In a National Review article of July 2, 2016, Josh Gelernter writes: “The U.K. has shown its contempt for anti-democratic international unions by leaving the EU. Let’s do the same and leave the U.N.” I second the motion, having proposed the idea eight years ago in my “Eidelberg Report” on Israel National Radio of September 7, 2008, “To Hell with the United Nations!”
United Nations v. Israel
Are you sickened by seeing the arrogant face of Barack Obama, a man who can hardly order dinner without a teleprompter? Are you fed up with the United Nations and its using Israel as a whipping boy? Do you wonder why Israel does not quit this den of iniquity? Do you wonder how the democratic world can tolerate the Islamo-Fascist world assembly, known for being the most pernicious, malevolent, and corrupt organization on the face of the earth?
Would you like to see Israel make the UN an object of contempt and ridicule? Let’s start right here with a dose of facts and call on others to “pile it on” non-stop.
For decades, the United Nations has passed countless resolutions condemning Israel for its actions against the “Palestinians,” while ignoring the countless terrorist of the invented people, the Palestinians. But if the Palestinian people are a hoax, may this not also be said the misnamed “united” nations, most of whose members are dictatorships and whose General Assembly is based on the absurd principle one-nation-vote regardless of the political character of these nations? Isn’t the UN based on the irrational and unjust principle of moral equivalence?
The UN General Assembly has become an international forum for encouraging terrorism, where the Palestinian Authority feels at home even though it uses children as human bombs. Meanwhile, the UN condemns the one nation that holds the world record for being the victim of terrorism – Israel. Indeed. The General Assembly has either “condemned” or “deplored” or “censured” or “denounced” Israel hundreds of times. Not once has the UN denounced the Muslim barbarians!
What difference does the UN make?
Respectable observers have said that Israel should cease demeaning itself and vacate this international cesspool. Having a forum at the UN is of dubious value, as is the UN itself. John Bolton, former U.S. Ambassador to the UN, has said “There is no such thing as the United Nations. There is only the international community, which can only be led by the only remaining superpower, which is the United States.” He also said “The Secretariat Building in New York has 38 stories. If [it] lost ten stories today, it wouldn’t make a bit of difference.”
Fred Fleitz, a former senior adviser to Bolton, exposes UN waste and corruption and the resulting human costs. His book, Peacekeeping Fiascoes of the 1990s provides a comprehensive critical assessment of the UN. Among other debacles, he shows how the failed UN mission in Bosnia led to unmitigated atrocities; how the UN debacle in Somalia emboldened terrorists the world over; how the UN peacekeeping operation in Haiti collapsed, with the billions of dollars squandered on it primarily benefiting Haitian President Jean-Bertrande Aristide. And then there is Iraq and the “oil for food” scam between the UN and Saddam Hussein.
The Iran arms deal
Turning to Iran, it’s obvious the UN will do nothing, and can do nothing, to stop Iran’s nuclear weapons program. And judging from the Obama Administration’s policy of appeasing Islam, Iran is close to being a nuclear power.…
For Israel, a nuclear-armed Iran is an existential issue that raises the specter of another holocaust. Israel must take its future into its own hands; it must act unilaterally and choose the moment to attack Iran – as Bolton urged in the Wall Street Journal on December 7, 2007.
Let us take a closer look at what a nuclear-armed Iran portends not only for Israel, but for Europe and the United States – indeed, for Western civilization. Here, let us consult Robert Baer, a most farseeing and experienced former CIA operative in the Middle East. In his book The Devil We Know (2008), Baer convincingly argues that, contrary to what most believe, Iran is not a regime of crazies. Its Supreme Leader, Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, head of the Revolutionary Guard, is pursuing a political strategy whose goal is to restore the Persian Empire. Iran’s nuclear weapons program must be viewed in these terms.
