The UN: When is Enough Enough?

The United States pays about 22% of the UN’s budget, which amounted to almost than $8 billion in 2010.

Believe it or not, there’s more: the U.N. Development Programme provides U.N. funds and coordinates the delivery of aid from international donors for projects in both the PLO and Hamas-controlled areas.

The mention of the “Special Rapporteur” brings up the most recent outrage of U.N. anti-Zionism, which is the statement by said official, Richard Falk, who recently published a commentary on the terrorist attack on the Boston Marathon, containing such gems as these:

…as long as Tel Aviv [!] has the compliant ear of the American political establishment, those who wish for peace and justice in the world should not rest easy. …

Should we not all be meditating on W.H. Auden’s haunting line: “Those to whom evil is done/do evil in return”?

The American global domination project is bound to generate all kinds of resistance in the post-colonial world. In some respects, the United States has been fortunate not to experience worse blowbacks, and these may yet happen, especially if there is no disposition to rethink US relations to others in the world, starting with the Middle East. …

Now at the start of his second presidential term, it seems that Obama has given up altogether, succumbing to the Beltway ethos of Israel First.

Despite multiple strong U.S. objections to Falk, who once displayed an anti-Semitic cartoon on his website, he remains employed by the U.N.

The wasteful and immoral nature of the U.N. is beyond dispute. It is almost never successful in its intended purpose of resolving disputes or peacekeeping — in Lebanon, UN peacekeepers allowed Hizballah to rearm under their noses, in Africa they committed rapes and in Haiti introduced cholera — and its only benefits are provided by specialized non-political agencies like the World Health Organization or International Telecommunications Union, which could be spun off as independent organizations.

The United States pays about 22% of the U.N.’s budget, which contribution amounted to almost than $8 billion in 2010. Some of this went to specialized agencies, but most paid for the U.N.’s bloated —and drunken — bureaucracy and worthless or anti-U.S. and anti-Israel political activity.

Time to end it. If the U.S. stopped paying for it, the U.N. would collapse of its own weight, and very, very good riddance it would be.

  1. Thank you for reminding us about the wickedness of Israel, how it ignores international law and countinues to opress Palestinians.

    Btw, Israeli President Peres thinks quite good of Abbas, even considers him a partner for peace:
