The Security Council has yet to say a word in response to the wave of terrorism aimed at Israeli citizens in recent months. By remaining silent, the Council is giving terrorists and their sponsors a free pass and literally letting them get away with murder.

H.E. Mr. Cristián Barros Melet
President of the Security Council
United Nations
New York
Excellency,
I write to draw your attention to the most recent terror attack against Israeli civilians. This morning, 12 Israelis were savagely stabbed by a Palestinian terrorist on a Tel Aviv bus.
The terrorist who attacked innocent men and women came from the city of Tulkarem, but he was not alone. On the bus with him and directing his murderous hand, were years of anti-Israel incitement fed to him by Palestinian leaders, as well, as the rogue regimes that fund and celebrate terrorists attacks against Jews, namely Iran and Qatar.
Shortly after the attack, Hamas – a terrorist group, proxy of Iran, and President Abbas’s partner in the Palestinian unity government – praised the stabbings and encouraged Palestinians to commit similar attacks against Israelis. Numerous cartoons such as the ones shown on the following page were posted on Hamas-affiliated news websites.
The Security Council has yet to say a word in response to the wave of terrorism aimed at Israeli citizens in recent months. By remaining silent, the Council is giving terrorists and their sponsors a free pass and literally letting them get away with murder.
I urge the Council to immediately and unequivocally condemn the recent terrorist attacks. It must denounce Palestinian incitement, denounce the Hamas terrorist group, and denounce those states that are lending their support to this murderous campaign.
I should be grateful if you would have this letter distributed as an official document of the Security Council. I wish to inform you that an identical letter has been sent to H.E. Mr. Ban Ki-moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations. Please accept, Excellency, the assurance of my highest consideration.
Yours truly,
Ron Prosor
Ambassador
Permanent Representative
