I am opposed to the UN,
and always will be,
because the worst countries in the world
- the worst dictators and human rights abusers
- are members of the UN and have a vote.
The enemies of my freedom and my world have a vote.
Why should I respect such an organisation?
I do not.
This is not a happy, imaginary world where
all nations are respectable,
and the UN can deal with the rare outbreaks of lawlessness.
this is - as it always has been - a world where
criminals run entire countries,
where many nation states are headed by unelected dictators, tyrants,
hate-filled religious fanatics,
and all-out genocidal killers.
represent thugs with Swiss bank accounts,
not the people of their country.
By giving these unelected thugs a vote,
the UN loses all credibility.
No intelligent person should
support the UN,
or respect what it says,
or abide by what it says.
The UN should be shut down,
or at the very least all non-democracies should be expelled.
The idea that the UN has moral authority I find sick.
Assad's Syria sits at the UN.
Terrorist Iran sits at the UN.
Genocidal North Korea sits at the UN.
Islamofascist Saudi Arabia sits at the UN.
Gaddafi's Libya sits at the UN.
Communist China sits at the UN. And has a veto.
I cannot respect anybody who respects the UN.
If there is to be a global policeman,
it should grow out of something like NATO,
which at least roughly
represents the democracies
and the countries with the best human rights and civil liberties
- rather than the UN,
which represents every thug, junta and oppressive regime there is.
And gives Russia and China a veto.
NATO has moral authority. The UN does not.
Only if all non-democratic countries
(including Russia and China) are expelled
could the UN start to
have any moral authority.

States in which this command is not obeyed by the rulers

U.N. Should Change - or U.S. Should Quit
by David Frum and Richard Perle, January 23, 2004.

however, the U.N. has ceased to be harmless"

The UN and the Jews
by Anne Bayefsky, February 2004,
over the past 40 years, almost 30 percent of the resolutions
passed by the UN Commission on Human Rights
to condemn specific states
have been directed at Israel.
No resolution has ever been directed at
the non-democracies of
China, Syria, Egypt, Saudi Arabia, Yemen, Pakistan or Zimbabwe.
John Dugard, Oct 2007,
compares democracy-hating, human rights-hating,
anti-semitic, Jew-killing Palestinian Islamofascists
to the French resistance against fascism:
"'Inevitably in a military occupation, there are likely to be those engaged in resistance.' These people may be labelled terrorists, Mr Dugard added, but history treats them differently. He cited the example of the French Resistance during World War II, and those in Namibia who fought occupation by South Africa. 'Now,' he said, 'they are in government and treated as heroes.'"
Jews build houses - war crime!
The UN and the left think that the Israeli conflict is about "settlements".
That Jews building houses is the real problem.
Jews building houses
makes a certain type of leftist, journalist and diplomat furious.
The Deadly Israeli House Strikes Again, Daniel Greenfield, 1 Sept 2014, amusingly sums it up.
"Sudan may have built a small mountain of African corpses, but it can't expect to command the full and undivided attention of the world until it does something truly outrageous like building a house and filling it with Jews."
If all unapproved Jew houses were destroyed,
and Jews agreed only to live where they were told,
the war would
Simple graphic showing how the UN has no credibility.
Incredibly, this graphic is used by
to claim there is something wrong with Israel, not with the UN!
Richard Falk says Hamas rockets are "cries of help", Nov 2012:
"These rockets do spread fear and cause trauma among Israeli civilians even when no targets are struck, and represent an unacceptable tactic. Yet such unacceptability must be weighed against the unacceptable tactics of an Israel that holds all the cards in the conflict.
It is truly alarming that now even the holiest of cities, Jerusalem, is threatened with attacks, but the continuation of oppressive conditions for the people of Gaza, inevitably leads to increasing levels of frustration, in effect, cries of help that the world has ignored at its peril for decades. These are survival screams! To realise this is not to exaggerate!"
Richard Falk compares Hamas to the French resistance, Jan 2013.
"What are we to do with international law when it is invoked only to control the behaviour of the weaker party?
It gives perspective to imagine the situation being reversed as it was during the Nazi occupation of France or the Netherlands during World War II. Resistance fighters were uniformly perceived in the liberal West as unconditional heroes, and no critical attention was given as to whether the tactics used unduly imperiled innocent civilian lives."
I don't think Hamas "imperils" innocent lives.
Rather they target innocent lives!
That Falk cannot see this, and that the UN still employs him, just shows how depraved the UN really is.
"Should we not all be meditating on W.H. Auden’s haunting line: “Those to whom evil is done/do evil in return”?
The American global domination project is bound to generate all kinds of resistance
in the post-colonial world.
In some respects, the United States has been fortunate not to experience worse blowbacks, and these may yet happen
America’s military prowess and the abiding confidence of its leaders in hard power diplomacy
makes the United States a menace to the world".

