UN blames Israel for Gaza carnage, ignores Hamas terror

Tuesday, May 05, 2009 |  Israel Today Staff

A United Nations board of inquiry last week submitted to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon its final report on the recent Gaza War, in which is singled out Israel for harsh criticism, while almost completely ignoring the Hamas terrorism that sparked the conflict.

Israeli media got ahold of the document this week, and reported that the board had found Israel guilty of intentionally firing on UN facilities in Gaza and at the unarmed civilians hiding in them.

No mention was made of the fact that Hamas forces were firing at Israeli forces either from within or right next to those facilities.

Israel noted that the document did refrain from explicitly accusing Israeli forces of war crimes, but Jerusalem still views the report as hostile and one-sided.

The secretary general was scheduled to present his own summarized version of the report to the Security Council on Tuesday.
