Days of Palestine –At least 14 of the Israeli government’s 22 ministers are opposed to cooperation with the UN probe of Israeli war crimes in Gaza. Israeli Channel 2 survey shows.
The ministers, who recommend that Israel rebuffs the UN probe, include Finance Minister Yair Lapid, Justice Minister Tzipi Livni, Economy Minister Naftali Bennett, Foreign Minister Avigdor Liberman, Interior Minister Gideon Sa’ar, and Strategic Affairs Minister Yuval Steinitz.
Bennett calls the committee “an anti-Semitic circus,” while Livni says the establishment of the committee “encourages terror.” Lapid calls the probe “ridiculous” and “a disgrace to the UN.”
The remaining eight ministers — including Defence Minister Moshe Ya’alon, Communications Minister Gilad Erdan, and Science and Technology Minister Ya’akov Peri — refuse to comment.
It is worth mentioning that the Israeli occupation and the states that support it respect the UN when it is against the Palestinians, but when it is pro-Palestinians, and this is very rare, they are opposed to it.
