"Russian planes enter Israeli airspace"
Op-Ed: Insanity reigns in the UN mad-houseIsraeli writer Barry Shaw explains the international hypocrisy of the UN by passing six anti-Israel resolutions in recent days while taking no action on other issues of global importance.
It may have escaped your notice but the world went completely insane in the last week of November.
In the wake of the Paris Islamic outrages that left over 130 killed and more than 300 badly injured, after the carnage in a Mali hotel, following the downing of Russian passenger and fighter planes over Sinai and Syria, and the never-ending mayhem in the Middle East with its consequential million plus refugees desperately trying to find shelter in a Europe and America that are locking their doors, the United Nations continued its blind hatred of Israel by passing another six resolutions condemning the Jewish state for all sort of alleged misdemeanors. No other country was sanctioned, only Israel.
The depravity of their anti-Israel decision making was encapsulated in one resolution that “determines once more that the continued occupation of the Syrian Golan and its de facto annexation constitute a stumbling block in the way of achieving a just, comprehensive and lasting peace in the region.”
They are not only blindly ill-informed at the UN; they are certifiably insane.
Someone needs to knock on their door and tell them about Islamic State, Al-Nusra, the slaughter of Christians, Muslims, Yazidis and Kurds by international meddlers but mostly by the murderous Assad regime.
If there is anywhere along the Syrian border where peace and justice reigns, it is Israel’s presence on the Golan Heights.
If the immorality of these resolutions wasn’t bad enough, not one European nation voted against the Syria- Golan-peace resolution. Not one!
So, while the world is going to hell in a hand-basket, according to the UN, it is Israel maintaining a peaceful Golan that is driving them there and liberal democratic Europe is their navigator.
The United Nations has become the mad-house of international diplomacy and its inmates keep proving, over and over again, that they are certifiably insane.
