Prosor to UN: Condemn Mashaal's Speech


Ron Prosor, Israel's ambassador to the United Nations, sent a letter to Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and members of the U.N. Security Council, Thursday, in which he called on the international community to condemn last weekend's speech in Gaza by Hamas leader Khaled Mashaal. The ambassador also charged Chairman Mahmoud Abbas of the Palestinian Authority with not really and truly condemning the speech.

Prosor also wrote that the international community must not sit on its hands when Mashaal calls for a Palestinian state from the Mediterranean Sea to the River Jordan. He said the world must react clearly.
