Skip to comments.UN Blasts Israel for Not Sharing Iron Dome with Hamas
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 Israels 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 Israels 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.

Navi Pillay , Nancy Pelosi CLONE
Hamas is using human shields instead.
So, you have to share missile defense systems with your enemy???
What the heck???
Is this satire??
Well what are they SUPPOSED to do? The Israelis don’t give them any other choice!
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
International Moron of the Week Award...
Is this satire??
Nope , it’s Navi Pillay , the Nancy Pelosi CLONE
Is she Sheila Jackson Lee’s missing twin?
Oh, no. Giving Obama an idea.
people in NYC need to figure out where this person lives and convince her that it’s time to not be present in the USA any longer
So basically they want Gaza to defend themselves against Israeli self defense.
The lights on but nobody's home.
So I guess it wasn’t fair that we didn’t share the atomic bomb with Japan, either. Of course, we did. Sort of.
Oh, no. Giving Obama an idea.
Obama already tried , Hamas could not figure out how to put it in a Bread Cart
The original Star Trek had an episode like this. So this is equal liberal fantasy.
Israel should share it, let Gaza have it completely and totally.
The UN is a terrorist organization.
I thought they wanted to protect the people living in Gaza from the Hamas rocket attacks. A great number of the Hamas rockets are landing in Gaza after all. :0)
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 .
there needs to be tangible push back , in & around NYC
Enough of them feeling safe & sound to spread their vile evil perfidy here . It should be OVER
One would think that with all of the money the UN has, they could afford full priced crack. Sad that they have to use bargain basement grade.
I saw what you did there. Heh-heh!
Ridicule is the most potent antidote to liberal stupidity.
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.
WTF? They get to see if knock down over 90% of the SH*t they throw at it? How’s that “not sharing?”
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 UN is dangerous. Bring back the John Birch Society.
I wouldn’t object if Israel blue the UN off the map.
The toll of Gaza death at the hands of Israel troops is about 1% of the deaths Hamas has attempted to inflict on Israel.
Satire? This has got to be satire.
These UN people are insane and evil.
Another United Nazis organization big mouth, eh? Aren’t there enough highly- paid patronage posts in the current USA regime for all the escapees from the lunatic asylum?
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.
They’ve been sharing the effectiveness just fine...
This asshat (sometimes you gotta call it as it is) needs to fired immediately, but since he is anti Israel he’ll probably get a raise.
Huh? Really? Why are we still playing with the U.N.?
it’s a female Indian
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.
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.
Where’s the part where it says this is satire? I want it to be satire so bad, but knowing the UN I’m sure this is true. :-(
Is this one of yours?
I still cannot figure out why any sane person would say something like that
Be interesting to see if she walks it back, and how.
And we support this BS? Amazing.
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 .
This is like criticizing Harry Truman for not sharing the A-Bomb with Japan.
