Karami: UN Has Turned into a Defender of Zionist Regime

"Every new report issued by the United Nations Organization displays a new disgrace on the Zionists' influence in the international body," Gholamreza Karami, a member of the Iranian Parliament's National Security and Foreign Policy Commission told ICANA on Sunday.

Slamming the UN for calling perpetration of an open crime "legal", the MP noted that the disgrace of the UN action emanates from the fact that the report says "in the takeover of some of these vessels (Israeli) soldiers were required to make use of force, although at a significantly lower level than the force used…"

Karami said with such an organization (UN) "public mourning must be declared in the world."

The UN report said that Israel had used unreasonable force in its raid on the Gaza-bound aid flotilla in international waters of the Mediterranean Sea in May 2010, during which nine Turkish activities were killed.

The report also described Israel's naval blockade on Gaza, which has had a disastrous impact on the humanitarian and economic situation in the impoverished territory, as 'legal.'

One day after the UN report was leaked to The New York Times, Ankara suspended all its military ties with Tel Aviv and expelled Israel's envoy from Ankara over the regime's refusal to apologize for the attack on the Gaza-bound flotilla.

Turkey also says it will seek legal action against the Israeli regime for its deadly raid.

Turkey's President Abduallah Gul also said that expulsion of the Israeli envoy is just the first step in many possible measures taken against Israel if it persists in its refusal to apologize.

United Nations Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon on Saturday expressed his optimism that the two former allies could mend ties.

"Normal relationship will be very important in addressing all the situations in the Middle East, including the Middle East peace process," he said.

Observers believe Ban's statement and the recent UN report that legitimizes Israel's brutal siege of Gaza and its attack on a relief aid convoy reflect Tel Aviv's undue influence on the world body.
