Israelís United Nations Ambassador Plays Air Raid Siren at Security Council Meeting (VIDEO)

Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations Ron Prosor played an air raid siren from a cell phone during a Security Council session on Thursday in order to highlight Israel’s plight as a nation under fire from Gaza rockets.

“As I speak, there is a storm of rockets being fired by the Hamas terrorist organization in Gaza,” Prosor said. “Hamas is intentionally and indiscriminately threatening the lives of three and a half million innocent men, women, and children in Israel from north to south – from Beersheba to Tel Aviv to Haifa.”

The Ambassador added, “In the last three days, 442 rockets have been fired into Israel – that’s one every 10 minutes.”

“Fifteen seconds. That’s how much time you have to run for your life,” he said after sounding the alarm. “Imagine having only 15 seconds to find a bomb shelter. Now imagine doing it with small children or elderly parents or an ailing friend.”

The UN is more concerned over the targeting of Hamas who hides behind Gazian civilians.

He ought to have accused Hamas and its leadership of crimes against humanity, and demanded that the UN prosecute these animals. It wouldn’t get anywhere, of course, but at least it would be on record that this is what the Paleostinians are doing.

This 12:20 presentation by Proser was excellent.

In it he frames the issue of current attacks, Hamas’ role in the Palestinian government, the nature of the Palestinian society with regard to terrorism vs peace, and then takes the international community to task for not stepping forward to denounce all this.

Masterful presentation IMO.

My church had a mission team going there. They got to NJ or NY and plans were postponed until next July. It was just too dangerous. Teams from here go to Israel every year.

Thanks Dave346.
