United Nations

Israel Stands Alone Of the 190 countries in the United Nations only one, Israel, has been singled out by a majority of the U.N. membership for extinction.  

UN Resolution 181

UN Resolution 242

UN Human Rights Commission Arab, Muslim and Communist Bloc in charge of Human Rights    
The United Nation is having a difficult time living up to its charter, which pledges to "save succeeding generations from the scourge of war…to practice tolerance and live together in peace as good neighbors, to unite our strength to maintain international peace and security." The proliferation of terror, war and famine is of secondary importance to this mob of third world tyrants who have made passing resolutions against Israel and undermining United States foreign policy their highest priority.

The most repugnant of these anti-Semitic resolutions came in November 1975, when the U.N. ruled that Zionism was a" form of racism." Curious, that just a few years later these "racist" Zionists transported 51,000 Ethiopians in danger of being wiped out by massacre and man-made starvation to Israel. In December 1991, the General Assembly voted 111-25 to repeal this venomous attack. No Arab country voted to repeal the resolution. It was a bittersweet victory because on that same day, the UN voted 152-1, with the U.S. abstaining, to call on Israel to rescind a resolution declaring Jerusalem its capital. Fortunately, U.N. resolutions cannot erase 3,000 years of history.

Prior to the Madrid Conference in 1991, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Shamir commissioned an analysis of U.N. voting towards Israel. The results are not surprising. From 1967 to 1988 the security passed 88 resolutions directly against Israel, zero resolutions criticized or opposed the actions or perceived interests of an Arab state or body, including the PLO. During that span, Israel was "condemned" 49 times, Arab countries not once. In the General Assembly, 429 anti-Israel resolutions were passed in that span. Israel was "condemned" 321 times. Arab nations? Not once.

After Delegates to the United Nation's World Conference Against Racism, Racial Discrimination, Xenophobia, and Related Intolerance in Durban, South Africa finally settled on their bizarre name, they swiftly voted to brand Israel a "racist apartheid state" guilty of "systematic war crimes, acts of genocide, and ethnic cleansing."

This, a few days before 19 Arab terrorists attacked the U.S. on September 11.
