The 2018 United Nations Security Council election will be held next June and Israel plans to run as a non-permanent member.

The Palestinian Minister of Foreign Affairs, Riad al Maliki, said on Thursday that his country has enough support to block Israel’s access:

“We will defeat Israel and we can guarantee that Israel will never become a non-permanent member of the UN Security Council.”

Maliki also mentioned the letters written to UN Secretary-General António Guterres, urging intervention to stop the use of lethal force against Palestinian protesters in the occupied Gaza Strip.

According to Maliki, the United States blocked two draft statements by the UN Security Council, that called for an investigation into the killing of unarmed Palestinian protesters at the Gaza border, despite the support of the other 14 members.

  1. If Palestina does not Act on 14-5-2018 Jerusalem and Palestina will lost forever! You should go fight Armed!!! This is the last chance VOOR Palestina!

  2. God grant me SERENITY to accept the things I cannot change, COURAGE to change the things I can, AND WISDOM to know the difference. Palestinian’s standing United, Fearless & Peacefully unarmed at the Gaza border is a strong statement to the world & your enemies that together you will hold strong and invincible. Bring out the weapons at the moment and Israel predictably will use war planes & bomb creating a huge massacre to their satisfaction. This Gaza protest has highlighted your friends & your foe. As circumstances change then actions can change. 4 EVERYONE IT IS ALWAYS WISE TO HAVE A BACKUP PLAN. Old saying “don’t put all your eggs in one basket.
