So far, Ban has refused to retract his statement in which he appeared to legitimize Palestinian terror, and which is now being used by terrorists to justify their heinous actions.
Addressing the UN Security Council last month, the secretary-general urged Israel to freeze settlement-building, calling it “an affront to the Palestinian people.” He also expressed understanding of Palestinian frustrations, saying that “as oppressed peoples have demonstrated throughout the ages, it is human nature to react to occupation.”
UN spokesman Stephane Dujarric said that Ban “stands by every word he has used.”
“The UN Secretary General’s remarks give a tailwind to terrorism,” a furious Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu stated in response. “There is no justification for terrorism. The Palestinian murderers do not want to build a state – they want to destroy a state and they say this openly. They want to murder Jews simply because they are Jews, and they say this openly. They do not murder for peace and they do not murder for human rights.”
“The UN lost its neutrality and moral force a long time ago and the Secretary General’s remarks do not improve the situation,” the Israeli leader asserted.
