Bennett: UN report has blood on its hands

Bayit Yehudi chairman Naftali Bennett slammed the United Nations Human Rights Council commission of inquiry report released on Monday saying that Israel, as well as Palestinian terror groups, committed war crimes during Operation Protectve Edge last summer.

"This report has blood on its hands, allows Jews to be killed and ties the IDF's hands from protecting us," Bennett said.

He added that the report ignores the kidnapping and murder of Gil-Ad Sha’er, 16, Naftali Fraenkel, 16, and Eyal Yifrah, 19, as they waited for a ride outside Alon Shvut.

"The UN doesn't think that the kidnapping of three teens deserves investigation, but an army that sends warning knocks and text messages does."

"The UN report is born in sin and will be buried in shame," he said.

He added that Hamas and Israel cannot be compared. "There's good and bad. One side tries to kill civilians while the other sides tries to avoid them."

He ended with strong words, saying Israel will continue to defend itself "but to the UN I say 'shame on you.'"
