how not to bring peace to the Middle East

Israel shells UNRWA's headquarters, but the agency decides to continue providing humanitarian relief anyway. The Israelis subsequently apologized.

The General Assembly is now holding an emergency meeting on the situation in Gaza. Israel's first statement in the special session was to challenge the legality of the special session. GA President Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann, whom no one has accused of being overly partial to Israel, responded that the Israelis were "trying to silence the General Assembly," and the meeting continues.

Continued Brockmann, to the Israeli Deputy Ambassador: "You seem to be very meticulous with trying to boycott this meeting. I wish Israel were meticulous with United Nations resolutions."
