UN condemns attack against Israel

New York - The UN Security Council is strongly condemning the terrorist attack aimed at Israel in India and the attempted terrorist attack in Georgia.

The bombing in New Delhi injured the wife of an Israeli diplomat and her driver while an attempted attack the same day in Georgia was thwarted.

The Security Council said late on Thursday that "any acts of terrorism are criminal and unjustifiable regardless of their motivations, whenever and by whomsoever committed." It reaffirmed the need to combat threats to peace caused by terrorist acts.

Israel's UN Ambassador Ron Prosor, who had urged the council to condemn the terrorist acts, welcomed the statement, saying "after seven years of silence, the Council has finally spoken against the terrorism that the Israeli people face every day".

    Talking and condemning it alone wont work. Action against Iran is what is needed.

    Can someone be so kind as to explain why the UNSC is quiet when young Iranian scientists are murdered outside their homes, but are utterly outraged when someone tries to murder a diplomat or two in return. Surely the two actions are morally equivalent?

      When your aim in life is to build a bomb that could kill millions no one will lose sleep. When a mother on the way to pick up the kids from school in India is attacked for the simple reason that she is Israeli the world is angered.
