UN’s Ban Ki-Moon Blasts Israel’s Gaza Blockade; “It Is a Collective Punishment”



Breaking Israel News: “United Nations (UN) Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon accused Israel of enforcing a “suffocating” and “stifling” blockade on the Gaza Strip during a visit to the Hamas-controlled enclave on Tuesday.

“The closure of Gaza suffocates its people, stifles its economy and impede reconstruction effort, it is a collective punishment for which there must be accountability,” declared Ban.

Ban, known for being a strong critic of Israel, even going so far as to defend the terrorists attacking innocent Israelis and Jews in Israel’s most recent terror wave by saying that it is “human nature to react to occupation”, is in Israel for a quick 48-hour visit which includes trips to Palestinian territories.

He spoke from a school run by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), a humanitarian UN body specifically created for Palestinian refugees which operates in Gaza.”

Opinion: Our post from yesterday, “Arutz Sheva reported that the Hamas rocket arsenal is now rebuilt as are most of the terror tunnels”, underscores the need for the blockade.

Hamas was able to import rocket and tunnel building supplies even with the blockade, imagine what they could do with no restrictions?

No humanitarian supplies are blocked.

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) was created to be an apologist for the Arab peoples who call themselves Palestinians, and Ban Ki Moon is their cheerleader.

One of UNRWA’s first acts was to change the definition of a refugee from those people forced to leave a habitual home, to any Arab whose normal place of residence was Palestine between June 1946 and May 1948, who lost their homes as a result of the 1948 Arab/Israel conflict.

UNRWA then extended the definition of refugee to the descendants of those refugees, including legally adopted children.

Presto, wham-o, magic-o, 5 to 13 million instant refugees.
