Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, who leaves his post in two weeks, blamed Israel for the Arab violence in a scathing speech in Jakarta

His speech, delivered by a U.N. official in Indonesia, was one of his most off-balanced anti-Israel addresses ever.

He was preaching to the chorus, as evidenced by the lengthy title of the conference, called “the Meeting of the United Nations Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People and the Organization of Islamic Cooperation (OIC) on the Question of Jerusalem.”

With the title “the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People,” Ban could not be expected to preach Zionism, but his wholesale blame for Israel as the cause for Arab violence is subtle incitement for more Arab terror.

Some of his choice remarks were:

The anger we are witnessing is bred from nearly five decades of Israeli occupation.

It is the result of fear, humiliation, frustration and mistrust.

It has been fed by the wounds of decades of bloody conflict, which will take a long time to heal. Palestinian youth in particular are tired of broken promises and they see no light at the end of the tunnel.

Obviously, there was no mention of the openly-stated Palestinian Authority agenda that incites children to kill Jews and constantly displays the map of Israel as “Palestine.”

Ban also did not relate to Arab pogroms ever since the “First Aliyah” that marked the beginning of the will of Jews to re-establish the State of Israel.

Nor did he explain the “fear, humiliation, frustration and mistrust” as causes for the Arab nation’s going to war against Israel instead of accepting the U.N. Partition Plan in 1947, for the War of Attrition in the 1950s, or for seven Arab countries preparing to annihilate Israel in the Six-Day War in 1967.

He called for “a negotiated solution” for a “sustainable Palestinian State [[to] be established and Jerusalem emerge as a capital of two States, with arrangements for the holy sites acceptable to all.”

There was no indication of what compromise might be offered by the Palestinian Authority.

As for Israel, he damned “the settlement enterprise [that[….threatens to close the window of opportunity to reach the two-State goal.” He also condemned Israel’s policy of demolishing homes of terrorists, whose murder of Jews, according to him, is caused by Israel.

Ban probably will be succeeded by a leader from Eastern Europe. When Ban took his post from in 2006, it was thought no one could have been worse for Israel than his predecessor Kofi Annan.

Ban proved everyone wrong, and there is every reason to suspect his successor will be even worse.

  1. You puppet. Of Islamic countries you hypocrite , In Jeruslem as well as the west bank Judea and Samaria has had the highest standard of living than anywhere in the apartheid Muslim countries, the so-called occupation has raised the standard of living 10 fold since 1967, complete freedom until the PA controlled some of the area where women and children have lost a great deal under cruel corrup of the PA Hamas. Are you blind to reality how Sunni and Shiite Moslems have been viciously killing each other in the Arab middle east. Moslems in Israel live a high standard of life an the protection of the Osraeli Defence Forces has increased the safety of zChristian, Moslem, and Jews in the West Bank so familes can cout on the protection and freedoms they all enjoy Israel has been a safe haven for all Middle East minorities. You above all should point this. Out you should be above the propaganda. Machine you fund.

  2. WHAT A SAD SPECIMEN OF HUMAN TRASH-
    A MAN GIVEN GREAT AUTHORITY UNDER THE ASSUMPTION OF HAVING GREAT OBJECTIVITY-

    AND HE DEMONSTRATES AND VOCALIZES TIME AND AGAIN, THE LIES THAT iSRAEL IS TO BLAME FOR THE
    PAL PROBLEMS. THAT HE CANNOT ADDRESS ANY REMEDIES TO THE PALS SHOWS HOW CORRUPT
    THIS MAN BECAME. hE DOES AN INJUSTICE TO THE JOB
    AND SHAMES HIS FELLOW KOREANS BY NOT TELLING
    THE TRUTH. GOOD RIDDANCE!

  3. He needs big Muslim bucks now that he is to retire to sunny fabulous South Korea. They are an incredibly amazing people. They leave out unwanted babies to die on the streets but when a minister attempted to help the babies by leaving them with him, in a drop box situation, the establishment was furious ,not at killing of infants, but this minister who dared to admit babies are killed in the thousands in South Korea due to abandonment.

  4. Ban Ki Moon, what an idiot.

    Islam itself must be outlawed and eradicated.

    And just because there are 1.8 billion Muslims, that does not make the problem insurmountable but rather simply a larger problem. And thus it needs to be dealt with initially in a different fashion.

