Israelís UN Ambassador Says There Are More Hamas Missiles at UNRWA Facilities
Algemeiner ^ | Friday, July 18, 2014 | Staff

A day after UNRWA, the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East, admitted that it had discovered 20 Hamas rockets at one of its schools, Israel’s UN Ambassador said he was certain that more such facilities housed Hamas weaponry.

“Yesterday, UNRWA admitted that it mysteriously found 20 missiles in one of its schools,” Ambassador Ron Prosor said on Friday in an emergency Security Council session on Gaza. “I’m sure that if UNRWA takes the time to check its other facilities, it will discover that this is just the tip of the iceberg. Hamas is using UN facilities to commit a double war crime by targeting Israeli civilians while hiding behind Palestinian civilians.”

His comments came the morning after Israeli forces entered Gaza in an expansion of Israel’s Operation Protective Edge aimed at ending rocket fire against civilians.

In his extensive remarks, outlining Israel’s position on the conflict with Hamas, Prosor also said that it was time for the international community to face the consequences of its failed policies regarding the Gaza based terror group.

The reason why Israel is getting a lot more support now, is that Israel has Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu guiding this process and moving very cautiously while working with Egypt, too, in accepting the cease-fire that Hamas rejected. With Netanyahu's skill and working with other countries, they can see more clearly now that it's all on Hamas' side.

So how much hush money, under the table money, from Iran’s mullahs is being given to this agency and others store missiles and worse?

Reminds us of the so called Christian Charities in America getting millions of our tax money to shelter Obama’s storm of illegal immigants aka new rat voters.

Glad you said 'so called'.

It is my guess these 'charities' are just CIA fronts run by political cronies.

I would have to see some verifiable reporting on that before I would be willing to spread information that Iran is paying the U.N. to house missiles and armaments in UN Gaza facilities..

If you’ve got that, I certainly would like to read it.

The UN has been housing Hamas and weapons for at least five years. It has been reported on before.

I’ve never seen any kind of reports that say - either - that Iran is paying the UN to house and hide weapons and armaments, or, that the UN is doing that for free ... LOL ...

Please do give me a report on the United Nations doing that ... I would find it enlightening.

This particular report of weapons being found in a UN facility appears to be something they don’t want there, which is why it was reported. But, if you’ve got something where they’re actively helping Hamas by doing that, it would definitely be very enlightening!

Don’t know about Iran.

About the UNRWA, google ‘al fakhoora school incident’.

I did a quick look at that, and without going into depth into the account, what I picked up about it is that Islamic terrorists were using the “shelter” of the school (namely being close to it) to fire off their weapons. And if that’s the case, we’ve got lots of examples of Hamas using close proximity to hospitals and schools and other civilian places to shelter them from return fire.

HOWEVER, I saw an IDF video one time, where a terrorist was shooting off rockets from right next to a hospital. He was less than ten feet from the hospital wall and shot off several. But ... boom ... the IDF got him, just in that ten feet from the wall. There was no damage to the building, but he wasn’t there anymore ... LOL ...

Of course, that’s not what I call the UN helping Hamas, though ... :-) ...

If I found myself thinking Netanyahu was a god while at the same time trusting a UN agency, I would get examined for a possible brain tumor.

I think you’re over-extended what I’ve said.

Thinking that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu is the best PM for the country and is doing an excellent job is no more different than one praising President Reagan and wishing that there was someone like him around right now. Neither of them are “gods” but they are and were great leaders!

Also saying that I have never seen or read of any credible news reports about the UN taking money from Iran to hide armaments in Gaza (or even doing it for free) ... is not saying that I have some kind of implicit trust in the UN. It’s saying that I won’t spread baseless accusations without having something substantial to give along with that accusation.

Saw on FNC Friday night a report from Israel that said the Hamas were transporting their leaders around in ambulances filled with children.

That makes those vehicles legitimate targets, children or no.

Those weapons don’t go there for free.

Someone is paying for the weapons, their shipmens across borders and to store them. Then, money is probably used to bribe local and international officials to keep the process under cover.
