DEATH FROM A SALESMAN

Ban Ki-Moon Tries New Sales Pitch to Stab Israel in the Back

Beware of false friends. Ban Ki-moon tries to soften up Israel by admitting that the U.N. sometimes is biased against Israel, but not to worry, because peace is on the way.

U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has finally discovered that Israel is a sucker for a pat on the head and has admitted that the Israeli-Palestinian Authority conflict has been so dominant that it has caused Israel to have “suffered from bias and sometimes even discrimination.”

His earth-shaking confession in a speech at an Israeli college scored big points in headlines. He even said that Israel actually should be treated as an equal to all other countries in the undistinguished body.

Isn’t that great news?

That is just the kind of ego booster that makes so many Israelis feel really proud to be an Israeli. More important for U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry, it is ammunition for President Barack Obama’s personal Jewish lobby to use to convince Israel that it really is worth to shrink the country back to the tiny strip that existed until seven Arab nations circled the Jewish wagons in 1967.

The United Nations no longer is berating Israel. It now is stroking it with a soothing massage before sticking the goodwill knife in the back.

After Ban Ki-moon removed any concerns that the international body might be a just a smidgen anti-Israel, he jumped on the illusion that the Palestinian Authority and Israel have resumed “direct talks” to declare, “I have never been this optimistic.”

The “direct talks” are a stage show mediated by the United States.

But The U.N. chief insists, “This time, I expect real peace. The Israeli and Palestinian people are neighbors and have no choice but to live in harmony and peace, side by side.”

Of course, that is exactly what they were doing from 1967 until Yasser Arafat came along. Egypt treated Arabs in Gaza with malign neglect before then, and Jordan did nothing to advance to social, education and economic standing of Arabs in Judea and Samaria.

Along came Israel, and the level of education, standard of living reached unprecedented levels for the Arabs, who been living third-world lives.

The along came Yasser Arafat, who promised them a nation,and even provided the terrorists to hurry along the process while manufacturing the concept of a Palestinian people, which never existed and still does not exists

The United Nations has played a major part on the assembly line, creating 5 million “Palestinians” by changing the status of “refugee,” as it used in every other place in the world, to include offspring as “Palestinian refugees,” even if they are third and fourth-generation Syrian, Lebanese and Jordanians.

That is how the grandniece – not even the great grandchild, mind you – of an Arab  who once lived west of Jerusalem in what is now the Jewish community of Zecharia, had the audacity to tell the Christian Science Monitor Sunday,  “I am from Zakaria [sic], not Dhaishe, and to anyone who asks me where I’m from I answer Zakaria. “ This is the village of my grandparents [sic] and we are hoping to return back to it. This is our right and our dream…This is a question of justice and dignity.”

That is why Ban Ki-moon is being so nice to Israel, which he wants to change from a state of Jews to one of Good Samaritans.

It is a gimmick that has worked time and time again. Israel was loved by the entire world for kicking 9,000 Jews out of Gaza in 2005 and withdrawing every IDF soldier and intelligence officer.

Hamas also loved Israel, and thanked it by attacking half of the country with missiles and rockets until this very day.

When Ehud Barack, arguably Israel’s worst-ever prime minister, gave up the security zone in southern Lebanon and hastily withdrew the IDF in 2000, Israel bathed in praised. Hezbollah exploited the power vacuum and Israel’s relaxing under the glowing sun of praise  to attack the other half of Israel with nearly 4,000 missiles in 2006, but that does not matter.

And the world really patted Israel’s shoulders until they were too sore to move for being so Christian as to turn the other cheek and free terrorists time and time again. So what if only a few hundred out of several thousand returned to terror and killed several hundred Israelis?

The important thing is that the world applauded Israel and Ban Ki-moon will continue to do so – until the very end.

    thank you for sharing.

  2. harrylax says:

    Poor Mr. Gedalyahu and his cohorts are trembling in their boots about the possibility that peace between Israel and Palestine may actually occur, to replace the occupation.

  3. Nathan Katz says:

    US out of UN. UN out of US.

  4. DrJLD says:

    It is too early to say that these talks will bring peace. Of course, peace is more than just the cessation of military activity. It requires that people have a political voice in their countries and that they value life, love, work, and happiness more than endless death, unhappiness, poverty, and the perversion of love by getting their children to become terrorists.
    The charters of the PLO and Hamas suggest that they will never let their people actually decide what is best for them. As long as this lasts, peace talks may provide something, but real peace between Arabs and Jews will not be one of them.
    Peace that only seeks to end what you call occupation (that international law calls legal), will not be peace at all. It will be Israel cutting its own throat to please leftists and Islamofascists like yourself.
    You are not wanting real peace, but for something that leaves Israel and the Jews weaker and more easily destroyed.

  5. Basha Kline says:

    Brilliant article by Tzvi Ben Gedalyahu – great insight and it is true, Jews love to be loved, to our detriment – we should and must keep our guard as there are very few friends of Jews and Israel. The only advantage of freeing terrorists is that they are so easily acquired for bartering with – almost like monopoly money!

  6. Ron Szczotka says:

    They should dissolve the U N.Its nothing but a worthless p.o.s! They stand by and watch people being butchered like in Africa.

  7. Bear Klein says:

    Update Ban now says UN does not discriminate against Israel. So all is well again as the No.1 UN hack is distorting reality as is the norm!

  8. Israel for his wrong policy will dissapear in few decades, it is better to anounce to the Israeli people which reality future has if not changes 180 defree attitude giving allways land to get killings for payback.

  9. Ralph Haglund says:

    Why is noone mentioning the Fatah Constitution, where you can read:

    Article (12) Complete liberation of Palestine, and eradication of Zionist economic, political, military and cultural existence.

    Article (19) Armed struggle is a strategy and not a tactic, and the Palestinian Arab People's armed revolution is a decisive factor in the liberation fight and in uprooting the Zionist existence, and this struggle will not cease unless the Zionist state is demolished and Palestine is completely liberated.

    Arafat was hard pressed to remove such parts from the PLO constitution, he said he would, he never did. Abbas is not even pressed.

  10. TomTuna says:

    Why ever would a S.Korean side with the friends of N.Korea??

  11. Pat Brooks says:

    NO! I wouldn't trust anyone giving compliments to Israel if coming from UN or from USA administration! I think Israel is too smart to do that! I STAND FOR ISRAEL FOREVER! God bless Israel!
