Freedom's Defenders condemns the actions of the United Nations against the sovereign nation of Israel. There is no evidence of any war crimes committed by Israel, but there is evidence of crimes being committed by Hamas terrorists in Gaza. The fact that the United Nations has determined to attack Israel's actions rather than the actions of terrorists once again show how the United Nations has taken sides against the interest of the United States. The failure of the United Nations to recognize Israeli borders, and that organization's insistence that much of the territory granted to Israel is "occupied Palestine" should indicate to the world that the United Nations does not have the ability to lead on this matter. The fact that the United Nations seems to portray the fact that fewer Israeli citizens have died than Gazans as unfair, continues to build the case against the United Nations.
The High Commissioner of the United Nations stated; “I unequivocally reiterate to all actors in this conflict that civilians must not be targeted. It is imperative that Israel, Hamas and all Palestinian armed groups strictly abide by applicable norms of international humanitarian law and international human rights law. Not abiding by these principles may amount to war crimes and crimes against humanity.” It is beyond dispute that Israel does abide by international law. Israel warns the civilians in any area before attacking. Israel repeatedly asks civilians to leave targeted areas, but the Government of Gaza tells the people to ignore Israeli warnings. Israel has even opened field hospitals for the civilian Gazan victims of the conflict.
Terrorists in Gaza have fired thousands of rockets into civilian areas of Israel. The only reason the death toll of Israel is lower than the death toll of Gaza is because Israel has superior technology, and is able to intercept the missiles destined for Israeli civilians. Gaza does not have this technology, nor do they want it, the government of Gaza does not allow their citizens access to bomb shelters. The government of Gaza wishes to use their people as shields, in order to make Israel look bad. Israel's only wish is to live in peace and defend her citizens -- Hamas terrorists have made that impossible.
Freedom's Defenders condemn the UN's actions and call for an investigation into the actions of Gaza and full military and economic support behind the Nation of Israel.
Pray for the Peace of Jerusalem. God bless Israel.
