January 10th: Day of Shame

On January 10th 1946 the first First UN General Assembly took place in London. The organisation was founded in 1945 to ensure lasting world peace after World War II.

Yet from early on, the UN's bias and corruption has rendered it incapable and with zero credibility. The organisation's corruption started decades ago and has included the buying of votes and influence by oil-rich Arab states to ensure an anti-Israel majority in all major UN bodies. Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East, surrounded by hostile Muslim rogue states hell-bent on her destruction, is the only UN member that is subjected to scrutiny by a standing committee, the "Special Committee to Investigate Israeli Practices Affecting the Human Rights of the Population of the Occupied Territories." The United Nations Reliefs and Works Administration for Palestine Refugees (UNRWA) allows its schools to use antisemitic textbooks that teach hatred for Jews and Israelis. UNRWA openly admits to employing members of the terrorist gang Hamas and has doggedly opposed any efforts to build permanent homes for Palestinian refugees. That said, "Palestinian" refugees are the only refugees worldwide whose offspring is granted refugee status as well by the UN. Thus, the UNRWA is not committing an injustice of historic proportions, it is nicely justifying and ensuring its own existence as well.

The U.N. has repeatedly held "Emergency Special Sessions" focusing solely on Israel. Introduced in 1950 for emergencies like the Korean War, Emergency Special Sessions over the past 15 years have had ONLY Israel as their sole target. No Emergency Special Sessions for the genocide in Rwanda, ethnic cleansing in the former Yugoslavia or other major world conflicts. Not a beep about the decades-old occupation of Tibet by China. If the perpetrators can't be pinned down as Jewish, who cares for a couple of hundredthousand Negroes in Africa.

The UN's Commission on Human Rights has supported Palestinian terror attacks against Israel all the way, passing resolutions supporting Palestinian measures against Israel including "all available means including armed struggle," nothing but pretty euphemisms for terrorism. That such language should come from a "human rights" body and in clear violation of the UN Charter's call for the settlement of "international disputes by peaceful means," is a further sign of the UN's moral bankrupcy.

The conduct towards Israel is not the only, but the most blatant proof of the UN's defilement.
