THE U.N.’s SCAPEGOAT SYNDROME

UNFresh news substantiates my earlier essay on the U.N.’s flagrant and obsessive bias towards the State of Israel. This time, to continue the trend of relentless Israel bashing, a report was written by Navi Pillay, the new High Commissioner for Human Rights and substitute of Marie Robinson, equally, a vicious anti-Israel promoter. As you may know, the U.N. Human Rights Council is controlled by Arabs and their allies and is apparently given free reign by the U.N. Chief, Ban Ki-moon to perpetuate vilification and isolation of Israel, a sovereign and democratic country. Furthermore, Israel is the only country in the world that is not eligible to sit on the Security Council. This situation violates the principle of the “sovereign equality of all member states” of the U.N. under Article 2 of the U.N. Charter. This new Human Rights’ report accuses Israel of “grave violations of human rights in the Occupied Palestinian territories, particularly due to the recent Israeli military attacks against the occupied Gaza Strip.”

I beg to analyze this so-called utterly institutionalized bias and deliberate “Human Rights” claim. When you realize that Syria can be a member of the Security Council and when the U.N. Commissioner can be appointed by Lybia’s Ghaddafi, you may question whether this U.N. body is indeed exercising honorable and impartial edicts. The word “occupation” is mentioned twice in just two liners. The first one accuses Israel of human rights abuses in the “Occupied” Palestinian territories. The U.N. deliberately ignores the fact that Judea and Samaria, now substituted by the term “West Bank” was under the cruel and unauthorized control of Jordan, not a sovereign Palestinian entity. In addition, this organization is actually using double standards by conferring legitimacy to despots and terrorists and deliberately ignoring Israel’s inherent right to security and self-defense.  Moreover, the word “occupation” is illicit since the U.N.’s Security Council 242 was never promised to a State of Palestine, since it never existed. And, how can the Arab leadership now claim that Israel should conform to UN 194, 242, and/or 338, when the Arabs then rejected these resolutions and expressed their rejection in war and terrorism? The second mention of “occupation” by the U.N. Commissioner refers to the military attacks against the “occupied” Gaza Strip. The U.N. premeditatedly ignores the 2005 unilateral disengagement from Gaza, an area which has become an enclave of terrorism, Hamastan, whose goal is to annihilate the Jewish State.

To add salt to the wound, the U.N. High Commissioner, accuses Israel of harming unarmed civilians through the blockade of Gaza and of the illegality of the security barrier, inevitable deterrents that have successfully reduced the spate of terrorist attacks against innocent Israeli civilians by over 98%. This report unapologetically and blatantly violates Israel’s inherent rights to defend its citizens against terrorists who are plentiful and waiting to strike from both Fatah’ and Gaza’s terrorist infrastructures.

This writer, and I imagine that those who care for justice and unbiased resolutions among all nations, wonders whether the U.N. is an impartial peace-keeping institution whose legacy is designed to resolve conflicts, or is it a racist, prejudicial and politically opportunistic vehicle whose aim is to isolate and undermine Israel, a member state, just because the majority of its members belong to Arab and third world or ex-communist countries who use oil as a weapon and dictate the international arena?

We need to proclaim loud and clear that the U.N. Commission denies Israel due process and equality under the law. This flagrant and overt bias against Israel affects all citizens of the world since it is a violation of the quality principles guaranteed by the UN charter and cripples the functioning of the UN Commission on Human Rights. For this reason, the U.N. as a whole lacks credibility and integrity and warrants an urgent overhaul before claiming to profess “to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights.”
