    TRANSCRIPT: (SEQ 5) EBAN: "THE FACT IS, YOU CANNOT UNDERSTAND THE ISRAELI ATTITUDE ON UNITED NATIONS MATTERS UNLESS YOU BEAR THIS IN MIND: THAT HUNDREDS OF OUR PEOPLE HAVE FALLEN AS VICTIMS OF ARAB VIOLENCE AND FOR EACH AND EVERY ONE OF THOSE VICTIMS THERE IS NOT ONE SINGLE TEAR, NOT ONE SINGLE WORD OF COMPASSION OR OF REGRET BY UNITED NATIONS ORGANS SINCE THE YEAR 1951, WHEN THE VETO POLICY WAS APPLIED. IN OTHER WORDS IT WAS A MATTER OF CERTAINTY THAT THE SECURITY COUNCIL WILL NEVER ADOPT ANY RESOLUTION WHICH IS UNPLEASING TO THE ARAB STATES. THIS MIGHT BE A DEPLORABLE FACT, BUT IT IS A FACT--EVERYBODY KNOWS IT. IN OTHER WORDS, IF ARMIES WERE TO CONVERGE INTO ISRAEL FROM ALL SIDES AND IF ALL OUR CITIES WERE TO BE BOMBED WITHOUT A PROVOCATION, THE SECURITY COUNCIL WOULD DO AND SAY NOTHING."
