Israeli ambassador to UN lashes out at General Assembly

Israel’s ambassador to the United Nations slams its members for “their complicity in allowing organizations like Hamas to continue to exist in the Middle East.”

Ron Prosor speaks Wednesday at a special General Assembly session on Gaza.

“This institution was founded to stand for truth, for justice, and for moral clarity. This is no longer the case,” he tells the delegates.

“It might be too much to ask you to stand on our side in this battle between civilization and barbarism, but at least have the decency to swallow your selective outrage while Israel wages war against the extremist groups seeking to eradicate the values that we all hold very dear.”

Prosor spoke after the Palestinian Authority’s UN ambassador, Riyad Mansour, accused Israel of violating international law during its 29-day operation in Gaza.
