Listen: Israel, Hamas And Gaza discussed on Jay Sekulow
"To Jay Sekulow live. If you're just joining us, we have breaking news today at the United Nations. There's a vote scheduled for this afternoon and things change at the UN, but it should be today should be this afternoon or later on maybe early evening at the general assembly a resolution put forward by the United States. This is a resolution first of its kind. It's never even been put forward before at the United Nations. Journalists simply it here's the text of the draft activities of HAMAs and other militant groups in Gaza the journal assembly it reaffirms the support for a just lasting and comprehensive peace process between Israelis Palestinians. Everybody wants that in accordance with international law and bearing in mind, relevant UN resolutions. But first number one, it can dims HAMAs for repeatedly firing rockets into Israel and for inciting violence, thereby putting civilians at risk note there it did not just say repeatedly firing rockets at civilian territories. They use Israel specifically Israel is named legitimizes Israel by by including why HAMAs being condemned because their tax on a U N Member State number two demands that HAMAs and other militant actors including Palestine, the Palestinian Islamic Jihad. They're the ones that fire the small rockets into Israel from the Gaza Strip cease all provocative actions and violent activity, including by using airborne incendiary devices. It further condemns the use of resources by HAMAs in Gaza to construct as we talked about yesterday military infrastructure, including tunnels to infiltrate Israel and equipment to launch rockets into civilian areas when such resources could be used to address the critical needs of the civilian population in Gaza. It didn't goes on to say if this gets done we can then move on to a peace process. I want to focus on number three. A very quickly that point three the saying stop being condemned by using your resources, not to help your people, but to build Tara tunnels. It was HAMAs not Hezbollah who's now been found out to be doing this Israel discovered. Another territorial today, actually, it's being destroyed on the border with Lebanon, but it was a Maas who created this idea of territory, and that's how Gilead Shelly was captured and HAMAs who was who is still actively trying to build these smuggling tunnels that's been kind of halted by Egypt on their border. But it's always a threat to Israel. And now that's specifically is being condemned as well all of these different attacks on Israel and rarely civilians. I think it's so important absolutely one of the big issues is the fact that HAMAs does not accept the legitimacy of Israel. Hence, it is prepared to do everything within its power to target. Not only the military officials in Israel. But it is going after civilians and so- tumbling is simply part and parcel of HAMAs overall strategy, which is attack everything connected to Israel. Whether it's a hospital, whether it's a school, whether it's a house filled with family HAMAs, essentially is targeting every single person in Israel, whether they're Jewish or not. So they are discussed they're trying to destroy Israel. They're trying to push the Israeli people into the sea. And they have never accepted the legitimacy of Israel. The United States has taken affirmative steps to ensure that HAMAs will not prevail in the long run. And we're also sending a signal to the rest of the world because we've moved our embassy because we've aid to the Palestinian Authority. And because we pass the Taylor force act which eliminates hopefully, the Palestinian pay."
