Ban Ki-Moon Condemns Terror around the World – Except in Israel [video]

Monday, November 30th, 2015

The Paris climate conference opened on Sunday with a moment of silence for the world’s recent victims and a solemn recital of cities where radical Islamists have murdered people, with the blatant omission of Tel Aviv and Jerusalem.

Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who draws a line connecting global warming and terrorism, ticked off the names of cities, including:

Paris; Tunis; Beirut, and Bamako, Mali. notably

And what about Jerusalem and Tel Aviv?

Apparently Jews murdered there are not terror victims, according to Ban. He and other Western leaders have tried to manufacture a link between the “occupation” and the Arab “resistance” movement that encourages the murder of Jews.

Or, the world is so used to them that it not worth mentioning, except in the London Daily Mail. The British tabloid not only headlined violence in Jerusalem, but also let readers think that the Arabs are the victims

Honest Reporting noted that the newspaper’s headline appeared as:

The conference in Paris is ostensibly over the climate, but Western leaders are running over each other for headlines to show their concern over the Paris massacres by Islamic State (ISIS) terrorists. President Barack Obama and Canadian Prime Justin Trudeau hurried over to the Bataclan Theatre to pay their tribute to victims of the Islamic State (ISIS) massacre there two weeks ago.

The conference will likely conclude with pontifical agreements on “global warming” without much follow through, but an agreement on an international effort to fight radical Islam is not in the cards.

In fact, Ban Ki-moon is afraid that the war against terror will “overshadow” the war against “global warming.”

Ban Ki-moon has adopted the line that one way to fight terror is to keep the temperature from rising one degree, because, so the theory goes, droughts cause famine and that is what causes Muslims to murder people in Paris and Jerusalem.

In his words, in an interview with Canada’s CBC:

When we do not address climate change properly it may also affect many people who are frustrated and who are impacted, then there is some possibility that these young people who [are] jobless and frustrated may join these foreign terrorist fighters.

There is a concern whether it may overshadow the climate change agreement and I think we have to move on this climate change agreement.

Ban Ki-moon Warns: Respect Human Rights when Fighting ISIS

Sunday, November 15th, 2015

The United Nations is once again trying to lead the world to surrender to evil, this time in the form of the Islamic State (ISIS).

U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon warned the world on Sunday that violating human rights when fighting the barbarian army may make the radical Islamists angry and provoke them

He stated:

At this time of heightened tension, I caution against action that would only perpetuate the cycle of hatred and violence.

He has a better idea. Rather than fight the enemy, talk with the beheaders.

The secretary-general said the world has a “rare moment” to engage in diplomacy to end the violence, just like diplomacy was supposed to spread the wings of peace over the regime of Basher al-Assad when he brutally tried to snuff out peaceful protests against his autocratic regime nearly five years ago; and just like the wolves and lambs would lie down together in Israel with the creation of another Arab Muslim country within Israel’s borders.

Europe, already overrun by Islamic radical, now is trying to lock the barn door following Friday’s ISIS massacres in Paris. Locking the door keeps the wolves inside, but Ban Ki-moon is not worried.

Neither is Bernie Sanders, trying to become the Democratic party’s choice to be the first American Jewish president, following its first black president.

Sanders said in a debate Saturday that the United States should take in refugees from Syria and added that the ISIS threat to destroy the world never would have appeared if only the United States had not invaded Iraq and instead would have solved the problem of global warming.

He explained that the alleged climate change “is directly related to the growth of terrorism” because it is the reason for “limited amounts of water, limited amounts of land to…grow crops.”

Ban Ki-moon Calls Emergency UN Session on ‘Violence’

Wednesday, October 21st, 2015

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has requested a special closed-door emergency session with the UN Security Council at 10 pm Israel time Wednesday night to brief world leaders on the “violence between Israelis and Palestinians,” as he described it to reporters in Jerusalem.

The UN leader made his request Wednesday morning by video-conference from the Palestinian Authority capital city of Ramallah.

Ban arrived in Israel on a surprise visit to the region, warning of an escalation “into a religious conflict with potential regional implications.”

He told reporters in Jerusalem on Tuesday, “Security measures can be counterproductive if they are applied without special efforts to defuse the situation before people lose their lives.

“My visit reflects the sense of global alarm at the dangerous escalation in violence between Israelis and Palestinians,” Ban declared. “I am here to encourage and support all efforts to lower tensions and prevent the situation from spinning out of control.”

The UN chief expressed his condolences to the families and loved ones of all the victims of the hostilities and terrorist attacks. “No society should have to live in fear,” he said. “No society can afford to see its youth suffer in hopelessness.”

