In a follow-up note to Ban after their meeting, the SWC rabbis summed up the argument they presented. They said that “we must frankly ask you how many times will the world allow itself to be held hostage by Hamas? This is the third time since 2005 when Israel unilaterally withdrew from Gaza that Hamas has brought death and destruction to the people of Gaza. Once again they are using the people of Gaza, the civilian infrastructure and UN facilities in its non-stop campaign to terrorize the Jewish state.”

During the 90 minute meeting, according to Rabbi Cooper, the SWC urged the UN to announce an official inquiry into the use of various UNRWA schools by Hamas to store and launch rockets for the benefit of the UN’s own reputation. They also called on the UN not to permit the UNRWA to supervise the billions in reconstruction funds expected for Gaza.

“The systematic hijacking of previous aid, cement, and building materials by Hamas to build an underground superhighway of terror is scandalous and a violation of the wishes of the donors who did not contribute funds for rockets or tunnels,” they said. “Those who failed to stop such theft and serial abuse of humanitarian aid, must be held accountable and should not have any involvement in supervising or dispersing of future funds.”

They also said that work shouldn’t begin until “the total disarming of Hamas and the destruction of all of the thousands of rockets and missiles Hamas still harbors.”

The Jewish human rights group that works to protect Jews against anti-Semitism also raised that core issue with Ban. “There has been an explosion of anti-Semitism and genocidal hatred against Israel from Europe to Australia,” they said. “Rather than denouncing this toxic situation Navi Pillay, the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights, contributed to it by being so rabidly one-sided in her criticisms of Israel.”

“During her tenure there was no effort to investigate previous crimes against humanity by Hamas, including its own admission that 160 Palestinian children died building their terrorism tunnels. Her behavior demands a public censure from the Secretary General.”

They asked that “with a human rights disaster of epic proportions in Syria, with ethnic cleansing in Iraq, with a difficult situation in Ukraine and with continuing human rights outrages in North Korea,” the upcoming UN General Assembly “not be allowed to degenerate into an anti-Israel hate fest,” and noted that the UNGA will coincide with the Jewish High Holy Days.

“Anymore demonization of Israel emanating from the halls of the United Nations will only contribute to anti-Semitism globally,” they said.

To hammer home their point about Hamas violating human rights, although Israel is accused of doing so by the UN Human Rights Commission, the SWC rabbis left Ban with a detailed list they compiled of the 19 violations made by Hamas, with full notes and citations for Ban to reflect upon.

In further comments to The Algemeiner, Rabbi Cooper said Ban “refused to get involved with the travesty at UN Human Rights Council.”

Alexa, the UN will have to take their earplugs out to hear the truth and then care enough to listen. I sincerely doubt that the UN will listen to anything Israel or any Jew says because they are too busy condemning Israel for existing!

Come riescono a negare una verità così lampante? Sono sconcertata! Grazie David per l'articolo che anche se non raggiungibile, ho usufruito della lettura di Ge M.

there is such a deep well of decency in the way the swc men speak, in a manner so foreign to hamas and its terrorist cronies that they might as well be from a different planet.

as for the UN - the level of corruption and self-interest prevailing there becomes more evident each day. i wonder if ban ki moon feels ashamed to head such a decayed body?

The UN is a toothless useless talking shop that blows nothing but hot air.They are incapable of seeing the truth even if it bit them in the ass.Ban Ki Moon I think is a rabid anti Semitic.I fear that Israel will not get a fair deal from this superfluous organization because of it's not in it's interest to do so.

The UN is a terrible sham. I think it has become so feeble and distracted by various lobby groups that it should be demolished and reformed. Like a once stately manor run to rack and ruin, the UN needs to be drastically renovated and updated.

Thanks David. The UN is completely corrupt and it's still unbelievable to me that they are the ones to judge us.
