1. Palestinian U.N. ambassador cries while speaking on Gaza

Saturday, 19 July 2014

Palestinian U.N. Ambassador Riyad Mansour cried on Friday as he spoke at the Security Council about the Israeli offensive in Gaza.
Mansour demanded that the council “uphold the law to end these crimes and violations against our people and ensure their protection.”
“Should our peaceful, diplomatic and political efforts in this regard fail, we will have no recourse but to turn to the judicial bodies of the United Nations and the international system,” Mansour told the council.
Israel’s Operation Protective Edge is the bloodiest conflict in the besieged coastal enclave since 2009.
Israel launched its ground offensive late Thursday, starting a new phase in the operation which it said was aimed at destroying tunnels used by the territory’s dominant power, Islamist movement Hamas.
New deaths on Saturday took to 318 the toll from an Israeli operation to stamp out rocket fire from Gaza, many of them women and children.
One Israeli civilian and one Israeli soldier have been killed since the campaign started on July 8, and several wounded.

After a United Nations-run school sheltering more than 3,000 Palestinians was shelled early Wednesday, UN official Chris Gunness could not contain his grief while on camera with Al Jazeera Arabic.

“The rights of Palestinians, and even their children, are wholesale denied... and it’s appalling,” Gunness, spokesman for the UN agency for Palestinian refugees (UNRWA), told Al Jazeera Arabic from Jerusalem. The interviewer appears to thank him for appearing, upon which Gunness breaks down and weeps.

Gaza’s Ministry of Health said at least 17 people were killed and 90 wounded by the school shelling. An Israeli military spokesman told the New York Times that Israeli troops did not target UN facilities, but did respond to Palestinian militant fire from nearby the school in Jabaliya refugee camp.
The White House and the United Nations Secretary General separately condemned the attack. In an official statement Wednesday, the UNRWA Commissioner-General Pierre Kranhenbuhl wrote: “Children killed in their sleep; this is an affront to all of us, a source of universal shame. Today the world stands disgraced.”

Dr. David Duke exposes a video of the UN Envoy on Gaza refugees who breaks down in tears after learning of another horrific Israeli mass murder bombing of a UN operated school and civilian shelter. Suddenly the links for the video disappeared from mainstream publications. Looks like the Zionist thought it was too moving and they did not want it seen by people in Western nations!
