Action Alert: Say No to UN Resolution Condoning Hamas Rockets January 21, 2008
The world must not strengthen those who claim credit for deliberately targeting innocent civilians.
As Israel struggles to defend its civilians from deadly Hamas rocket attacks—200 in the past few days alone, averaging nearly one per hour—the Arab and Islamic states, represented by Syria and Pakistan, have called an emergency “Special Session” of the UN Human Rights Council for this Wednesday, January 23, 2008.
The proposed resolution would condemn Israel yet say nothing about the Hamas attacks. This inverts the simple reality whereby Hamas and its terrorist allies are deliberately targeting civilians, while Israel in its defensive measures takes pains to avoid harming civilians.
Morally, Canada and the European Union countries are among the most important members of the 47-nation council, and it is vital that they register their opposition.
Take Action: Urge world leaders to oppose the UN’s denial of Israel’s inherent right to self-defense.
Thank you for your support.
