UN, US More Worried about Jerusalem Police than N. Korea Missile
UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon expressed concern about the latest escalation at the holy sites in the Old City of Jerusalem – but had nothing to say about North Korea’s latest illegal nuclear advancement.
United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon expressed concern Tuesday about the latest escalation at the holy sites in the Old City of Jerusalem – but had nothing to say about North Korea’s latest illegal nuclear advancement.
Ban echoed the sentiments expressed by the UN Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, and also mentioned in passing “a stone throwing incident [on Sunday night – ed.] which resulted in the death of an Israeli man in East Jerusalem.” He did not mention, even in passing, that the stones were thrown at the Israeli by Palestinian Arabs with the purpose of murdering him, nor that the incident happened in a modern Israeli neighborhood populated by tens of thousands of Jews.
The United States, too, took an “objective” approach to the anti-Jewish violence that took place in Jerusalem over the two-day Rosh HaShanah holiday. State Department spokesman John Kirby told reporters on Monday that “we want all sides to refrain from violence and return to peaceful conditions… We’ve been very clear about the violence on both sides and how it needs to stop. There’s been no double standard with respect to our desire for a peaceful resolution here of these issues and no change in the status quo.”
