The Two Faces Of The United Nations
The Two Faces of the United Nations
By J. D. Longstreet
I honestly do not think I could do better today than to point you to the blog of a friend of mine, Mr. Alan Caruba. His article is titled: "The UN Celebrates “Palestinians”, Hates Jews." Here is an excerpt from Mr. Caruba's article:
"On Monday, November 24, the United Nations will commemorate its annual “International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People”, a hate-filled day that ignores its own role in the establishment of Israel.
An international institution that trumpets its Universal Declaration of Human Rights while openly seeking the destruction of the population of one of its member nations is so inherently debased that it should cease to exist.
The notion that the United States of America should continue to participate in the UN on the grounds that it is the only forum or means to resolve conflicts is absurd. "
This is a "Must Read". You'll find the entire article at:
Mr. Caruba is right on the money with his comments on the UN's attitude toward Israel. It is despicable.
What little we know of the Obama Administration's foreign policy toward Israel and the so-called Palestinians is the rumour that the US will pursue a two-state policy. It is further rumoured that Obama will push Israel to fall back to the borders as they existed prior to the war in 1967.
Those of us wishing for deminishing ties between the US and the UN will have to wait for another administration in Washington before we have any chance of that.
