Ban Ki-moon Buckles Under Pressure by the Terrorist Saudi Govt.
Following a protest from the terrorist government of Saudi Arabia, the corrupt UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon removed the Saudi-led coalition fighting rebels in Yemen from a list of government forces that have committed “grave violations against children” in 2015.
The annual report on children and armed conflict released last week stated that the U.N. had verified a total of 1,953 youngsters killed or wounded in 2015 (the figure represented a six-fold increase in the number of child casualties in Yemen compared with 2014). About 60 percent of those casualties have been attributed to atrocities committed by the coalition, including 510 kids killed and 667 wounded in attacks on schools and hospitals.
NY Governor Signs Executive Order to ‘Blacklist’ BDS Supporters
Power corrupts, and gubernatorial power corrupts absolutely! New York Gov. Cuomo has signed an executive order that will penalize people and businesses that support non-violent boycott of Israel.
Cuomo said New York would “lead by example,” he said. “We are also a place of action.”
“We want to take immediate action because we want Israel to know that we’re on their side. If you boycott against Israel, New York will boycott you.”
The so-called “anti-BDS” bill is unconstitutional because it violates the basic right of free speech. It’s an affront to American values.
