In detail, according to Minister Lynn Hastings, who is deputy special coordinator for the Middle East peace process and UN resident coordinator for the occupied Palestinian territories, she has not spoken out against Hamas for the acts committed during the October 7 attack.
"Someone who did not condemn Hamas for the brutal massacre of 1,200 Israelis, for the abduction of children and the elderly, and for the horrific acts of abuse and rape, and for using Gazans as human shields, but instead condemns Israel, a democratic country that protects its citizens, cannot serve in the United Nations and cannot enter Israel," The UN