Kofi Annan's Legacy of Failure, Nile Gardiner, December 11, 2006.
"Annan's departure from office has not come soon enough. His 10 years in power have been a monumental failure, and he leaves behind an institution whose standing could barely be lower and a legacy that is a testament to mismanagement, corruption, and anti-Americanism.
The U.N.'s new Human Rights Council, touted by Annan as a breakthrough for the U.N., is an unmitigated farce".

The UN "Human Rights" Council
is a sick joke.
As was its predecessor, the UN Commission on "Human Rights".
Sneer quotes are essential when talking about these bodies.
No matter what year you look at it, the UN "Human Rights" Council is always full of
human rights abusing dictatorships.
If you are interested in what cold-hearted communists, Islamic maniacs and tribal warlords
have to say about human rights, knock yourself out.
I have only utter contempt for this council.
Anyone who takes what this council says about human rights seriously
needs their head examined.
Sudan is getting away with murder
by Mark Steyn, 20 July 2004.
In 2004, the worst genocide in the world
was being carried out by the
Arab Islamofascist regime of
against black Africans.
The UN's response?
Sudan - that is, the perpetrator of the genocide
- was elected to the
UN Human Rights Commission.
This sums up the
UN Human Rights Commission in a nutshell.
"The Sudanese representative, by the way, immediately professed himself
concerned by human rights abuses at Guantanamo and Abu Ghraib."
UNHRC slams Israel for the 7th time, Dec. 8, 2006
- "The UN Human Rights Council passed a seventh resolution criticizing Israel
The rights body, which has only condemned the Israeli government
in its seven-month existence .."
The UN "Human Rights" Council has resolved to single out one member state - Israel - for permanent indictment on the council agenda.
It has institutionalized the condemnation of Israel as a standing item on the council agenda and institutionalized the mandate of the special investigator on "Israeli violations of the principles and bases of international law" in the Palestinian territories - its only indefinite, open-ended and one-sided investigative mandate.
There have been 9 resolutions condemning one member state only (Israel) but none of any of the other 191 countries
(including Sudan, Zimbabwe, China, Russia, Cuba, Iran or North Korea).
The UN "Human Rights" Council
has passed a number of Islamic tyrant-supported resolutions
"defamation of religions"
It should be illegal to criticise religions, apparently.
Why should anyone care what the UN "Human Rights" Council says,
when it demonstrates that it does not even believe in human rights?
2010, the UN "Human Rights" Council includes the "Not Free" countries of:
Pakistan, Qatar, Saudi Arabia,
Russia and Cuba.
No sane person should take seriously anything this Council says.
UN Human Rights Council condemns Canada, May 2012. No, this is not The Onion.

