UN - PA Demands Israel’s Ousting

Arno Froese

Israel should be ousted from international organizations, Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki told the United Nations Human Rights Council as he accused the Jewish state of acts of “genocide” against his people.

Maliki accused Israel of “genocide” against Palestinians due to its war in Gaza, charging that it enjoyed immunity for its “crimes against humanity” because the United States had continued to use its veto power to protect Israel from United Nations Security Council sanctions.

The war in Gaza must be ended immediately, he stated. There must be unimpeded humanitarian aid to that enclave and there can be no forced displacement of Palestinians, he stressed.

The Foreign Minister broadened his charges to include Israeli actions against Palestinians in the West Bank and east Jerusalem as he called on Israel to withdraw to the pre-1967 lines and its “occupation” of its territory.

Arno's Commentary

Yes, “War in Gaza must end immediately,” but that can only take place if and when the Hamas terrorist organization surrenders.

If it wasn’t so serious, one would consider the accusation of the foreign minister childish, if not outright stupid. Israel has the capability to totally obliterate Gaza with all its population, but hasn’t.

The Times of Israel reported on 16 February 2024, that 13,840 trucks with humanitarian aid arrived in Gaza. According to COGAT, 254,210 tons have been transferred to Gaza, including 160,080 tons of food. 

Under normal circumstances, if there were any common sense, Palestinian Authority Foreign Minister Riyad al-Maliki would be banned for life from any international organization, not Israel.

That Palestinian people have suffered is not in question, but that does not eliminate Israel’s right to defend its citizens from terrorism. Here the words of Isaiah 5:20 apply: “Woe unto them that call evil good, and good evil; that put darkness for light, and light for darkness; that put bitter for sweet, and sweet for bitter!”