    Search for the following:

    "Learn about Islam. That is the most important thing for people to do. Learn who it is that you are not." – Samuel Lurie

    “The Hour will not be established until you fight with the Jews, and the stone behind which a Jew will be hiding will say. O Muslim! There is a Jew hiding behind me, so kill him.”- Bukhari (52:177); Hadith (Website: The Religion of Peace)

  5. ban ki moon is liar , he knows the truth who started the terror attacks ! time after time Israel has showed him the truth and proof and still ban ki moon acting like an idiot and a jerk, I hope the next person who takes over ban ki moon job will be open minded and not be one sided!

  6. Actually the reason this “Intifada” or terrorism by terrorists of all ages and gender and sizes, is due to the degrading terrorism and control of themselves by themselves… abuse and degradation is rampant, but so long as they follow their ‘faith’ and obey their leaders, who are clever, and use Israel as a scapegoat, and use the media like the spin doctors they are, one lie is as good as 10,000 lies… the UN is rife with immoral, weak and ‘politically correct’ behaviour… they have the truth, and choose to ignore and bury it, so that funding from Arab sources continues…

  7. Just like our government, the UN is run by the muslim brotherhood. They are going to everyday make a statement somewhere in this country to outrage the tax payers and slowly get us all use to the fact that they run this country and just like all over europe, they are calling the shots. .

  8. IF SUCH A DECREE IS TRUE, THEN I HAVE TO CONCUR THAT BAN KI-MOON IMMEDIATELY FROM ALL ASSOCIATIONS TO ISRAEL, OF ISRAEL, AND INDEED SEND HIM A BAG OR RICE NOT LACED WITH COCAINE.. SERIOUSLY SPEAKING, WHAT OF HELL IS HE ON TO EVEN CONCLUDE SUCH A DECREE THE BLIND IDIOT, OR DID HE BOW CHOW MEIN TO OBAMA FOR A CHIP IN HIS RETARD MAD HEAD ??..

  9. Ban Ki-moon seems to be a very ignorant person, which is strange given the position he has. In 1967 these territories Israel won in a legitimate manner. Before 1967 Judea and Samaria were occupied by Jordan. Israel won the war by which these territories are Israeli. The occupation of the Palestinians has been caused by the pressure of nations including the organization Ban Ki-moon presides. Israel has agreed to give these territories in exchange for peace. The same happened with Gaza. That city was given because it was promised Israel peace. What made the Palestinians and other terrorist organizations? Turn Gaza into a base of missile attack against Israel. Ban Ki-moon now has the nerve to blame the violence in Israel to the "occupation". What infortunated is that the ignorance reigns among those who has great power of decision!

  11. No, Mr. Moon, the intifada is a contiuation of over 1400 years of Islam murdering Jews. It is simply the fulfillment of one of Mohammad’s commands, and a continuation of our history in the Arabian Peninsula.

  12. How may someone think that the U.N. can take right decisions when 57 MUSLIM STATES are supporting the so – called Palestinian Sate ( or Authority , or whatever) , which was invented by the soviet propaganda in the early 60 `s . Almost all the Arabian states support directly or indirectly the TERRORISM, INCLUDING the so callled moderates ! Every people on Earth has the right to live in the country of their ancesters , even if their ancesters came later in historical time and settled in that place . The Arabs came into the Middle East in the 7 th century After Christ and conquered the ancient Egypt , the ancient Phoenicia, Israel , the Northern Africa , Spain and half of France . Now ISIS wants to restore the Caliphate of the Middle Ages and more than that they want to conquer the whole Europe and even more. Why the Jews cannot live in the country where their ancestors settled 5.000 years ago , and they built up that country , the have been a respected kingdom , they had a respected culture , they have written the BIBLE , they have built the TEMPLE and so on … Why ISRAEL cannot defend itself from any agression ? Why defending its people and its territory is considered as being an aggression ? The Arabs have many milions of square kilometres of land , most of it being uninhabited, they have many billions of dollars from the oil exports , they are about THREE HUNDRED MILLION people , they are ONE PEOPLE LIVING IN TWENTYONE or TWENTYTWO STATES . They call themselves Lybians, Algerians, Egyptians, Tunisians, etc…. but they are one nation , one people , having the same language , the same ethnic origin, the same culture , the same religion , etc…. The Americans who live in 50 states DO NOT CALL THEMSELVES AS : Dakotans , Kentuckians, Georgians , Minnesotans , etc…. they are all AMERICANS ! SO IT IS NECESSARY TO FIND A WAY TO MAKE PEACE BETWEEN THE ARABS AND THE JEWS ! Israel is a tiny country having less than 25.000 square kilometres and less than 9 million inhabitants ( out of which 2 million are Arabs, who have a better life than in most of the Arabian countries ) There is useless to try to make peace with the so-called Palestinians , because it was already proved that for more than four decades the negociations lead NOWHERE !
