Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann Accuses Israel of Gaza -'GENOCIDE'


Asshole of the Month

Winds of Jihad featured this shady character on a few previous occasions. Like here.

Brockman, this utterly corrupt Jew-hating cretin, is firmly in the Arab pocket and is one of the main-supporters of the OIC’s bill to make criticism of Islam a crime. Brockman: “No one should try to defame Islam or any other religion, he said, adding: “We should respect all religions.”…

* Fortunately, this act of treason, instigated by the OIC under the leadership of Ekmeleddin Ihsanoglu is now hitting the MSM. Lets see what comes of it. The damage is already done. JW

* The United Nations tries to outlaw criticism of Islam

The president of the UN General Assembly has condemned Israel’s killings of Palestinians in its Gaza offensive as “genocide”.

* Old commies and Nazi’s are not so different. Here you can watch Brockman releasing his bile in the old familiar ways:


Miguel d’Escoto Brockmann also said he had never believed that the UN Security Council would be able to stop the violence in Gaza and that Ehud Olmert, the Israeli prime minister, had practically told the UN to “mind their own business” by continuing the offensive.

“The number of victims in Gaza is increasing by the day… The situation is untenable. It’s genocide,” d’Escoto said at the UN in New York.

About 970 Palestinians have been killed and 4,300 injured since Israel began its Gaza offensive on December 27, which it says is to stop Palestinian fighters attacking Israel with rockets.

Emergency session

The UN General Assembly said on Tuesday that it was set to hold an emergency session on Thursday to discuss the crisis after a previous session was postponed last week ahead of a UN Security Council vote on the issue.

The Security Council adopted a resolution calling for a ceasefire in Gaza, but Israel has escalated its offensive and Palestinian rocket fire has also continued.


“There have been some who were under the illusion that the Security Council would do something that could help the situation,” d’Escoto said. “I never thought so.

“Now we’re faced with not only with a lack of compliance but with a prime minister of Israel who has practically responded to the Security Council by saying ‘mind your own business’.

“It’s unbelievable that a country that owes its existence to a general assembly resolution could be so disdainful of the resolutions that emanate from the UN.”

D’Escoto, a former Roman Catholic priest and Nicaragua foreign minister, is known for his outspoken criticism of Israel and last year likened Israel’s treatment of the Palestinians to the racist apartheid system previously used in South Africa.

Gabriela Shalev, Israel’s ambassador to the UN, called d’Escoto an “Israel hater” for having hugged Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, the Iranian president and a vocal critic of Israel.

D’Escoto also said the UN had to bear some responsibility for the long-standing conflict in the Middle East as it had allowed the creation of the state of Israel in 1948, leaving the Palestinians stateless.

“You have to attack problems at their root cause and the Palestinian people have been subjected to subhuman treatment for decades and this [the Israeli offensive] is going to make matters worse.”

UN official accuses his organization of complicity in Gaza tragedy

Middle East News

New York – The outspoken UN General Assembly president on Thursday accused the world body of ‘direct complicity’ in the tragedy unfolding in Gaza Strip, which began 19 months ago with the Israeli blockade of the territory with 1.5 million Palestinians.

Miguel d’Escoto Brockmann, president of the 192-nation assembly, opened a one-day debate on the crisis in Gaza, lashing out at Israel and some UN Security Council members for the current fighting.

He said the UN has failed to protect the population in Gaza.

‘But there is another violation – one in which we, as the United Nations, are directly complicit,’ he said, citing the Israel closure of crossings into Gaza starting in 2007.

‘The blockade has been endorsed, at least tacitly, by powerful parties grouped in the quartet, placing this organization in a dubious role and in violation of the obligations under the UN Charter and international law,’ Miguel d’Escoto said.

The quartet, the group mediating the Middle East peace process, is composed of the UN, the European Union, the United States and Russia.

Since assuming the leadership of assembly, Miguel d’Escoto has infuriated Israel for his sharp criticism. He also rankled UN members when he demanded the democratisation of the organization.

The 118-nation Non-Aligned Movement, known as NAM, requested Miguel d’Escoto to re-convene the emergency assembly session dealing with the Middle East.

The session began when Palestinians launched the intifada against Israel years ago and can be reconvened to discuss a new crisis. The NAM would be expected to introduce a draft resolution dealing with the Gaza fighting in the assembly debate.

Miguel d’Escoto is particularly sympathetic with the NAM because he was a former foreign minister of the leftist Sandinista government in Nicaragua. He is also a former Maryknoll priest and has preferred the title of a father in UN documents.

  1. If there are 1.5 million people in Gaza, and about 970 (most of them active combatants) have been killed so far, this looks not like a genocide. It’s just a war, or, rather, one battle in the resistance to Global Jihad – and a battle with a remarkably low civilian death toll, especially considering that Hamas appears to be deliberately placing civilians (women and young children) in harm’s way on every possible occasion.

    Someone needs to remind Mr Brockman what genocide really looks like; what real mass murder is. Genocide is what the Turkish Muslims did to the Armenians – one million dead, pretty much all of the victims utterly defenceless. Near-genocide is what the Indonesian Malay Muslims did to the Melanesian Christians and animists of East Timor – 200 000 killed, nearly a third of the pre-invasion population. Genocide is what the Arab/ised Muslims have attempted by killing over a million people in the southern Sudan and what they are still attempting in Darfur. Genocide is what Pol Pot did to the Cambodians. Genocide is what happened in Rwanda: tens of thousands, hundreds of thousands simply butchered in a matter of days in an orgy of destruction.

