The U.N. Farce


I am not what you would call a big supporter of the United Nations being in the United States.   In the first place, it gives our enemies the chance to come into our country and saber-rattle, like Ahmadinejad.  Or in the case of Qaddafi, he prattled on in some sort of stream of consciousness that made no sense whatsoever.  It was a waste of time.  Additionally, we then let Ahmadinejad deliver a speech at Columbia University which was more anti-western, anti-Zion nonsense.

Giving further credence to the argument of removal of the United Nations from the States is the upcoming plea by Palestinian Organizer Mahmoud Abbas for Palestinian Statehood.   Once again, we have a violent, anti-western, anti-Zion leader in the States.  The Palestinians are very good at making a case for being victims.  They go out of their way to show Israel as the aggressor.  But, we really need to look at some facts to find the real truth.

In a recent newspaper article by the Huffington Post, Abbas had the gall to say, “We will never return to an intifada (uprising). We will never return to violence,” Abbas said. “All our people will do is demonstrate peacefully inside the (Palestinian) cities.”  I guess he means that AFTER he speaks to the United Nations peace will descend upon that area because in fact:

  • August 18, 2011 — A series of attacks targeted civilians and soldiers in southern Israel, killing eight people and wounding at least 31. Terrorists from Gaza infiltrated Israel via the border with Egypt, fired on a civilian buses and vehicles, detonated explosives when soldiers arrived on the scene of the attack, and then launched mortar shells at soldiers along the Israeli-Egyptian border.
  • Palestinians terrorists fired 17 rockets and several mortars at Israel.
  • August 20 – – As Hamas announced it would renew attacks on Israelis, Palestinians fired 64 rockets at Israel.
  • August 26 – -At about 3 pm, Palestinians fired a Grad rocket at Ashkelon, despite a ceasefire announced by Palestinian Islamic Jihad the previous day. Shortly after 10 pm, two Qassam rockets were fired at the Sha’ar Hanegev Regional Council. No injuries were reported in either incident. The leftist Popular Front for the Liberation of Palestine claimed responsibility for two attacks on Ashkelon.
  • August 28, 2011 — Eight people were wounded when a Palestinian man from Nablus attacked a Tel Aviv nightclub. The terrorist hijacked a taxi in Jaffa and rammed into an Israel Border Police checkpoint that had been set up to protect the event of over 2,000 people. He then jumped out of the taxi, shouted “Allahu Akhbar” and began stabbing bystanders and police.

Furthermore, these are not the end of attacks, they continued just about everyday for the rest of the month and into September.  If this is what Abbas considers peaceful demonstration, I would hate to see what a “return to violence” would look like.  It’s also very key to remember that the United States uses YOUR tax dollars to give the Palestinians $500 Million dollars in economic assistance.  Personally, I think we are funding their bombs and aid should be cut off immediately.  If Saudi Arabia is so concerned about their plight, they should be funding them.  They certainly have the money to do so in style as does Qatar and the United Arab Emirates.

Make no mistake about it, Israel is the only democracy in the region.  Israel is also our only friend and ally in the region.  So, let’s take a look at some very important statistics regarding Israel:

  • While Jews are not permitted to live in many Arab countries, Arabs are granted full citizenship and have the right to vote in Israel. Arabs are also free to become members of the Israeli parliament (the Knesset). In fact, several Arabs have been democratically elected to the Knesset and have been serving there for years. Arabs living in Israel have more rights and are freer than most Arabs living in Arab countries.
  • Despite claims that the Israeli settlements in the West Bank are the obstacle to peace, Jews lived there for centuries before being massacred or driven out by invading Arab armies in 1948-49. And contrary to common mis-perceptions, Israeli settlements—which constitute less than two percent of the territories—almost never displace Palestinians.
  • The area of the West Bank includes some of the most important sites in Jewish history, among them Hebron, Bethlehem, and Jericho. East Jerusalem, often cited as an “Arab city” or “occupied territory,” is the site of Judaism’s holiest monument. While under Arab rule (1948-67), this area was entirely closed to Jews. Since Israel took control, it has been open to people of all faiths.
  • Israel is the only country in the region that permits citizens of all faiths to worship freely and openly. Twenty percent of Israeli citizens are not Jewish.

The only successful path to Palestinian Statehood is to negotiate with Israel.  To be sure, as long as bombs are falling on Israel she is not interested in discussing border lines nor negotiating peace.  You wouldn’t reward an impertinent child by giving in to its bad behaviour, so why would there be an expectation that Israel should give in when their lives are involved.  If the Palestinians truly wish to discuss Statehood and lasting peace, then they would be better served by acting peaceful and putting an end to the violence that is truly what is holding them back.

    Update: As of October 1st, there still has not been a vote on the Palestinian Statehood agenda. Israel will be traveling to the countries who are on the fence to the explain their case. No Doubt the Palestinian Authority will be courting the same votes. At this time the Obama administration is still saying it will veto the PA. However, they are also using their backing down talk… saying the hope it won’t come to that. But, what else can you expect from a President who treats his constituents like children when he says, “if you love me, you will…..” how very gauche!