Ban said that ‘if action is not taken fast’ the dynamics on the ground may only get worse, “with serious repercussions in and beyond Israel and Palestine.”

“It is not too late to avoid a broader crisis,” he said. “In my meetings today and tomorrow with the Israeli and Palestinian leadership, I will be appealing to all to take concerted steps to limit new incidents on both sides. Violence only begets violence.”

He said that extremists on either side, or those who think violence is the answer, must not be allowed to further fuel the conflict.

“Beyond the immediate tensions, what is missing is the resolve to restore a political horizon for talks, and a political process that delivers real results and hope,” Ban said. “Violence only undermines the legitimate Palestinian aspirations for statehood and the longing of Israelis for security.”

Underlining that “the status quo is only making things worse,” the Secretary-General stated that ‘this conflict has gone on for far too long.’

“We must, for the future of our children, turn back from this dangerous abyss, safeguard the two-state solution and lead people back onto the road towards peace,” he urged, adding that the UN, and himself as Secretary-General, will ‘continue to support all efforts to create the conditions for a return to meaningful negotiations and a just and lasting peace.’

During his day in Israel, Ban met with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and President Reuven Rivlin. He told the prime minister he understands the duty weighing on him to ensure that his citizens can enjoy safety and security. He also urged Israel to guard against violent incidents, and to conduct thorough investigations when necessary.

“Mr. Prime Minister, the security challenges your government is currently facing raise many complicated dilemmas and may require tightening of security measures,” the UN chief said in a news conference.

“However, security measures can be counterproductive if they are applied without special efforts to defuse situations before people lose their lives. If the use of force is not properly calibrated, it may breed the very frustrations and anxieties, from which violence tends to erupt,” he said.

Arab leaders have accused Israel of “excessive force” used in the response to the savage terror attacks carried out by suicidal young Arabs who are intent on becoming the latest movie star martyr to be featured on Arab TV.

A young teenage Arab girl who disappeared from her home in southern Israel this week happily sent SMS texts to her friends a few days ago that soon “they will see me on TV.”

Ban Ki-Moon Condemns ‘Reprehensible’ Arson of Joseph’s Tomb

Sunday, October 18th, 2015

U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon issued a rare condemnation of Arab violence against Jews but managed to moderate it with a call to “both sides” to respect holy sites.

Reacting to the arson of Joseph’s Tomb (Kever Yosef) last week by Palestinian Authority Arabs, he stated through his spokesman:

This reprehensible act is yet another example of the escalating violence in the region, threatening to further inflame sensitivities owing to the religious significance of Joseph’s Tomb.

And then came the “balance,” lest Israel escape from libel:

The secretary-general calls on all sides to respect the sanctity of all holy sites, refrain from any inflammatory actions or statements and reject the extremist elements that are pursuing a political agenda seeking to transform the current situation into a religious conflict.

After dozens of Palestinian Authority and Jerusalem Arab terror attacks that have resulted in the murders of nearly a dozen Jews, the shock of the arson of the holy site finally prompted PA chairman Mahmoud Abbas to break his silence and condemn the rioters.

His criticism was in stark contrast to his campaign that charges Jews with preventing Muslims from praying at the Temple Mount, even when “praying” means shooting at police at throwing rocks and firebombs at security officers and non-Muslim visitors.

Israeli Cabinet Minister Uri Ariel commented on Facebook:

Torching one of the places holy to the Jewish people is a new low, and a result of Palestinian incitement.

While the Palestinians brazenly lie about us harming the status quo on the Temple Mount, they go out and burn and desecrate the sacred places of Israel, and that won’t be forgiven.

The Foreign Ministry stated:

Israel condemns in no uncertain terms the harm to Joseph’s Tomb committed for the sole reason that it is a place where Jews pray. The torching of Joseph’s Tomb clearly demonstrates what would happen to the holy places in Jerusalem if they were placed in the hands of the Palestinian leadership.

Only Israel can protect the holy places of all religions in Jerusalem.

Israel’s Ambassador to UN Ron Prosor ‘Glad to Come Home’

Thursday, October 15th, 2015

Israel’s outgoing Ambassador to the United Nations, Ron Prosor met with UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to bid farewell this week to the world body in New York. The two men spoke about the Ambassador’s four-year tenure at the UN and the situation in Israel.

The Secretary-General expressed his deep appreciation for Prosor’s contribution and for their collaboration, and Prosor invited the Secretary-General to visit Israel again. On his Facebook page, Prosor continued: “Four years ago, when I arrived at our Mission to the UN, Israel was facing a challenging reality and was fighting in the battle on public opinion. Today, upon my return to Israel, our reality remains complicated.

