Lebanon Complains Israel Defended Itself at UN
Lebanon filed a complaint Monday against Israel at the United Nations for firing missiles into southern Lebanon on November 29.

On November 29 the Abullah Azzam Shaheed Brigades fired four Katyusha rockets at communities in northern Israel, destroying a chicken coop and causing a fire when gas tanks were hit. IDF forces immediately responded by firing six artillery shells at the Katyusha launcher, which was located in a remote area.

Nonetheless, Lebanon's Foreign Ministry instructed its UN envoy, Nawaf Salam, to file a complaint against Israel claiming the Jewish State had violated UN Security Council Resolution 1701 and various "international laws and pacts" by defending itself.

However, legal experts note Israel insisted UNSCR 1701 includes the language "the right to self-defense must be preserved" allowing for responses to immediate security threats such as the IDF response last week.

How rude of the Israelis, it would be so much more convenient if they would just step in front of the Qassam rockets

1. I thought Chutzpah was a Yiddish word
It turns out it's Arabic too - and has a much more diverse meaning. You could almost laugh at their gall if it wasn't so outrageous.

2. It is not a laughing matter
Quite frankly the UN is ripe with such stories. If this was the first time that it happened, you can attribute it to chutzpah. However, this is not even the first dozen times that a silly, unfounded complaint was lodged against Israel at the UN. Entire committees at the UN are dedicated, by charter, to complaining about Israel.
