AP via JPost ^ | 1/4/8

Posted on 01/03/2009 8:56:00 PM PST by SmithL

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon Ban telephoned Prime Minister Ehud Olmert ahead of an emergency meeting of the UN Security Council Saturday night and said he was disappointed that Israel launched a ground offensive and "alarmed that this escalation will inevitably increase the already heavy suffering" of Palestinian civilians, the UN spokesman's office said in a statement.

I think I would have told him to FO, and I will call him back when we have finished the job. Then after finishing the job, I would call him back and tell him he has 24 hours to get Iran and Hezbollah under control or we will get it under control ourselves....

A shame that they can’t take out the UN building while they are at it.

Exactly.

Maybe Ban could contact Egypt and request sanctuary for the Palestinians.

It might be a sin to say it, but he should be glad I'm not in charge. After the murderous actions of Hamas against Israel, if I had any say in the response to those acts, I would give new meaning to the phrase "heavy suffering".

USELESS UN ~ “Where were the emergency sessions of the Security Council when for seven months Hamas missiles targeted 500,000 Israelis? Why was there no U.N. late night sessions then?

And why didn’t those same demonstrators who now condemn Israel take to the streets when Israeli civilians faced daily rocket attacks for those seven months?”

It's way past time to rotate hosting the UN building and all those diplomats.

The UN should change continents every decade, with Antartica exempted. For the next two rotations in North America, Mexico and Canada could raise their hands offering to host. That would mean the UN is OUT OF THE US for at least 180 years.

First up could be Thailand, then France.

Time to order some more pizza for the troops from pizzaidf.org. And it would be during a FReepathon, too.

Still, I can give JimRob money anytime; some of those IDF guys & gals may not be around to enjoy a treat later.

The UN's public answer: "Because the Palestinians were only trying to express their frustrations at the oppressive Israeli naval embargo and the poor economic conditions in the Gaza Strip."

The UN's private answer: "Because the targets were only Jews then."

This was suggested years ago. The Palestinians refuse to repatriate to kindred nations and cing to the myth that there once was a nation called Palestine, which never existed on any map.

I guess I should have attached a sarcasm tag since Egypt has closed her borders to the Palestinians.

There is no reason that the Palestinians should be so destitute given the amount of foreign aid they receive, from both the West and ME. No reason, I guess, except poor leadership and hatred.

I fear there will never be any true peace.

Thank you for your reply. :)

We can only hope that Israel ignores the looney left media and cleans out Gaza. No one will credit Israel for pulling out early so they might as well get the job done right.

The US pulled up short twice in the Gulf. Mission Accomplished my ass!

Overwhelming force please!

A very telling protest sign by those protesting Israel protecting themselves by fighting Hamas.

Interesting, it seems to convey that Hamas (Gaza) has blood on its hands.
