The authoritative conservative Israeli paper, the Jerusalem Post reports that this was the Security Council’s first official condemnation of a terror attack carried out by Palestinians on Israelis since the beginning of the current wave of violence that begun this fall.
In recent years, the UN seem to have lost its way, with institutional bias against Israel from a pro-Islam lobby – this is part of the propaganda that is being espoused by the extreme left, including the sponsors of Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the UK’s Labour Party.
For institutions like the UN to be effective, they must apply the same high standards to every country, irrespective of political lobbying. Most importantly all acts of terrorism must be denounced. It is time for the return of order and international law.
The Tel Aviv attack was weak, cowardly and completely unlawful. The perpetrators and their sponsors must be brought to account. The world’s sympathy should rightly be for the families of the victims.
