A United Nations investigator probing discrimination against Native Americans has called on the US government to return some of the land stolen from Indian tribes as a step toward combatting continuing and systemic racial discrimination.
James Anaya, the UN special rapporteur on the rights of indigenous peoples, said no member of the US Congress would meet him as he investigated the part played by the government in the considerable difficulties faced by Indian tribes.
Anaya said that in nearly two weeks of visiting Indian reservations, indigenous communities in Alaska and Hawaii, and Native Americans now living in cities, he encountered people who suffered a history of dispossession of their lands and resources, the breakdown of their societies and "numerous instances of outright brutality, all grounded on racial discrimination".

Reminds me of the t-shirt I spotted years ago depicting Luke and Obi-wan Kenobi looking down on the U.N building (instead of Mos Eisley) saying that almost verbatim.
I believe that Islam is written about in Revelations as the religion of Lucifer.
Ahhhh! The old “sacred” casino land!
On a drunken Friday night, somebody needs to paint a huge bullseye on that piece of crap building.
Someone needs to tell the idiots in brussels that the neandertals called and THEY want their land back.
And since they call people who believe in personal liberty and conservatism neandertals we want our land back :)
Yah, Manhattan. That’s a very good idea. THEN they can fornicate themselves.
Sounds like a good idea, who gets Manhattan? Not enough? O.K., toss in Florida and call it even. Now we can think the little things of life....say the state of the economy?
First we take Manhattan, then we take Berlin.
The League of Nations should be ordered forthwith to return that prime Manhattan real estate to the United States.
They can darn well go find some other place to whine.
On their own dime.
The OIC’s UN. What they need to do is ...out of equity.... return all the mideast lands to the Christians and Jews that their leader Mohammed stole, throughout the mid east , Mediterranean and north Africa in the name of “ islam’,
or how about repatriate every dollar the west has given that worthless oic organization since BOT?
Flipping criminals.... consistent with that Barry O.
FUBO and FUUN
***to return some of the land stolen from Indian tribes***
I might consider it AFTER the Normans disengage from England and France, and the muzzies give back ALL the land they stole in the last 1500 years!
Also, Blacks must give back ALL THE LAND stolen from Whites in South Africa as Blacks had not migrated that far south when the Dutch settled there.
And in a related story, the UN also said that Muslims should return the Mid East & Turkey to the Christians and Jews, Indonesia to indigenous animists and 95% of their petro dollars to motorists around the world....
(well, it might happen....maybe....maybe not?)
***The old rebel cry...”Get the UN out of the US and then get the US out of the UN.”.. ***
And on the other side of the billboard was....IMPEACH EARL WARREN!
I wish somebody would blow up that place.
There was a time when your statement would be correct. Sorry to say that time has passed.
Turn that land over to them if they promise to evict the present tenants of the building.
Unless his name is obama.
Oh, yeah, that. I got him mixed up w the guy that suggested Manhattan itself.
