As reported by www.EyeontheUN.org, Miguel d’Escoto Brockmann of Nicaragua, the current UN General Assembly President, used his position on November 24 to attack Israel. He accused the Jewish state of apartheid and called for a campaign of boycott, divestment and sanctions. Brockmann also said that Israel is crucifying his Palestinian “brothers and sisters.” The occasion? The annual UN Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People.
As I wrote only yesterday, the UN has outlived its usefulness.
Now, for the record, I wish to go a step further. The UN does more harm than good, and every day that it stays open for business is a stain on humanity’s already-compromised reputation. The sooner President Obama sends the UN packing, the better for us.
I wonder if he has any idea how wildly popular that would make him? Just a thought…
