    TRANSCRIPT: "WE HAVE ALLEGATIONS OF SO-CALLED INFILTRATION BY WHAT THE ISRAELI AUTHORITIES THEMSELVES ADMIT ARE PRIVATE INDIVIDUALS, WHILE ON THE OTHER(HAND) THE ISRAELI ARMED FORCES THEMSELVES ARE INVOLVED IN AN ACT OF WAR. A WAR CRIME, SIR, FOR WHICH THE ISRAELI GOVERNMENT HAS OFFICIALLY AND PUBLICALLY ASSUMED RESPONSIBILITY. MR. PRESIDENT, WE ARE HERE AS CUSTODIANS OF PEACE. WE CARRY OUT OUR FUNCTIONS SERIOUSLY AND SOLEMNLY. WE SHOULD NOT ALLOW THIS COUNCIL TO BECOME A FORUM FOR ZIONIST MANOEUVRES OF THE TYPE WE ARE NOW ENCOUNTERING."



    "I WOULD MERELY LIKE TO SAY, MR. PRESIDENT, THAT I DO NOT THINK THAT THE COUNCIL IS FAMILIAR WITH THIS TYPE OF 'AD PERSONAN' ARGUMENT IN THE SERIOUS MATTER TO WHICH IT IS DIRECTING ITS ATTENTION. AND IF THIS IS THE KIND OF DEBATING TACTICS TO WHICH THE REPRESENTATIVE OF JORDAN FEELS OBLIGED TO RESORT, I WOULD MERELY SUGGEST THAT HE DOES NOT INDICATE A VERY FIRM BELIEF ON HIS PART IN THE SUBSTANCE OF HIS GOVERNMENT'S CASE."
