Posted on 05/17/2004 2:12:58 PM PDT by SJackson
Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz announced today (Sunday) that UNWRA (United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees) ambulances were used to steal and transport body parts of Israeli soldiers killed in last Wednesdays bomb attack on the Philadelphi route in southern Gaza. The senior minister called upon UN Secretary-General Kofi Anan to address the disturbing phenomenon.
At todays cabinet meeting, Foreign Minister Silvan Shalom said that the UN ambulance, which had also been used to transport terrorists, had been captured by security forces near the Philadelphi area. He said that only after intense diplomatic pressure did UNRWA announce that it would conduct an internal investigation into the matter. He issued a call to UN Secretary-General Kofi Anan as well, urging him to conduct an external audit examining the extent of the involvement of the UN aid program with terrorism.
It was initially reported, following a press conference by the Gaza division commander Brigadier-General Shmuel Zakai, that Israel had documented evidence showing Palestinian terrorists using ambulances disguised as United Nations vehicles. Following the capture of the vehicles used, it became clear that they were genuine UN vehicles.
UN spokesman Fred Eckhard said the UN Secretary-General, Kofi Annan, was aware of the allegations made through the media by Defense Minister Shaul Mofaz. "Both he and the Commissioner-General of [the UN Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees (UNWRA)] take such accusations very seriously," he said.
UNRWA issued a statement claiming armed terrorists threatened the lives of an UNWRA ambulance team and forced them to transport an injured gunman and two of his armed colleagues to a hospital in Gaza City last week.
In the October 2000 abduction of three soldiers from the northern border, Hizbullah also used UN vehicles to kidnap the soldiers who were all killed.

transport BODY PARTS???
These are barbarians...
I bet that doesn't make HEADLINE NEWS either, only a slight mention.
Who ever thought otherwise?
Well, aside from the US press...
Israel needs to shoot any UN personnel on sight, they are clearly enemy units on the battlefield.
Compare this with the reality of current events and Islam.
Why the hell didn't Atta hit the UN building on 9-1-1???
That's how I picture the u.n. being used.
Get the U.S. out of the socialist anti American u.n. and get the u.n. out of the U.S.
Why hit friends?
Oh, yeah, THAT will get it done.
If the UN cannot keep its people from being used in atrocities, it better cut and run. That is of course, assuming that the UN is not lying through its teeth and its memebers are willing accomplices in said atrocities.
do we really need any more evidence that the UN is irrelevant and anti-semite?
This is what they look like.
How in hell do we get rid of the UN? This is disgusting.
Nope, not barbaric ...
Look folks ... this is a spiritual war ... a war between God and Satan.
We in America have traditionally sided with God against all others and have been blessed for it.
The time is upon us.
Given the membership of the organization -- only one other nation stands with Israel, and even then not always -- I wouldn't be surprised if more than a few UN types had no problem in using ambulances for Pali goals.
Filtching body parts of dead Israelis to trade for live killers? Bad bargain. Parts for parts, if they want to play that way.
..."...the UN ambulance, which had also been used to transport terrorists..."...
Caught "red handed" transporting body parts?
