Ambassador Danon on the Security Council's Hypocrisy
Ambassador Danon at the Security Council's Middle East Debate, January 26, 2016:
"There is one place in the world that this absolute ban on terrorism can be ignored.
Once again, the state of Israel is singled out, and treated differently from all other nations in the world.
During the past four months, Israelis have been stabbed in their homes, shot at in the streets, and run over by terrorists using cars as weapons. Over the course of this wave of violence, thirty people have been killed, and hundreds have been injured.
During this period of time, the Council has adopted twelve resolutions, twelve, against terrorism, and condemned terrorist attacks in France, Sinai, Lebanon, Mali, Tunisia, Turkey, Iraq, Syria, Nigeria, Burkina Faso, Somalia, and Sudan.
Not once were the lives of Israelis murdered by terrorists recognized by this Council.
No condemnation, no expression of solidarity, not even a statement of concern.
The facts don’t lie.
The Security Council has been hypocritical when it comes to Israel. "
