Israeli Ambassador Calls on UN to Hold PA, Iran Accountable

(Israel Hayom) Ariel Kahana - At the UN Security Council on Tuesday, Israeli Ambassador Gilad Erdan asked Palestinian envoy Riyad Mansour: "Are you not ashamed to come before the Security Council when your government is paying hundreds of millions of dollars to terrorists? How can you speak about [Israeli] aggression when your leaders and your schools glorify the murder of Jews and incite terrorism?" He asked Mansour how he could speak about human rights "while your police forces are beating to death real civil society activists." Erdan continued, "Unfortunately, rather than pushing peace forward, the Security Council's debates on the situation in the Middle East only seem to perpetuate the conflict....These biased debates give the Palestinians the illusion that they will never be held accountable for their crimes and that all of their radical demands could be granted by the international community. The unbalanced discussions only serve to strengthen Palestinian rejectionism." Turning his attention to Iran's menacing conduct, Erdan said, "Iran continues to spread death, destruction and instability as it seeks to advance Shiite hegemony and export terror around the world. While some members of the Security Council remain stuck in the mud of their anti-Israel obsession, the real threat to global security is quickly advancing. using the diplomatic talks to buy time, so that it can enrich uranium to near weapons-grade levels while gaining nuclear know-how that can never be reversed."
