Meanwhile, Israel continues to innovate and invent solutions that make the world a better place and alleviate misery and hunger.
Back in the 1980s, Ayn Rand said this about the United Nations: “Psychologically, the U.N. has contributed a great deal to the gray swamp of demoralization—of cynicism, bitterness, hopelessness, fear and nameless guilt—which is swallowing the Western world. But the communist [Islamic] world has gained a moral sanction, a stamp of civilized respectability from the Western world—it has gained the West’s assistance in deceiving its victims—it has gained the status and prestige of an equal partner, thus establishing the notion that the difference between human rights and mass slaughter is merely a difference of political opinion.
Who, but a concrete-bound epistemological savage, could have expected any other results from such an “experiment in collaboration”? What would you expect from a crime-fighting committee whose board of directors included the leading gangsters of the community?”
“When an institution reaches the degree of corruption, brazen cynicism and dishonor demonstrated by the U.N. in its shameful history, to discuss it at length is to imply that its members and supporters may possibly be making an innocent error about its nature—which is no longer possible. There is no margin for error about a monstrosity that was created for the alleged purpose of preventing wars by uniting the world against any aggressor, but proceeded to unite it against any victim of aggression.”
“UN passes 6 anti-Israel resolutions in one day, rejects Jewish ties to Jerusalem,” World Israel News, December 2, 2018 (thanks to Mark):
The United Nations on Friday continued its streak of frequently condemning the Jewish state, passing six anti-Israel resolutions.
The first, titled “The Syrian Golan,” passed with 100 votes in favor, 12 against and 62 abstentions. For a second consecutive year, the United Kingdom broke with the European Union to vote against it, joining the United States, Israel, Canada, Australia, Kiribati, Marshall Islands and a few others.
According to the nongovernmental organization U.N. Watch, which monitors anti-Israel bias at the world body, the measure is “oblivious to genocidal massacres taking place now in Syria, and its security implications for Israel and the civilians of the Golan Heights,” and it “ignores Syria’s history of shelling Israeli communities, its leader’s calls for a ‘war of annihilation’ against Israel and Syria’s 1967 aggression that led to its loss of the territory.”
Attacking Jewish control of Jerusalem
The second, titled “Jerusalem,” was adopted with 148 votes in favor, 11 against and 14 abstentions, rejects Israeli sovereignty in Jerusalem. Israel and the United States were joined by Canada, Australia, Guatemala and six others to vote against.
According to U.N. Watch, this resolution “implies that Israeli administration of Jerusalem hinders freedom of religion when in fact the opposite is true – before 1967, Jordan destroyed Jewish holy sites and denied access to Jews, while under Israel all faiths have access to the city and enjoy full freedoms.”
The third, titled “Division for Palestinian Rights of the Secretariat,” which appropriates U.N. funds for anti-Israel purposes, passed with 96 votes in favor, 13 against and 64 abstentions.
The United States, Israel, Australia, Canada, Moldova, Hungary, Honduras, Guatemala and others voted against it.
“The DPR serves the biased special committee and is dedicated to spreading anti-Israel propaganda the world over,” said U.N. Watch. “Its 16-member staff is grossly disproportionate to the U.N.’s other four divisions which cover enormous geographical regions.”
Pushing Palestinian narrative
The fourth, “Special information programme on the question of Palestine of the Department of Public Information of the Secretariat,” was adopted with 152 votes in favor, eight against and 14 abstentions. The United States, Israel, Canada, Australia, Guatemala and a few others voted against the resolution.
“The program eschews a balanced approach by overtly choosing the Palestinian over Israeli narrative, ignoring terrorism against Israeli men, women and children, and other daily realities of Israeli life,” stated U.N. Watch. “Resources devoted to anti-Israel propaganda are taken away from other worthy causes.”
The fifth, “Peaceful settlement of the question of Palestine,” passed 156 votes in favor, eight against and 12 abstentions. The United States, Israel Canada and Australia and four others voted against the measure, which solely blames Israel for no peace in the area.
The final resolution, “Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People,” was adopted 100 votes in favor, 12 against and 62 abstentions. The United States, Israel, Australia, Canada and Hungary joined several other countries to vote against the resolution…
