Netanyahu rips Monkey Moon over 'occupation' comment
Prime Minister Netanyahu has slammed UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon for referring to Gaza as 'occupied
"The root cause of the
violence that burst from Gaza is not Israel’s occupation in Gaza, for a
simple reason: Israel doesn’t occupy Gaza," Netanyahu explained. "Israel
left Gaza to the very last centimeter, to the very last inch. We
uprooted all the settlements and vacated all the settlers. So there is no Israeli occupation of Gaza."
Netanyahu then pointed out that Ban justified Hamas's rocket barrage despite the fact that it used the UN's own facilities
to break international law.
"The root cause of this
summer's outburst of violence was Hamas' rocketing of Israeli cities,
and these rocket attacks often exploited UN neutrality, using UN
facilities and UN schools as part of the Hamas machine of terror," he
thundered. "And when rockets were discovered inside UN
schools, some UN officials handed them back to Hamas – that very same
Hamas that was rocketing Israeli cities and Israeli civilians."
The Prime Minister then reiterated the fact that Hamas is a terror group dedicated to genocide against Jews.
"The root cause of Hamas’ rocket fire on Israel is Hamas’ opposition to Israel’s very existence," he declared. "Hamas
doesn't give a hoot for the 1967 lines. For them, Israel has no right
to live, in any borders. Hamas rejects our very existence. They’re
committed to killing every Israeli and every Jew. You just have to read
their charter – they say that very plainly."
"So Hamas is the enemy of all of us who seek peace," he continued.
