UN Urges Israel to Protect Freedom of Assembly After Video Emerges of Journalist Funeral

Samizdat – 13.05.2022

The United Nations is aware of “shocking” video showing violence during the funeral of Al Jazeera journalist Shireen Abu Akleh in Jerusalem and calls on the Israeli government to protect freedom of peaceful assembly, UN spokesperson Farhan Haq said on Friday.

“We have just seen the video coming from this, and this is very shocking to us,” Haq said in a press briefing.

Israeli forces fatally shot reporter Shireen Abu Akleh and injured another employee as the two were covering the government forces’ raids in the West Bank city of Jenin, media reported on Wednesday.

The video showed violence erupting during Akleh’s funeral in Jerusalem when the Israeli police charged the crowd carrying her coffin.
Haq said the United Nations will try to gather more information about the incident.

“Clearly, as in all cases, we want to make sure that the basic rights to freedom of assembly, and of course the right to freedom of peaceful demonstration are protected and upheld,” he said.

No country can attack or kill journalists and those who are responsible for such actions need to be brought to account, Haq added.

  1. The beast shows itself. Again. And again. And Again.

    Not only is the blood of that Al Jazeera press reporter on the hands of the Zionist state, not only is the blood of Rachel Corrie murderer on the hands of the Zionist state, not only are all the past murders on the hands of the Zionist state, but the blood of these victims is on the hands of Israel’s enablers, its forsaken allies. For because of them, that Israel was able and continues to murder the Rachel Corries, the Abu Aklehs, the countless Palestinians, the children imprisoned. What a beast walks among us.

    That the beast proclaims its actions are justified by God, as part of God’s divine plan shows how deranged is the beast. For surely these actions are the actions of a beast.

    • ….Not to mention the slaughter of American Sailors on board the USS Liberty, in international Waters in the Mediterranean Sea, by the Israeli Air Force in 1967, which still, has never been adequately investigated by the U.S. Government, in the 55 years since Israel committed the obscene crime.

      Israel can do anything it wants to the USA, and the USA is “impotent”….No “Balls” at all !

      • Did you know that when the THINGS were attacking the Liberty, a Russian destroyer came up and the THINGS took off, back to
        israel? The uS submarine also left which was waiting to destroy the Liberty if the THINGS failed. The Russian ship watched
        over the Liberty for seventeen hours and offered their help. Hardly any of the history of the Liberty report this.

        • Wow, I didn’t know that. But, it is not surprising, Positive reporting of Russia, by Presstitutes in the West, is ‘Verbotin'(forbiden),
          We CANNOT believe ANYTHING we read in the Western MSM, even important matters such as Pandemics and vaccinations…..

  3. The UN is pathetic. They allow Israel “Observer Status” at the UN, so that any votes against Israel’s actions, by the UN General Assembly, means nothing to Israel. They should withdraw the “Observer Status” and cast Israel into the “wilderness”.

    But, of course, the USA will always back Israel, because Israel has the American Government in their pockets…..The USA is a whimpering little kitten, in the face of Israel….totally gutless.

  4. The actual anti-semites are ashkenazi… Super shocked. I don’t understand what the problem was with the ashkenazi’s
    interrupting the funeral. The’ Wandering jew” no wonder. They are hated wherever they go, even here in the real USA –
    not the communist one of today where a diabolical outfit like the Frankfurt School was allowed.

    • America’s Politicians have SOLD the USA OUT. It is their job to run America for AMERICANS, but, they have s=old their souls to The Devil, and despite their incredible salaries, they have done NOTHING for the USA, but grovel at the feet of Israel.
      It’s pathetic how “The most powerful Nation of Earth” has laid down and let Israel F–k it……

      • http://www.gemworld.com/USAvsUS.htm The left column was who were are suppose to be and the right side is what we have
        become. If we had fought to remain a Republic, Israel would not be the our problem and probably would not have existed. We were
        totally manipulated and now look at us.
