The UN General Assembly condemns Israel’s “excessive force” in Gaza

Early Thursday, the UN General Assembly voted for an Arab-backed resolution condemning Israel for “excessive use of force” in the Gaza Strip and calling for protection for its Palestinian civilian population.  It referred to the 130 Palestinian casualties in cross-border clashes with Israeli troops. The measure was carried by 120 nations, with 45 abstaining and eight voting against, including the US, Australia and Israel. US Ambassador Nikki Haley proposed amendments to the one-sided resolution that would also condemn Hamas for firing rockets into Israel, inciting violence during the border protests and using resources that could help civilians build terror tunnels to infiltrate Israel. Her proposal failed to obtain the mandatory two-thirds support. Unlike the Security Council, General assembly resolutions are nonbinding.

    UN = United Nahrishkeyt.

    If they think they will appease Islamists by punishing Jews and preventing us from defefending our people and country under constant attack, that tactic will not work. The end result of defending terrorists snd pretending they are civilized is the terrorism and tskeover in Europe. Vote to make your own countries vassal states under Islamists, but leave Israel alone now.

    United [Arab] Nations’ Fake News Network reports: Bloodthirsty Israeli forces approached Gaza with sick intention to kill Palestinians for entertainment. With no potential victims in sight IDF tried to breach the fence. Crowds of alerted Palestinians came out to defend the border. During fierce clashes Palestinians successfully thwarted Israeli invasion, sustaining 130 innocent casualties. Palestinians are asking UN for protection…

    Time for the so called “United Nations” to join the defunct “League of Nations” and replace it with the “Group of Civilized Nations”.

    It grates my nerve that my hard earned tax dollars are supporting the oxymoron called the United Nations.

    The Holy Bible indicates that the God of Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob will punish those nations who come against Israel. They will eventually get their’s. Peace.

    In UN there is a majority who think they could carry a dialog with the Palestinians, for the specific purpose of compromising as a condition for peace. Even worst, they envision UN body observers and possibly troops in Gaza. After a while the will run out disgusted, except if conditions are such that Israel could be blamed every time all the time. This must not happen.

      The historical reason that UN troops have wanted to be on the borders of Israel is to prevent Israel from going after attacking terrorists, not to enforce “peace.” When the Islamists start to attack, the UN “troops” hide like cowards and then write reports and issue condemnations of Israel for defending itself. Now that the Islamists are terrorizing their own European countries, The UN should make pledges to protect Islamic European terrorists and they must NEVER prevent the terrorists from taking over Europe and beyond. In the meantime, Israel should do the opposite as any sane country would do.

    I still think the best thing that could ever happen to Gaza is to bomb it out of existence, . . . plow the ground, . . . sow it in salt, . . . and be done with it.

        Yes, the UN has proven that their global role on the world stage is to boost pro-Islamists and to demonize Israel.

        They have chosen Israel as their enemy and some are leading by example in the EU by giving away their own countries to Islamists. They want Israel to give itself away to Islamists and for Israel to self-destruct entirely and immediately.

        F&*k the UN because they are vile haters… and whatever they want – do the opposite.

    I’ve spent hours verifying all media and Internet, and it appears that the unbelievable voting result seems to be real not Hamas propaganda.
    It follows that the World is a much crooked place than I’ve ever imagined.

    The UN General Assembly condemns Israel’s “excessive force” in Gaza
    Comment –
    So this selfdeceiving UN General Assebly believe that Truth can be established By Mayority Votes.
    I Quote –
    “The measure was carried by 120 nations, with 45 abstaining and eight voting against”!.
    Further –
    “It referred to the 130 Palestinian casualties in cross-border clashes with Israeli troops” !.
    Comment –
    If Israel had used exessive force in Gaza,
    the Death Toll would have been closer to the Numbers of Wounded,
    some 2500.
    This shows that Israel has been wery Restrained in using Deadly Force and only by nesessity.

    This US Assebly seems to be a buch of Naive Jerks to me.
