The four European members of the United Nations security council are drawing up a strong joint condemnation of recent Palestinian acts of terrorist incitement amid growing international censure.
The unusual statement, expected this week from the UK, France, Germany and Portugal, follows blunt criticism from the US of official PA radio broadcast of songs explicitly encouraging
Palestinians to engage in deadly suicide bombings against Israelis.
Western leaders were especially incensed that such incitement was aired a mere two days after ‘Palestine’ was granted observer status at the UN. The statement also condemned recent videos broadcast by Hamas, on Al-Aqsa TV, describing the killing of Jews as “a religious act in worship of Allah”.
Actually when I read the next part I thought something might be up:
William Hague, the British foreign secretary, urged Palestinians not to approve such broadcasts, saying that if they continue “it would make a negotiated two-state solution very difficult to achieve”. Government sanctioned calls to murder civilians are “illegal under international human rights law”, he added.William Hague taking a stand against Palestinian incitements to terrorism, yeah right.
The article is of course a spoof...
