UN's Ban in solidarity with Israeli occupation

"Ban’s timidity has been no surprise: his complicity with Israel is legend. Last June, he caved in to pressure from Israel and the United States and took the Israeli military off a UN list of serious violators of children’s rights. And at the height of Israel’s summer 2014 attack on Gaza, 129 organizations and distinguished individuals wrote to the secretary-general, condemning him for “your biased statements, your failure to act, and the inappropriate justification of Israel’s violations of international humanitarian law, which amount to war crimes.” Ban’s record, they said, made him a “partner” in Israel’s crimes."
