United Nations: Arab nations are calling for an emergency meeting of the U.N. Security Council and immediate action to end what they say is Israel's "outrageous onslaught" against Palestinians, especially in Gaza.
Palestinian UN envoy Riyad Mansour and ambassadors representing Arab, Islamic and non-aligned nations say that they expect an urgent council meeting to be held very soon. They spoke to reporters after meeting the Security Council president.
"We want the Security Council to shoulder its responsibility and stop this aggression against our people," Mansour said.

I am sure the Arabs will complain about the 200 rockets fired at Israel
Get them all together and eliminate the problem.
Obama is the “reverse King Midas”, everything he touches turns to $h!+.
The Apocalypse is fast encroaching...
Israel ought to roll over them and claim so much territory that it makes the Six Day War look like a joke.
The Jews started shooting back!
perhaps this time the Israeli ambassador will just skip the UNazi meeting and go play golf like the NaziInChief?
F the UN!!
Obama/Kerry to chime in in 3-2-1.
Everything was hunky dory when Israel was just embracing the suck. Now its time for the Fakestinians to eat their peas.
This is where Israel always loses in the court of world opinion. By the time the world here's the Palestinian story, the world's majority will be congratulating them for showing restraint.
Always happens. Israel loses in court of public opinion because they do not think things through. They do not build a solid case BEFORE they take any action.
So look for this to happen at the Security Council:
The Palestinians will claim they were driven to firing rockets due to the increased Israeli oppression.
They'll roll out the tapes of the IDF shooting unarmed Palestinian teens and brutally beating an American teen. The charges of "collective punishment" in the aftermath of the three kidnappings will fly against Israel with the "testimony" that hundreds of Palestinians have been arrested who are being held without charge or trial--including elected representatives of the people. They will show proof of the destroyed homes of the families of the suspected kidnappers.
Then there will be the videos (filmed by the media mainly) of the extraordinary use of force against a people able only to use slingshots versus a world class military state complete with American-provided weapons, planes and "iron dome". The Palestinians will list the names of those killed by the IDF and photo after photo of children sitting outside the rubble of his or her family home; courtesy, of course, of Israeli superior and rampant military rage.
And it will all be brought back to the kidnappings. No longer an offense just against Israel because the world will be reminded that a Palestinian teenager was kidnapped and burned alive by six Israelis.
*Deep sigh*. This happens every few years. And every few years Israel takes another geopolitical "hit". Except now BDS is primed to explode.
All of this, of course, is just my two cents.
kidnappings and MURDERS and one of them also an American apparently
Did the “Arab Nations” say “Israel's “outrageous onslaught” or the “Zionest Entity's” “outrageous onslaught?”
Collective punishment is rounding up groups of people and jailing them without benefit of a charge or a trial. Hundreds were rounded up in Gaza...the net was wide and people were taken without stated cause or proof. And homes were destroyed belonging to the families of the suspects ... before a trial and conviction.
It's actions like these that gets Israel in trouble with the rest of the world and ramps up calls for "BDS", and worse.
I simply wish Israel would think a little before plowing through. Ultimately they hurt themselves more than even their enemy.
They need to get it over in one huge plow.
