The global community needs to do more than issue statements

A lawless nation receives a warning:

A UN official on Wednesday urged Israel to stop its “provocative” actions against the Palestinian population in East Jerusalem and the West Bank and said these unilateral actions will not be recognized by the international community.

“We reiterate our call on Israel to adhere to international law and its Roadmap obligations, and to cease and reverse provocative actions such as demolitions and evictions in East Jerusalem,” Assistant Secretary-General for Political Affairs Oscar Ferandez-Taranco told the Security Council in its montly briefing on the Middle East.

“We remind Israel of the united positon of the Quartet on this issue and its recent affirmation that unilateral actions cannot prejudge the outcome of negotiations and will not be recognized by the International community,” he added.
