The UN’s longstanding inability to differentiate between good and evil fosters indifference to human life. Nobody believes the UN actually preserves and protects the people who need it most. In the UN’s case, past performance is very much an indication of future results.
History will not kindly remember the incessant diplomatic maneuvering that has replaced the principled and uncompromising leadership for which all humanity yearns. What the world so desperately needs now is a Churchill, a Truman, a Reagan.
There is right and there is wrong. As Americans, as Jews, as children and grandchildren of Holocaust survivors, it is incumbent upon our generation to protest and challenge the propagation of hatred. A world that accepts brutality and cold-blooded barbarism over morality and the rule of law is indeed a world gone mad.
