United Disgrace: Ban Ki-moon Condemns ‘Atrocious’ Gaza Killings, Again Calls for Israel’s “Restraint”

11

ban-ki-moonUN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has condemned the killing of dozens of Palestinians in the Gaza Strip by Israeli shelling as an “atrocious action” and called for an immediate end to almost two weeks of fighting.

Ban’s comments on Sunday came before a UN Security Council emergency meeting on Gaza early today that was convened at the request of Jordan. It also comes as ¬†ecretary of State John Kerry is heading back to the Middle East as the Obama administration attempts to bolster regional efforts to reach a ceasefire.

Ban, in Doha on the first leg of a Middle East tour, met Qatar’s Emir Sheikh Tamim bin Hamad al-Thani, Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas and Qatari Foreign Minister Khaled al-Attiya before heading for Egypt.

“While I was on route to Doha, dozens more civilians have been killed in the Israeli military strikes . . . in Gaza … I condemn the atrocious action,” he said in a statement after talks with Attiya. “Israel must exercise maximum restraint. I repeat my demands to all sides that they must respect international humanitarian law. The violence must stop now,” he added.

  1. PLEASE ACCUSE THE CORRECT PARTY FOR THIS SUFFERING —HAMAS…LET ISRAEL FINISH THEIR JOB….AS LONG AS HAMAS AND ITS WEAPONRY AND TUNNELS EXIST , NO REAL QUIET CAN OCCUR LONG-TERM. SO PLEASE STOP POINTING A FINGER AT THE IDF AND CRITICIZE THE CORRECT PARTY WHIO IS RESPONSIBLE FOR THE KILLINGS AND MISERY OF ALL SIDES…….

  2. They are excersizing restraint!
    They’re not nuking them!
    The Israeli army set up hospital services for their enemies wounded! Where on Earth has that ever happened anytime in history? They’re using leaflets, ‘knock-on-the-roof’ method and cell phone calls ahead of a bombing to avoid civilian casualties! When in the history of the world has this occurred? Their enemies have been shooting missiles from homes, hospitals and school buildings – indiscriminately at civilians – and the Israelis are being asked to restrain? The enemy has spent billions in aid for their people to build tunnels to enable them to attack in civilian neighborhoods and the Israelis are being asked for restraint??
    You’re nuts!

  3. Do you know what is really atrocious? The UN giving Hamas 20 rockets to fire at innocent civilians. The UN has blood on its hands. Does that bother you Mr Ki-moon. I’ld be suprised.

  4. The chumash says we have nothing to do with the nations of the world just like the animal kingdom we both inhabit the Earth the only time our paths cross is in the ZOO!

  5. Did he do the same when they where being bombed and thousands of missiles were raining down on them. Or did he call on osreal to show restraint

  6. Is this disgraced leader coming to observe how UNWRA rockets are being properly handed over to Hamas for use!!!

  7. Arabs killing thousands of Arabs in Syria garners no UN “response”.

    Jews killing hundreds of Arabs in the Gaza is front and center at the UN.

  8. BTW — Maybe Mr. Ban-Ki Moon ought to take a little trip to Gaza himself urge Hamas’ cowardly leaders to actually agree to a ceasefire. After all, Israel has already agreed to at least two prior ceasefires that Hamas has total ignored.
