US vetoes Beit Hanoun resolution
Posted by mythoughtsandnews on November 12, 2006
The US has vetoed a draft UN Security Council resolution condemning an Israeli attack in the Gaza Strip that killed 19 Palestinian civilians.
John Bolton, the US ambassador to the UN, described the text as “unbalanced” and “biased against Israel and politically motivated”.
He added that it did not provide an “even-handed characterization” of the Israeli shelling of the Gaza town of Beit Hanoun that killed the 19 Palestinians, mostly women and children.
Of course the corrupt American government will veto anything that sheds a bad light on the terrorist state of Israel.
