Palestinians are 'educated to murder,' the ambassador tells UN secretary general, whom he is accompanying on his Israel visit.
At the conclusion of UN Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon trip’s to Israel, Israel’s Permanent Representative to the UN, Ambassador Danny Danon, hosted Ban at Hadassah Medical Center in Jerusalem, where many of the victims of the recent Palestinian terror-murder attacks against Israeli Jews are still hospitalized.
“While we educate to peace,” Danon stated, “the Palestinians are educated to commit more and more murders."
While at the hospital, Ban and Danon stopped to talk with the wife of one of the victims who was stabbed in the attack in Armon Hanatziv, in southern Jerusalem, and is still hospitalized in critical condition.
As the visit concluded, Danon said: "The victims of these terror attacks were all targeted because of their right to live in their Jewish homeland, a right that the Palestinians constantly strive to undermine. The UN must eradicate the Palestinian incitement that encourages bloodshed of Jews, and is taught as early as in primary schools. While we educate to peace, the Palestinians are educated to commit more and more murders."
Danon also discussed Thursday's upcoming Security Council debate about the Temple Mount and said: "Israel remains committed to maintaining the status quo. We will not agree to any deployment of an international observer force at the Temple Mount. The Israeli leadership has ensured the site is open to people from all monotheistic religions for four decades, and it intends to keep it that way."
Thursday’s UN Security Council debate was called by the Palestinians to authorize an armed UN force to be deployed to the Temple Mount, supposedly to “protect” the Palestinians – even as Palestinians throw rocks on Jewish worshippers at the Western Wall from the Temple Mount, and others stab and run over Israelis in daily attacks.
