Chairwoman of UN Human Rights Council Condemns Israel for Not Sharing Iron Dome w/Hamas

“Hey, where’s our Iron Dome?”
There’s the right way. The wrong way. And the United Nations way.
Among the UN’s long bill of particulars against the beleaguered Jewish state comes the almost unbelievable accusation that Israel’s refusal to share its Iron Dome ballistic missile defense shield with the “governing authority” of Gaza – i.e. Hamas, the terror group created to pursue the extermination of the Jewish state and now waging a terrorist war against it – constitutes a war crime against the civilians of Gaza.
The UN chairwoman criticized the U.S. for helping fund Israel’s Iron Dome system which has saved countless Israeli and Palestinian lives. “No such protection has been provided to Gazans against the shelling,” she said.
Gaza wouldn’t need protection if Hamas didn’t insist on shelling Israel. Does the UN actually expect the US to help fund a defense system for Hamas?
Either that or it expects Israel to extend Iron Dome to protect Gaza against Hamas rockets that go off course.
I’m not sure which is crazier and with the UN Human Rights Council, the craziest option is usually the right one.
