UN Concern is only for Violence in “Occupied Palestinian Territory,” not Israel

United Nations Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon arrived in Israel on October 19, 2015 with the claim that he hoped to stop “the dangerous escalation in violence across the occupied Palestinian Territory and Israel, especially in Jerusalem,” according to the UN official press release.

In discussing the situation, the United Nations opted to highlight certain cities where attacks took place: “in East Jerusalem, Ramallah, Hebron, Bethlehem, Jenin, Tulkarm and Nablus.” Note that every city that was mentioned was east of the Green Line. Seven cities, and not one west of the Green Line, where several attacks occurred including:

  • Petach Tikva (Stabbing October 7)
  • Kiryat Gat (stabbing October 7)
  • Tel Aviv (stabbing October 8)
  • Afula (stabbing October 8 & 9)
  • Jerusalem, west of the Green Line (stabbing and beating October 9 & 14)
  • Raanana (stabbing October 13)
  • Beer Sheva (shooting October 19)

Are these seven cities west of the Green Line not important? Is violence a concern to the United Nations only if it happens in “occupied Palestinian Territory?”

In case anyone thinks that mentioning seven random cities happened to coincidentally be east of the Green Line, the United Nations repeated those same seven cities the following day on October 20 in the press release mentioning:  “A series of deadly clashes between Palestinians and Israelis, including Israeli security forces, has marked much of October, with violent incidents reported in more than 50 different locations, including in East Jerusalem, Ramallah, Hebron, Bethlehem, Jenin, Tulkarm and Nablus.

When Ban Ki-Moon said that “No society should have to live in fear. No society can afford to see its youth suffer in hopelessness,” did he really only mean Palestinian Arabs?

  6. The UN worries about Israel’s occupation is the main reason why there is no solution. How can there be a solution when Israel has not “occupied”; a land that belongs to Israel. Arabs have larger unoccupied regions that will be suitable for their growth and development. Jerusalem is NOT an option. Jerusalem is better cared by Israel, since Christianity has also a claim to their treasures in history in Jerusalem.
    Gaza should stay free of Arabs to maintain Terrorisn away from Israel. This is their safety net. The USA occupied land in every place around the world –call then American bases (Army, Navy, Air Force). It’s a way to keep proper safeguards to areas they have gotten rid of enemies.
    On the other hand. The UN has to resolve the safety of all Christians ‘ genocide in the hands of Islamists extremist. Take the UN focus off Israel and change it to fulfill the needs of Christians in these Arab countries.
