UN accused of 'knee-jerk' reaction to Israel over video of Palestinian deaths

Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs defends Israel's investigative processes The head of a Canadian Jewish advocacy group is slamming the United Nations over its "knee-jerk" reaction to a video that human rights groups claim shows two unarmed Palestinian teenagers being shot by Israeli soldiers.

"Frankly, Israel really doesn't need to take instructions from the UN about the proper followup to incidents involving fatalities," Shimon Fogel, head of the Centre for Israel and Jewish Affairs, told CBC News. "There's a long established process by which every such incident is thoroughly investigated by an arm's length body within the national policing structure."

Fogel was commenting on a statement made by Oscar Fernandez-Taranco, the assistant UN secretary general for political affairs. At a briefing of the UN Security Council, Fernandez-Taranco said that initial information "appears to indicate that the two Palestinians killed were both unarmed and appeared to pose no direct threat."

"The UN calls for an independent and transparent investigation by the Israeli authorities into the two deaths, and urges Israel to ensure that its security forces strictly adhere to the basic principles on the use of force and firearms by law enforcement officials," Fernandez-Taranco said.

Hahahahahahaha. The UN. Isn’t that kind of like watching people masturbate for entertainment?

Israel will see redemption, their neighbors will see judgment.

Apparently all that’s known is that the shots came from far away.

If they were actually shot, the most likely guilty party would be some muzzy trying to stir trouble. Islamowhacks have no problem killing their own to make a scene.

So, one guy gets shot, they drag him out of there, then the rest just kind of mill around for a while and then another guy gets shot.

Now, if it was me, one guy gets shot and I’m not standing around that area waiting for another round to come in. Therefore I am calling BS on this one.

I’d agree but then again these people aren’t the brightest.

That’s what I was thinking. Someone is taking pot shots and the others just stand around waiting to be the next target? I don’t think so.
