Lebanon shows it's true colors; preventing condemnation vote at the UN against the attack against Israel which left 8 dead

Hizballah controls Lebanon, and Hizballa is a jihadist organization.  They want nothing more than Israel gone and Jews scattered to the four winds, so their block of a vote which would condemn those jihadists who attack Israel is right in line with the doctrine of Islam that tells Muslims to support other Muslims only and do not make friends with non-Muslims.

Israel may be a "people of the book" in the Qur;an but they are "persona non grata" within Islamic tenets and ideology.

Lebanon prevents UN condemnation of terror attack 

WASHINGTON – Murder of Israelis permitted? Lebanon, which is currently a member of the United Nations Security Council, prevented early Saturday a condemnation of the recent terror offensive in southern Israel.

Israel’s UN Ambassador Ron Prosor expressed his disappointment with Beirut’s move, noting that Lebanon is itself “a state controlled by a terrorist organization.” The UN envoy said that the latest fiasco proved that the UN has become “blind and deaf” when it comes to condemning terror attacks against Israeli citizens.

“The Security Council’s silence is deafening,” Prosor said.

Lebanon demands 'balance'

A draft proposal for a presidential statement was distributed to the Security Council’s 15 members Thursday. The United States, Europe and India vigorously supported a harsh UN denunciation of the murderous attack in Israel, yet the Arab representative in the Council, Lebanon, announced Friday that it will endorse such censure only if it is “balanced” with a condemnation of Israel’s retaliatory strikes in the Gaza Strip.

Europe, the US and Israel rejected the Lebanese equation, in essence burying the condemnation and demonstrating yet again that the UN is unable to address some of the most vital issues on its agenda.

Referring to the UN failure to condemn the terror offensive, Ambassador Prosor said that “we are dealing with a blatantly clear terror attack against innocent Israeli civilians.”

“The UN secretary general condemned it, the Americans condemned it, the European Union condemned it, yet the bottom line is that the Security Council again failed as a body,” he said. “Every time an issue pertains to Israel, we see deafening silence. They become blind and deaf.”
