The halo-effect enjoyed by the UN, where the public trusts the integrity of its staff and its Mission, demands higher professional standards than we are seeing. The UN owes the public, no less than this young girl’s family, an apology. The immediate dismissal of Khulood Badawi on the grounds of incitement is expected.
Powerful images such as these have a deep impact on public opinion. Where Israel is trying desperately to defend more than 1 million of its civilians from the incessant murderous rain of Gazan rocket terror – it is abhorrent that a UN employee working for a body concerned with humanitarian welfare would have more concern for manipulating public sentiment than a true desire to protect innocent human life. Badawi cares more for the lie, than for life.
Call on the UN to take the appropriate action by contacting Badawi’s immediate superior at the Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs – Allegra Pacheco – firstname.lastname@example.org
This appalling breach of integrity on the part of a UN employee deserves to be widely exposed.
