Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations, Danny Danon, responded. The UNSC claimed that there must be a “total ban on terrorism,’ but Danon revealed the emptiness of that statement.


Danon said that “there is one place in the world that this ‘absolute ban on terrorism’ can be ignored.'” Israel, of course.

In the previous four months, Danon noted, there had been virtually daily terror attacks on Israelis by Palestinian Arabs. Israelis were “stabbed in their homes, shot in their street and run over by terrorists,” but not one resolution, not one condemnation, not even one note of concern came from the U.N. Security Council. .

In those months, thirty Israelis were killed and hundreds were injured. And in that same time, there were 12 resolutions issued by the UNSC in which terrorism was condemned.

The UNSC issued resolutions which “condemned terrorism in France, Sinai, Lebanon, Mali, Tunesia, Turkey, Iraq, Syria, Nigeria, Burkino Faso, Somalia and Sudan.” But not in Israel.

Netanyahu echoed Danon’s statement, pointing out that “The UN lost its neutrality and moral force a long time ago and the Secretary General’s remarks do not improve the situation.”
