Prosor decries continued rocket fire from Gaza
NEW YORK --- For the fourth time in the past month, Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Ron Prosor wrote a letter to UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon and the UN Security Council condemning the continuing rocket fire emanating from the Gaza Strip.

Nearly every day, we witness new scenes of destruction. Israeli men, women and children continue to be killed and injured. Shrapnel flies into homes, schools and playgrounds, Prosor wrote. "Fires rage in the streets. Yet, the Security Council still has not uttered a single syllable of condemnation against these attacks.

The Security Councils silence in the face of the constant terrorism emanating from Gaza speaks volumes, Prosor added, saying that while Israelis hope for peace, they see no doves of peace flying out of Gaza, just Grad rockets and long-range missiles.

All responsible members of the international community have a duty to speak with a common voice and act with a common purpose against the continuous terrorism emanating from the Gaza Strip, Prosor wrote. No people should be expected to live under such a specter of violence.

Now, let's see if the UN continues with its ongoing hypocrisy and double-standards towards Israel or will actually acknowledge Israel's concerns.

1. You don't want rockets? Quit stealing land.
It's pretty simple.

3. What land has been stolen? Where are those rockets fired from?
They're fired from Gaza which is occupied solely by Palestinians and ruled by their terrorist thug overlords, Hamas. There is not one Israeli there, not soldier, not settler, nor hostage.

So please explain what's their excuse? Or is Sderot occupied territory to you?

4. Stealing land? In Gaza?
A lot of things one can complain about with respect to Israel vis-a-vis Gaza, but I don't think "stealing land" is one of them.

6. Israel expects the UNSCR to condemn Hamas rocket fire? Lebanon (Hezbollah) heads the UNSCR...
Rockets will continue without the UNSCR saying one word about it. When Israel retaliates, that's another story. So Hamas can continue and Israel should learn not to respond and allow their citizens to live in constant fear, be maimed, injured, or killed. If Israel responds, it's Goldstone time again...

Or am I wrong?

8. How did that work out for them?
The UN is morally bankrupt, rejecting any appeals from Israel, but bending over backwards to condemn Israel if an arab gets a paper cut when Israel defends itself from terrorism.