“Throughout my time here at the UN, I have always said that I walk the halls of the United Nations standing tall and proud, knowing who I represent and what I represent, and I’m going home with this same feeling.

“I have confidence in the resilience of the people of Israel in the face of constant challenges, and I thank the government of Israel and its citizens for the privilege of representing you at the United Nations, an important arena that knows no rest.

“I’m leaving behind here in New York a dedicated and professional team and I know that they will continue doing an incredible job. I wish the incoming Ambassador, Danny Danon, the best of luck and strength to face any future battles, and may he mark many achievements.

“Today, as I complete my tenure as Israel’s Permanent Representative to the UN, I have more faith than ever in the State of Israel and the people of Israel.

“And more than anything, I’m glad to come home.”

Netanyahu Reiterates: Israel Maintaining ‘Status Quo’ on Temple Mount

Thursday, September 17th, 2015

Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu reiterated Thursday night in a conversation with United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon that Israel has no interest in changing the status quo on the Temple Mount in Jerusalem.

Israel is, however, acting against the escalating violence being perpetrated by Palestinian Arabs at the sacred site, he told Ban.

“Israel is strictly maintaining the status quo, Palestinian incitement to the contrary notwithstanding,” Netanyahu told Ban, according to a statement issued by the prime minister’s media adviser.

Both the United States and Jordan have weighed in on the issue, as well as Saudi Arabia; all have expressed deep concern about the increasing violence at the Temple Mount, which is the holiest site in Judaism, and the third holiest place in the world for Islam. Jordan has custodial rights over the Islamic holy sites in Jerusalem in accordance with the terms of the 1994 peace treaty with Israel. Within the past two days, an unconfirmed threat was allegedly issued against Israel by the Arab League, warning there would be “consequences” if the violence at the Temple Mount did not cease.

However, since it is the Palestinian Arabs themselves who are inciting the violence and perpetrating it as well — under the Islamic Waqf Authority which is administered under the custodial rights of the Hashemite Kingdom of Jordan — one can hardly expect a Jewish nation to have more power to end the violence than the Jordanian monarch himself, other than through force of arms.

Security personnel meanwhile have been placed on high alert status in advance of Friday’s “day of rage” declared by Gaza’s ruling Hamas terror organization in solidarity with rioting Palestinian Arabs in Jerusalem.

At least 14 Israeli police officers have been injured this week in violent clashes with Arab attackers at the Temple Mount and around the Jerusalem area.

Sixty-four-year-old Jerusalem resident Alexander Levlovitz was murdered earlier this week by Palestinian Arab terrorists who hurled rocks at his car, smashing his windshield and sending the vehicle careening out of control. His wife and daughter were injured as well.

Hamas Accidentally Admits to Committing War Crimes

Sunday, August 30th, 2015

Hamas is upset with UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon, and are calling on him to resign, and in the process admitted to committing a different act of “unlawful perfidy”, otherwise known as a war crime.

Ban Ki Moon has gone on the record of agreeing with the Israeli timeline on the kidnapping and murder of IDF officer Hadar Goldin in Gaza — that the Hamas attack occurred after the cease fire was in place.

Hams has now decided they don’t like that timeline, as it makes them guilty of breaking the truce, so they’ve come up with a new narrative.

Hamas now says they attacked, kidnapped (and murdered?) the IDF soldier before the ceasefire was in play.

But they decided to add another detail in their statement, apparently as part of their ongoing psychological warfare against Israel, and in part to try and explain how their narrative works in the real world.

Hamas claims that Israel found the body of their fighter Walid Tawfiq Mas’oud, who participated in the ambush of Goldin, and the IDF confused him with the Israeli soldier, because their Hamas fighter, who participated in the Goldin kidnapping/attack, was wearing an IDF uniform.

While the laws of war are split on whether its acceptable to wear an enemy uniform to move forward or retreat, it is clear to all nations that wearing an enemy uniform during an actual attack constitutes “unlawful perfidy” under international law, or in simpler terms, a war crime.

Convention (IV) respecting the Laws and Customs of War on Land and its annex: Regulations concerning the Laws and Customs of War on Land. The Hague, 18 October 1907.

Art. 23. In addition to the prohibitions provided by special Conventions, it is especially forbidden

(f) To make improper use of a flag of truce, of the national flag or of the military insignia and uniform of the enemy, as well as the distinctive badges of the Geneva Convention;

The ICRC further states:

Rule 65. Perfidy Rule 65. Killing, injuring or capturing an adversary by resort to perfidy is prohibited.

Either way, whether Hamas attacked under “a flag of truce” or while wearing a “uniform of the enemy”, Hamas is guilty of a war crime, by their own admission.
