    SPEAKING AT THE UNITED NATIONS SECURITY COUNCIL MEETING YESTERDAY (WEDNESDAY), MR.ADLAI STEVENSON, THE UNITED STATES?

  • Description


    TRANSCRIPT: MR. ADLAI STEVENSON: "WE CAN SYMPATHISE WITH THE SENSE OF OUTRAGE FELT BY THE PEOPLE OF ISRAEL, ESPECIALLY SINCE THIS SLAUGHTER FOLLOWS SO CLOSE UPON THE SYRIAN ABDUCTION OF THREE ISRAELI SUBJECTS, INCLUDING TWO YOUNG GIRLS, WHO WERE ON LAKE TIBERIAS. THE UNITED STATES DEEPLY DEPLORES THESE INCIDENTS."



    "NOW THAT THE COUNCIL HAS BEEN SUMMONED TO ACT IT MUST ACCEPT ITS RESPONSIBILITIES AND ACT WITH COURAGE AND WISDOM IN THE LIGHT OF THE BEST EVIDENCE AVAILABLE TO THEM. FOR US THE COURSE WHICH THIS BODY MUST TAKE IS CLEAR. IN ALL JUSTICE, AND IN THE INTERESTS OF LAW AND ORDER IN INTERNATIONAL AFFAIRS, WE BELIEVE THIS REPREHENSIBLE ACT OF MURDER ON AUGUST 20TH DESERVES THE STRONGEST CONDEMNATION."
