The Useless Nations and their hatred of Israel

Via Doug Ross

By Anne Bayefsky

According to the U.N.’s top human rights body, Israel is the worst human rights violator in the world today. That’s the result of the latest session of the UN Human Rights Council which wrapped up in Geneva on Friday by adopting five times more resolutions condemning Israel than any other country on earth.

President Trump’s administration is currently a member of this reprehensible body. To borrow Elie Wiesel’s counsel to President Reagan not to pay his respects at a German graveyard containing Nazi SS remains: “That place, Mr. President, is not your place.”

The Bush administration refused to join the Council when it was created in 2006.

On March 31, 2009, President Obama – fully aware of its entrenched anti-Israel and anti-Jewish bias – made jumping on board one of his very first foreign policy moves. Moreover, in an unscrupulous attempt to control his successor, the former President obtained yet another three-year term for the United States on the Council that began on January 1, 2017.

Here are a few examples of exactly what this despicable body has stood for

In its history, the Council has condemned Israel more often than any other of the 192 UN states. Comparative totals after this session’s pogrom tell the story:  Israel – 78 resolutions and decisions, Syria – 29, North Korea – 9, and Iran – 6.  As for Saudi Arabia, Russia, and China, there’s nothing at all.

Go read the rest, it will sicken anyone with any grasp on the truth about Israel. The U.N. or Useless Nations as I call it, is about as devoid of a moral compass as anyone can imagine. The Trump Team has already announced plans to cut funding to the cesspool that the U.N. has become. I would suggest that every nation that values liberty, human rights, and that opposes terrorism, and Leftism should not only cut funding but get out of the Useless nation entirely.

Trump Administration scolds Useless Nations over bogus Israel report

Why do I refer to the U.N. as the Useless Nations? If you have to ask…………

H/T The Right Scoop

Nikki Haley and the Trump administration didn’t take lightly a United Nations report co-written by a known anti-Israel scholar that accused Israel of being an apartheid state:

FOX NEWS – A United Nations report co-authored by anti-Israel scholar Richard Falk on Wednesday accused the U.S. ally of being “guilty of the crime of apartheid” – triggering a furious response from the Trump administration, which demanded the U.N. “withdraw” the study.

America’s U.N. ambassador Nikki Haley blasted the report as “anti-Israel propaganda” in a statement late Wednesday.

“The United States stands with our ally Israel and will continue to oppose biased and anti-Israel actions across the UN system and around the world,” Haley said.

The report was commissioned by the U.N Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia. While apartheid originally was associated with South Africa, the report said Israel’s policies today meet the definition of “an institutionalized regime of systematic oppression and domination” by one racial group over another.

The report inflamed already-frayed tensions between the U.N. and the Trump administration. Haley blasted Falk while urging the secretary-general to go further.

“That it was drafted by Richard Falk, a man who has repeatedly made biased and deeply offensive comments about Israel and espoused ridiculous conspiracy theories, including about the 9/11 terrorist attacks, is equally unsurprising,” Haley said. “The United Nations Secretariat was right to distance itself from this report, but it must go further and withdraw the report altogether.”

BRAVO!!

 

Leftist Incompetence Update: UN To Allow Iran To Inspect Its Own Alleged Nuclear Facilities

UN To Let Iran Inspect Its Own Alleged Nuclear Facilities – Weasel Zippers

Heckuva deal, Johnny

Via AP:

Iran, in an unusual arrangement, will be allowed to use its own experts to inspect a site it allegedly used to develop nuclear arms under a secret agreement with the U.N. agency that normally carries out such work, according to a document seen by The Associated Press.

The revelation is sure to roil American and Israeli critics of the main Iran deal signed by the U.S., Iran and five world powers in July. Those critics have complained that the deal is built on trust of the Iranians, a claim the U.S. has denied.

