israeli-ambassador-to-the-un-ron-prosorThere is “international understanding that Israel has the right to defend itself and that the reality of rockets being fired into Israel couldn’t continue,” Israel’s envoy to the UN Ron Prosor told Israel Radio following a UN Security Council emergency session dealing with Gaza on Wednesday. “I didn’t hear Abbas or the Palestinian observer to the UN condemn the rocket fire at Israel,” Prosor added. He said it was “the Security Council’s duty to fill the role for which it was created and condemn Hamas and the rocket fire at Israel.”

He told the council that in Israel, “parents and their children should be sleeping in their beds. Instead, they are huddled in bomb shelters. They won’t go to school or to work tomorrow. Their life is paralyzed by Hamas rockets.”

“Israel will not play Russian roulette with the lives of our citizens.” He pointed out that no country had objected when Palestinians were “raining rockets on Israeli civilians,” and that no other nation on earth would tolerate such a situation.
