US Strongly Defends “Israeli” Vicious Attacks on Gaza
Local Editor

In an unsurprising move, US Ambassador to the United Nations, Susan Rice, strongly defended the ongoing "Israeli" military aggression launched against Palestinians in the besieged Gaza Strip.

At the request of Egypt and other Muslim nations, the UN Security Council held an emergency meeting on Wednesday evening after "Israel" launched more than 20 airstrikes on the coastal enclave.

Highlighting "Israel's" claim that at least 768 rockets have been fired from Gaza this year, Rice blamed Hamas for firing small projectiles at "Israel" in response to nearly daily "Israeli" raids against the Palestinian population in Gaza.
Considered as a candidate for replacing Hillary Clinton as the US Secretary of State, Rice went so far as proclaiming to defend "the Palestinian cause," saying, "Hamas claims to have the best interests of the Palestinian people at heart, yet it continues to engage in violence that does nothing but set back the Palestinian cause."

For his part, the Palestinian Authority's UN Ambassador Riyad Mansour said at the meeting, "Once again the international community is witness to "Israel's" malicious onslaught, using the most lethal military means and illegal measures against the defenseless Palestinian civilian population."

He urged the council to take immediate action, adding, "A direct firm message must be sent to "Israel" to cease instantly its military campaign against the Palestinian people and to abide... by its obligations under international law."
"The "Israeli" occupying forces are now mobilizing on the ground as we speak," Mansour emphasized, highlighting that "fear and panic are spreading among the Palestinian civilian population."

The envoy told the council that a child of 11 months, two other children and a pregnant 19-year-old woman were among the killed.
Rice's remarks came as Arab ambassadors at the UN urged the Security Council to condemn "Israel's" repeated military aggression against the underprivileged Palestinian territory, which killed at least 13 people, including senior Hamas commander Ahmed al-Jabari. Dozens also have been injured as a result of the "Israeli" attacks.

Rice further referred, carelessly, to the fact that Palestinians are living under the occupation and oppression of the "Israeli" regime, saying, "Attacking "Israel" on a near daily basis does nothing to help Palestinians in Gaza or to move the Palestinian people any closer to achieving self-determination and independence."
On a related note, freshly reelected US President Barack Obama spoke to "Israeli" Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu Wednesday night in a telephone call, backing Tel Aviv's military measures against the Palestinian population in Gaza as "self-defense."

"We've been closely coordinating and communicating with the United States government," "Israel's" ambassador to the US Michael Oren told CNN on Wednesday.

Oren said Netanyahu had also spoken with US Vice President Joe Biden earlier during the day.
