Israel came under fire once again at the United Nations, this time for defending itself against Iran-backed terrorists in Gaza who fired 1100 rockets into the country over the weekend.
An emergency Security Council session was called at the behest of Norway and Ireland in the wake of the 66-hour escalation between Israel and Gaza.
The Palestinian envoy to the U.N., as well as Egypt’s and the UAE’s, all heavily criticized Israel and failed to mention PIJ at all. Incredibly, western countries, including Norway, France and Ireland also omitted mention of the rocket hurling terror group.
Egyptian Ambassador to the U.N. Osama Abdel Khalek denounced Israeli actions in Gaza and called for an end to its blockade, which Israel imposed because of the Hamas terror group’s tendency to smuggle in weapons and materials for building terror tunnels.
