United Nations reminded “Terror is Terror”

Israeli Ambassador Ron Prosor to the United Nations wrote to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon, explaining that he expects him to condemn the latest Palestinian Authority terrorist attack, which killed Malachi Moshe Rosenfeld and wounded three others Monday night.

ASW39Prosor noted that since the beginning of the Muslim month of Ramadan, “There has been a dramatic increase in attacks against Israelis – part of a global surge of terrorism.”

“I write to you for the second time in less than two weeks to ​inform you that yet another citizen of Israel has been brutally murdered by Palestinian terrorists…..

Each day seems to bring with it news of a shooting attack, or a stabbing. Just yesterday, a terrorist stabbed a 19-year old female soldier next to Rachel’s Tomb, causing severe injuries. These attacks are a direct result of incitement by the Palestinian Authority in the media and in its education system. Even after this latest incident, the leadership of the PA remains silent, failing to condemn the murder of innocent people.”

Prosor noted that the United Nations condemned “in the strongest terms” last week’s terror stacks in France, Tunisia and Kuwait.”

The Ambassador reminded the Secretary General, “We join in your call that ‘those responsible for these appalling acts of violence must be swiftly brought to justice’ and that ‘these heinous attacks will only strengthen the commitment of the United Nations to help defeat those bent on murder, destruction and the annihilation of human development and culture.

I expect you to condemn the terrorist attacks in Israel in an equally decisive manner.

Terror is terror, no matter where it takes place, or who is harmed. The people of Israel deserve the same level of concern and empathy as any other people in the world.
