It’s business as usual for the UN.

What exaclty is “dispropotiante force” when people are trying to invade your country?

And why don’t they spend more time on Syria. It’s leaders are butchering their people?

I guess it’s only evil when Jews trying to defend themselves or their country use force.

It’s business as usual.
