UNICEF issued a press release:
NEW YORK, 31 July 2015 – “The death of an 18-month old Palestinian baby in an arson attack on his home in the West Bank is a tragedy — and an outrage. UNICEF condemns this and all violence against the innocent. Who could be more innocent than an 18-month old baby? This demands that the guilty be brought to justice. And it demands that everyone refrain from such senseless, horrific violence.”
UNICEF is one of the better UN agencies. it is not obsessed with Israel and it genuinely tried to help children worldwide.
And there is nothing wrong with condemning this incident. Israel’s government and entire political spectrum condemned the horrific act.
But there is still a problem.
