Op-Ed: Israel Needs A Ceasefire From the United Nations

Watching CNN’s Wolf Blitzer Sunday night was a sickening experience as “Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process”, Robert Serry - as usual - blamed Israel for the violence in the Middle East.
This comes 2 days after America force-fed Israel a cease-fire, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu advised the White House that the Obama administration “not ever second guess me again” regarding Hamas, and the UN continues their drivel.
Serry also issued a statement which called for Israel to negotiate with Hamas – a terrorist organization. What CNN and others ignore is that the most senior leaders of the Israeli Government, including Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman have demanded Serry’s evction from Israel.
Serry has worked to funnel $20 Million Dollars to Hamas prior to this crisis – a crime to provide funds to terrorists.
He has a long history of anti-Israel activities, having expressed “deep concern” over Israel’s arrest of wanted terrorists.
During Holy Week 2014, Serry denounced an “incident” before the ceremony, which consisted of a security checkpoint before the church “despite earlier assurances… of unhindered access.” He joined “ … in an angry crowd pushing their way through.”
Serry was among the first to recognize the Hamas-PA government in Gaza, and called on Israel to lift a blockade on Gaza.
This so-called impartial advisor participated in the “International Conference for the Defense of Jerusalem” which was described as an “anti-Israel propaganda fest, intended to subvert and deny the very foundations of Jewish history” by an Israeli Diplomat.
Serry – and the United Nations – are anti-Israel. They are about as appropriate to serve as moderators as is Mickey Mouse.