Traitor John Kerry: It Would Be Presumptuous To Go To Congress Before Going To The UN On Iran Deal

Kerry: It Would Be ‘Presumptuous’ To Go To Congress Before Going To UN – Weekly Standard

Secretary of State John Kerry defended the Obama administration’s decision to take the Iran deal to the United Nations before the U.S. Congress votes on it. Kerry made the remarks in an interview this morning on ABC News:

.

.
The ABC reporter, Jon Karl, asked, “But the bottom line, the UN is going to vote on this before Congress gets to vote on this?”

“Well, they have a right to do that, honestly. It is presumptuous of some people to say that France, Russia, China, Germany, Britain ought to do what the Congress tells them to do,” said Kerry. “They have a right to have a vote. But we prevailed on them to delay the implementation of that vote out of respect of our Congress.”

Obama’s Revenge Against Israel – Jay Sekulow

.

.
President Obama is angry with Israeli voters for re-electing Benjamin Netanyahu, and he’s willing to risk the lives and security of Israeli citizens to show it.

The State Department is reportedly considering reversing the decades-long policy of protecting Israel’s security at the United Nations and is threatening to allow the Security Council to compel Israel to enter forced negotiations with Hamas-controlled Palestine.

This action would be reckless – and shameful. At a time when anti-Semitic attacks are rocking Europe, and the need for a secure, Jewish state has rarely been more apparent, the Obama administration would force Israel to negotiate with entities that have sworn to wipe it off the map.

The unity government between the Palestinian Authority and Hamas is a sham. Hamas is controlling Gaza and would likely control all Palestinian territories if the Palestinian Authority would permit a vote. Even if Israel were forced to deal with the Palestinian Authority, this deal would have no impact on Hamas – and it may even enhance Hamas’s power.

In my book, “The Rise of ISIS: A Threat We Can’t Ignore,” we discuss in detail what Hamas believes and examine their long-standing promise to destroy Israel.

The Hamas Charter is clear.

The Preamble for the Palestinian offshoot of the Muslim Brotherhood states, “Our battle with the Jews is long and dangerous, requiring all dedicated efforts.”

The Charter continues with Hamas’s stated motto in Articles 5 and 8: “Allah is its goal, the Prophet its model to be followed, the Koran its constitution, Jihad its way, and death for the sake of Allah its loftiest desire.”

The Charter calls the presence of Israel a “Zionist invasion,” stating, “Israel will exist, and will continue to exist, until Islam abolishes it.”

It therefore pledges to wage “jihad in the face of the oppressors, in order to deliver the land and the believers from their filth, impurity, and evil” in order to “[return the homeland to its rightful owner] and “to raise the banner of Allah over every inch of Palestine” no matter how long it takes.

If the United States does not block this at the United Nations, the international community will support the aggressors in this conflict.

Hamas does not want “peace” with Israel, and it will not negotiate a permanent peace agreement with Israel. Its Charter states that “so-called peace solutions” and “conferences are nothing but a way to give the infidels power of arbitration over Muslim land.”

How does Hamas hope to eliminate Israel and Jewish people from the face of the earth? The answer is again resoundingly clear in the Preamble. Hamas commits to “join arms with all those who wage jihad for the liberation of Palestine. [O]ur fight with the Jews is very extensive and very grave, and it requires all the sincere efforts […] until the enemies are defeated and Allah’s victory is revealed.”

This compelled negotiation could mean a divided Jerusalem, potentially the holy sites we visit under the control of Hamas. This would force Israel to negotiate with people whose clear goal is their eradication and destruction.

It is going to take dramatic bipartisan political pressure from Congress to force the Obama administration to reverse course and do the right thing. This president will not do it on his own.

We can stand up for Israel and defeat the anti-Israel movement at the U.N. and the International Criminal Court (ICC).

I know this first hand. I appeared before the ICC at The Hague on Operation Cast Lead in defense of Israel’s legal position. There, the Palestinian Authority attempted to get jurisdiction against Israel. Fortunately, our defense of Israel was successful.

I have defended Israel. The question is whether the Obama administration will defend Israel.

