This week, Israel’s Ambassador to the UN, Danny Danon, harshly criticized the Security Council.
Danon calls out the Security Council for constantly and consistently ignoring terror attacks in Israel. He states:
[T]he Council adopted Resolution 2249 in the aftermath of the terror attacks in Paris.
The resolution declares, and I quote:
“Any acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable regardless of their motivations, whenever and by whomsoever committed”
I repeat, “whenever and by whomsoever committed”
Yet, the international community has made one, only one exception.
There is one place in the world that this absolute ban on terrorism can be ignored.
Once again, the state of Israel is singled out, and treated differently from all other nations in the world.
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, thirty people have been killed, and hundreds have been injured.
During this period of time, the Council has adopted twelve resolutions, twelve, 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.
No condemnation, no expression of solidarity, not even a statement of concern.
The facts don’t lie.
The Security Council has been hypocritical when it comes to Israel.
You can watch Danon’s speech here:
It’s business as usual for the Security Council, whenever the subject is terror in Israel.The facts don’t lie, the Security Council has been hypocritical when it comes to Israel. Over the past 4 months the Security Council has passed 12 resolutions condemning terror in countries around the world, but not once has it condemned acts of terror against Israelis.I made a statement today at the Security Council meeting on the Situation in Israel.
