Hypocrisy: United Nations Chooses To Exclude Israel From List Of Shame


Despite killing over 500 children in Gaza in last summer’s bombardment, Israel was excluded by UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon from the List of Shame – a document outlining armed groups and states that violate children’s rights during conflicts. Hamas, the militant group which traded accusations of gross rights violations with Israel, was also not included by the UN chief.

The UN special envoy for Children And Armed Conflict, Leila Zerrougui, had recommended that both Israel and Hamas, which controls the Gaza Strip, be placed on the list of parties that recruit, use, kill, maim or commit acts of sexual violence against children. At least 561 children (557 Palestinian, four Israeli) were killed and 4,271 injured (4,249 Palestinian and 22 Israeli) in 2014.



Ban, after choosing to ignore observations from within the UN and various rights’ groups plea, said, “The unprecedented and unacceptable scale of the impact on children [as a result of Israeli military operations] in 2014 raises grave concerns about Israel’s compliance with international humanitarian law, notably the principles of distinction, proportionality and precaution in attack, and respect for international human rights law, particularly in relation to excessive use of force.”

Ironically, in November 2013, Ban had launched The Human Rights up Front (HRuF) initiative “to ensure the UN system takes early and effective action, as mandated by the Charter and UN resolutions, to prevent or respond to large-scale violations of human rights or international humanitarian law”.

In August 2014, a total of 129 organizations and prominent individuals called on Ban to either do something or resign in light of his “biased statements… failure to act, and the inappropriate justification of Israel’s violations of international humanitarian law, which amount to war crimes”. But while the Secretary General earlier promised to “spare no effort to ensure that such incidents will never be repeated,” he left Israel off the list.

“Ban’s disappointing decision to override the advice of his special representative by removing Israel and Hamas is a blow to UN efforts to better protect children in armed conflict. Facts and consistency dictated that both be included on the list, but political pressure seems to have prevailed,” said Human Rights Watch’s Philippe Bolopion.

However, Ron Prosor, Israeli ambassador to the UN, welcomed the decision, The UN Secretary General was right not to submit to the dictates of the terrorist organisations and the Arab states in his decision not to include Israel in this shameful list, together with organisations like Isis, al-Qaida and the Taliban. Instead of releasing thousands of reports and lists against Israel, the UN must unequivocally condemn the terrorist organisations that operate in the Gaza Strip.”

The annual list names and shames governments and insurgent groups engaged in conflicts that lead to children’s rights being violated. This year, the report includes groups in Afghanistan, Central African Republic, Congo, Iraq, Mali, Myanmar, Somalia, South Sudan, Sudan, Syria and Yemen as well as government forces in Congo, Somalia, Sudan, South Sudan and Yemen.

  1. Once again, Israel shows it’s outrageous, hypocrisy, narcissism, and sense of entitlement. It even admits that it has accusations against it, and wants us to willfully ignore them and focus on helping them wipe out Palestine. And ya know why they want the Palestinians dead? Because the Palestinians are probably the closest living relatives to the ancient Hebrew Israelites and Jesus. The Jordanians are the closest relatives to King David, and the Bible says that the King of Jordan is to be blessed. The Black African Jews and Sephardic Jews are probably closer to ancient Hebrews, also. That’s why a bunch of East European Russian, Nordic, Turkish Mongoloids of Hunnish stock-who’s original religion was based on Baal worship (not much better than the Canaanite Edomites God told the original hebrews to wipe out and that David tried to wipe out)are so intent on destroying Palestine, sterilizing black Jews, and shitting on sephardics. That’s also why they attacked Jordan AND LOST. They are fake Jews. Synagogue of Satan. They are apostates, Baal worshippers, Phallac worshippers, and Talmudic Pharisees of the ilk Jesus blasted as racial bigots. That’s why a lot of Israel’s founding members were card carrying communist athiests without a drop of jewish blood in them. They were part of the people who massacred millions of Christian Russians in the Russian Holodomor after the Bolshevik revolution, and quite frankly had high ranking guys funding the Holocaust (ask Rabbi Weiss). The first people the Zionists murdered were spiritual jews living in peace with their christian and muslim neighbors in palestine. And now you have a bunch of led astray Christians-paid off by Christian hating fake Jews-and a bunch of fake conservatives-many of them former Trotskyites-leading America to her doom. This would also explain why Israel has one of the highest populations of homosexuals and athiests. And they’re pretty bad about human trafficking of Russian women, too.
    Funny, the churches that support Israel seem to forget that the very same Elite Zionist Jews (not ALL Jews, there are good jews out there, plenty) are the ones promoting all the stuff they don’t like in hollywood, political correctness, abortion, gun control, etc.

  2. I recently left my job when I found out that the CEO of the grocery chain I worked for donated money to Netanyahu’s campaign in Israel. It’s bad enough my tax dollars support Israeli war crimes. My hard work will not be exploited to fund a war criminal as well!

  3. Seems that the obvious is difficult to digest. Any people would protect their children in the tunnels the Palestinian had in Gaza instead of using the kids as human shields. The UN investigated and found out that the Palestinians lied. What a surprise.
