WATCH: UN Security Council on Gaza Massacres

The U.N. Security Council on Tuesday and Wednesday held a marathon debate on the ongoing atrocities being committed in Gaza by Israel. 

More than 70 speakers, including Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, debated the ongoing attacks on Gaza by Israel, whose “clear and repeated rejection” of the two-State solution “is unacceptable,” said U.N. Secretary-General António Guterres, who opened the two-day debate.

He said “this refusal, and the denial of the right to statehood to the Palestinian people, would indefinitely prolong a conflict that has become a major threat to global peace and security.”

Most speakers called for an immediate ceasefire and supported the two-state solution. “Stop this massacre,” demanded the deputy prime minister of Jordan.

“We are running out of time. There are two choices: a spreading fire or a ceasefire,” warned the foreign affairs minister for the Observer State of Palestine. 

On the sidelines, Lavrov held the following press conference at U.N. headquarters:

    Lavrov is a gem. On the other side, the US has Blinken, an extraordinarily arrogant 2nd generation Deep Stater with little knowledge of history and no desire to learn. Blinken is a perfect fit into a Joe Biden cabinet, and that is not a compliment. Blinken is stuck in 1990 when a US Secretary of State could walk into a meeting in almost every country in the world and simply say “this is what’s going to happen” and that’s what happened. There is no hope of educating Blinken as to our current weakened status and the result is we are involved in unnecessary wars/conflicts in Ukraine, Gaza, Lebanon, yemin, Syria, and iraq. And Blinken could get us into two more, Iran and Taiwan. Blinken is a disaster.

      Antony “I come here as a Jew!” Blinken is a Proud Zionist like his boss Genocide Joe. In DC, Israelis are much more important than Americans due to campaign donations, which can make or break our corrupt politicians’ careers.

    As they pull the victims from the rubble, they will of course find bomb shrapnel with English lettering on them, as befitting NATO standard ordinance likely pulled from a NATO arsenal to be shipped to supply the genocide under America’s “Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition” policy.

      This slaughter would now be over had the USA not replenished the Zionists occupiers stocks of bombs and ammunition when the Zionist occupiers emptied their stock of bombs and ammunition.

    It’s wild how the highfalutin speeches a state delivers to the UN can be so out of whack with the actual actions of the state. It’s fine to gift weapons of mass destruction to the culprit state as long as you say at the UN that what they’re doing with them is naughty. How have we gotten so tolerant of such fever pitch level hypocrisy? Why is there no way to just put our foots down and demand things proceed without the charade? They get away with it on the apathy of the people. And apathy is winning the day.

      It is not apathy as much as it a lack of information. Mainstream media has censored and blacked out all information about the genocide of the Palestinians.

    Barbaric Israel’s latest attack on the jam packed UN shelter in the Khan Younis area of southern Gaza, once again causing “mass casualties” of innocents, is no less than a last ditch attempt to maximize pressure on the ICJ only hours before its forthcoming ruling.
    Nothing is more obvious at this point, about its intent in committing genocide, than this show of malicious inhumanity!

      All true.

      That ruling is already in. The judges have already voted. They would have already picked judges to write the ruling, and others might write dissents. By Wednesday and Thursday, at best staff is just reviewing the documents looking for embarrassing typos. It has to go to the printers in time so that the stack of documents to hand out at the session are ready.

      Thus, if this has anything to do with the ICJ, its in the form of trying to commit a few more crimes before the ruling becomes official. Although the bombing of the UN facilities seems more like a general thumbing of the nose towards anyone in the world who cares about international law and thus any notion of peace.

        Since most of the judges are from ZOG countries, the ruling in favour of the occupiers is a forgone conclusion.
