Hamas used children as human shields and launched attacks from mosques and hospitals, but the dhimmi tool Ban Ki-Moon said nothing about that.
The Goldstone Report was a propaganda piece funded by the Organization of the Islamic Conference — but the dhimmi tool Ban Ki-Moon says nothing about that, either.
The Iranian Supremo recently met with the top dog of Hamas and also called Israel a “dangerous cancer tumor.” But about that the dhimmi tool Ban Ki-Moon was silent.
“Ban to Gazans: We stand with you,” by Tovah Lazaroff for the Jerusalem Post, March 21:
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon on Sunday praised Israel for showing a “great love of humanity” in Haiti, even as he attacked its actions in Gaza, which he said caused “unacceptable suffering.” […]
On the eve of Ban’s visit – his third since becoming secretary-general on January 1, 2007 – Israel took a small step toward meeting his demand with respect to the Gaza crossings, when it agreed to ease its restriction on building material to allow for the construction of 150 homes in Khan Yunis, a flour mill, a sewage treatment plant and classrooms.
During a morning visit to Khan Yunis, Ban told members of its civil society that the measure was a “positive, welcome step,” but that “we need far, far more. This is like a drop in a bucket of water.”
He noted that since his previous visit to Gaza 15 months ago, little reconstruction work had been done to repair the damage caused by Operation Cast Lead.
“It is quite distressing for me to see all the damage,” Ban said.
He called on Israel to fully open its passages into Gaza, which have been closed to all but humanitarian aid since Hamas seized control of the Strip in 2007.
Ban attacked Israel’s closure policy, which he said was “wrong” and “not sustainable.” He added that “it causes unacceptable suffering of human beings and particularly to people and population in Gaza.”
In addition, he said, it “prevents legitimate commerce and encourages smuggling. It undercuts moderates and empowers extremists.”
People on both sides of the conflict should refrain from violence, said Ban, as he condemned both the Gazan rocket attacks and IDF actions, including its fatal shooting of two Palestinians in Iraq Burin near Nablus over the weekend.
“I urge all Gazans to choose the path of nonviolence, Palestinian unity and international legitimacy,” Ban said….
Yeah, that’s going to happen.
He lauded the “quiet courage” and “heroism” of the people who live in Gaza.
“My message to the people of Gaza is this: The United Nations will stand with you and continue to support you so that you can overcome all this human suffering.”…
