Israel's Ambassador to the UN Ron Prosor wrote to UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and the president of the Security Council Thursday over their failure to condemn Gaza's rocket fire on Israel, although the UN was quick to condemn similar fire by Syria on Turkey.
"Over the past three days, terrorists fired 37 more rockets into Israeli communities," Prosor wrote. "While the people of southern Israel remain semi-permanent residents of bomb shelters, the permanent and semi-permanent members of the Security Council remain unable to speak with one voice against these attacks."
"The Council has slept through more than 12,000 rocket attacks against Israelis over the past decade. We applaud the Security Council's condemnation last week - and expect the Council to act with the same speed and conviction to condemn the rocket fire targeting one million Israeli civilians....Gaza terror begins and ends with Hamas, which took full responsibility for these attacks."
