I’ve just invoked Art.99 of the UN Charter – for the 1st time in my tenure as Secretary-General.

Did you know that Jews are still killing hundreds of children every day, and not even bothering to try to explain why?
It might be thousands a day. No one has any idea. They are using AI to set the targets, and just basically killing everyone.
Meanwhile, their “ground war” just involves them getting blown the fuck out, over and over again.
Fight like men, Jews. Oh, that’s right – you’re not men.
United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres made a rare move on Wednesday to formally warn the Security Council of a global threat from the Gaza war as Arab states seek to use this alert to push the council to call for a ceasefire within days.
The United Arab Emirates gave the council a brief draft resolution, seen by Reuters, that would act on the letter from Guterres by demanding an “immediate humanitarian ceasefire” in the conflict between Israel and Palestinian militants Hamas.
Diplomats said the UAE aims to put the text to a vote on Friday when the council is due to be briefed by Guterres on Gaza. To be adopted, a resolution needs at least nine votes in favor and no vetoes by the five permanent members – the United States, Russia, China, France or Britain.
Deputy U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations, Robert Wood, said the United States does not support any further action by the Security Council at this time.
Guterres told the council in his letter that the war “may aggravate existing threats to international peace and security.”
He invoked Article 99 of the founding U.N. Charter that allows him to “bring to the attention of the Security Council any matter which in his opinion may threaten the maintenance of international peace and security.”
The article has not been used for decades, U.N. spokesperson Stephane Dujarric said.
“We are facing a severe risk of collapse of the humanitarian system,” Guterres wrote. The implications for Palestinians could be irreversible and for regional security, he said, again calling for a humanitarian ceasefire to be declared.
Israel’s U.N. Ambassador Gilad Erdan accused Guterres of reaching a “new moral low” by sending the letter to the Security Council, adding: “The Secretary-General’s call for a ceasefire is actually a call to keep Hamas’ reign of terror in Gaza.”
This does nothing, actually.
The only thing that can stop this slaughter is America saying “no more” – or maybe a Russian-Chinese declaration of war on America/Israel.
God save Gaza, but on some level, their sacrifice is going to free the world. No one can defend the Jews after this. No one. The Holocaust narrative is over. They are no longer the victims. And the effects of that change are not making themselves known yet, but they are going to change everything.
We’re in a whole new world now.
Horrifying scenes 💔😭