Israeli lives hang in the balance.

Obama Sends Message To Iranian People, Throws Israel Under The Bus – Right Scoop

Obama is showing his true colors more and more as each new day passes. This evening he published a direct message to the Iranian people, throwing Israel under the bus and proving that he stands with Iran over Israel:

The days and weeks ahead will be critical. Our negotiations have made progress, but gaps remain. And there are people, in both our countries and beyond, who oppose a diplomatic resolution.

My message to you – the people of Iran – is that, together, we have to speak up for the future we seek.

Notice that I bolded ‘we’ in the last sentence. He is clearly partnering with Iran and he wants the Iranian people to know it.

All this while Obama is making daily threats to our greatest ally in the Middle East. He’s playing patty-yellowcake with the Ayatollahs and showing the Iranian people that he’s their friend, and not a friend to Israel.

Just curious. Where was Obama in 2009 during the Green Revolution when the people rose up against the Iranian government? Oh yeah, he sat on his rump and did nothing while people put their lives on the line against a brutally oppressive government.

But now that he’s fast friends with the Ayatollahs, he’s sending direct video messages to the Iranian people.

Just makes me sick.

Here’s the full video and the transcript below in case you can’t stomach the video:

Hello! To everyone celebrating Nowruz – across the United States and in countries around the world – Nowruz Mubarak.

For thousands of years, this has been a time to gather with family and friends and welcome a new spring and a new year. Last week, my wife Michelle helped mark Nowruz here at the White House. It was a celebration of the vibrant cultures, food, music and friendship of our many diaspora communities who make extraordinary contributions every day here in the United States. We even created our own Haft Seen, representing our hopes for the new year.

This year, that includes our hopes for progress between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the international community, including the United States. So I want to take this opportunity once again to speak directly to the people and leaders of Iran. As you gather around the Nowruz table – from Tehran to Shiraz to Tabriz, from the coasts of the Caspian Sea to the Persian Gulf – you’re giving thanks for your blessings and looking ahead to the future.

This year, we have the best opportunity in decades to pursue a different future between our countries. Just over a year ago, we reached an initial understanding regarding Iran’s nuclear program. And both sides have kept our commitments. Iran has halted progress on its nuclear program and even rolled it back in some areas. The international community, including the United States, has provided Iran with some relief from sanctions. Now, our diplomats – and our scientists – are engaged in negotiations in the hopes of finding a comprehensive solution that resolves the world’s concerns with Iran’s nuclear program.

The days and weeks ahead will be critical. Our negotiations have made progress, but gaps remain. And there are people, in both our countries and beyond, who oppose a diplomatic resolution. My message to you – the people of Iran – is that, together, we have to speak up for the future we seek.

As I have said many times before, I believe that our countries should be able to resolve this issue peacefully, with diplomacy. Iran’s Supreme Leader Ayatollah Khamenei has issued a fatwa against the development of nuclear weapons, and President Rouhani has said that Iran would never develop a nuclear weapon. Together with the international community, the United States has said that Iran should have access to peaceful nuclear energy, consistent with Iran’s international obligations. So there is a way for Iran – if it is willing to take meaningful, verifiable steps – to assure the world that its nuclear program is, in fact, for peaceful purposes only.

In this sense, Iran’s leaders have a choice between two paths. If they cannot agree to a reasonable deal, they will keep Iran on the path it’s on today – a path that has isolated Iran, and the Iranian people, from so much of the world, caused so much hardship for Iranian families, and deprived so many young Iranians of the jobs and opportunities they deserve.

On the other hand, if Iran’s leaders can agree to a reasonable deal, it can lead to a better path – the path of greater opportunities for the Iranian people. More trade and ties with the world. More foreign investment and jobs, including for young Iranians. More cultural exchanges and chances for Iranian students to travel abroad. More partnerships in areas like science and technology and innovation. In other words, a nuclear deal now can help open the door to a brighter future for you – the Iranian people, who, as heirs to a great civilization, have so much to give to the world.

