News and views on Israel, Zionism and the war on terrorism.

U.N. Joke by Gary Bauer, Christian Evangelical leader.

The United Nations Security Council, with the U.S. abstaining, has just passed a resolution demanding that Israel end its "siege" of Yasser Arafat's compound. This is the same Security Council that is resisting President Bush's call for a strong resolution on arms inspections in Iraq. This is the same body that looks the other way while Mugabe in Zimbabwe is encouraging mobs to attack white farmers (hate crimes?) and is attempting to create a famine to starve his black opponents. This is the same Security Council that sits silently as the thugs in Beijing threaten the free people of Taiwan. This is the same Security Council that has failed to act on the genocide in Sudan. But the U.N. can always find the time to pass another resolution condemning Israel and bailing out the leading patron of Middle East terrorism, Yasser Arafat.

This is why none of us, least of all the President, should worry for one second about U.N. permission or cooperation in doing what must be done to protect our people and our country. The U.N. does not have a higher moral calling - it is merely a collection of other countries all with their own self-interests and many of them run by dictators, unelected "kings," tyrants and America-haters.
