Netanyahu accuses Ban Ki-moon of 'encouraging terror' - Ari Soffer

Israeli Prime Minister fires back after UN Secretary General justifies Palestinian terrorism as a result of 'frustration.'

Israeli Prime Minister Binyamin Netanyahu has strongly condemned remarks made by UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, in which the UN chief expressed sympathy for Palestinian terrorist attacks.

At a special United Nations Security Council session, Ban condemned the presence of Jews in Judea and Samaria, while justifying murderous attacks against Israelis as a result of "Palestinian frustration."

"The UN Secretary-General's words give encouragement to terror," Netanyahu fired in response. 

"There is no justification for terror. The Palestinian murderers don't want to build a state - they want to destroy a state (Israel), and they say it out loud," he continued. "They want to murder Jews wherever they are, and they say it out loud. They don't murder for the sake of peace and they don't murder for the sake of human rights.

"The UN long ago lost its neutrality and its moral authority, and these words of the Secretary General don't make the situation any better."

Ban's speech came shortly after Israel's UN Ambassador rebuked the Security Council for failing to condemn a single Palestinian terror attack against Israelis since the ongoing wave of terrorism began several months ago.

Ban KiMoon and the EU, identify Arab frustration as the cause of knife attacks. The Arab leaders tell their public that All of Israel is 'occupied land' that must be regained. The frustration is the accumulation of Arab failures in 1948, 1956, 1967, 1973, etc and the refusal of Arab leaders to accept peaceful coexistence. Israel's building in Area C is NOT the root cause of the frustration. Its the result of Arab internal propaganda and their leaderships' failure!!
