On Gaza UN Guterres Meets Sanders & Welch While Dismissing Yemen Death, Banning Press

by Matthew Russell Lee, Patreon Book Substack

UN GATE, Nov 13 – Amid Gaza the UN Security Council's failure continued on Friday, November 10. On November 12, UNSG Antonio Guterres on CNN - to defend himself. He complained: "when this is commented by the Israeli government or the ambassador, whatever, they put the first part of the sentence."

He was dismissive of the Saudi bombing of children on Yemen which he covered up at the time: "If you remember, the polemics about the uproar about the Saudi bombardments in Yemen. 600 people in one year." Yeah, polemics.

  The next day, Guterres met with Bernie Sanders but issued no read-out. Instead, this from Team Bernie: "Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) and Peter Welch (D-Vt.) met with Secretary-General of the U.N. António Guterres, the Permanent Representative of Israel to the U.N. H.E. Gilad Erdan [and Linda Thomas-Greenfield]. The senators stated: 'In our meeting with U.N. Secretary-General Guterres, we expressed condolences" - this the day after Guterres called criticism of him over deaths in Yemen, which Sanders previously raised, a "polemic."

 Meanwhile, despite a Friday morning protest at the publicly-funded mansion UNSG Antonio Guterres lives in on Sutton Place, not a single one of the correspondents let into his spokesman Stephane Dujarric's scam "press briefing" asked for a response to the protest. Not one.

 Inner City Press was banned from the "press" briefing, even by WebEx, and its written questions were not answered.

  After the first round of speeches in the UNSC Friday, there were no replies, and at the stakeout outside the Council, from which Inner City Press is banned by Guterres and Melissa Fleming, no questions at all. A fish rots from the head. Today's UN is corrupt.
