UN Hatred Towards Israel--At Least They're Consistent

I read an article about the current unease in the middle-east taking place in the Arab countries. The author had questioned what actions the UN was taking and noted, that they had indeed passed a resolution "Condemning Israel"--the only country "not" suffering an uprising! 

This is no surprise. Back in November 2010 the United Nations Human Rights Council adopted nine resolutions against Israel. The United States remained silent. A report by Lebanon expressed its objections to "the establishment of the Zionist entity on Palestinian territory”

Israel's representative responded, “My delegation would like to state on record our strong objection to the inappropriate and abusive language used to reference the State of Israel. Unfortunately, the existence of a dominant terrorist organization, Hizbullah, as well as political tensions and struggles between different vital groups…"

And that was as far as he got! He was rudely interrupted by the Council president (the delegate from Thailand) who broke in to summarily recognize the delegation of Lebanon who declared: “If there were no Israeli occupation there would have been no resistance and resistance of peoples against foreign occupation is a legitimate right. Thank you” at which point the hall which broke into applause.

The Council president followed up with: “I appreciate the concern expressed by the Lebanese delegation”

According to a report by Arutz 7, other UNHRC members responded with verbal assaults against the Israeli diplomat--Again the Obama rep remained silent. Some of the comments quoted by Arutz 7 were:

Syria--There is no other terrorism on the surface of the planet like the terrorism committed by Israel. This entity was established on the basis of terrorism”
Syria--Israel…threatens to use nuclear weapons”
And still another: “Lebanese resistance is not terrorism.”
Lebanon--Hizbullah was only a resistance movement that had the honor to resist the occupation”

And there you have it. You have to ask yourself--Why are we pumping billions of dollars into the UN and more important, how can anyone take the Obama administration seriously when they talk about a fair resolution in the middle-east? Watch for yourself--but be prepared to be ill.
