist organizations and the Arab states” and include Israel on a “shameful list” with organizations like the Islamic State, al-Qaeda and the Taliban. (AP-CBS News)
