Ban Ki-Moon blames Israel for Arabs' backwardness
UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon has blamed the 'occupation' for Arab backwardness. Talk about letting the Arabs avoid responsibility for their own actions....
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon laid partial blame for stifled development in the Arab world on "protracted conflict, injustice and occupation," in a message relayed Monday to the Third Arab Economic and Social Development Summit in Saudi Arabia.
"The stalemate in the peace process between Palestinians and Israelis is especially troubling," said Executive Secretary of the UN Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia Rima Khalaf, who delivered Ban's message.
He called for a renewal of "collective engagement to resume meaningful negotiations that will realize Palestinian aspirations to live in freedom and dignity in an independent State of their own, side by side with Israel in peace and security."The Arab world has no one but itself to blame for its backwardness. Itself, the way it practices Islam and the way it treats its women are all high on the list of reasons why the Arab world is stuck in the 8th century, And morons like Ban Ki-Moon who justify that behavior are high on the list of reasons why they will never modernize.
