Israel’s Ambassador to the UN, Ron Prosor, spoke after the Security Council released a presidential statement about the latest developments in the Middle East.
Prosor: “Tonight I will not address leaders or heads of states”.
Tonight I want to speak as the voice of reason to the citizens of the world who need to hear the unvarnished truth..I call upon each and every one of you to stand with Israel. Stand with a nation that fights terrorism and defends its citizens – the same way that you would expect your government to defend you.”
Israel is accused of a disproportionate response to Hamas rocket attacks. Is this accusation true? How does Israel compare to other military forces fighting asymmetrical wars?
