Outrage Manifesto: An Open Letter to Ban Ki Moon


The_United_Nations_Building

It is remarkable that the UN expresses such criticism of Israel for the number of civilian deaths that occurred in Gaza, but no such outrage at Hamas for the ongoing traumatization of Israeli citizens who have had their lives disrupted by ongoing sirens and rockets fired at them from across the border.

I am outraged that at least two generations of Israeli citizens in the south have not known peace, they spend their lives ‘hyper alert’ to sirens, to run for safety, while the terrorists from across the border have only one mission, to destroy them.

I am outraged that a terror organization with a manifesto to “Kill The Jews Wherever They May Be, and to ‘Push Israel Into the Sea’ is suddenly defined as an elected “Government.”

I am outraged that the foreign press and social media sees fit to traumatize the world with images of dying women and children at the hands of the Israeli Aggressor without being held accountable for their criminal acts against humanity – the innocent citizens of Israel, now not only in the south, but in the north and center of this country.

I am outraged at the bastardization of the world media who continue to scapegoat Jews and Israel, while turning a blind eye to Muslims murdering other Muslims in the name of Allah.

I am outraged at Christian children being beheaded in the name of Allah, by a group that is now a self-declared Islamic State, while the world focuses on Israel’s alleged so-called ‘criminal acts against humanity.’

Gaza has allowed the world to become hyper-vigilant towards Israel, and totally blind to the rise of radical Islam that has no qualms about destroying everyone in its wake, and that does not adhere to its own tenets.

I am outraged, Mr. Ban Ki-moon, at the United Nations hypocrisy. I am outraged that history has been forgotten, that in 1948 there was an attempt to give both the Jews and the Palestinians their own State, but the Palestinians chose their own Diaspora.

I am outraged that the citizens of Israel have not known a moment’s peace since 1948.

I am outraged, Mr. Ban Ki-moon that the members of the General Assembly of the United Nations have chosen in their bias to rewrite history.

I am outraged that the media has chosen to depict a biased one-sided presentation of the truth and that the United Nations has contributed to this collusion.

I am outraged that UNWRA has allowed itself to be “used” for criminal causes, while all the while purportedly stating that its schools are bastions of refuge and education. That is at the first level. One short level down, the schools are store-houses for ammunition, and launching pads. And I am outraged at the collusion of the United Nations and its employees in their unwillingness to take responsibility for the position they find themselves in, in Gaza, as the “blind supporters” by default, of acts of terrorism.

I am outraged at the hypocrisy of presenting a one-sided picture of the situation in Gaza without giving equal presentation of Israel’s citizens traumatized by the ongoing sirens that have disrupted daily life for more than ten years in the south, and which has spread like a cancer to the north and the center of this country.

I am outraged at the accusations of Israel as an Apartheid State, by those who question its very existence. I am outraged at the ongoing anti-Semitism that continues in 2014, only now it is euphemistically labeled ‘anti-Zionism.’

And all of this, while the United Nations gives tacit approval for this situation to continue. And while you, Mr. Ban Ki-moon, seem to forget the historical context within which that esteemed body voted to give Israel statehood.

  1. read this letter shows how irrelevant the UN is

  2. It is past time for the US to rid itself of the UN…

  3. Ban Ki Moon seems not only a political puppet but also clueless person. He doesn’t seem to understand what is laying between the lines. Having said that Is the UN a club of majority representatives from oppressive countries? Is there a need for reformation? because I think there is no balance in the council at all. So if the big chunk of the Muslim arab countries say the world is flat then the world is flat. Is that even legal? or fair?

  4. Joella Comp says:

    Anyone with common sense understands that this is a puppet organization who is entirely anti-Semitic!

  5. can he see the horrors happening in Iraq ?

  6. Kathy Kupfer says:

    Jews unfortunately know what it is. Auschwitz, Dachau, Bergen Belsen. Etc.

  7. the world leaders turn a blind eye on Israel, but the eyes of God is always on His belaoved nation Israel,

  8. Beautifully written!

  9. Liz Smith says:

    Not gonna happen, Our leader is the next Egyptian pharaoh.

  10. Get rid of those cancers of the World! If the UN can’t serve its purpose, why continue to have it display the world circus. We don’t need a world circus!

  11. It’s time for the US to pull out of the UN. Let the UN establish its headquarters in the Arab Middle East and let their money support her since she always supports their racist resolutions.

  12. Close the UN or let the UN be crucified, decapitated and buried alive by ISIS

  13. Close the UN or let the UN be crucified, decapitated and buried alive by ISIS

  14. Close the UN or let the UN be crucified, decapitated and buried alive by ISIS

  15. Orah Peer says:

    The UN aka united nuts should be investigated & dismantled Asap

In a world where people question whether they should be engaged, we are a reminder that all Jews are responsible for one another.

Golden presents a compelling saga of poor but determined immigrants who fled pogroms and harsh conditions in their homelands for a better life in a land of opportunity.

It seems to us that while the Jewish entitlement to the land of Israel transcends the Holocaust, the Jewish experience during that tragic time is the most solid of foundations for these “national rights.”

Too many self-styled civil rights activists seemed determined to force, by their relentless pressure, an indictment regardless of what an investigation might turn up.

Unfortunately, at present, the rabbinate does not play a positive role in preventing abuse.
