    UNITED NATIONS, July 15 (UPI) -- The United Nations has condemned Israeli killings of Palestinian militants in Gaza and a rocket attack killing one Israeli woman and wounding several others.

    "Without prejudice to Israel's right to legitimate and proportional self-defense, the U.N. Special Coordinator for the Middle East Peace Process, reiterates the United Nations' consistent and vocal opposition to extra-judicial killings," said one of two statements released Friday by envoy Alvaro de Soto's office in Jerusalem.

    "The restraint that Israel has observed, by and large, in the last few months, has been noted. It is to be hoped that, at a time when the Palestinian Authority is clearly moving to enforce law and order, Israel, and all other parties, will refrain from activities that might contribute to a further escalation of the situation," it added.

    In an earlier statement condemning Friday's Qassam rocket attack, de Soto said it illustrated the urgency of ensuring security and ending violence, adding, "It is understandable that Israel should have felt it necessary to react strongly."

    BFD. Israel and the Palestinian state are both terrorist groups. Let's stay out of it and hope they both kill each other off.

    You are advocating that the world stand by and do nothing but watch a massacre?

    To call Israel a "Terrorist State" is so naive it's not even funny...

    This is just like the UN critizising China for acting like its going to invade Taiwan, then critisizing Taiwan for those provocative elections they've insisted on having.

    What I hate is that when the U.N. says it is against "extra-judicial" killings, it means that when some guy thows off his coat to reveal an explosives vest or an automatic weapon, they should try to arrest him rather than shoot him.

    What always cracks me up, with all those that talk of the Jewish 'influence' is what the world, via the UN has said. Googled UN resolutions Israel and come up with this:

    Google UN resolutions Palestinians and get:

    0, nothing other than in response to resolutions against Israel.

    Gee, wonder why the US stands behind Israel? Lord knows, no other country does.
