    What else can he do? His effectiveness is in bringing people together to talk, there is only so much he can do without people being willing to listen.

    Israel will just ignore him anyway

    in fact all countries do

    But if you can get paid 5 million a year for saying you want more peace in the world, it's good work if you can get it

    The UN itself is pretty useless, its simply a forum to try negotiate. The UNSC is especially flaccid and contains 2 members which are not even proper democracies.

    Israel told Navi Pillay that they won't listen to any international pressure, so what makes Ban Ki Moon any different?

    As long as Israel still have a "plausible" excuse in the form of Hamas, and the power to keep doing so (funding from USA), they won't stop
