UN Blasts Israel for Not Sharing Iron Dome with Hamas
Arutz Sheva ^ | Aug 1 , 2014 | Elad Benari

Posted on 08/01/2014 1:26:28 PM PDT by LeoWindhorse

In what may be one of the most ridiculous accusations yet against Israel, the UN's top human rights official condemned Israel on Thursday for failing to share the Iron Dome anti-missile system with Hamas, Breitbart reports.

According to the report, human rights commissioner Navi Pillay condemned Israel’s military actions to stop Hamas rocket attacks against Israeli civilians, telling reporters that Israel was “deliberately defying International Law... in a way that may constitute war crimes.”

"There is a strong possibility that international law has been violated, in a manner that could amount to war crimes,” Breitbart quoted Pillay as saying following a meeting of the UN Human Rights Council on Gaza.

She backed this statement by citing Israel’s refusal to share its Iron Dome ballistic missile defense shield with the "governing authority" of Gaza.

Pillay criticized the U.S. for helping Iron Dome, adding, "No such protection has been provided to Gazans against the shelling.”

That reminds me of one of my few disagreements with the late President Reagan. Every time he would mention sharing Star Wars technology with the Soviets my blood would boil. Great President but even Reagan had a few quirks

who decides who is the Chair of the U.N. ‘Human Rights Commission’ ?

They need to be talked to as well .

None of these suckers should be made to feel welcome here in the US if this is the stuff they are going to come up with . I don’t care who they are or how they have gotten to hold these ‘jobs’ . This is our country and they need to get the hell out of here . And never return .

Meanwhile, the toll of potential Israeli citizen deaths from Hamas rockets continues to rise. The toll recently passed the 100,000 mark and now stands at 104,120.

Had the thousands of Hamas rockets struck the densely populated Israeli targets the death toll would have been 104,120. The Iron dome and poor aim prevented the genocidal scale death toll.

I have been led to believe that reagan did not believe Star Wars technology was in fact possible in the short run. His genius was convincing Russia to ramp up its military beyond its ability to maintain its economy. He bankrupted them with cold war tactics. Sort of a Clyde/Piven strategy. This being the case why would it not make sense to overcome MAD with MAP? The result would be the same. Russia would be bankrupt.

The toll of Gaza death at the hands of Israel troops is about 1% of the deaths Hamas has attempted to inflict on Israel.

It is official: The movie “Idiocracy” is a prophetic vision of what mankind has become.

Either that, or we are all in a very sophisticated episode of the Twilight Zone.

Either way, screw this beotch!

This kind of hypocrisy from a public figure is a violation of human rights.

gee where was she when terrorism ravaged here own country ?
maybe she is in league with them too ?

My question is ; who appoints these people and how can we affect that process . As in : appoint the wrong people and your life in America will become very ‘uncomfortable ‘

There has to be a cost and presently there is none . The asshats are running amok , shamelessly , with no fears of any sort of retribution for their perfidy

On Sept 1 Pillay will be replaced by Prince Zeid al-Hussein of Jordan.

In 2012, Quebec was mentioned in a long speech in which Pillay cited human-rights abuses in countries habitually seen as usual suspects, such as North Korea and Zimbabwe.

A. You have got to be $hiting me!

B. "No such protection has been provided to Gazans against the shelling.” I didn't know that Iron Dome protected against Shells I thought it protected against MISSLES

Sorry but that sort of thing bugs me.

not satire and there needs to be a strong response AGAINST the UN over this outrageous conduct , they can’t be allowed to spew just whatever they please .

They need to be made to fear being here , if that’s their stand . No free ride in sweet and cozy USA , rather fear the night and who knocketh .
