Zionist Federation on UN resolution


The Zionist Federation of New Zealand condemns the latest anti-Israel resolution by the UN General Assembly on 11 June 2018. It seems preposterous that only one country, Israel, is condemned for defending its people, that only one country, Israel, is expected to sit by and let its border be breached by a hostile nation. It seems only one country, Israel, is expected to sit back and watch its people get murdered.

It is inconceivable to accuse Israel of “excessive, disproportionate and indiscriminate use of force” when Hamas and Islamic Jihad themselves have admitted that 85% of those killed where their own operatives, and that their women and children would sacrificed to prevent normalisation of relations with Israel. These are recognised terrorists organisations whose own leaders called upon their members to breach the border fence to murder Israel soldiers and civilians. That at least 85% of those killed were terrorists amid the literal smoke and mirrors and thousands of people on the border shows Israel was far from indiscriminate and very precise with the measures it took.

Those who have condemned Israel have yet to come up with an alternative solution that Israel could have taken, except, like Prime Minister Ardern, that under the name of “proportionality” Israel should have let Israelis be killed to satisfy the international community, some of whom, like New Zealand, are allegedly Israel’s friends.

Israel, like all countries, has the right to defend its borders and protect its people.
