UN: Hizbullah commited acts of hatred

That's unprecedented good news. The UN Security Council has condemned the Hizbullah for its attacks in northern Israel a few days ago. Hizbullah terrorists had then launched its largest-scale attack since 2000 on jewish villages and also fired artillery rounds in northern Israel and then tried to kidnap some IDF soldiers. Sevral people were injured and some buildings were heavily damaged.

This UN condemnation is so memorable because for once, there is no insinuation of some alleged israeli provocations neither seems there to be any hypocrite call for "moderation" of the israeli reaction. Btw, do you know to whom we owe this? This could be achieved thanks to the terrible, politically uncorrect US-amabassador John Bolton... Via the Jerusalem Post:

Following intense US pressure, the United Nations Security Council on Wednesday issued an unprecedented condemnation of Monday's Hizbullah attacks on northern Israel.

This condemnation - slamming Hizbullah by name for "acts of hatred" - marked the first time the Security Council has ever reprimanded Hizbullah for cross-border attacks on Israel. The condemnation followed by two days a failed attempt to get a condemnation issued on Monday, the day of the attack, when Algeria came out against any mention of Hizbullah in the statement.

When asked what changed from Monday to Wednesday, one diplomatic official replied: "John Bolton," a reference to the US ambassador to the UN. Bolton lobbied vigorously for the passage of the statement.


Israeli officials expressed satisfaction that the statement did not include any attempt to "balance it," referring to Israel's response to the Hizbullah attack, and that for the first time ever it placed full responsibility for the violence on Hizbullah's shoulders.
Did someone say that John Bolton's nomination would be a problem for the UN? I'd rather say he's one of the most valuable persons for this organization.

But in general, I ask myself, is this latest attack a sort of terrorist "thank you" for the withdrawal out of southern Lebanon in May 2000? Does former prime minister Barak still think the withdrawal was a good idea? It is of course not the first time at all that the Iran-sponsored
Hizbullah is attacking israeli positions... Is the same thing also going to happen more often (as it already did) in the southern israeli locations of Sderot and Ashkelon now that the arabs "control" Gaza?
