UN resolution slams Israeli murder of Palestinians in Gaza

A resolution has passed in the UN General Assembly slamming Israel’s use of ‘excessive force’ against Palestinian protesters during their Great March of Return in Gaza, with more than 130 killed and thousands injured.

Many of the protesters were unarmed but encountered live ammunition from Israeli snipers. Victims included journalists and first aid responders, who were well marked but were targeted and slaughtered anyway.

Nikki Haley, the American UN envoy, was adamantly opposed to the resolution and submitted an amendment of her own in which Hamas was to be condemned as the aggressor, with no attention being paid to the death toll racked up by the Israelis who were not being attacked by civilian protesters, which failed to obtain the necessary support in the Assembly.

RT reports:

The UN General Assembly has adopted a nonbinding resolution condemning Israel’s use of ‘excessive force’ against Palestinian protesters in Gaza. A US amendment to condemn Hamas did not get enough support.

The resolution condemns Israel for “excessive use of force” against Palestinian demonstrators on the Israeli-Gaza border and calls for the “protection of the Palestinian civilian population” in Gaza. It was adopted with 120 votes in favor and eight votes against, with 45 abstentions.

The amendment offered by US envoy Nikki Haley sought to condemn Hamas, which runs the elected government in Gaza, for firing rockets at Israel. The amendment received 62 votes in favor, with 58 nations opposed and 42 abstaining. It needed a two-thirds majority to pass, however, so it was not included in the final resolution.

The nearly identical resolution proposed by Kuwait was vetoed by the US in the Security Council on Tuesday. Unlike the Security Council resolutions, those adopted in the General Assembly are non-binding.

Haley condemned the adopted resolution as “morally bankrupt.”

“The resolution is one-sided, makes not one mention of Hamas which routinely initiates violence,” the US envoy said during the debate preceding the vote, adding that “What makes Gaza different is that attacking Israel is their favorite political sport.”

Israeli ambassador Danny Danon slammed the resolution as “empowering Hamas” and the countries that support it as “colluding with a terrorist organization.”

“I have a simple message for those who support this resolution. You are the ammunition for Hamas’s guns, you are the warheads for its missiles,” he said.

Over 130 Palestinians have been killed by Israeli forces during the protests along the border with Gaza that began on March 30. The deadliest day so far has been May 14, when the US embassy officially moved from Tel Aviv to Jerusalem.

“We cannot remain silent in the face of the most violent crimes and human rights violations being systematically perpetrated against our people,” said Riyad Mansour, Palestinian envoy to the UN.

In another area in which the US supports violence against unarmed civilians, the US continues to back the Israelis in their aggressions against the Palestinian people. America has been increasingly making itself the odd man out in international affairs as of late, so why drop out of that role now? Even when the Israelis are publicly the ones doling out the greater degree of death and suffering, they are continually peddled by the US as the victims of a people who suffer blockades of nearly every human necessity and armed violence from the Israeli government, which perceives them nearly as subhumans.

Ha ha – another fail by the miserable jew-cocksucker Nicky Hailey. “Even when the Israelis are publicly the ones doling out the greater degree of death and suffering, they are continually peddled by the US as the victims of a people who suffer blockades of nearly every human necessity and armed violence from the Israeli government, which perceives them nearly as subhumans”. Actually, the word ‘nearly’ at the end of the above sentence is not true or necessary. Jews actually believe ALL Palestinians (and all other goy too) ARE subhuman, as decreed to them by their genocidal talmud. People don’t… Read more »

While the United States complains endlessly about the United Nations’ approach to Israel, here is an article that looks at which nations actually back Washington’s views on Israel at the UN:

It is quite clear that Israel’s agenda has met with widespread condemnation by the member states of the United Nations.

The US clumsily defending the killing of journalists, medics and unarmed people including women and kids? Sounds like standard operating procedure when we’re talking about Israel, but the US also reserves the right to use the same argument to justify invading and killing thousands in regime change ops. Interesting how that works. Any nation not embarrassed enough to keep Nikki Haley out of the UN is intellectually bankrupt, forget morally.

Maybe if they stopped trying to invade Israel, Israel would stop killing them. If you break into my house, I will shoot you!!!! Your family might sue me, but YOU won’t.

It’s not that I disagree with the article, but the way in which it critisizes Israel is just way too soft. After so many deaths and Israeli snipers masacring hundreds of unarmed Palesinian protesters for TARGET PRACTICING, the tone of the critique should be MUCH, MUCH MORE DAMNING: Instead of “Many of the protesters were unarmed”, it should state”: “Most protesters were unarmed” (while the few arms around were nothing more than slingshots). Instead of “Even when the Israelis are publicly the ones doling out the greater degree of death and suffering”, it should factually read: “Even when the Israelis… Read more »

Israeli ambassador Danny Danon said: “I have a simple message for those who support this resolution. You are the ammunition for Hamas’s guns, you are the warheads for its missiles” and Nikki Haley condemned the adopted resolution as “morally bankrupt.”

Why do their remarks and comments have increasingly begun to reflect their own thoughts and actions? It appears as if they look at others through a mirror without realizing they are in fact looking at their own reflection… but then that is how delusion works I guess…

The good news, the big story, is that Israel is losing. It’s losing in Syria, it’s lost in Iraq; the Shiites are in charge there; its Kurdish allies have been betrayed by Washington and are now going to settle with Damascus; Israel has only succeeded in making Iran more resistant to sanctions and attack by Israel and the US; Hezbollah is strengthened; now Jordan is moving away from Washington and Saudi bribery and toward alliance with Iran, Russia, and China; and of course now their state terrorist apartheid policies toward Gaza is strengthening the global BDS movement which will eventually… Read more »