This is what’s at stake today. And this moment may not come again soon. I believe that our nations have an historic opportunity to resolve this issue peacefully – an opportunity we should not miss. As the poet Hafez wrote, “It is early spring. Try to be joyful in your heart. For many a flower will bloom while you will be in clay.”

For decades, our nations have been separated by mistrust and fear. Now it is early spring. We have a chance – a chance – to make progress that will benefit our countries, and the world, for many years to come. Now it is up to all of us, Iranians and Americans, to seize this moment and the possibilities that can bloom in this new season.

Thank you, and Nowruzetan Pirooz.

Now that is an outrageously outrageous headline!

Take a look at this from Smitty at The Other McCain

The U.N. And $5 Are Worth A Beverage At A Coffee Shop

That is an outrageous head line, I mean can you get anything for 5 bucks at a Coffee shop (think Starbucks) these days? But, the truth is that the U.N. or Useless Nations is about as effective as a screen door in a sub-marine

Via Hot Air:

Russia has vetoed a UN Security Council draft resolution that declared a planned referendum on the status of Ukraine’s Crimea region “can have no validity” and urged nations and international organisations not to recognise it. “This is a sad and remarkable moment,” Samantha Power, the American ambassador to the United Nations, said after the vote by the 15-member Security Council.

Sad? No, not really Samantha, sad is that you hold a position of any authority at all and are actually surprised that Russia is thumbing its nose at the UN. I mean really Samantha Power could not see this coming? I guess we know that her last name has little to do with “smart” power don’t we? Which makes her a perfect fit with Team Obama.

UN Climate Chief: How Do You Fight Global Warming? Why, COMMUNISM, Of Course!

UN Climate Chief: Communism Is Best To Fight Global Warming – Daily Caller

United Nations climate chief Christiana Figueres said that democracy is a poor political system for fighting global warming. Communist China, she says, is the best model.

.

.
China may be the world’s top emitter of carbon dioxide and struggling with major pollution problems of their own, but the country is “doing it right” when it comes to fighting global warming says Figueres.

“They actually want to breathe air that they don’t have to look at,” she said. “They’re not doing this because they want to save the planet. They’re doing it because it’s in their national interest.”

Figueres added that the deep partisan divide in the U.S. Congress is “very detrimental” to passing any sort of legislation to fight global warming. The Chinese Communist Party, on the other hand, can push key policies and reforms all on its own. The country’s national legislature largely enforces the decisions made by the party’s Central Committee and other executive offices.

Communism was responsible for the deaths of about 94 million people in China, the Soviet Union, North Korea, Afghanistan and Eastern Europe in the 20th Century. China alone was responsible for 65 million of those deaths under communist rule.

Environmentalists often hail China as a model for fighting global warming, since they are a “leader” in renewable energy. The country set a goal of getting 15 percent of its power from renewable sources by 2020. In 2012, China got 9 percent of its power from renewables – the U.S. by contrast got 11 percent in 2012.

However, the country still gets 90 percent of its power from fossil fuels, mostly from coal. In fact, Chinese coal demand is expected to explode as the country continues to develop. China has approved 100 million metric tons of new coal production capacity in 2013 as part of the government’s plan to bring 860 million metric tons of coal production online by 2015.

China has publicly made big efforts to clean up its environment. The country’s booming industrial apparatus has caused so much pollution that the skies have been darkened over major cities and the air quality has heavily deteriorated.

The Wall Street Journal notes that China’s air quality was so bad that about “1.2 million people died prematurely in China in 2010 as a result of air pollution” and Chinese government figures show that “lung cancer is now the leading cause of death from malignant tumors. Many of those dying are nonsmokers.”

The Soviet bloc’s environmental track record was similarly dismal.

The Communist Party’s National Action Plan spent $275 billion to combat rampant pollution through 2017, including reducing particulate matter 2.5 levels in the Beijing region by 25 percent.
