Irrelevant

The UN, as far I am concerned is now completely irrelevant.

UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon is considering, based on a report from a “human rights expert” based in Algeria, putting Israel in the same category as ISIS, Boko Haram  & Al Qaeda.

The UN is a joke. It is irrelevant. Whatever noble intentions the founders of the UN had are officially down the toilet.

The last time I checked, Israel is a legitimate democracy. All citizens, regardless of the religious and cultural labels that are used to define who an individual is, have the same rights and responsibilities. No one is forced to choose either conversion or death. No one is being tortured or beheaded because they do not agree with the governing body. Young women are free to choose how to live their lives. Israel respects all cultural and religious sites, ancient temples and buildings are protected, not destroyed.

Many of the young women that were kidnapped by Boko Haram have still not returned home. ISIS  destroys priceless artifacts and buildings that are part of our collective human experience. They behead and torture their victims. Al Qaeda was responsible for 9/11 and other terrorist attacks around the world.

So tell me, how this comparison truly possible? Well considering the UN, I’m not surprised.

They are becoming irrelevant. They don’t deserve to be housed on American soil and be given tax money from hard working Americans.

Unless they change, they should find another home, preferably one that is foolish enough to house terrorists and despots.

It’s Genocide, Stupid

The definition of genocide is as follows:

the deliberate killing of a large group of people, especially those of a particular ethnic group or nation.

Ban Ki-Moon, the Secretary General of the United Nations has declared that that Armenian genocide 100 years ago was not a genocide. He labels it an “atrocity”.

This is just another example of why the UN has become more and more irrelevant.

If a particular ethic group or culture is singled out for murder simply because of who they are or what they believe, that is genocide. Plain and simple.

By denying or downgrading the facts, the UN is going against the very reason it was created. In it’s charter, the following is stated:

To maintain international peace and security, and to that end: to take effective collective measures for the prevention and removal of threats to the peace, and for the suppression of acts of aggression or other breaches of the peace, and to bring about by peaceful means, and in conformity with the principles of justice and international law, adjustment or settlement of international disputes or situations which might lead to a breach of the peace;

Today, as many of you may know or not know, is Holocaust Remembrance Day. I stand with my Armenian brothers and sisters, who 100 years ago, faced the same fate that my own family faced 70 years ago.

Perhaps it’s time to clean house at the UN, or better yet, dismantle an organization that has become nothing more than a mouth piece for despots and murderers.
