As Benjamin Netanyahu said prophetically to Murray McCully in this video the only way to achieve a peaceful outcome is through direct negotiations not by Fiat. Israel used direct negotiations to broker peace with both Jordan and Egypt. This was a huge achievement considering both countries had declared war on Israel and attacked it. Israel won the war and brokered peace so McCully should have listened to Netanyahu because he knows what he is talking about. The UN’s fiat against Israel has made the situation much, much, worse not better as they have claimed.
The resolution “doesn’t bring peace closer. It pushes it further away,”
As the head of the security council, McCully did not go after Iran for violating all the security council’s resolutions. In fact, the security council under his leadership REMOVED sanctions against Iran despite the fact that Iran presents a serious challenge to peace and security in the Middle East. Iran has a vast terror network over five continents and continues to grow its nuclear stockpile yet McCully and the UN acted against a country that is constantly defending itself against terrorism. A country that Iran wants to use its nuclear weapons against. A country that wants peace with its neighbours, not war. A country that only wants some security as it is surrounded by hostile un-democratic countries.
McCully and the UN may call their actions a ” victory ” but look at what have they actually achieved:
