Israels FN-ambassadör talade till säkerhetsrådet

Israels FN-ambassadör höll senaste måndag ett tal till FN:s säkerhetsråd i samband med att rådet diskuterade Mellanöstern.
Ett  tal som ännu en gång klargjorde att fred mellan Israel och palestinierna endast kan uppnås genom förhandlingar. Palestiniernas försök att kringgå detta genom att gå direkt till FN är ett brott mot tidigare överenskommelser och Israel kommer inte att acceptera detta.
Ett tal väl värt att läsas!

Amb Prosor addresses UN Security Council Open Debate on the Middle East 
"Today, the Middle East is at a critical moment - a moment that calls for leadership. And history will judge today's leaders not by the words they speak, but by the choices they make.

I am here today to issue a warning to the world. At this time of turmoil and transition for our region, the stakes are very high. The decisions that you make in these halls in the coming weeks could echo for years to come, well, well beyond the Middle East.

Your duty is clear: to support democratic institutions and aspirations; to promote negotiation as the road to resolving conflict; to ensure that all in our region abide by the agreements that they have signed. These are founding principles of the United Nations - principles that are now being put to the test. ...

Your choices are very clear.
You can recognize Israel as the nation-state of the Jewish people, or allow the Palestinian leadership to deny our history without any consequence.
You can work to end PA incitement and support for terrorists, or allow hate and extremism to take root for generations to come.
You can say publically that the so-called "claim of return" is a non-starter. Or you can allow this claim to remain an obstacle on the road to peace.
You can choose to support direct talks at the negotiating table or to undermine them with unilateral resolutions at the UN.
You can choose to look the other way at Hezbollah terror, or show the political courage to stop the organization in its tracks.
You can choose to stand idle as an Iranian nuclear bomb becomes a reality in the Middle East. Or you can take action before it is too late.
Today I say to the leaders of our region, to the members of this Council, and to each and every member of the UN: these choices are yours. The fate of the Middle East hangs in the balance. The time to act is now."
