Posted on 06/20/2015 7:30:14 AM PDT by Olog-hai
The UNs condemnation of the IDFs conduct in Operation Protective Edge surprises no one, Jewish Home chairman and Education Minister Naftali Bennett commented Friday.
The UN has never been honest, he said, during an interview with Army Radio. The world will always come to us with complaints, and we need to focus on keeping ourselves safe.

Israel and the US would do well to not care what the world thinks of us.
They can hate us, as long as our enemies fear us.
And who cares what Western Europe thinks. They’re too busy giving away their sovereignty to Muslims.
Get the U.S. OUT of the U.N. and the U.N.OUT of the U.S.
WHAT has the U.N. ever done for America?
How do you account for the fact that the United Nations Charter follows the format of the Russian (USSR) Constitution of 1936 rather than the format of the (Covenant of the) League of Nations? Would you feel there was any significance in the fact that the general secretary for the organization which drew up the charter was Alger Hiss?Letting the UN stand plays into the hands of the globalists, whether the USA is in it or not.
The Naked Communist, Chapter 8
Without the US, the UN would soon crumble. They couldn’t exist without our dollars and our military.
I think a good way to temper the UN would be to propose to the Chinese and the Russians that they each build their own UN headquarters buildings, in Beijing and Moscow respectively, and that the UN should rotate among each for 10 years. Then when it is coming up for our rotation, we suggest other “world capitals” also build UN buildings.
Like in the slums of Rio; Harare, Zimbabwe; Mogadishu, Somalia; and Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.
Why increase the UN’s power? That won’t temper it. It needs to be destroyed.
No. The “rest of the world” would be just fine with taking over its funding if the US ran away from it. It ought not stand, and it certainly cannot be allowed to become an unwieldy enemy entity in the hands of othersbad enough it is an unwieldy enemy entity as it is.
Disagree. The “rest of the world” won’t pay their way now. Our own “Best” neighbor(sarc.) Canada, lived under the protection of our Bomber Wing throughout the entirety of the Cold War and never spent one bloody dollar to help with the costs of their protection.
The UN is so corrupt, it will become fondue when they can’t push America around and live off our generosity. Follow the Bucks. Why wasn’t the corruption of the former U.N. boss prosecuted? Why won’t the continued corruption be prosecuted? The world no longer cares about right and wrong, it only cares about getting the bucks to redistribute into their own pockets.
They certainly will and would pay. The only reason they do not right now is because they are just fine with the USA bleeding out into the UN’s coffers.
Well we’ll see, won’t we. According to you we have no choice. We have to stay in to protect our interests and continue to be bled dry. I would discontinue ALL aid to ALL nations and pull out of the U.N. Let them have it. It wouldn’t be long before others pulled out, i guarantee you.
It used to be the worlds largest extortion agency, but the Clinton Foundation has overtaken them.
That’s not what I said. I said the UN needs to be destroyed. You disagree?
Of course the UN has to be destroyed. We differ in the way to go about it. I contend that the greed of the UNELECTED so called diplomats will have nowhere to turn when the U.S.A. is not there to be milked. It will founder from its own weight of greed. No other nation or nations will pick up the slack after a enjoying free ride throughout the U.N.’s existence at the expense of the U.S.
What is YOUR solution?
A lot of Israelis, perhaps a majority, believe that the state was created by the UN, and exists (and has their precious “right to exist”) by the leave of the UN.
This is why they are bleating all the time about “Resolution 181, Resolution 242” as if the pretend enactments of Chinamen, Turks, and Hottentots at the sewer by Turtle Bay had actual meaning.
Israel holds title to the land from God, or not at all. Israel’s right to exist comes from the Kfir, the Merkava, and Galil, and their willingness to kill disputants until there are no more to kill, or Israel has no right to exist.
That “the UN has never been honest” is the understatement of the millennium.
I have to disagree that no other rising power would pick up the slack. They would take it over and possibly change the name, is all. They are fine with the USA bleeding to death into the UN, and will not “step up” as long as the USA is doing thatafter all, it is the work of the useful-idiot liberal fifth column in DC and it does not serve their interests to interfere.
You STILL have not given a solution. You say it must be destroyed but insist US leaving is not the answer. So WHAT is the answer to destroying the U.N. in YOUR opinion?
You think there’s no way to destroy or distestablish it? Seizing all of its assets and declaring the charter null and void is a good start. Follow up with an information campaign exposing all of its criminal and warlike acts.
The Criminal and Warlike Acts have been exposed for years. A lot of good it did! Where have you been? When you destroy a building, you take out th support column or columns. If the big one went, (America), how long do you think the others would hold the weight?
That’s because the useful-idiot Uniparty is not engaging in destroying the UN.
And note what I first suggested to do.
The complicit liberal media gives the UN’s criminal actions very little coverage. We might hear from time to time about the child rapists in northern Africa, but nothing from them about what the UNRWA gets up to.
