Cut U.S. Funding To The UN

Freund-Michael

It’s time American Jews speak out loudly against this discriminatory stance, particularly since this is an election year in the U.S.

After all, the United States contributes half a billion dollars each year toward the UN’s budget, which represents a quarter of the organization’s total.

Through its impeccable record of mistreating Israel, America’s closest ally in the Middle East, the UN long ago made a mockery of the principles it claims to champion.

There is no reason why the American taxpayer needs to continue funding this campaign of demonization.

So in the months ahead, as your senators and congressmen seek to elicit your support, utilize the opportunity to drive home a simple message: in a time of austerity, cutting U.S. funding to the UN would not only be fiscally prudent but also morally and diplomatically warranted.

Michael Freund is chairman of Shavei Israel (www.shavei.org), which assists lost tribes and hidden Jewish communities to return to the Jewish people.

    What you expect the UN is controlled by the sub human Muzzie hordes..Time to blow up the monstrosity on the temple mount, and deport them all to Arab lands…

  2. Larissa Scott says:

    We should have NO business with these monsters.

  3. I understand that the UN have established a special committee on UNESCO to investigate the claim that Moses parted the Red Sea. The budget is $400m and is to be administered by Kofi Annan.

  4. Heather Dow says:

    Dismantle the UN completely. it mainly consists of Arabs/Muslims or communists (China and their buddies the Russians) or those that agree with these people.

  5. not surprised they are going after the Vatican it is also a seat of power. and it has been forecasted that the vatican will be destroyed and that all nation will come against Isreal, but the lord God Himself will fight for Israel. As it is His chosen nation.

  6. Yes, the Jew-hating, Israel-blaming crowd is in a tizzy over what has been going on in the Middle East. Imagine, Murder, mayhem and slaughter going on…and not one single Jew to pin it on.

    What's most surprising to me is that the pro-Israel writers/bloggers/reporters have not really made a big commotion about this. They are just sort of sitting back and hoping that people will discover for themselves how all of the killing has had absolutely nothing to do with Israel's existence, or its right to exist.

    This is why Israel and the Jews are continuous losers in the public relations war.

Police play down Arab terrorism as mere “violence” until the truth can no longer be hidden.

Obama obtained NO verifiable commitments from Cuba it would desist from acts prejudicial to the US

No one would deny that the program subjected detainees to less than pleasant treatment, but the salient point is, for what purpose?

For the past six years President Obama has consistently deplored all Palestinian efforts to end-run negotiations in search of a UN-imposed agreement on Israel.

It’s not an admiration. It is simply a kind of journalist fascination. It stands out, it’s different from more traditional Orthodoxy.

For Am Yisrael, the sun’s movements are subservient to the purpose of our existence.

Israelis now know Arab terrorism isn’t caused by Israeli occupation but by ending Israeli occupation
