In an interview with New Zealand’s TV3 McCully said that the Israel-Palestine issue was one for the United Nations Security Council to deal with…not the United States.

He said: “I think that the two parties could make surprising progress, but you’ve got to get them in a room and that’s been the big problem, the Security Council should play a role here, not to try to multi-lateralise a process that’s got to be led by the two principles, but to give multi-lateral support.”

New Zealand will chair the UN Security Council next month. McCully named one priority as the removal of the Security Council veto.

    Not all Palestinian Arabs are murderous thugs. But certainly their murderous-thug-like-loser-homicidal financiers are! What era did this Foreign-Minister flop by from? Has he been living under a rock?

  2. Stan Black says:

    What a total load of garbage. Israel is a modern, flourishing democracy and the Palestinians are a bunch of murderous non-productive losers.
    They share absolutely nothing.

    • Joel Hartman says:

      Stan, there’s a load of hate and venom within your rant. I pity your anger and mendacious attitude.

      • Stan Black says:

        No need to pity me, Joel. It’s politically correct ostriches like you who deserve pity but don’t expect any from your Muslim buddies.

  3. Leon Poddebsky says:

    The New Zealand Foreign Minister is disingenuous: he pretends not to know that Israel’s goal is to live, while the goal of the ‘Palestinian’ Arabs is to destroy it.
    They say so constantly, but the NZ foreign Minister shuts his ears to that.
