United Nations - UN leader Ban Ki-moon has condemned “in the strongest possible terms” the killing of four people outside a Jewish school in France, his spokesman said.


Mr Ban was “saddened by the tragic deaths” of the three children and the father of two of the dead children in the shooting in the southwest city of Toulouse, said UN spokesman Martin Nesirky.

“He condemns in the strongest possible terms this act of violence and expresses his sincere condolences to the victims’ families and the Jewish community, as well to the government and people of France,” said Nesirky.

Mr Ban’s comments join the chorus of world condemnation led by Israel of the shooting of three children and a teacher at a Jewish school in France, with Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu calling it “despicable murder”.

UN leader Ban Ki-moon is as has been a disgrace to his position and a disgrace to the Korean people who should have no negative issues with Israel and the Jewish people.

"Coward. He let his 'spokesman' do the talking."

That is precisely why Ban Ki Moon has a spokesman: to speak.

Some people will find things to take offense at where no possible offense exists.

Ban Ki Moon, as well as his predecessor, Kofi Anan, have been politically impotent figures. They hold press conferences and make speeches, but accomplish little. The one UN Secretary General who was supportive of EY was Kurt Waldheim. It has been speculated that the Mossad uncovered Waldheim's Nazi past, and confronted him with it. He was told that either you support us, or we will reveal your past. In any event, his sordid past eventually came out. Strangely enough, he had the support of Simon Weisenthal!
