Last year, when Syrian President Bashar Assad was putting the finishing touches on a massacre of his own people, the UN was busy passing a Syrian-drafted motion condemning, guess who, Israel for “repressive measures” against Syrians living on the Golan Heights.

Are you freaking kidding me?

As Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch, said at the time, “It’s obscene.”

In 2016, the UN passed a total of 20 anti-Israel resolutions, Neuer pointed out, with not one against “gross human rights abusers such as Saudi Arabia, Turkey, Venezuela, China or Cuba.”

In fact, the UN General Assembly last year passed only six resolutions on the rest of the planet combined.

The consistent anti-Israel actions of the UN, however grotesque, aren’t the half of it.

Remember Rwanda, where Canadian Major-General Romeo Dallaire, as he then was, and his tiny, ill-equipped and mostly ill-prepared band of peacekeepers — 10 of whom were slaughtered along with 800,000 Rwandans, most of them Tutsis and about a third of them children — became the ghastly symbol of all that is terribly wrong with the UN.
