On January 30, 2016, United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki Moon made a statement about the Hamas leadership’s intention to continue to attack Israel. His comments clearly spell out why he is unqualified to lead the UN and comment on the “Question of Palestine.”
From The United Nations: Statement attributable to the Spokesperson for the Secretary-General on statements by Hamas leadership:
“The Secretary-General is alarmed by recent statements from the Hamas leadership in Gaza about the group’s intention to continue building tunnels and firing rockets at Israel.”
- Alarmed? Maybe he should read their charter, watch PalWatch or MEMRI where they describe their intention to kill Israelis and destroy the country time and again. To be alarmed is to be willfully ignorant about the situation and therefore undeserving to comment or be the head of the United Nations.
“Such statements and actions put at risk reconstruction, humanitarian and development efforts by the international community and Palestinian and Israeli authorities. They also do a serious disservice to the long-suffering people of Gaza.”
- The building of tunnels and firing rockets into Israel puts ISRAELIS AT RISK of attack and death. It continues the disservice that the world community is complicit in ignoring the SUFFERING OF ISRAELI CIVILIANS. To ignore the threat to Israel in a statement about Hamas is to be complicit in the crimes of Hamas.
“After three devastating conflicts in seven years, people in Gaza and the people of southern Israel deserve a chance for peace and development. Every effort must be made to improve the living conditions of the people of Gaza.”
- In a statement about the continued military aspirations of the elected leadership of the people of Gaza to attack and kill Israelis, why isn’t the Secretary-General clearly highlighting the need to improve the living conditions of the people of ISRAEL? Why are those that harbor evil intent, granted good will? Why are the innocent ignored?
“The Secretary-General reiterates his condemnation of terrorism in all its manifestations.”
- A condemnation of Hamas barbarity should have clear condemnation of Hamas and its actions, not a general statement about terrorism generally.
The Secretary-General of the United Nations has shown himself unfit to judge the Arab-Israel conflict squarely and fairly.
