Jordan Blocks UN Security Council Condemnation of Terrorist Kidnapping

Jordan managed to prevent the United Nations Security Council from condemning the kidnapping of three Israeli teens by Arab terrorists on June 12, after repeated attempts to force a statement condemning Israel along with the terrorists.

Jordan attempted to sneak in the condemnation of Israel in the Council’s resolution aginst the kidnapping Monday at a session of the U.N. Security Council, but the United States blocked it. The move came in maneuvers to work out wording of a statement to media condemning the kidnapping.

Jordan wanted to include wording to condemn Israel for “collective punishment” of the Palestinian Authority population … and a call for “both sides to exercise restraint,” according to a Council diplomat. In the end, the Hashemite Kingdom succeeded in preventing the Security Council from issuing any statement condemning the kidnapping at all.

Russian U.N. Ambassador Vitaly Churkin told reporters, “Unfortunately, members of the Security Council were not able to find common ground. Some delegates want to have very strong language condemning Israel, another delegation did not want to have any reference to Israel at all.”

Israeli U.N. Ambassador Ron Prosor said in a statement following the meeting, “Some nations behave as if Israel should roll out the welcome mat for Hamas. Israel will not allow this terrorist group to trample on its citizens. Israelis are acting in self-defense.”

    That's alright. This is just like when the US is the lone vote blocking a condemnation of Israel, just in reverse. The bottom line is that this time the world is with Israel, and the only exceptions are those countries that would destroy Israel if they could.
