UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon appealed Sunday for restraint to avoid an escalation in the Syrian conflict, expressing "grave concern" over Israeli air strikes, AFP reported.

Nesirky said the United Nations was unable to independently verify the Israeli strikes, and had no details about them, but Ban "expresses grave concern over reports of air strikes in Syria by the Israeli Air Force."

I will also express grave concern for the thousands killed by sarin gas in a major Israeli city. This is a great job. I can express grave concern about things, and say *tsk* *tsk* and they pay me! Not to mention the kovod. Boy, do I get kovod.

Ban Ki Moon is a fan of turning the other cheek. I’m not.

Go Israel

“The secretary-general urges respect for national sovereignty and territorial integrity of all countries in the region...”

Except, of course, Israel.

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Nehaytu asked U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-moon for his exact GPS coordinates, so that he could send him his sincere apologies in personally.

Is it a job requirement for Secy Genl of the UN to be a despicable little fart eater? Or does it just help?

Sure, Moon guy wants Israel to shut up until they are all dead, then they won’t make any more noise.

Has he publicly expressed a “grave concern” about the recent unwelcome military intrusion by the Chinese into India?

If not, wouldn’t it be fair to confront him with the issue of whether he has an agenda or even a bias regarding Israel?

The U.N. itself has no “respect for national sovereignty.”

China and India? Wait. That didn’t happen on TV. So it didn’t happen, and I don’t have to express any grave concern over it.

I’m “gravely concerned” that this corrupt moron is flapping his lips. He can shut up. It’s Israel’s business.

Was Bab Ki Moon “gravely concerned” by all the rockets and mortar missiles launched at Israel?

According to Wiki — “As of November 2012, over 2,256 rockets had been launched at Israel from Gaza since January 2012.”

“Ban Ki-moon appealed Sunday for restraint to avoid an escalation in the Syrian conflict, expressing “grave concern” “

My my isn't that precious. I'll bet the A-holes on the receiving end expressed a different sort of “grave concern” mainly about their own graves.

Exactly and the UN can’t stand that they won’t bow down and appease the terrorists who are helping them facilitate their goal of forming a one world government.

When was the last time that we had a Secretary General from a Western nation?

Which nations contribute the most to the UN?

Anyone sees an incongruity here?

He never voices "grave concern" or call for restraint when any country other than Israel does something.
... calls on all sides to ... Hah! We know exactly which side he's calling on.

I never seem to hear about Ban Ki-Moon or anyone at the UN being "Gravely Concerned" about rocket strikes going into Israel.
