If You Are Not Part of the Solution, You are Part of the Problem

"Lead or get of the way"

Both quotes are apropos when it comes the the role of the UN and the current Israeli campaign in the Gaza Strip. The UN has done nothing other than aid the Hamas terrorists, and yesterday the UN building in the Gaza Strip was damaged by Israeli artillery fire.
Gunshots and an anti-tank missile were fired at IDF troops near the UN compound that was attacked by the IDF on Thursday, senior defense official told The Jerusalem Post.

Accordng to the officials, the IDF responded by firing artillery shells at the location of the gunmen and that the shells caused damage to the UN installations. At least three people were wounded and the building was set on fire.


Palestinians reported that an IDF tank shell also struck one of the wings of a Gaza hospital midday Thursday. Witnesses said part of the structure was on fire. The army said that the building was also being used by Hamas men who were firing on IDF troops.


IDF troops also opened fire at two UN vehicles in the Strip on Thursday. One of the cars had no markings identifying it as belonging to the organization. The other was marked as a UN car, but gunshots were fired from it at IDF troops, who returned fire.

What does the UN expect when the local UN reps allow terrorist to use their vehicles and buildings to fire upon Israeli soldiers? Do they expect Israel to reframe from defending themselves?

Just because someone or something says "UN" does not mean that it is peaceful. When the UN has allowed the Hamas terrorist to use schools, vehicles and other buildings to try and kill Israeli soldiers, why should Israel not abstain from killing those that are trying to kill them? Especially with the political Israel Hating agenda that the UN has displayed in the past and the present.

I back the Israelis in this one, if someone fires upon you, to hell with the "UN" label, fire back.
