Security Council Slaps Down US Resolution on Gaza
by Stephen Lendman (stephenlendman.org – Home – Stephen Lendman)
It was a glorious moment to remember, hegemonic America diplomatically slapped in the face.
Washington was humiliated on the world stage. Its draft Security Council resolution blaming Hamas for Israeli aggression got no support, none – other than from itself, despite heavy pressure exerted.
Even the Trump regime's staunch allies rejected its resolution either by voting against it or abstaining – the appalling language too offensive to accept, US arrogance too outrageous to tolerate.
The draft resolution ignored Israeli aggression, its mass slaughter of peaceful Palestinian demonstrators – gunning them down in cold blood, injuring thousands, maiming hundreds for life, holding two million Gazans hostage to its viciousness under concentration camp conditions the world community has done nothing to challenge with firm action.