    Matched against that, it is sheer nonsense to call what is happening in Gaza, a ‘genocide’.

  2. There is something to be said for the propaganda of Hamas, it reads well. Other than the fact that Hamas is a pariah on this planet the entire idea that Islam should be forced upon all who reject it is still in the quran. There is still a fatwa supporting jihad when Islam is denied. Someone should begin to address the UN with that and see how much pity is raised.
    at Islamweb.net there are two very telling fatwas, 83989 & 82482. Unlike typical religions, Islam has a legal bookstore where nothing is removed just because it has been superceeded or aged beyond relativaty. Every fatwa carries the weight it had when given. In all respects Islam is a government not a belief as touted by the media and PC heads of state. Truth is what is needed.

  3. Under the state prerogative of universal jurisdiction against war criminals and their abettors, I would like to suggest that citizens of free countries swear out a warrant for the arrest of Escoto Brockmann. As you may know, Canada, the U.K., the USA, the EU and Australia have listed Hamas and Hezbollah as terrorist groups that are outlawed in their countries. Anyone living there or visiting there who finances these terrorists, provides them with materiel support, disseminates their propaganda and incites the public against Western civilization is, ipso facto, an aider and abettor of terrorism and subject to criminal charges. Amnesty Intermational and Human Rights Watch, in separate reports, have provided evidence that the actions of Hamas in the recent Gaza War constituted war crimes under the Geneva Conventions. Escoto Brockmann supportys these ghastly war criminals. He should be arrested as soon as he sets foot in any Western democratic country and removed from the UNGA presidency forthwith.

  4. The UN’s war on Israel continues — and the U.S. is silent

    But then again, this is part of Obama’s new “smart diplomacy”.

    eye on the world

    (NY Daily News) Today the UN “Human Rights” Council appointed a notoriously anti-American and anti-Jewish figure to his second prominent UN position. Miguel d’Escoto Brockmann of Nicaragua, who served as the President of the UN General Assembly from 2008 to 2009, was elected by acclamation to the Council’s lead advisory body, the Council Advisory Committee. The Obama administration representative, Ambassador Eileen Chamberlain Donahoe, remained silent as the nominee of the Group of Latin America and Caribbean Countries was gaveled through without opposition.

    Created in 2007, the Committee is composed of 18 “experts” and is charged with being “a think-tank for the Council.” Given the Council’s pathological fixation on Israel, it is clear why Brockmann got the job. It is less clear why the United States made no protest as he was appointed.

    Reminiscent of a classic anti-Semitic slur, on November 24, 2008, Brockmann claimed that our Palestinian “brothers and sisters are being crucified” by Israel. Anti-Defamation League National Director, Abe Foxman, noted at the time “the charge that the Jewish people were responsible for crucifying Jesus was used as an excuse for pogroms and other violence against Jews.” He called it “unconscionable” for Brockmann to charge Israel with, “in essence, doing it again.”

    When Brockmann was elected President of the General Assembly, the Catholic News Agency reported that the former Sandinista leader was a suspended priest who had been publicly reprimanded by Pope John Paul II for his political activities. In a 2004 interview, D’Escoto, called former U.S. President Ronald Reagan an “international outlaw” and “the butcher of my people,” and continued: “Because of Reagan and his spiritual heir George W. Bush, the world today is far less safe and secure than it has ever been.”

    Among his many other distinguishing moves while Assembly President, Brockmann accused Israel of apartheid and used his bully pulpit in the General Assembly Hall to lecture UN members accordingly. Brockmann said: “We must not be afraid to call something what it is. It is the United Nations, after all, that passed the International Convention against the Crime of Apartheid.” The apartheid charge is especially insidious, since one-fifth of Israel’s population is Arab with more democratic rights than in any Arab state, while Jewish populations of Arab states have been rendered virtually non-existent. Brockmann went on to demand “a campaign of boycott, divestment and sanctions” against Israel, akin to the treatment of apartheid South Africa.

    On January 8, 2009, in the middle of the Gaza war Brockmann called his own news conference and displayed some of the most offensive and bizarre behavior ever seen from a General Assembly President.

    He began by stating “most of my very dearest friends are Jewish people” and then went on to display a photo of what he said were some Rabbis from an Orthodox community in Jerusalem holding a sign reading “stop the massacre in Gaza.” “Is it a fake?” he asked rhetorically.

    At the same news conference, he claimed Israelis were like Nazis and suggested anti-Semitism meant something other than Jew-hatred. Referring to Israel, he said “All dictatorships including Hitler claim that those who criticize us hated the Nazis, all dictators do the same, and so also here … The Palestinians. Are they not semites?”

    On September 23, 2008, in another first, Brockmann came down off the Assembly President’s podium to give a warm bear hug to Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad immediately following another anti-Semitic diatribe. Ahmadinejad had just finished alleging: “a small but deceitful number of people called Zionists … have been dominating an important portion of the financial and monetary centers as well as the political decision-making centers of some European countries and the US in a deceitful, complex and furtive manner … [T]he great people of America and various nations of Europe need to obey the demands and wishes of a small number of acquisitive and invasive people.”

    The Human Rights Council is concluding its 14th session in Geneva today by maintaining its reputation as an institution with a greater interest in demonizing the Jewish state than in protecting human rights around the world. With the adoption of yet another resolution critical of Israel, the Council has adopted more resolutions and decisions condemning Israel than all other 191 UN member states combined.
