United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon claimed that he was “shocked” after learning that Hamas celebrated the jihadist attack killing four Israeli civilians and injuring more than a dozen — even though the militant Islamic group has been internationally recognized as a terrorist organization for some time.
American Center for Law and Justice Chief Counsel Jay Sekulow says the U.N.’s posturing on the attack comes of little surprise.
“The international community, once again, revealed its hypocrisy in the aftermath of the latest terrorist attacks in Tel Aviv’s Sarona Market,” Sekulow insisted. “How did U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon respond to this? Certainly, since he often condemns Israel for ‘excessive force’ on the world’s stage for defending itself against terrorist attacks, you would think he would condemn Hamas since its very charter calls for the absolute destruction of Israel and Jewish people around the world, right? Wrong.”
Ban Ki-moon’s following statement left the pro-Israel legal expert greatly disturbed.
