Liberman Advocates for UN Control Over Gaza

Liberman says it is best not to leave the region in 'limbo,' and not to allow Hamas to grow stronger.

Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman is advocating for an international force to take control over Gaza.

Liberman told a session of the Knesset Foreign Affairs and Defense Committee on Monday morning (Aug. 4) that Operation Protective Edge is far from over – and that when it does end, there must be a decision made about the disposition of the region.

“There are three options on the table,” said Liberman. “Destroying Hamas, a diplomatic arrangement, or limbo, where they fire and we respond, which is where we were and where we may be heading again now… but in my opinion, the third option is not relevant. The administration of normal country cannot be abandoned to the whims of a terrorist organization,” he said.

As far as Israel is concerned, Liberman pointed out, the goal is to return quiet to the country, eliminate the threat of rocket fire and prevent Hamas from resuming control over Gaza – or anywhere else, for that matter.

“We saw a UN force work well in Kosovo,” Liberman told journalists, “so I think we should consider this option for Gaza… The international community has always demanded that Israel return to the 1967 lines and dismantle communities — in the case of Gaza we did that and destroyed all the towns. What did we get in return? [We got] 18,000 missiles and rockets. We need to wake up from that delusion, that returning to the ‘67 borders is going to bring peace and stability.”

On the heels of Liberman’s briefing with the media, Hamas was already firing rockets at Israel in a barrage of Qassam fire aimed at Gaza Belt communities near the Gaza border, despite another humanitarian cease fire having begun two hours earlier, at 10 am.

  2. Norma Biblow says:

    What? So they can hide more rockets? Stupid very stupid!

  3. Norma Biblow says:

    What? So they can hide more rockets? Stupid very stupid!

  4. John DeLancy says:

    He is greatly mistaken. Israel must _never_ trust the UN. The UN is set upon destroying the Jewish nation. Israel must only depend upon herself and her Gd.

  5. oh well….next time retribution is in order, a load of Nigerian ‘peacekeepers’ will have their asses whacked as well.

  6. Kim Sloan says:

    Liberman is asking the terrorists of the U.N. to control Gaza? Is he nuts? That’s like asking the fox to guard the hen house.

  7. You have Fought And Lost Precious Lives in this War and you’re Ok With Handing it Over to An anti-Semitic group that was Un Willing to help You?

  8. Colin Fuller says:

    Are you kidding me? The UN is the biggest terror organisation in the world. They are not what they appear to be.

  9. It is good if it will work IF

  10. Shahid Khan says:

    Hmmm, that is gud

  11. UN Never trust them wish they would leave NY

  12. The UN can’t control itself!!

  13. Colin Fuller you are correct about the UN

  14. I would like to share what I believe & my heart felt message to the whole peace loving world…I.e., the destruction of all Gaza based infrastructure of the terrorist group Hamas & its terrorism affiliates…is a very great news not merely to the Jews people live in the war area, but also, most importantly, to the peace loving innocent Palestine’s who have been sacrifice their lives as a result of the terrorism mission of Hamas & its affiliates on ISRAEL & its people, as the Gaza’s population is being used as a first hand shield for Hamas…& also help all the Arab neighbor countries that demands peace & security in their future life…!!!

  15. Sonia Morris says:

    How can he be so stupid?

  16. No UN control, it is not the nations that make up the UN but those who run it. I think, in my opinion, they have been the lightning rod behind most all our conflicts, our wars; they are the cause of many market crashes, they are the evil doers. They want control in a New World Order. They want to infiltrate the US and control our borders, remove our guns, control our markets and our people. Tell them to kiss off.

  17. Sorry,but Israel never can leave Gazastrip!

  18. No. That would be idiotic. The UN actively supports Hamas and this would be a prescription for islamist terrorists to launch attacks on Jews with the express protection from the UN. Really, really, dumb idea.

  19. Are you realy that stupid mr. Lieberman?

  20. Eliminate all the Hamas terrorists as soon as possible…….because they are threat to Israel !

  21. The same UN that, when they found munitions being stored in one of their schools, turned them back over to Hamas? Yeah, set the fox to watch the hen house… because that always works.

  22. Joan Gross says:

    That’s a great idea. Hamas will have lots more schools and rockets built by the UN to hide rockets in. And when discovered, the UN will turn those rockets over to Hamas.

  23. for a smart guy, that Is a dumb solution

  24. Dawn Andrade says:

    MYOB!!!! Leave Israel alone.

