The U.N. at Work

Add one more to the blood-money-for-oil crimes.

Dore Gold, Israel’s ambassador to the U.N. from 1997-99, has an opinion piece in today’s Wall Street Journal that makes crystal clear that the UN is little more than a propaganda and financial organ for enemies of the Unite States. 

He writes: “In 2003 and 2004, the Israel Defense Forces captured documentation showing how the U.N. Development Program was regularly funding two Hamas front organizations: the Tulkarm Charity Committee and the Jenin District Committee for Charitable Funds.”

The UN Security Council, we know simply from reviewing its membership and its opposition to resolutions proposed by the United States, is dominated by our enemies.

If Senator Kerry and his liberal-socialist colleagues truly believe that the UN must have the final word on whether we can take military action to defend our national interests, they are fools.
