Hamas hails UN failure to condemn rocket attacks as 'slap in the face of America'
Fox News

The Palestinian terror group Hamas has taunted the U.S. after the U.N. General Assembly failed this week to adopt a U.S. resolution condemning the militant group’s rocket attacks against Israel.

The U.S.-led resolution would have condemned Hamas for “repeatedly firing rockets into Israel and for inciting violence, thereby putting civilians at risk.” It would also have demanded that Hamas “and other militant actors, including Palestinian Islamic Jihad,” cease all provocative and violent actions; and condemn Hamas efforts to construct tunnels to infiltrate Israel and launch rockets into civilian areas.

But after a procedural move by Kuwait and Bolivia, the body adopted a rule that meant the resolution needed a two-thirds majority to be adopted. The resolution ultimately picked up a plurality of 87 votes in support and 58 against -- with 32 abstentions. But it was not enough to meet the two-thirds threshold needed for passage.

According to The Jerusalem Post, Hamas said the U.S. defeat was a “slap in the face of America” and a “victory for the Palestinian resistance.”

Hamas’s senior official, Khalil al-Haya, said that the result was a "victory for the Palestinian resistance in spite of American bullying.” He also thanked countries that voted against the resolution for preventing “the U.S. administration and Israel from criminalizing Palestinian resistance.”

Islamic Jihad spokesman Daoud Shehab also gloated, saying that the failure of the U.S. resolution was a “severe blow” to the U.S. and Israel, The Post reported Saturday.

On Thursday, U.S. Ambassador to the U.N. Nikki Haley ripped into the General Assembly for its failure to adopt the resolution.

“We can’t talk about peace in the Middle East until we can agree on a basic condemnation of Hamas and its terrorism,” Haley said. “The U.N. had a chance to do that today, and it failed.”

The UN shouldn't get another dime from us. It is a disgrace for the US to be hosting it anymore.

Easier way to manage this. For every rocket they send to Israel. we drop a bomb on a house. Simple plan, call it the 1:1 plan and see if they enjoy our "donations" to their cause.

They're right. It is the UN delivering a slap to the US's face and it is a victory for Hamas. It is also evidence that the UN is no longer, if it ever was, an organization trying to produce peace and prosperity in the world and is not even willing to follow its own rules. Why should we continue paying for such a corrupt organization to operate and insult us?

The UN has been worse than worthless for decades.

And yes I mean worse than worthless. Merely "worthless" would mean they do nothing at all - neither good nor bad. But they do LOTS of bad, and this kowtowing to Hamas is just the latest example. It sure as hell isn't the "only" example.

F the UN and F anybody who respects them.

Just remember the precursor to the UN was the League Of Nations, yet another wonderful idea brought to you by the same progressives who brought us our involvement in WWI and Prohibition, among other hits.

Yup, the UN was supposed to be an "improvement" over the League of Nations, but very quickly settled down into the very same hog wallow.
