Former UNESCO Director-General : Israel killed hundreds of children

"I'd burn Israeli books myself if I found any in libraries in Egypt." (Farouk Hosni)
"Having killed hundreds of children they [?] have no right to criticize." (Federico Mayor)

More incitement to hatred.

Commenting on the opposition to the appointment of the Egyptian Culture Minister, Farouk Hosni, to the position of Director-General of UNESCO, Federico Mayor Zaragoza, a former Spanish Director-General of UNESCO from 1987 to 1999 said (translated from the French):

"I do not agree with these criticisms, which, incidentally, come from Israeli representatives. Who do they think they are to make such remarks. Having killed hundreds of children they have no right to criticize. It is impossible for them to criticize after what they did in Gaza. "
