UN Chief Ban Ki-moon Equates Kidnapping to Israeli Defense

UN Chief Ban Ki-moon compared the Israeli air strike against an active Hamas/Salafi Jihad terrorist to the kidnapping of 3 Israeli children.

Following repeated missile launches from Gaza into Israel, as well as a plot to take down a helicopter, the IAF struck back, taking out Hamas policeman and rocket terrorist Mohammed Awar last Wednesday. Also injured in the strike was Awar’s human shield, his 7 year old nephew, who died on Saturday.

Unlike Ban Ki-moon’s unequivocal condemnation of the kidnapping of Turkish diplomats in Iraq last week where he said, “this is totally unacceptable” and he was “shocked” to learn of the kidnapping by “terrorists”, Ki-moon felt, in the case of Israel, the need to compare, in his boilerplate statement, the deliberate kidnapping of three Israeli children, to the strike against an active terrorist, which also killed a human shield the terrorist thought would protect him from an Israeli strike, as he continues his terror attacks.

Ban Ki-moon expressed, “deep concern on the trend toward violence on the ground and attendant loss of life, including today of a child in Gaza as a result of a recent Israeli airstrike.” Ban urged all parties to “exercise restraint and lend urgent support for the release and safe return of the three youths.”

Ban Hi-moon should have pulled an Obama, and just kept his mouth shut.

  35. The words of the UN are as inconsequential as most of its actions. Had you not made the effort to listen, you would not know that Mr. Moon had said anything at all.

    Now, that said, the UN merely continues to live down to its usual standard here, particularly with regard to Israel.

  36. Jay Grosflam Truth hurts doesn’t it?

  40. They warned Israel time and again that they were going to kidnap Israelis, so that they could have prisoner swops and reign terror on Israel. And the World ” did nothing” they were silent. What did the World Not Understand???? Wait until it happens on their Home turf? Then they will sing a different tune.

  41. And the most powerful man is silent.
