Jewish groups accuse UN chief of being one-sided in Gaza, call for probe into Hamas attacks

Leaders of major Jewish organizations are accusing U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon of being one-sided in his handling of the crisis in Gaza.

Rabbi Marvin Hier said that a delegation of organizations including the Anti-Defamation League met Wednesday with the U.N. chief to express their concerns. They pressed the U.N. to investigate rocket attacks by Hamas on Israel's civilian population.

A spokesman for Ban said an official response was forthcoming shortly.

Ban has taken a tough stance on Israel, especially on the deadly attacks on U.N. schools that have been sheltering civilians. But he has also repeatedly demanded that Gaza stop firing rockets at Israel and blamed Hamas for violating an earlier cease-fire.
