Concerned finger-wagging from the UN over Israel shooting at invaders, condolences to the "victims" and their families

The UN, for years has been nothing more than a toothless and castrated house cat, whining every so often about some abuse somewhere in the world, usually reserving it's really loud meow to use against Israel whenever they must defend themselves.  This article on the latest invasion attempt of Israel by pro-Islamists and useful idiots is, once again a vehicle to hold Israel accountable on the same moral level as the invaders, to make Israel the bad guy(again) and keep alive the false premise that both sides equally share the blame. 

The attempt to bring solace to the families of the invaders who were killed or wounded, at the expense of Israel's right to defend itself, makes the UN more deeply complacent in the demonization of Israel.  Ban Ki Moon should be ashamed.

UN head airs 'deep concern' over Naksa Day clashes


UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon on Monday expressed "deep concern" over Naksa Day clashes that took place between IDF soldiers and pro-Palestinian protesters attempting to infiltrate Israel's borders on Sunday, AFP reported. He called on all parties involved in the Israeli-Arab conflict to exercise "maximum restraint."
Restraint is not mowing down the invaders with a 20MM gatling gun, which Israel has every right to do, under the rules of warfare. 

"The secretary-general regrets the loss of life, and extends his condolences to the families of the victims," said a statement by Ban's spokesman. Syria claimed 23 activists were killed, and 350 were wounded, in the clashes to commemorate the Palestinian “Naksa,” or “setback” of the 1967 Six-Day War on Sunday, although the numbers could not be verified. The IDF rejected the reports of 23 deaths as "exaggerated," Army Radio reported on Monday.
Ban condemned "the use of violence and all actions intended to provoke violence," in the statement. "The events of today and of 15 May on the Golan put the long-held cease-fire in jeopardy," the statement warned, referencing last month's Nakba Day protests, which reportedly left 14 infiltrators on the Lebanese and Syrian borders dead. "The secretary-general calls for maximum restraint on all sides and strict observance of international humanitarian law to ensure protection of civilians."

Earlier on Monday,  Israel Radio reported that Foreign Minister
Avigdor Lieberman plans to file a complaint with the United Nations against Syria for its use of Palestinian demonstrators to challenge Israel's sovereignty.

A government official stated that it was clear the Syrian government gave the green light for the protesters to move toward the border.
