  • Description

    United Nations Ambassadors Ghorram of Lebanon and Abby Farah of Somalia urged the Security Council on Sunday (10 September) to heed the demand by Syria that Israel should be ordered to cease the current spate of military attacks against neighbouring Arab states.

    But later in Sunday's session, the United States cast its second vote in the history of the Security Council to block the resolution calling for the immediate cessation of military operations in the Middle East.

    U.S. Ambassador George Bush said the resolution failed to note that events of the past few days - mainly Israeli attacks against Lebanon and Syria - were directly related to last Tuesday's murder of 11 members of the Israeli Olympic team.

    The resolution, said Mr. Bush, thus ignored realities, speaking of one form of violence and not the other.

    Our film shows the pleas for action against Israel, firstly by Mr. Ghorram and then by Mr. Abby Farah:-
