Time to stop handing candy to the 'Palestinians'
The United Nations Security Council condemned Tuesday's 'Palestinian' terror attack in Jerusalem, but called on Israel to show 'restraint
In a unanimous statement quoted by the AFP news agency, the
15-member council expressed concern over rising Israeli-Palestinian
tensions and stressed the importance of condemning the violence after
Hamas hailed the attack.
The council "encouraged Israeli and Palestinian leaders and citizens
to work together to lower tension, reject violence, avoid all
provocations and seek a path toward peace."
In a reference apparently directed at Israel over possible reprisals,
the council "reminded states that they must ensure that measures taken
to combat terrorism comply with all their obligations under
Diplomats said the statement was issued following discussions with
the United States, which consulted with Israel over the wording.
Responding to the Security Council’s condemnation of the attack,
Israeli ambassador Ron Prosor said on Wednesday night, "It is too bad
that only after Israelis are massacred during prayer that the Security
Council remembers to break its silence about Palestinian violence,
despite repeated warnings from us.”
"Now that the international community has realized that the
Palestinians have crossed all the red lines and, in order to stop the
bloodshed, it must stop handing out candy to the Palestinians and stop
its support for unilateral actions,” he added.
Don't hold your breath, Ron. The UN stopping support for unilateral actions by the 'Palestinians.' It will never happen.
