Ban Ki-moon, step down
Secretary General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon justifies terrorism and incitement:
“It is human nature to react to occupation.”
Actually, stabbing a pregnant woman or a mother of six is not human nature. Instead of making excuses for murders, Ban Ki-moon should take the first step towards eradicating terrorism and follow International Law.
UN Security Council Resolution 1377 states:
“Reaffirms its unequivocal condemnation of all acts, methods and practices of terrorism as criminal and unjustifiable, regardless of their motivation, in all their forms and manifestations, wherever and by whomever committed.”
Thomas L. Friedman, New York Times, wrote in his April 1, 2002 column:
“The world must understand that the Palestinians have not chosen suicide bombing out of ‘desperation’ stemming from the Israeli occupation... To begin with, a lot of other people in the world are desperate, yet they have not gone around strapping dynamite to themselves. Let’s be very clear: Palestinians have adopted suicide bombing as a strategic choice, not out of desperation. This threatens all civilization because if suicide bombing is allowed to work in Israel, then, like hijacking and airplane bombing, it will be copied and will eventually lead to a bomber strapped with a nuclear device threatening entire nations. That is why the whole world must see this Palestinian suicide strategy defeated.”
