The United Nations Charter provides that the group will work for world peace and cooperation between nations. This current version of the United Nations under the direction of Kofi Anon is failing completely. They are now taking sides in the Palestinian/Israeli conflict and showing exactly how Anti-Semitic it is. The United Nations bankrolled the production of thousands of banners, bumper stickers, mugs, and T-shirts bearing the slogan "Today Gaza and Tomorrow the West Bank and Jerusalem," which have been widely distributed to Palestinian Arabs in the Gaza Strip, according to a U.N. official.
Naturally the Israeli government and many other Jewish groups are upset over what they see as blatant Anti-Semitism and I can’t say I would disagree. The funds the UN provided were first confirmed by a UN official but now when contacted for more information regarding their latest “misstep”; they now deny that the funds directly paid for the propaganda. Ok since they want to argue semantics let’s do that. Let us assume that the UN never intended the Palestinian Authority to use the money to promote the “success” of their suicide bombings of Israel that led to the withdrawal from Gaza. With that assumption they at the very least we should expect a sharply worded condemnation from the UN to the PA over this use of funds intended to help the Palestinian people get their nation up and running. But the UN is silent on this topic other then denying that they favor the Palestinians over Israelis and making sure that we know that they are not Anti-Semites.
The UN is only acting out the wishes of its member nations and that is the truly frightening part of this latest atrocity by the United Nations. FDR and his peers that helped give birth to the UN must be rolling over in their collective graves. The United Nations must remove itself from any process that it has clearly and constantly has shown to favor one group, party, or nation over another. The UN failure in Darfur was nothing more then the “good old boys” from the African continent covering for their own. In fact the UN under the “leadership” of Kofi Anon has done nothing but enrich its own coffers and spread the seeds of corruption far beyond their New York headquarters.
The United Nations is a failed organization and the United States participation only serves to diminish the good that we wish to do in the world and tarnishes the efforts that the UN actually made at doing good.
