At UN, Haley and Danon Blame Violence at Gaza Border on Hamas and Iran

(JNS) U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley forcefully defended Israel’s reaction to the protests along the border with the Gaza Strip on Monday that resulted in as many as 60 Palestinian deaths.

“I ask my colleagues here in the Security Council: Who among us would accept this type of activity on your border?” she posed. “No one would. No country in this chamber would act with more restraint than Israel has.”

The emergency session at the Security Council was convened by Kuwait following the deaths of some 60 Palestinians along the border between Gaza and Israel on Monday.

Israeli Ambassador to the United Nations Danny Danon accused Iran of helping to foment the violence in Gaza, saying, “We do have indications of Iranian funding into Hamas. We know the riots are well-organized, well-funded and well-orchestrated by Hamas. Iran is supporting the riots in Gaza.”

He continued, “What would you do, each one of you, if a violent mob of tens of thousands were threatening your sovereign borders?” Danon asked members of the Security Council. “What would you do if your people were faced with terror attacks day in and day out? You must not give in to the cycle of death the Palestinians have created. You must call out lies when you see them.”
