UN General Assembly votes down Hamas condemnation

Although an impressive 87 member states voted for the resolution to condemn the Palestinian Hamas for rocket attacks, terror tunnels and incendiary balloons against Israeli communities, it fell short of the two-thirds majority for its passage. The motion, tabled by the United States, was overturned by 58 votes against and 32 abstentions

    A simple majority was all that was ever needed to pass such a resolution at the United Nations General Assembly. How did Kuwait and Iran at the last minute pull off this two-thirds needed aberration nonsense? That’s ridiculous. But the U.N. is a meaningless and worthless organization anyhow and either way.

      Shame on Japan, Australia, Norway, Iceland, Jamaica, Switzerland, and Bolivia for playing both sides of this Kuwaiti stunt that has never been used at the U.N. General Assembly before – the requirement of a two-thirds majority.

        Israel helps many countries when they have need. We just have to remember the ones who help Hamas and not bother to help them. Israel will not be missed by them.

    As usual, the Evil Council did what it does best- support and uphold terrorists.

      Why not give to some of the people near the border with Gaza couple mortars and missiles, call them Civil Defense Initiative, and let them freely protest against the Gaza border protests, all while IDF keeps and eye on Hamas just like before?

      Like cures out good!

    In 1947 there was this Arab invasion war, later called also the Nakba war. Following the calls over the radio from the King Farouk I of Egypt and king Talal of Jordan, there voluntary mass run out of Palestine of most of the Arabs, later called “refugees”.

    But today we are 70+ years later and there are no more living refugees, mainly because of the advanced age. Some historians try to say “wait a minute, yes they are all dead, but there are some descendants of the refugees”. The debate could go a long way, but the main point is clear – there is no “refugees” issue, simply because there are no refugees.

    Oh, it is possible that here and there some Arab people went traveling and settling in other countries, rising there children and acquiring for them citizenship. But hey! These citizens of another country are the rightful citizens of that specific country, they may travel only as tourists in Israel and only with a visas and passport.

    Let us take the sample of Khaled Mashal. He travels internationally, which means he has some sort of a passport. Since years he wants to travel to Israel and settle there, but is not clear if as descendant or just for fun. Would not say where exactly, could be in the Israel zone temporarily policed by the Palestinian Authority, or in a kibbutz.

    What to do in his case?

    The right way is to first buy the airline ticket, ask for a tourist visa out of a foreign country with an Israel consulate while presenting himself in person with the ticket and passport in hand, wait for approval, fly in, go to the check out and customs, and then eventually a taxi to the destination. Citizenship application could be discussed with the proper authorities in place.

    The fast way is to show up by surprise with flowers and greetings and to any police station in Israel and insist he is him and is there specifically for tourism or citizenship, depending on the case.

      Before the Gaza invasion by the Arabs in February 2005 there were a lot of Israelis living there.
      Now, they are refugees.
      The only true refugees UN is talking about are Israelis!

    Why would the UN condemn terrorism when they have always supported terrorism? This is not news, it is just a report on the policy of an evil enterprise.

    God has been true to His Word in blessing America because it blesses Israel. However, the next President may be very, very liberal and a supporter of the arabs (muslims), like Hussein was.

    Why would anyone expect the Jew-hating UN to support Israel and condemn its enemies? No wonder the 9-11 terrorists targeted the twin towers instead of the UN building.

    I thought Kuwait was a friend to USA. US was the country that saved Kuwait from being enslaved by Mr. Saddam. I still remember when US saved Kuwait that Kuwaitis retaliated against their Palestinian immigrants who were supportive of Mr. Saddam’s invasion, killed some and expelled around half a million Palestinian out from Kuwait…………. oh well, it is a tribal thing. In tribal law: me and my brother against my cousin then me, my brother and my cousin against the foreigner.
