UNHRC High Commissioner Navi Pillay is calling for an investigation of Israel's military actions in Gaza. (archive photo)

In both cases, sources report that UNRWA chose to hand over the lethal ordnance to the very same Hamas terrorist organization that began this conflict – and which repeatedly refuses to end it with a cease fire agreement.

Interestingly, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon issued a statement in an attempt to exert some damage control.

Ban had the grace to at least express alarm that 20 rockets found last Thursday stashed in the UN’s Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) school in Rafah – located on the Gaza border with Egypt, where numerous terrorist tunnels have been built — had gone ‘missing.’

Ban, at least, had enough sense to order the world body to deploy experts to ‘deal with’ the situation. Of course, he too did not specify what that meant. But one can reasonably assume that as secretary-general of the UN, he is a bit more accountable to Western nations than is Pillay and will have to make a better show of explaining himself if he doesn’t figure out what his agency did with the ordnance.

Of course, it’s water under the bridge at this point. Those missiles are already gone, as are the second batch that was discovered two days ago in another UNRWA school. There were so many in that facility that UNRWA didn’t even bother to offer a number.

It will be interesting to see how the UN manages to square the issue of a UN agency committing war crimes, collaborating with a terrorist organization committing war crimes, and ignoring both while accusing the one party that actually isn’t committing the war crimes.

  1. Navi Pillay what an Anti Semite what a joke. Human Rights? Terrorist rights. She doesn’t care about 140,000 Syrians 700 Iraqis last week. She is the worst the UN should be defunded and thrown out of NY and Geneve. They should be in Qatar with the other terrorists

  2. No war crimes by Hamas – an internationally declared terrorist organization who initiated this war by sending missiles at civilian populations indiscriminently and relentlessly for the sole purpose of annihilating a population and which organiation admits to this singular goal.

  4. Mikeandsons AntiquesUk where was the UN when the palastinian kill those three boys? where was the UN when they were firing the guns and the bombs to Israel? where was the UN when they committed terrorist attacks against civilliants population? UN knows that the palastinians were hiding the missels in UN Schools, Hospitals, Mosks and in the populations houses…… And they are investigating Israel for work crimes??THAT IS WRONG!!!!!!! You should investigate Hamas and the other terrorist organisations, but the only thing i know is that they are affraid to do it. I wonder why???????????????

  5. While serving as Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations in 1984, the Rebbe Menachem Mendel Schneerson, ZK”L, told Netanyahu: “you will be serving in a house of darkness, but remember, that even in the darkest place; the light of a single candle can be seen far and wide…”

  7. The United Nations isn’t worth the powder it would take to blow it to hell. Its time AMERICA kicked it out and stopped ALL FUNDING from OUR TAX DOLLARS !!!!! Give a United Nations member like her a hat, a badge and a whistle and they think they are GOD ALMIGHTY !

  8. Yes…how dare Israel expose to the world UN corruption. How dare Israel discover the Hamas rockets hidden in UN buildings…The UN is a person…it has rights…those rights were violated…and blah, blah, blaaaaaahhhhhhhh….

  9. High commissioner… How dare you be so self righteous! Have you taken a moment to look at the human rights score card in your own country? If you did you would be thinking twice about your comments about Israel. You would be looking at how the UN could use the Israel model not perfect by any means as the benchmark for human rights throughout the world !

  10. Is she on drugs? Maybe she should have her glasses checked. Better yet, let her go to Israel and see what is going on. Condemning Israel? Todays headlines in the news was that Hamas refuses to accept any ceasefires or truces.

  11. UN Commission on Human Rights before you blah blah blah try to check first who start the trouble and whose to blame it.you does’nt care about the israeli civilian who suffer trauma when rockets fire with in..seconds to live run to the bomb shelter just to cover to save their own live may be you’ve seen to many casualties in Gaza side because hamas used civilian as their shields so don,t condemn IDF for protecting their people and their country..I stand with Israel Defense Forces.

  14. it is about time that the UN be held to the standard that this agency was intended to uphold. It lacks integrity & honesty. Show me where in its mandate that it is to FUND terrorist networks and when they FIND the arsenal cache in NOT 1 but 2 separate schools, BLAME the nation that is DEFENDING itself and its citizens from those missiles. Don’t fund the MISSILES JUST the location to house them in AND oh YEAH, let’s call them SCHOOLS, HOSPITALS & RESIDENTIAL HOMES!! TIME to do away with that very DAMAGING agency known as the UN. Now go get a job ….

  15. Let’s see here. Rockets were originally fired from Gaza into Isreal. That in itself is an act of war. Everyone knows Hamas hides behind innocent people and use them as a shield. So the U.N. Itself along with Navi Pillay are nothing more than a joke. It’s time to disband and kick the U.N. Out off the USA.

  16. There are 46 countries on the UN Human Rights Council, out of which 29 voted against Israel Here is the list of the countries… A joke.

  17. That number of countries are only wanted to investigate the conflict between Hamas & Israel! Don’t twist the intention of those countries! They did not agree that Israel is responsible of casualties in Gaza! People, don’t be misled that 46 countries were holding the Israel responsible for deaths in Gaza! The main purpose is to investigate both sides!

  18. The true heartless humans in this sad drama are those who do not want peace with Israel or economic stability for there people. They build tunnels to wage war they reign rockets down on Israel. They do not love their people . They love jihad. They are Hamas.

  20. ALL people of conscience and clear reasoning support Israel

    (So – not the UN)

    I admire Netanyahu for his temperance. Very few world leaders would have shown the diplomacy or limited military responses he has toward the Palestinians under the same circumstances. Most other world leaders in power today would have shellacked the Palestinians by now, leveled Gaza, and put up parking lots and strip malls.
    There is a profoundly simple truth in play in the middle east, when you take away all the smoke and mirrors. It’s been attributed to various people, so I don’t know who said it, but it is what’s real:

    If the Palestinians laid down their weapons there would be no more war. If Israel laid down their weapons, there would be no more Israel.

    As a sovereign nation, Israel has a basic right to defend her borders and her people from violent attacks and incursion.

    Even when her methods may seem harsh – Israel has always and will always have the moral high ground in this conflict.

    The ONLY way kids and everyone else in that region stops dying, is when the cost Hammas and the Palestinians pay for killing them becomes too great to bear up under, IMV

  21. SUCH HYPOCRISY. I AGREE WITH DAN COMMENTING BELOW. CHINA SHOULD BE CRITICIZED FOR TAKING OVER TIBET. RADICAL MOSLEMS SHOULD BE CONDEMENDED FOR ATTACKING PEOPLE OF OTHER RELGIONS AND FORCING THEM TO CONVERT OR PAY FINES, KILLING AND TORTURING PEOPLE OF OTHER RELGIONS. WOULD LIKE TO SEE A CEASE FIRE. THE PEOPLE OF GAZA CAN BE AND SHOULD BE HELPED WITH HUMANITARIAN AID, BUT NO WEAPONS. THE WHOLE AREA SHOULD BE DEMILITARIZED. I WOULD DROP EDUCATIONAL BROCHURES TO FOLLOW THE GOLDEN RULE, TREAT OTHERS LIKE YOU WANT TO BE TREATED. SEE GOD IN EVERYONE. TREAT ALL RELGIONS AND ETHNIC GROUPS WITH EQUAL RESPECT!!!
