Quote(s) of the Day: Cuba, Israel and Gaza

Wednesday, July 23, 2014
The Middle East is currently in the midst of a huge tsunami - not because of what is happening in Gaza, but because of events in Syria, Iraq, Libya and elsewhere. This reality is not reflected in some of the United Nations bodies, such as the Human Rights Council, where such states as Cuba and Venezuela approve resolutions condemning Israel.
We will continue to fight terror and continue to fight the hypocrisy and anti-Semitism of bodies such as the UNHRC. When countries such as Cuba, Venezuela and the like, who do not know the concept of human rights, point an accusing finger towards us, it is a sign that we are doing the right things.
--Avigdor Libemran, Israel's Foreign Minister, pursuant to meeting with U.N. Secretary General Ban Ki Moon, Israel Ministry of Foreign Affairs, 7/23/14
