In the world according to the UN, the world’s two worst serial human rights abusers are the United States of America and the State of Israel.
More UN resolutions have been passed condemning Israel than any other state — far more than those passed against all Islamic states — including Saddam’s Iraq — combined.
There are 52 Islamic states. But of the 700-plus General Assembly resolutions passed since the UN’s 1945 establishment, nearly 450 condemn Israel.
There are 190 nations in the United Nations. And over sixty percent of all General Assembly resolutions condemn just ONE member, Israel!
Here are a few examples of the kinds of Israeli actions worthy of global condemnation;
– General Assembly Resolution 250 “calls on Israel to refrain from holding military parade in Jerusalem.”
– General Assembly Resolution 251 “deeply deplores Israeli military parade in Jerusalem in defiance of Resolution 250.”
– General Assembly Resolution 252 “declares invalid Israel’s acts to unify Jerusalem as her capital”
– General Assembly Resolution 271 “condemns’ Israel’s failure to obey UN resolutions on Jerusalem”
– General Assembly Resolution 476 “reiterates’ that Israel’s claims to Jerusalem are null and void”
– General Assembly Resolution 673 “deplores Israel’s refusal to cooperate with the United Nations”
In 2002, the State of Israel voted WITH the United States in 92.6% of all matters the US put before the UN. It is instructive to compare Israel’s loyalty to Washington with some of America’s other ‘allies’.
Great Britain, our allegedly ‘closest’ ally, voted WITH the US about 60% of the time. Australia 56% France about 54%.
Neighbor and trading partner Canada voted with the US about 49% of the time. America’s second largest trading partner, Japan, sided with Washington about 42% of the time.
As to our Islamic and Arab ‘allies’, the UAE voted AGAINST the US 88% of the time. The Saudis, 90%. Pakistan, 87%.
Egypt (who receives $2 billion in annual US aid) 86%. Jordan, representing ‘moderate’ Islam, votes against the US at the UN 88% of the time.
In May, 2001, the United States was kicked off the UN Human Rights Commission. Amnesty International concluded in its 2002 report to the UN that the United States “leads the world in human rights violations since September 2001.”
It is important to remember that, while the UN Security Council passed resolutions demanding Saddam’s compliance with existing resolutions, the General Assembly has NEVER issued a condemnation of an Arab state, including Saddam’s Iraq.
Sudan held a seat on the UNHRC while simultaneously conducting genocide against its non-Islamic population. The same year the UN kicked the US off the UNHRC, it elected Khadaffi’s Libya (33–3) to serve as the Commission’s chair.
America’s only genuine ally is Israel. Israel’s only genuine ally is America.
Interestingly, they are the only two nations denying what is, to the rest of the world, conventional wisdom.
Both the United States and Israel are bucking a stacked deck when it comes to the international community.
In the case of the Sudan, it took the UN almost four years to acknowledge that an Islamic regime wiping out it’s non-Islamic population was a human rights violation.
So far, the UN has done nothing except talk about it as the massacres continue unabated.
There is one Jewish state in the UN. Its only ally is a nation widely criticized as the world’s only Christian nation.
There are fifty-two Islamic states, with the remainder being avowedly secular. Virtually ALL of them stand in lockstep opposition to both Israel and the United States.
The press calls it a ‘coming war of civilizations’ — but only someone with an incredible capacity for self-delusion could fail to recognize it as a war between the God of the Bible and the god of Islam.
