JERUSALEM, Israel — The U.N. was founded to promote the well-being of all its member nations. But when it comes to Israel, the reality on the ground doesn’t seem worth factoring in.
Fellow patriots, please listen to this short, inspiring message from General Flynn. General Michael Flynn exemplifies patriotism, courage, and love of God and country - despite some of his own countrymen relentlessly attacking him. Donations for his defense are greatly appreciated. If you can only give $5.00, please do so - every little bit helps. Thank you so much, and God bless. Letter from General Flynn.
The lengths to which the U.N. goes to single out Israel for its alleged misconduct is mindboggling.
The most recent example is Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon’s remarks to the Security Council Thursday.
Responding to a report by U.N. Special Envoy on Children in Armed Conflict Leila Zerrougui, Ban mentioned children in Syria, Iraq, South Sudan, Nigeria and the Central African Republic, calling 2014 “one of the worst in recent memory for children in countries afflicted by conflict.”
While offering no further advice to those nations, Ban called on Israel to review its “existing policies and practices,” saying he was “deeply alarmed at the suffering of so many children as a result [emphasis added] of Israeli military operations in Gaza last summer.”
“I urge Israel to take concrete and immediate steps, including by reviewing existing policies and practices, to protect and prevent the killing and maiming of children, and to respect the special protections afforded to schools and hospitals,” the secretary-general advised.
Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu called it the height of hypocrisy.
“This is a black day for the U.N.,” Netanyahu said. “Instead of highlighting the fact that Hamas made hostages of Gaza’s children when it fired at Israel from preschools and dug tunnels toward Israeli preschools, the U.N. has again chosen to reproach Israel.”
“At the same time the Hamas terror organization is awarded immunity by the U.N., even though it has been proven beyond any doubt that it committed war crimes by firing from hospitals, mosques and from within U.N. facilities,” he said. “It turns out there is no limit to hypocrisy.”
Deputy Foreign Minister Tzipi Hotovely called the report “outrageous.”
“The biased and one-sided approach of the U.N. regarding IDF activities in [Operation] Protective Edge is outrageous,” Hotovely said.
Based on past performance, it seems unlikely the U.N.’s anti-Israel bias will change anytime soon.
