Hero, Israel, Jew-Hatred, UN

Remember when Obama’s Ambassador to the UN, Samantha Power, stood up for Israel? Yeah, neither to I. But I do remember her ignoring the deaths of thousands of innocent Syrians, and kicking Israel in the teeth. Brava to Nikki Haley for standing up for the truth… and walking out when the anti-Israel haters began spewing their lies. And shame on the MSM for their anti-Israel biased reporting, which served to score Hamas a big propaganda “win.” Via Daily Caller. US Ambassador to the United Nations Nikki Haley had a simple response Tuesday when Palestine’s Ambassador to the UN blamed Israel for the recent violence in Gaza. Walk out. Haley stood up and walked out of the UN Security Council meeting...

After suffering through eight years of the Obama regime, with the wretched Samantha Power as our ambassador to the U.N., what a joy to have Nikki Haley at the helm. Amb. Haley spoke yesterday at AIPAC ( American Israel Public Affairs Committee) and she was treated like a rockstar. The Obama administration enables anti-Semitism at the United Nations Ignoring Aleppo, Obama, Ambassador Power target Israel Anti-Israel statement from 2002 may haunt Power’s UN envoy bid

Pakistan has approved a law cracking down on online ‘blasphemy’ content, so that anything deemed offensive to Islam on social media could be punishable by death. The fact that Pakistan is now headed to sit on the U.N. Human Rights Council is a cruel ‘joke.’ And, as Tammy points out in today’s Washington Times column, it’s time to defund the U.N. Tammy Bruce: Rape, sex trafficking and the spread of disease on the U.N.’s watch Via CNS News. Days before it takes up a seat on the U.N. Human Rights Council – for its fourth term in the council’s 11-year history – Pakistan’s federal cabinet has approved a legal amendment designed to facilitate an ongoing crackdown on “blasphemy” on social...

We pay for that dump to continue operating, it’s time we stop. We can use that money to pay for the border wall, and removing them from NY means we will gain some prime NY real estate. I think NY could use some affordable housing or even another park. Either will improve lives more than what that collection of malcontents does. Historically, the UN has made things worse in the world. Just ask Rwanda and Haiti.

The scourge if the UN just got schooled by Nikki Haley on how, no, the UN is not the boss of us. Via Washington Times. The United States stood against the 14 other U.N. Security Council member nations on Monday by vetoing a resolution that called on the Trump administration to rescind its recognition of Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. In a show of the widespread international frustration toward the administration’s recent moves on Israel, even U.S. allies Britain and France supported Monday’s resolution, which expressed “deep regret at recent decisions concerning the status of Jerusalem.” While the resolution, drafted by Egypt, did not mention the United States or Mr. Trump by name, it was clear to all involved...

Mosab Hassan Yousef is a son of a founder of the Islamist terror movement Hamas, and a convert to Christianity. Bravo to him for speaking the truth. But it you still take the UN seriously, consider who is on the “Human Rights” Council: Syria, Qatar, North Korea, Pakistan, Venezuela, Iran. The U.N. would do much more good in the world as a big parking lot in Manhattan. Via Free Beacon. A former member of the Hamas terror group stunned the United Nations Human Rights Council when he blasted the Palestinian Leadership Organization (PLO) during a speech to the body earlier this week. Before Mosab Hassan Yousef spoke on Sept. 25, many member states of the Human Rights Council, including the...

Venezuela is running out of food, and it is reported that 75% of population lost 19 pounds amid the crisis. Leave it to the useful idiots who praise socialism, though: They will probably report this as a wonderful step the Venezuelan government is taking to reduce obesity. But which is more laughable, that Venezuela is on the Human Rights Council, or the fact that Saudi Arabia is also a member? Via CNS News. The United Nations’ secretary-general and top human rights official on Tuesday both expressed concern about the political crisis in Venezuela, but neither statement addressed the fact that the Nicolas Maduro regime is a member of the U.N.’s top human rights body. Amid calls for the Human Rights...

This is a new low for the anti-Jewish UNESCO. According to the Bible, the patriarchs and matriarchs of the Jewish people – Abraham and Sarah, Isaac and Rebecca, Jacob and Leah- are buried in Hebron. The Arabs revere Abraham, but how does this very ancient holy Jewish site somehow become “Palestinian” ? As Benjamin Netanyahu said, in 2015, when UNESCO demanded that Israel renounce claim of their religious sites: “The attempt to detach the people of Israel from its heritage is absurd…if the places where the fathers and mothers of the Jewish nation are buried… some 4,000 years ago are not part of the Jewish heritage then what is?” And, on a personal note, my mother’s cousins emigrated from Russia...

