Israel Still in 1st Place as Scapegoat of World-UN: 6 out of 10 Resolutions Against Her

Nadene Goldfoot                                                                      

Usually Israel gets 10 condemnations but this year, only 6, which is way too much when you look at what's going on in other places on this planet. However, they must be making progress.   Of course, it's mostly all up to Ban Ki-moon, South Korean and  Secretary General of the UN,  as to how the UN doles these out. Ban Ki-moon will be head until December 31, 1916.  He's on his 2nd term in this position.   To understand why Israel is singled out and a thorn in the UN's side, you must look at the makeup of the UN groups who decide such things.  The vote went something like this:
110 Yes
   7 NO (Australia, Canada, Micronesia, Israel, Marshal Islands, Palau, United States)
 59 abstentions

The UN General Assembly voted against Israel with 6 resolutions.  They had their usual show of contempt and bias that they use to judge Israel.  I feel silly using the term with the UN, but what they do is showing the ultimate anti-Semitism/anti-Israel against Israel.  Knowing the facts involved, I cannot come to any other conclusion; that and stupidity.

Everything centers around the 1967 War.  This is when Egypt, Jordan, Syria, Lebanon, along with Iraq, Algeria, Kuwait, Sudan and the whole Arab nations  attacked Israel and Israel not only won but got back the places that were to belong to her according to the Balfour Doctrine of which the whole League of Nations had signed naming this all as the Jewish National Home.  It was Jordan who helped herself to the sites of Judea and Samaria, East Jerusalem and Syria had the Golan Heights from where they bombed Israel.   Note how slimy the wording is about how the Palestinians are injured by the reclaiming of this land by Israel which has harmed them.

You must then forget that those in Gaza, called the Hamas terrorists, haven't stopped attacking Israel with mortars, rockets and missiles.  You must forget that Fatah in Judea and Samaria  are also the new PLO terrorists who are just slightly better than Hamas is, but who have supplied many a suicide bomber and such to harm Israel, causing the wall to have to be built.

Then you must remember that the Palestinians are being used as pawns to try to win back land that they couldn't by war, so they're using this type of scheming; Jewish land, land of our fathers in our history, Jerusalem, built by King David, a Jewish King.

You also must remember that by international law the places spoken of have law on Israel's side; that Israel has rights to it  both old and new by any law.

You must remember that there never was a country of Palestine.  The Palestinians are what Americans would call poachers.  They came in from surrounding territories to find work in the first place.  They didn't even think of wanting this land.  It was the Arab leaders who thought this one up and sold them on the idea.

The 4 resolutions not on Israel are on Syria, Iran, North Korea and Myanmar.  Each of those were only worthy of one condemnation each.  Note that Syria has murdered at least 120,000 of its own people and was using chemical warfare on the last group when Russia finally had to intercede and stop Assad.  So what sins has Israel committed that can top that, pray tell?

We also see that abuses committed by China, Cuba, Egypt, Pakistan, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Zimbabwe pale in comparison to the 4 ranking countries and definitely to Israel. They never were mentioned but we know have committed insults and injury  to the very idea of Human Rights.

  Wanting a nuclear-weapon-free world-risk of nuclear proliferation in the Middle East

    India, Israel and Pakistan are to sign promptly and without conditions and to place all their nuclear facilities under International Energy Agency safeguards.  Israel's accession to the Treaty is wanted and so they are singling out Israel with a vote of 165 Yes, 7 No, 5 abstain.; and again 153 Yes, 5 NO, 9 abstain.

 Whether or not Israel has nuclear capabilities is not known, but the illusion is that they do.  Only this thought is keeping Arab nations at bay.  Israel is a teeny country that has lost 80% of her promised land to Arabs right off the bat, made up of only 7.7 million; 6 million Jews and 1.7 million Arabs and a few Christians against the 2nd largest religion  made up of Arabs  that run into the billions.  Israel's closest neighbor, of which has had a peace pact signed by Sadat, has about 91 million in their country.  Syria has about 23 million, Jordan about 6 million, Lebanon has over 4 million, and these are the closest ones.

Other points brought up in the committees that condemn Israel.  

 Permanent sovereignty of the Palestinian people in the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, and the Arab population in the occupied Syrian Golan over their natural  resources.
    Accusing Israel of exploitation  of the natural resources of the Occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem and other Arab territories occupied by Israel since 1967.  Vote of 162 Yes, 5 No, 9 Abstain.

