Israel-Palestine Conflict and UN

“The longer the fear, distrust, appetite for revenge, hatred, and anxiety fester and deepen further – the more lethal the psychological chasm grows and the darker the shadow it will cast over generations to come,” says UN General Assembly President Dennis Francis

Nov. 29: As we all know the Israel-Palestine conflict has been going on for about two months now, in which more than 16,000 Palestinians and about 1200 Israelis, including 6,150 children and 4,000 women, according to health authorities in the enclave, have been killed so far. And, 60% of the housing units or societies and many hospitals and schools have been destroyed in Gaza.

The question is where is “The International Cooperation and Peace Maintenance Organization”, i.e. the UN and what is it doing?

As a result of the vote on “immediate ceasefire” in the UN General Assembly, most of the western countries have voted against the ceasefire.

Meanwhile, UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres has justified the Hamas attack. In response, Israel announced that it would no longer grant any Israeli visas to UN officials.

And now America and Britain, which are the main countries of the UN Security Council, have canceled the “immediate ceasefire resolution” and said they are only agreeable to “humanitarian ceasefire pause”.

With this, in yesterday’s UN General Assembly, Dennis Francis, President of the Assembly, urged UN Member States to find common ground, engage with each other in good faith, and increase collective resolve to end the crisis.

He said, “The longer the fear, distrust, appetite for revenge, hatred, and anxiety fester and deepen further – the more lethal the psychological chasm grows and the darker the shadow it will cast over generations to come.”

Francis welcomed the temporary ceasefire in Gaza, describing it as a “breakthrough for hope”. However, “it is not really enough”, he added.
