UN silence over attack on Israel is deafening

Published 09/08/2010

In spite of the meeting of the UN Security Council following a totally unprovoked cross-border attack by Lebanese forces upon the Israelis, the only comment emanating from the international body has been one calling for calm on both sides.

As the UN continually and obsessively meets to condemn Israel for the slightest suggestion of wrongdoing, delivering resolution after resolution, inquiry after inquiry, no such UN resolution or inquiry is deemed appropriate for the Lebanese violence which could have sparked another regional or international conflict.

The thunderous silence of the UN in the face of Arab aggression towards Israel is sickening. The moral compass of the UN appears to have been lost in the mire of its anti-Israeli bias.
