Israel's complicated relationship with the United Nations

The United Nations helped broker the the 72-hour ceasefire between Israel and Hamas.

It comes after the U.N. says several U.N. schools that were being used as shelters by Palestinians were shelled by Israel.

The history of strained relations between Israel and the U.N. goes back decades.

Richard Roth has the story.

    Rather than accusing the UN of anti semitism based on it's many call to Israel to abide to International law, you could also ask weather it is yet another prove that the mayority of the world condemns the 50 year occupation, repeated massacres, and Constance defiance of humanitarian laws. The world is not as blind as the USA has chosen so to be.

    Your network and the news networks of all other democracies are miss leading the world with your reporting. Your station and the world should be asking, "For their own preservation, isn't it time the Palestinians stop clutching to a terrorist organization like Hamas?" The free world's message should be FREE GAZA FROM HAMAS. As soon as Palestinians free themselves of a regime that focuses every resource on killing, then world leaders can step in and assist Palestine with rebuilding life in GAZA (Hotels, marinas, ports, shops, restaurants)...a coastal economy!!!!
