Bibi Blasts UN's Ban: Your Remarks Are a Tailwind for Terror

Speaking to the United Nations Security Council earlier today, U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon attributed the current wave of Palestinian terror facing Israel and her people to "human nature." In response, reports The Jerusalem Post's Danielle Ziri, PM Netanyahu said that such remarks only spur terror:

Earlier in the day, Ban condemned the current wave of Palestinian terror against Israel, but added that "it is human nature to react to occupation, which often serves as a potent incubator of hate and extremism."

"The secretary-general's remarks provide a tailwind for terror. There is no justification for terror. Those Palestinians who murder do not want to build a state, they want to destroy a state and they say this openly," Netanyahu said.

"They want to murder Jews for being Jews and they say this openly. They do not murder for peace and they do not murder for human rights," he added.

Netanyahu then attacked the United Nations in general.

"The United Nations long ago lost its neutrality and its moral force, and the secretary general's remarks do not improve its standing," Netanyahu said.
