Last week, the Security Council showcased unprecedented efficiency when rockets were fired in the direction of another country in the Middle East — and rightly so. This is the Council’s responsibility.
Meanwhile the Security Council has slept through more then 12,000 rocket attacks against Israelis over the past decade. We applaud the Council’s condemnation last week — and expect the Council to act with the same speed and conviction to condemn the rocket fire targeting 1 million Israeli civilians.
I ask you — as the President of the Security Council — to condemn these rocket attacks in the same manner as last week’s statement, without another day of delay.
Gaza terror begins and ends with Hamas, which took full responsibility for these attacks. What further evidence does the world need to hold Hamas responsible?
Israel has exercised — and will continue to exercise — its right to self-defence, as appropriate, and will take all necessary measures to protect its citizens.
I should be grateful if you would have the present letter distributed as a document of the Security Council.
