B'nai B'rith International was featured on JBS (formerly Shalom TV), denouncing United Nation Secretary General Ban Ki-moon for ignoring violent extremism as “root cause” of Palestinian-Israeli hostilities.
The comments were made while speaking at the Cairo conference on reconstruction in Gaza on Oct. 12, where Ki-moon unfairly asserted, "we must not lose sight of the root causes of the recent hostilities: a restrictive occupation that has lasted almost half a century, the continued denial of Palestinian rights and the lack of tangible progress in peace negotiations.”
