Ban Ki-Moon: Israel Has Right to Defend Country

UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon said Tuesday that he respects the legitimacy of Israel’s right to defend itself, but also called on Israel to limit its reaction to ongoing Hamas rocket fire at Israeli civilians.

According to a report on the Hebrew-language Ynet website, Mr Ban also said his organization rejected the terror gang’s use of hospitals and other civilian sites for military purposes.

Prime Minister Netanyahu told the Secretary General that Israel is trying hard not to harm civilians, but pointed out that Hamas’ strategy is to implant fighters amongst the civilian population in order to ensure civilian casualties.

  1. Do you really need the UN, US or world to tell you you have a right not to be sitting ducks and just be slaughtered ?

  2. Did he ask Hamas too to do the same ?

  3. As an outsider and lover of Israel the constant repeating of “we have a right to defend ourself” is making you look weak. Defend yourself and stop trying to get permission from the world.

  4. Gil Weisman says:

    Screw what all the outsiders think, go for the jugular.

  5. Fu-k Moon-send him to Sderot or Ashkelon and tell him to stand there and wait for the air raid siren.how does the anus expect Israel to have Hamas stop the rocket fire, the dumb Korean bustard?

  6. If they know that Israel has that military power why then launched those rockets indiscriminately by the hundreds and even thousands with the intent to murder or massacre civilians? Why would they complain disproportionate actions, who would go to war to defend one’s country without counting the cost and jeopardizing the soldiers? It is never Israel’s fault about those casualties of war having warned those people to evacuate, but yet the other side made them human shield. Do they mean that Israel will not shoot back while the enemies are shooting at them? Where in the laws of war is this found making people as human shield? It is to win the propaganda war at the expense of those human shield. This is terrorism and should be suppressed valuing death more than life.

  7. Fran London says:

    does he want Israel just to turn the other cheek? Is he saying that Hamas has a right to continue with their rocket fire? Defend yourself, but don’t touch any Hamas.

  8. Tammy is right, Israel as to defend itself, finished, stop apologizing

  9. Blanky Moony??????

  10. We can defend ourselves, but not too much?

  11. Patty Hay says:

    Does he even know what a stupid statement this is? Really???????? Where does he live?????? Let’s sends some rockets towards his home and family and let’s see how long he limits anything!!!!!!!!!

  12. U.N. sec. gen. is a moron. how & why should Israel go easy on this kill crazy death cult.

  13. Ban ki moon you are an idiot! PLEASE take a trip to Israel and go to Sderot or Ashkelon or Ashdod for a few days then you maybe you will understand why Israel HAS to defend herself with everything she has got. Why don you tell your friends Hamas to stop firing rockets?

  14. Usani Utum says:

    Israel continue to defend yourself against terror, dont mind banki moon

  15. Why should a nation limit their reaction to attacks on their civilians? Has any nation in history other than Israel been asked to do that? Did anyone expect the US to limit their reaction to 9-11? No. Why should they? Israel needs to destroy Hamas once and for all. That civilians die is tragic but all civilian deaths in this conflict are squarely on Hamas’ hands.

  16. Uzi Kattan says:

    Who needs Ban Ki Moon’s permission to defend Israel.

  17. SPEAK OUT AGAINST THE MILITARY DICTATORSHIP IN NORHT KOREA RUN BY A TEENAGER.

  18. God Almighty bless, Israel and Prime Minister Benjamin Netanjahu. Israel holds a strong defense with the bravest and best educated soldiers in the world. You defeat your evil enemies and with all your knowledge of living daily with those evil enemies. Save the world from this evilness. Amen

  19. Are u serious what’s a limited response for thousands of rocket attacks and now some flights are canceled someone is on glue

  20. Ki Moon and Kerry: I respect the right of Israel to defend itself, but they shouldn’t. My question –still unanswered– who is Hamas and who are civilians, and how do we know? (A soldier passes and they lay down a weapon =civilian, till he passes and then picks it up and shoots him in the back? =Hamas)

  21. None of it is going to stop Islam but all reaction to islam’s tyranny will slow down the progress. The man gives bad advice.

  22. Perhaps if Hamas stopped using human shields.

  23. Ronnie Pleet says:

    How would Americans react when rockets were raining down on them,to a suggestion to limit it’s defensive actions??

  24. Shame on you all!! Losers!!

  25. Klaus Schick says:

    The UN should fully condemn Hamas in total deviance of the Arab Hate peddlers….

  26. ISRAEL KEEP DOING WHAT YOU ARE DOING AND **** ! WHAT THESE STUPID ADS WORLD LEADERS ARE SAYING

  27. Israel has no right to bomb children , everything else is just propaganda .

  28. Marie Parker says:

    Don’t know why they should have to limit their reaction . They are already limiting themselves and going above and beyond what any other country would do in time of war.

  43. Kim Sloan says:

    Israel is already showing remarkable restraint! Screw Ban Ki Moon and any other jerk who tells Israel how to protect itself! He should be deploying armies to kill Hamas instead of criticizing Israel! Go get em Israel, stop the enemy and destroy all the rockets from Gaza and the rest of the hostile regions.

  46. This is such a silly concept. What do you mean Israel has the RIGHT to defend herself? What a dumb question. Of course Israel, or anyone, has the right to defend themselves. Should we let ourselves be beaten over and over and wait until we are given permission to defend? How ludicrous! They’re asking the wrong question. The right question is, “Should Israel expel all non-Jews from her land, ALL her land?” Now that’s a good question.

  47. The UN has long ago outlived its usefulness.

  48. MR. BANKI MOON: YOU ARE SILENT WHEN JEWS ARE THREATENED, ATTACKED AND KILLED. NOW, WHEN JEWS ARE DEFENDING THEMSELVES , YOU SUDDENLY SEEM TO WAKE UP. YOU HAVE NO MORAL LEGITIMACY. GO AWAY.

  49. And we pay for this tripe ah

  50. Jonathan Wii says:

    God is with Israel, and dont give up.

  51. Why don’t someone tell Hamas to stop?

  52. I suppose that is why he permits the UN to stassh rockets, and use ambulances to ferry terrorists.

  53. Akanesi Tapu says:

    Are you out of your mine Ban ki Moon.Go Israel all the way and finish your clause.Don’t listen to your right or left or even hear them.Charge right in to enemy’s eyes.Victory is in your hands.Your God is Lord of many hosts.Amen!

  54. The UN is useless….let’s face it. Israel needs to wipe the bastards out.

  55. That is because you are Jews.
    They want us to be the silent people from before.
    Never again.
    Do what ever is necessary to protected us.