It’s time to turn the UN building in Manhattan into a really neat parking garage, where it will finally do some good. Via Jerusalem Post. UNRWA has apologized for twice using a photo of a Palestinian child living in Syria, this time in its fund-raising campaign for Gaza. The double use of the photograph was brought to light by the Geneva- based group UN Watch, whose executive director Hillel Neuer posted both pictures on Twitter with the caption: “Left: UNRWA photo, Jan.27, 2015, of girl in Syria. Right: Same UNRWA photo, May 29, 2017, but now she’s ‘Aya from Gaza’ oppressed by Israel.” Next to the photo that it posted on social media last month, UNRWA wrote: “Imagine being cut...

Brava to Ambassador Nikki Haley, the New Sheriff in Town Via IJR. U.S. Ambassador Nikki Haley on Wednesday confronted Russia directly in an impassioned address to the United Nations following a reported chemical attack in Syria on Tuesday…. “Men, women, the elderly, and children gasping for their very last breath,” she said. “And as first responders, doctors, and nurses rushed to help the victims, a second round of bombs rained down. They died in the same slow, horrendous manner as the civilians they were trying to save.” She then stared down the Russian ambassador and said: “How many more children have to die before Russia cares?”….

I’ve taken a wait-and-see attitude about our new UN ambassador Nikki Haley, and I like this very much. So far, so good. Via RCP. Nikki Haley, US ambassador to the UN, spoke at the UN headquarters for the first time, stating to “those who don’t have our backs: We’re taking names.” “Our goal with the administration is to show value at the UN, and the way to show value is to show our strength, show our full voice. Have the backs of our allies and make sure our allies have our backs as well.”

Let’s see: The members of the 2017 Human Rights Council (Saudi Arabia, Venezuela, China, Cuba, Iraq, Qatar, Burundi, Bangladesh, United Arab Emirates) engage in amputating arms of suspected thieves, treating women as “property,” throwing gays off rooftops, beheadings, torture, “disappearances” and execution of political opponents. But Israel is constructing apartments on land that had been in Jewish hands two thousand years ago. Oh, the “horror”… HT Twitchy. Happy New Year 2017!

The fallout from the Obama administration facilitating the Jew-haters at the UN continues. Thanks goodness Netanyahu is a man who speaks his mind. And thank God he’ll have Trump with work with from now on. Background: Senate Democrats Condemn Obama for Anti-Israel UN Vote Via RCP. During his weekly cabinet meeting on Sunday, Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu gives a stinging reprimand of the anti-settlement vote at UN Security Council. He asserted that “the Western Wall isn’t occupied territory,” and said he looked forward to working with the Trump administration when they take office next month. I believe what I tweeted earlier about the obscene UN Security Council vote against Israel points out the dangerous hypocrisy and absurdity of the...

It appears that Wonder Woman is not a good role model for women and girls after all, due to her “impossible proportions.” But I wonder if Wonder Woman was axed because actress Gal Gadot is a proud citizen of Israel. Her name, btw, is pronounced “Gahl,” and means “ocean wave.” Via Telegraph. Wonder Woman’s battle for equality for women and girls at the United Nations has come to a untimely end. The scantily clad, curvaceous comic book superhero has had her appointment as a United Nations honorary ambassador cut in less than two months following protests. A United Nations spokesman said the character’s role at the 193-member state organization would end on Friday despite plans for Wonder Woman to be...

A moment of silence for the thousands of Cubans massacred by Castro’s firing squads might have been a nice touch. Via CNS News. After a minute of silence in honor of Fidel Castro, United Nations member-states on Tuesday turned to the regular General Assembly agenda item entitled “the question of Palestine,” in preparation for votes on several resolutions condemning Israel. “I’m deeply saddened by the passing of Fidel Castro,” began the president of the General Assembly, Peter Thomson of Fiji. He described the Cuban dictator as “one of the iconic leaders of the 20th century, with a great love for his homeland and the Cuban people, he dedicated his life to their welfare and development.” “A tireless advocate for equity...