"Human Rights Under Assault"
by UN Watch.
Watching what actually goes on at the
U.N. "Human Rights" Council
is the best cure for anyone who believes in the UN.
Stunning speech by UN Watch
to the UN "Human Rights" Council, 23 March 2007.
A rare occasion when truth is spoken to power in the halls of the amoral UN.
In just 4 minutes, Hillel Neuer
of UN Watch
sums up everything that is wrong with the UN
and international "law".
"the racist murderers and rapists of Darfur women tell us they care about
the rights of Palestinian women;
the occupiers of Tibet care about the occupied;
and the butchers of Muslims in Chechnya care about Muslims.
But do these self-proclaimed defenders truly care about Palestinian rights?
in truth, the dictators who run this Council couldn't care less about Palestinians, or about any human rights.
They seek to demonize Israeli democracy, to delegitimize the Jewish state, to scapegoat the Jewish people. They also seek something else: to distort and pervert the very language and idea of human rights."
UN Watch compilation
of the kind of speech
at the UN "Human Rights" Council
that Luis Alfonso De Alba finds acceptable
(i.e. lies and abuse of human rights from dictator's lackeys).
The UN "Human Rights" Council, Nov 2010, focuses on the "crimes" of America. A comical group of repressive dictatorships
claims to be "concerned" about the lack of human rights in the United States.
Cuba, Iran, North Korea,
China and Libya
all express their concern at the lack of human rights in America.
After watching this, no intelligent person should
support the UN,
or respect what it says.
The UN should be shut down,
or at least it should expel all non-democracies.
What an Orwellian video. The UN is a glimpse into madness.
Iran is concerned about womens' rights in the US.
It is also concerned about insults to Islam.
China too pretends to be interested in human rights for the day,
and says it is concerned about the lack of Internet freedom
in the US.
Many of the ignorant thugs bang on about racial discrimination against blacks in the US,
rather ignoring the fact that the US has a black President.

and democracies (like Israel):
"We must abandon the unworkable notion that it is morally reprehensible for some countries to pursue weapons of mass destruction, yet morally acceptable for others to rely on them for security."
Pakistan elected to IAEA Board of Governors, Sept 2009.
"The country's election to the Board of Governors is recognition of its long standing commitment to the aims and objectives of the IAEA".

Abdullah's U.N. Ploy: Tell us again about tolerance, tyrant, David Keyes, November 25, 2008.
It's disgusting that King Abdullah of Saudi Arabia is even allowed into the United States.
"Any sane discussion about tolerance would feature Saudi Arabia as the precise opposite of what is desired. Abdullah would be roundly castigated and one leader after another would denounce his regime. But that would be asking too much, for it would require a modicum of moral clarity and the ability to stand up for something other than immediate economic gain.
As Abdullah waxed poetic at the U.N., the West should be working furiously to undermine his regime.
That America sends billions of dollars of arms to an unelected government that crushes basic freedoms is as immoral as it is counter-productive."

"The Israeli government has both a legal and a moral obligation to comply with the Israeli Supreme Court's decision regarding the security fence.
the Supreme Court is a creation of the Knesset and is therefore representative of all of the people"
"Contrast this with the questionable status of the International Court of Justice in The Hague. No Israeli judge may serve on that court as a permanent member, while sworn enemies of Israel serve among its judges, several of whom represent countries that do not abide by the rule of law.
Israel owes the International Court absolutely no deference. It is under neither a moral nor a legal obligation to give any weight to its predetermined decision."

That really sums up the International Court of Justice.
Like the UN and the International Court of Justice,
the International Criminal Court
cannot assume we should support it.
It has to earn legitimacy.
It has to prove that I should support it.
If its first cases are against America or Israel,
I will dismiss it as just another hopelessly flawed
and corrupt body like the UN.
It is of course just another typical, hopelessly compromised, UN group
that no one should listen to.

Turkey’s Islamist prime minister Erdogan at the Alliance of Civilizations Forum, Feb 2013, declares that
both Zionism and
criticism of Islam are crimes against humanity:
"disrespectful attitudes toward Muslims living in certain countries continue to hurt consciences
Just like Zionism, anti-Semitism and fascism, it becomes unavoidable that Islamophobia
must be regarded as a crime against humanity".
You'll never find the appalling Erdogan
declaring that the Armenian Genocide was a crime against humanity, however.
Similar to the UN's absurd conferences by racists pretending to be against "racism",
or by human rights abusers pretending to be concerned about "human rights",
we have the farce of "anti-terrorism" conferences hosted by the state sponsor of terror Iran, May-June 2011.
Of course by "terrorism" they mean any action by America, Britain or Israel
to try to stop Islamic terrorism.
Obama's "Global Counter Terrorism Forum",
launched Sept 2011,
is meant to fight "terrorism".
Unfortunately, it is hopelessly compromised by Obama's "outreach" to the Muslim world.
It includes as
many brutal human rights abusers
and even supporters of terrorism.
The list of members includes perhaps the world's greatest state sponsor of terror,
and also includes
Egypt, Saudi Arabia,
China, Russia, Turkey,
Algeria, Morocco, Jordan, Qatar
and the UAE.
