Belligerent Lebanese Prime Minister Fouad Siniora continues to encourage terrorism as he tells the UN Security Council that Israel "occupies" the Shaba'a Farms. Says Siniora, "For Lebanon, liberation of that still occupied Lebanese land was a priority." He fails to mention the UN report which stated "The continually asserted position of the Government of Lebanon that the Blue Line is not valid in the Shab'a farms area is not compatible with Security Council resolutions. The Council has recognized the Blue Line as valid for purposes of confirming Israel's withdrawal pursuant to resolution 425 (1978). The Government of Lebanon should heed the Council's repeated calls for the parties to respect the Blue Line in its entirety." Nor does he mention the statement of the Security Council which verified that "...as of 16 June 2000 Israel has withdrawn its forces from Lebanon in accordance with resolution 425 (1978)." And he doesn't mention the Security Council resolution which repeated the same. Now if only his priority was really upholding international law, by preventing Hizbollah terrorists from using Lebanese territory to launch attacks on a neighboring state.
What the UN does best. The UN body on Disarmament talks on and on about its working methods, while each day brings the world closer to nuclear weapons in Iranian hands - and nuclear war.

The apologists for suicide bombers were at the forefront of calling for the Security Council meeting.