  25. the UN? The ones that say Israel is unfair to Gaza by not sharing the Iron Dome technology? Sure they are unbiased and fair…

  26. A horrible, fatal mistake!

  27. The UN = United Nothing’s..=EVIL!!! Never deal with that Garbage!!

  28. NO NO NO….Liberman…The UN is terrorist backed.

  29. I can’t think of a worse solution.

  30. Karen Bryant says:

    They didn’t do much to control the U N buildings there already. They cannot be trusted.

  31. Ronnie Pleet says:

    Lieberman is not thinking straight

  32. Paul Weiss says:

    bad idea- get them out completely, and take over the elimination of all hostiles…including the UN!

  33. Seriously? The UN? WTF!!!!!

  34. Zvi Fink says:

    like the god job they do in south Lebanon???

  35. Although UN has an abysmal record of peace keeping!

  36. THAT plan is suicidal.You know, they are pretty much against you. My question is , WHY??? U.N. is still existing b/c of the money funded by deceived supporters.

  37. is he nuts? UN return missles to Hamas.

  38. Has he lost his marbles ?

  39. Marcel Murad says:

    Got to be nuts to trust those bums in the u. n.

  40. Kathy Kupfer says:

    Someone should control it, but the UN is not impartial.

  41. The UN is corrupt. How can Israel trust them.

  42. No. Not because of any conspiracy theory but because the UN is just not very good at what it is supposed to do. Hamas sure has played them.

  43. We all know the UN hates Jew’s ? WTH ?

  44. Never Never let the UN control anything for ISRAE


  46. Deb Adams says:

    Return to Israel control.

  47. Deb Adams says:

    Kick un out. They are killers.

  48. no israel needs to control gaza

  49. keep the un out of israel

  50. Hesh Meister says:

    What’s he smoking?

  51. Marcy Pollak says:

    I guess it would depend on them not storing Hamas rockets in their schools again. They preach one thing and do something otherwise.

  52. I is a really true, and necesary.

  53. And is true too no depend of nothing!

  54. The fox guarding the hen house. It’ll never work!!

  55. Israel needs exists itself.

  56. Uzi Kattan says:

    Dickhead! The UN is actively helping HAM’ASS fight Israel as they did in Lebanon.

  57. Lisa Kamins says:

    hmmm, put a group of human rights violators in charge of Gaza…. and what do you get, Hamas… sorry Liberman, you do not know what you are talking about.

  58. Edit Lipcs says:

    whaaaaaaaaat? Is he totaly maaaaaad?

  59. Rodger Bodle says:

    Unfortunately the United Nations have lost their morale and ability to right the wrongs of this world. First it was known as the “League Of Nations” after WW1 and soon lost creditability with countries that supported it and collapsed on the eve of WWII. They were replaced just after the Second World War renamed as the “United Nations” to become the new world order in the hope to bring war ruined countries back on their feet to improve global human dignity. This strategy worked for many decades until corruption within the United Nations was exposed. Today the UN has lost is dignity and their stand in this day and age is beyond trust.

  60. Butch Howard says:

    Shut up globalists! Israel can rule it better.

  61. What a laugh! The UN is totally corrupt. Ban them.

  62. Yehuda Pa says:

    Not a good idea.

  63. Yehuda Pa says:

    The UN will come in and the minute a shot is fired they leave. UN peace keepers are sissys and cowards, they will run after the first threat. Then Hamas will re-occupy, NO UN in GAZA!

  64. Yehuda Pa says:

    Bad bad bad idea

  65. Yehuda Pa says:

    The UN is a polluted corrupt organization filled to the brim with anti semites and other miscreants. The UN should be disbanded and the US should stop funding it. The US is in terrible debt and disarray. The UN sucks dollars out of the US economy that are are total and complete WASTE OF MONEY.

  66. I say let Israel retake all the land

  67. Oh, please. The Useless UN should be disbanded.

  68. Gaza people are paying the price they will never move forwarding. .until Hamas and other terror groups gone .back besides palastinians in Gaza voted for Hamas


  70. All the UN will do is help. Hamas re stock the weapons. The UN supports terrorists. They are also anti semetic. Read the goldstone report

  71. Sandy Maoz says:

    should be israeli control. the un is irresponsible, liars

  72. The UN is thuggery for the most part, never, ever trust the UN!

  73. Jay Ray says:

    What an idiot. The wolf watching the pen. Typical leadership.

  74. Un is a terrorist organization as seen what its done.

  75. are you kidding me…that would be like a fox in the hen house…who trusts the UN on anything that benefits FREEDOM and humanity without violence.

  76. but if the UN mess up in gaza towards israel, hopefully the world will dismantle them or ban the 3rd worlders !

  77. the USA should control gaza

  78. it was the UN that first legitimized these terrorists, when Kurt Waldheim was it’s Secy Gen!

  79. Judith Ross says:
