UNIFIL is helping to lay the groundwork for the next wave of ethnic cleansing and genocide to be perpetrated against Israel. From Gillerman: UNIFIL Failures Set Stage for New Conflict: UNIFIL soldiers assigned to maintain the cease-fire that ended the Second Lebanon War of 2006 are not carrying out their mandate and are potentially laying the groundwork for another round of violence between Israel and Hizbullah, Israel’s outgoing UN ambassador Danny Gillerman said in an interview. “They [UNIFIL] should be much more proactive – more aggressive in going after Hizbullah – in detecting [and] identifying arms depots.

By equating the death of innocent Israeli Amnon Rosenberg from a barbaric Hamas attack with the death of a palestinian girl from an Israeli defensive measure, UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon sanctions palestinian violence. To equate aggression with defense is immoral. From Gillerman to UN: Israel Will Defend Itself: Israel’s ambassador to the UN, Dan Gillerman, launched a formal complaint to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the UN Security Council over the Palestinian mortar shell barrage that killed Amnon Rosenberg. “Excellency, the killing of an Israeli civilian this morning and the attack on Nahal Oz yesterday underscore the malicious and murderous

From Israel: UN Human Rights Council Is “Morally Bankrupt”: Israeli UN Ambassador Dan Gillerman told the UN’s Third Committee (Social, Humanitarian, and Cultural) Tuesday that the moral bankruptcy and numerous shortcomings of the dysfunctional Commission on Human Rights continued in the new Human Rights Council. He said real burning situations were not reflected in Council deliberations, which focused primarily on Israel, subjecting it to three special sessions and 12 discriminatory resolutions. He accused the new organ of being blind to the human rights of Israelis and asked where its condemnation was of Palestinian terrorism against Israel. Moreover, he questioned what

UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon Wednesday told Dan Gillerman, Israel’s ambassador to the UN, that he would do everything in his power to ensure the abducted Israeli soldiers are released. Gillerman reiterated Israel’s demand for a sign of life from the soldiers. Gillerman told Ban, ‘The UN needs to deal more with the Iranian threat.’ Ban replied that denying the Holocaust, and the declarations by Iranian President Ahmadinejad about Israel’s destruction, are unacceptable. Ban also pledged to act against arms smuggling from Syria and Lebanon, saying he would ‘spare no effort to implement Resolution 1701.’

From Asking the Scapegoat to Take One for the Team: Born of the ashes of Hitler’s World War II, the UN has now returned to scapegoating the Jewish state. On Friday at the UN General Assembly, Israeli ambassador to the UN Dan Gillerman was talking about his country’s attempts to deal with the ongoing rocket attacks from Gaza, which resulted in a horrific error that killed 19 innocent Palestinian Arabs in Beit Hanoun. “If France was shelled from across the border, what would the French do?” Gillerman asked. “Would the French government send flowers to their attackers?” As Gillerman was

From Israel’s Ambassador Rebukes France: In an interview on Saturday, Israeli envoy to the UN Dan Gillerman was highly critical of France, which was particularly active in supporting a UN resolution condemning the errant shelling in Beit Hanoun in Gaza. The UN General Assembly on Friday passed a resolution condemning Israel with 156 countries in favor, seven opposed, and six abstentions. “The French demonstrated excessive eagerness to understand terror while exhibiting utter insensitivity to the pain of (Israeli) terror victims,” Gillerman said. Voting “no” were the U.S., Israel, Australia, the Marshall Islands, Micronesia, Nauru and Palau. Abstaining were Canada, Ivory

Israel urged all UN member states to denounce and reject Iranian President Ahmadinejad’s renewed call for the destruction of the State of Israel. In a letter to UN Secretary-General Kofi Annan, Israel’s UN Ambassador Dan Gillerman Monday called Ahmadinejad’s latest comments a violation of the UN Charter and an incitement to genocide and racism. Gillerman said it was inconceivable that in the 21st century, 61 years after the Holocaust, a UN member state would openly call for the annihilation of another state. By allowing Ahmadinejad to speak at the UN General Assembly last month, Gillerman said “the international community has