Ahmadinejad was serious
The maledictions of former Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, “Death to America” and “Death to Israel,” should not be dismissed as the ranting of a maniac. It is a double entendre. It prompts the naïve to trivialize, hence obscure, Iran’s Machiavellian modus operandi. For the cognoscenti, “Death to America” and “Death the Israel” signify the demise of Christianity and Judaism and the global ascendancy of Islam. Let us take a closer look at the location of Iran, a nation of 70 million people, 90 percent of whom are Shiites, 51 percent Persian, and, on the whole, better educated than most Muslims.
Iran’s strategic location on the Persian Gulf will enable its Revolutionary Guard to turn off the flow of oil on which the West’s survival depends. Moreover, Iran is rapidly developing a worldwide network of power. Iraq, which is about 60 percent Shiite, is succumbing to Tehran. Iran is luring Turkey into its orbit, as it did Syria. Iran’s proxy Hezbollah is positioned to control Lebanon. Iran is the main supplier of Hamas [the Palestinian wing of the Muslim Brotherhood], and it has eyes on the Sinai where it would threaten Egypt.
Apparently, Iran has already penetrated the Suez Canal. Iran has sleeper cells throughout Europe, and even in America. Iran is collaborating with anti-American forces in South America. And of course Iran supports countless mosques in the United States that preach jihad against America and the West. If this were not enough, hundreds of millions of Muslims throughout the world support Jihad.
If Iran’s long-range ballistic missiles are tipped with nuclear warheads, Europe, already inundated with more than 50 million Muslims, will be blackmailed into submission. Without Europe and its economy, the American economy will collapse beyond repair. Iran knows this. The U.S. is necessarily Iran’s primary target, but Israel, the “Small Satan,” comes first. Perhaps Iran will not need to devastate America by exploding an Electro-Magnetic Pulse over Washington to terminate the “Great Satan.”
A new United Nations?
Viewed in this light, the United Nations is passé and good riddance. If a new UN is desirable, it should consist solely of the ninety or so states classified as democracies … in which the state is merely the custodian of man’s God-given rights to Life, Liberty, and pursuit of Happiness.
If any country, from both a historical and theological perspective, is qualified to promote the formation of such a United Nations, it is Israel – of course, not the Israel that kowtows to terrorist thugs. I mean an Israel on the way to constructing the Third Temple, when Jerusalem will stand majestically as in the days of King Solomon, attracting nations near and far. Let your heart and soul recall with me the prophecy of Zechariah when
ten men of every nationality, speaking different languages, shall take hold of every Jew by the corner of his garment and say, “Let us go with you, for we have heard that God is with you.”
For peace and truth to unite and prevail, Israel must first triumph over her enemies – today led by Satanic Iran. Today Israel is waiting for the moment. She knows that the mullahs of Iran are driven by the memory of the Persian Empire. She knows that a nuclear armed Iran in control of the Persian Gulf would ensure Iran’s hegemony over the Middle East and beyond. Israel also knows that she will be the first target; for if Iran controls Jerusalem and the Temple Mount, a billion Muslims will exult in victory, will explode in frenzy and wreak havoc on the world, screaming Allah Akbar!
So Israel must strike first. This would mark the beginning of a new Middle East, one that hardly anyone dreams of. While Iran devastated, the Israel Defense Forces will crush Hezbollah and Hamas. Israel will eliminate the entire terrorist network west of the Jordan River. Countless Arabs will flee from Judea and Samaria as well as from Gaza, as they did after the Six-Day War.
The cruel and cynical peace charade will be over, as will the mendacity of Lilliputian politicians. The Lion of Judah will have triumphed. During the aftermath of perhaps two decades, Israel will help organize peace in the region in cooperation with Muslim reformers inspired by Egyptian President Abdel el-Sisi. The United States will cooperate, but petrodollars will no longer lubricate its diplomacy.
The ethos of jihad will cease to torment mankind, and the people of the Middle East, with the cooperation of a God-inspired Israel, will gain a new birth of freedom.