 Israeli Air force destroying oil storage tanks in Lebanese Jiyeh electric power plant.
  (Did Israel bomb missiles meant to hit Israel and get the tanks in the act?  How insane to store missiles by oil tanks)  (They didn't mention that the Palestinians never pay for their electric bill and are constantly in arrears.).  

 The right of the Palestinian people to self-determination-so the wall constructed by Israel, the occupying power, in the occupied Palestinian Territory, including East Jerusalem, along with measures previously taken, severely impedes the right of the Palestinian people to self determination.
(Never mind why the wall was necessary in that terrorists would enter into Israel and murder civilians and this was the only thing they could do to impede these results of death to Israelis).

 Assistance to Palestinian refugees, concern for them under occupation, including with regard to their safety, well-being and socioeconomic living conditions, displaced as a result of June 1967, and subsequent hostilities to return to their homes or former places of residence in their territories occupied by Israel since 1967.  Refugee camps in Gaza Strip as a result of continuing prolonged Israeli closures...and socioeconomic conditions in there.... rights about the Palestinian properties and their revenues in thinking of equity and justice, that policies and practices of Israel that violate human rights of the Palestinian people and other Arabs of the occupied territories, demands that Israel accept the Geneva Convention in Occupied Palestinian Territory including East Jerusalem, etc. occupied since 1967, that Israeli settlements and in the Golan are illegal and an obstacle to peace and economic and social development; violation of human rights, that Israel has imposed its laws, jurisdiction and administration on the Golan and demand that Israel rescind forthwith its decision. ..... women and children affected by living in occupied territory.  ...

( I don't know whether to laugh or to cry at this unbelievable accusation of the attackers of all the counties involved attacking  Israel in 1967 including the Palestinians.) It's the murderers suing the murder victim for causing them to have to get lawyers and pay for court expense and for losing their jobs because they tried to murder.  Looking at the UN's decisions, I've decided that crime certainly does pay.  They are like the children who murdered their parents and then cry because now they are orphans.  )

 UN is proclaiming 2014 the International Year or Solidarity with the Palestinian People; raising international awareness,  (Now isn't this going to be a fun year!)

Reiterates its determination that any actions taken by Israel to impose its laws, jurisdiction and administration on "the Holy City of Jerusalem are illegal and therefore null and void and have no validity whatsoever, and calls upon Israel to immediately cease all such illegal and unilateral measures.  (Do they remember that Jerusalem is the Jewish Holy City and that we  share it with all the religions under Israel's governorship?) (Do they realize that Jerusalem is now one united city doing very well and will not be divided again? or would South Korea like to give some more land back to North Korea?  How about dividing Washington DC and giving half to China., or of course-we could get California and Arizona to be given back to Mexico.  They'd like that.)  No, Israel has rights to East Jerusalem.  The whole city is what we have prayed for 2,000 years to return to.  We lost it in 70 CE to the Romans and never again shall we allow one iota to be under another's hand again.)  I don't care how much the Palestinians covet what isn't theirs in the first place.  Get over it!

   They want the Golan to be given back to Syria.  (Of course, they are thwarted in bombing Israel  from there now).

"UN chief Ban Ki-moon has rejected the criticism by a UN interpreter caught on an open microphone, saying through a spokesman that he “respects the right of [UN] member states” to adopt resolutions against Israel, which “need to be upheld by all countries.” But given that Ban himself has firmly criticized the singling out of Israel by UN bodies such as the Human Rights Council.   UN Watch expressed disappointment at the secretary-general's failure to support the UN interpreter’s virtually identical, candid and entirely correct observations."  The interpreter was heard to say accidentally that wasn't 6 a little too much for one country such as Israel?  

The United States delegate was the only one to speak up for Israel.  "Speaking after the votes, the representative of United States said that his country remained deeply troubled by the repetitive and disproportionate number of one-sided Assembly resolutions condemning Israel.  Only four other resolutions had been critical of other Member States.  All parties to the tragic conflict had a responsibility for ending it, and the United States was disappointed that the Assembly continued to single out Israel.  The United States urged a halt to one-sided actions that would disrupt or distract from the process.  Continued support for biased resolutions complicated efforts to reach a just and lasting peace.  Furthermore, the systematic bias and distortion of the conflict conveyed by the resolutions damaged United Nations’ credibility."

A Miracle of Chanukah?

Israel has been accepted to join the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC), Maariv reported Thursday. The international body infamous for condemning the Jewish state will now add it to the list of 9 Western states.

The move is a complete about-face for the UNHRC, which in its 5-year history has condemned Israel over 46 times - more than any other nation in the world.
