The UN exposed !

Today we hear of yet another anti-Israel resolution passed by the United Nations. Like most Jews, I've lost count of the total they've handed down since Israel's formation, but it must be getting close to the number of square-miles in the shrinking Jewish State.

Before you give this resolution the slightest bit of credence, watch this speech given by the director of UN-Watch, Hillel Neuer, in March 2007 - and which the UN banned!

Mr. President,

Six decades ago, in the aftermath of the Nazi horrors, Eleanor Roosevelt, Réné Cassin and other eminent figures gathered here, on the banks of Lake Geneva, to reaffirm the principle of human dignity. They created the Commission on Human Rights. Today, we ask: What has become of their noble dream?

In this session we see the answer. Faced with compelling reports from around the world of torture, persecution, and violence against women, what has the Council pronounced, and what has it decided?

Nothing. Its response has been silence. Its response has been indifference. Its response has been criminal.

One might say, in Harry Truman’s words, that this has become a Do-Nothing, Good-for-Nothing Council.

But that would be inaccurate. This Council has, after all, done something.

It has enacted one resolution after another condemning one single state: Israel. In eight pronouncements—and there will be three more this session—Hamas and Hezbollah have been granted impunity. The entire rest of the world—millions upon millions of victims, in 191 countries—continue to go ignored.

So yes, this Council is doing something. And the Middle East dictators who orchestrate this campaign will tell you it is a very good thing. That they seek to protect human rights, Palestinian rights.

So too, the racist murderers and rapists of Darfur women tell us they care about the rights of Palestinian women; the occupiers of Tibet care about the occupied; and the butchers of Muslims in Chechnya care about Muslims.

But do these self-proclaimed defenders truly care about Palestinian rights?

Let us consider the past few months. More than 130 Palestinians were killed by Palestinian forces. This is three times the combined total that were the pretext for calling special sessions against Israel in July and November. Yet the champions of Palestinian rights—Ahmadinejad, Assad, Khaddafi, John Dugard—they say nothing. Little 3-year-old boy Salam Balousha and his two brothers were murdered in their car by Prime Minister Haniyeh’s troops. Why has this Council chosen silence?

Because Israel could not be blamed. Because, in truth, the despots who run this Council couldn’t care less about Palestinians, or about any human rights.

They seek to demonize Israeli democracy, to delegitimize the Jewish state, to scapegoat the Jewish people. They also seek something else: To distort and pervert the very language and idea of human rights.

You ask: What has become of the founders’ dream? Of Eleanor Roosevelt, of Rene Casssin, of John Humphrey, P.C. Chang, Charles Malik, who assembled here in Geneva sixty years ago? With terrible lies and moral inversion, it is being turned into a nightmare.

Thank you, Mr. President.


For the first time in this session I will not express thanks for that statement. I shall point out to the distinguished representative of the organization that just spoke, the distinguished representative of United Nations Watch, if you'd kindly listen to me. I am sorry that I'm not in a position to thank you for your statement. I should mention that I will not tolerate any similar statements in the Council. The way in which members of this Council were referred to, and indeed the way in which the council itself was referred to, all of this is inadmissible. In the memory of the persons that you referred to, founders of the Human Rights Commission, and for the good of human rights, I would urge you in any future statements to observe some minimum proper conduct and language. Otherwise, any statement you make in similar tones to those used today will be taken out of the records.


The UN is a farce. How can you take seriously an institution whose Human Rights Council is chaired by Nigeria, slated by the US state department as one of the worst offenders in state oppression of its citizens with executions, amputations, forced female circumcision, child slavery, human trafficking, torture and extortion.

Its so-called 'relief works branch', UNRWAH, has done more than even the jihadists to prolong the suffering of Palestinian people by keeping the refugee camps going when their occupants could - and should - have been resettled decades ago. (The Palestinian people have received more US/EU aid per capita than any group in the history of mankind. Had all this money not been stolen by Arafat and embezzled for arms procurement, every Palestinian family would now be living in a detached home with a Merc in the drive.)

There are dozens of documented complaints of UNRWAH complicity with Palestinian terror groups. Their peacekeepers too are entirely useless, turning a blind eye to Hizbullah's massive re-arming and building of new war tunnels on Lebanon's border with Israel.

All the while, their useless freeloading 'observers' in Israel scoot around Israel in their brand new white UN landrovers living the 'Life of Reilly' screwing Jewish prostitutes and pubbing every night. All at taxpayers' expense. They pay no taxes, no parking fines, no-nothing.

And let's not dig up the scandal of the UN's former Secretary General - Nazi Wermacht officer Kurt Waldheim - whose chutzpah of standing for a 3rd term was blocked by China's veto.

Nazis, Islamists, antiSemites, despots and serial abusers of human rights: that's what you'll find lurking behind the glass walls of the UN building.

It's high time the leading democracies of the world set up an alternative body of democratic states which can be taken more seriously.
