  • UN Criminalizes Israel

    This week Senators Lindsey Graham and Ted Cruz have posed a challenge for would-be presidents and all Americans: if the United Nations criminalizes Israel’s exercise of the right of self-defense it will pay a heavy price. The organization has no right to expect billions of U.S. taxpayer dollars to be doled out every year when they are spent undercutting our deepest values and our national security.
    Graham and Cruz’s comments come after learning that UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon is now weighing whether to sign off on a report emanating from an Algerian U.N. “human rights expert” that analogizes Israel to ISIS, Boko Haram and Al Qaeda. Leila Zerrougui’s rights expertise includes eight years (2000-2008) as legal advisor to Algeria’s President-for-life Abdelaziz Bouteflika.
    Moreover, in the coming weeks, the U.N. will issue another report on Israel’s “criminal” response to Hamas genocidaires in Gaza, commissioned by UN Human Rights Council authorities like Russia, China and Saudi Arabia.
    These attacks on Israel are part of a concerted effort by the vast U.N. machinery to rewrite international law to the advantage of terrorists who use civilians as human shields – thereby encouraging the use of more civilians as human shields. What begins as the demonization of Israel, affects every democratic society forced to defend itself against Hamas or Hezbollah or ISIS or Boko Haram or al-Qaeda.
    In the summer of 2014, Israelis were under fire from Palestinian terrorists in Gaza who are openly committed to genocide against the Jewish people and the destruction of the Jewish state. More than 70% of Israelis were within target range of Hamas’ Gaza rockets. Once fired, half a million people had less than 60 seconds to find shelter. Underground tunnels were discovered that opened into Israeli territory, with terrorists emerging on their way to cause mass casualties among Israeli civilians.
    In response, the United Nations launched a full scale assault on…Israel.

    Most of the rest of the sane world has criminalized the UN long ago...

      The UN created Israel, and the situation there (to most extent) back in 1947. Of course it was a different UN back then ...
      Still, the irony here borders on the idiotic.

        Well the title is misleading at best. We all know the UN has a hard on to persecute Israel, but lacks the votes to do so. Any action they wish to take We can veto. So again faux misleads its audience.

        As does the congress critters playing up to the story...

          Furthermore why is there no mention of this in the Israeli news? I looked at Ynet and the Jpost and not one post about it...

            Yes, not to many dark faces or 'colonized' races. They knew their place better then I guess.

              After the end of apartheid in SA Israel is the last country I know of where citizenship and rights are associated with race. It kind of makes me a little sick to my stomach to have to say it but it still a better country than any of it's neighbors.

              Sins of the fathers and all that so we are stuck with protecting Israel but we don't have to pretend we like it.

                You really think that? Because there are plenty of other countries that are far worse than Israel.

                  This is easily proven as complete BS to anyone with an open mind and an ability to understand history.

                    I guess Obama is right behind this UN initiative. Of course he will be gone soon but we await the political stance of whoever comes next.

                    EDIT - our bookmakers have Hillary Clinton as the favourite. I don't know how she differs from Obama, politically, but if I were Israel, I would have my ambassador on the case to find out.

                        Incredible.

                        Ignorant at best, but incredible nonetheless.

                        We are not now that strength which in old days
                        Moved earth and heaven; that which we are we are; One equal temper of heroic hearts
                        Made weak by time and fate but strong in will
                        To strive to seek to find and not to yield.

                          And of course the usual bovine excrement from Faux News. The report is about parties who are considered to have violated the rights of children in the course of conflict. With respect to the Gaza conflict both Hamas and Israel were put on the list in a draft report. It seems that some UN agencies are unsure about putting Israel on.

                          It also lists others deemed to have violated childrens rights during conflict and wars. Really is quite amazing how badly and misleadingly things are reported. Faux is one of the worst around, it is of course not the only one.

                          MM do you get paid for just posting it or is there a bonus for the more responses it provokes? How does Faux do it?

                              It is an opinion piece published in Faux News and linked to by MM who continually posts from them. Which other media outlets have published it, I may have missed it.

                              Do you think that media groups should be exempt from criticism for publishing rubbish? Also I note that you did not disagree with how it is misleading.
