UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon showed his bias and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu condemned his words this week in a heated exchange.
Netanyahu blasts UN’s Ban: “Your remarks are a tailwind for terror“ Speaking to the UN Security Council in a session on the current situation in the Middle East, Ban condemns terror wave, but says it is ‘human nature to react to occupation’… Netanyahu accused UN Secretary- General Ban Ki-moon on Tuesday of supporting Palestinian terrorism.
“It is human nature to react to occupation, which often serves as a potent incubator of hate and extremism,” Ban had told a Security Council meeting in New York.
In what became a war of words, Netanyahu shot back: “The secretary-general’s remarks provide a tailwind for terrorism. There is no justification for terrorism. Those Palestinians who murder do not want to build a state, they want to destroy a state and they say this openly.”
Ban made his remarks on the same day that terrorist victim Shlomit Krigman, 23, was buried in Jerusalem. The young woman was fatally stabbed on Monday evening by two Palestinian terrorists. Jerusalem Post 1-26-16
Ban Ki-Moon later tried to walk back his remarks, but the damage was done. By using the excuse of “human nature” to describe the Palestinian terror attacks, he indeed justifies the terror. He links resistance to “occupation” with human nature. The problem is that the specific type of resistance employed by terrorist is not human, it is demonic. It is not “natural” to send 13-year-old boys and girls to stab women while they are simply shopping. Shlomit Krigman was buried the same day as Ban’s remarks. The 23-year-old was grocery shopping when stabbed to death by two Palestinians, one of which was 17 years old. Stabbing innocent civilians is not legitimate “resistance to occupation.”
Update: Terrorist murderer’s mother and sister throw candy celebrating his “martyrdom.”
This is not only an Israel problem. This perverse form of rationalizing is spreading everywhere. It is part of prophesied “last days.”
Perilous Times and Perilous Men
But know this, that in the last days perilous times will come: For men will be lovers of themselves, lovers of money, boasters, proud, blasphemers, disobedient to parents, unthankful, unholy, unloving, unforgiving, slanderers, without self-control, brutal, despisers of good, traitors, headstrong, haughty, lovers of pleasure rather than lovers of God, having a form of godliness but denying its power. And from such people turn away! 2 Timothy 3:1-5
