Despite the cries of outrage from the left when you dare to utter these words…the United Nations has a LONG history of anti-Semitism –and, of course, Anti-Americanism. Even though American taxpayers fund the majority of the organization. The only defense of the left is to cry that it was the United Nations that first proposed the partitioning and creation of two states (Israel and Palestine). AGES ago. The original mandate of the UN was to protect the equal rights of men and women of nations large and small. The United Nations General Assembly is now under the control of 60 Muslim countries (mainly dictatorships and autocracies) who vote as a block against US and Israeli interests many with egregious human rights records...
A few moments in U.N. history:
A pro-Palestinian lobby began in the 1970’s. Arab/Muslim nations banded together to pass resolutions against
In 1974 Yassar Arafat was invited speak and that same year resolution 3379 was passed which branded Zionism as racism. (in 1991 this resolution was overturned at the behest of the
In 1975 the Committee on the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinians was formed. Since then
In November the UN passed the FIRST resolution that recognized the struggle of the Israelis since the initial proposal of the split state AGES ago. This was a historic break from their typical anti-Semitic pattern –and most likely done under duress to appease American/Israeli anger over the Oil for Food scandal and the miserable failure that is Kofi Anon. A resolution was passed that condemned Anti-Semitism. It is mentioned in a broader resolution against intolerance, BUT despite European reports on growing animosity toward Jews –this has never been included before.
The Committee of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People is never mentioned in the 129 page UN REFORM report that was ordered by Kofi Anon (though it is listed on the website under the General Assembly). For all school children that walk into the UN right now there is a giant display depicting the Palestinian struggle --complete with a section that describes the humiliation of being searched for bombs. No where does this display the pain or carnage that is being caused by those bombs. This display is three times the size of the World AIDS display. (?) In addition to that November 29th has been recognized by the UN as the 'Annual Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People'. This is the only specific day recognized by the UN for any state or any people. They had a moment of silence in the General Assembly for all those that have died fighting the Palestinian cause. They are using US tax dollars to have a moment of silence for homicide bombers aka terrorists. (source)
It is time for the United Nations to go the way of the
