Qatar emir urges world to shun Israeli leaders

The Qatari emir has accused Israel of committing war crimes and crimes against humanity during this summer's 50-day war against Hamas militants in the Gaza Strip.


Sheik Tamim bin Hamad Al Thani used his speech at the UN General Assembly Wednesday to urged world leaders not to receive Israeli leaders in their "diplomatic salons."


More than 2,100 Palestinians, including hundreds of civilians, many of them children, were killed, while 66 soldiers and six civilians were killed on the Israeli side.


The Qatari leader also called on the Security Council to pass a resolution forcing Israel to end its occupation of Palestinian lands according to a clear time table.
