Yet another proposed UN resolution against Israel

I am unsurprised by yet another Arab backed UN resolution against Israel. Here from the Independent.
The United States last night vetoed a UN Security Council resolution condemning Israel in the wake of the artillery attack which killed 18 Palestinian civilians last week in the northern Gaza town of Beit Hanoun.

Of course France and Russia backed it (do they share leadership?) and the US vetoed it:
Britain abstained, France and Russia voted in favour, but America refused to allow the United Nations to condemn the Israelis after Wednesday's mistaken rocket strike on Beit Hanoun, which killed 19 civilians.

I just love the Independent's title for the article:
US vetoes 'biased' UN resolution attacking Israel's Gaza bloodbath

It implies that not only is the vetoed UN resolution not biased but it is also a bloodbath. It is a terribly sad story - true. But why are Palestinian terror attacks never called bloodbaths? And often not even terrorism.

And of course it was biased. Where are the UN resolutions against Palestinian terrorism? Or other Islamist crimes?

Let us look at this article, I have translated it from a Danish newspaper, "Weekendavisen". It was written by Jesper D. Jensen og Klaus Wivel.

“The moral compass of the UN has been broken for decades. The world organisation does not mirror an objective standard for international justice. 'It mirrors the total sum of the political interests of the member states at a given time.’ [Dore Gold, ex. Israeli UN ambassador]

While there has been particularly horrible infringements of human rights in Tibet, Cambodia, Rwanda and other places without any mentionable UN protests, Israel has been condemned again and again by the world organisation. Israel continues year by year to ignore practically all UN resolutions that commonly conclude that Israel is breaking international law, ruthlessly has suppressed the Palestinians and is a threat against both the regional and global stability.

During the 59. Assembly of the UN 2004-2005, 19 Israel critical resolutions were passed, while not a single was passed condemning the ethnical cleansings and mass murders in Darfur in Islamic Sudan. Israel is without comparison the country that through the history of the General Assembly has received most condemnations.

For the past last years the average has been 20 resolutions, and since the creation of the UN the General Assembly has condemned Israel with around 500 resolutions - or around half of all resolutions concerning condemnations of a country. These numbers are from official Israeli statistics and the UN UNISPAL database.

The General Assembly started having emergency sessions in 1956, and since then 5 out of 10 have been about Israel. In comparison there were no emergency sessions in connection with the murder of a people in Rwanda, the ethnical cleansings and mass murders in the former Yugoslavia or during the last years of barbarism in Sudan, where hundreds of thousands of people have lost their lives.

The Israeli critical tendency has also manifested itself through the UN Commission on Human Rights in Genève. Over the last 40 years around 30 percent of the commission's resolutions, condemning named countries, have been targeting Israel. In comparison the lack of human rights in the Arabic countries or China has been the object of few resolutions.


It blows my mind that one little country can receive so much attention in the form of condemnation from the UN. It clearly shows the organisation's Muslim colored viewpoint.

To shred some light and present another view I present this link: Arab-Israeli conflict: Basic facts. Some of the facts:

Of the 175 United Nations Security Council resolutions passed before 1990, 97 were directed against Israel. Of the 690 General Assembly resolutions voted on before 1990, 429 were directed against Israel. The U.N. was silent while 58 Jerusalem synagogues were destroyed by the Jordanians. The U.N. was silent while the Jordanians destroyed 58 Jerusalem Synagogues and systematically desecrated the ancient Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives. The U.N. was silent while the Jordanians prevented Jews from visiting the Temple Mount and the Western Wall.

This anti-Israel stance of the UN is a natural consequence of its membership structure. 21 members of the UN are Arab countries, and 52 members represent Islamic countries. Since the Arab Israeli conflict is represented as a religious conflict (see article) Israel as the only Jewish state has no chance for a fair hearing in the UN.

The violent attacks on Israeli civilians are wrong, intolerable, and need condemnation, as all violence against civilians.
However, we cannot forget and ignore that the forceful suppression of a people will inevitably lead to a struggle for freedom and equal-rights, and if unsuccessful to indoctrination and blinding hatred.
Are you surprised about the critic on Israel? Israel is part of the western community, which supposedly means similar moral obligations and a responsible use of it's power and abileties. (I could think of many instances where these obligations have been broken or bended by many of the members, but never the less...)
As such there are higher expectations on Israel, as a 'western, democratic' state, than on a radical group or even an elected extremist government over 1.5m people. As long as Israel treats Gaza, and even the rather peaceful Palestinian territories, like a W. Ghetto, blocking, at best restricting, electricity, trade, transport, food, medicine, even UN shipments, etc., there for crippling infrastructure down to heating in winter and water supply etc., 'breaking' international law and agreed deals with land grabs, destroying ...
I will save the time to go on and deeper adding sources, with quotations and so on.
My point is, that as long as Israel destroys or cripples as collective punishment the lives of Pal. civilians (incl. during the times of the truce), most of the world community will view Israel as main responsible. This view would shift would Israel give a mutually fair land deal (a deal was already agreed, though it might not be seen as fair by both sides) not based on religious extremist groups, stopping its oppressive policies. The power struggle taking place between the Palestinian groups, for instance, would already shift the view away from Israel as the main cause of suffering, but more importantly it could allow for some dignity, and ability to form one’s own path for the Palestinians, and for the possibility to demand from all their political groups (incl. Hamas) respect towards Israel.

(That humanitarian crisis points have been left without Un resolutions being crafted, is sad, but not relevant for what is happening in the Middle East. A bias by the UN is very much provable in Israelis favour too, where by all bias decision making is critical. The UN is surely not an anti-Israel coloured institution, otherwise the resolutions (which are nearly all blocked by the US, even the most straight forward once) would have already been followed by actions.

This is my opinion anyway, for what little it counts.

I found a friend called Crianhas she helped me so much that one time when I will be stronger and more powerful and get lots of flyff penya. I started to build it up without help and any flyff money, my friend helped a little but I did most of the work. I meet some friends along the way. My assist is level 57 and it is getting harder and harder, but my friends who use flyff gold to level me are the greatest. Well, there is one thing and that it is addictive to buy flyff penya. When I get home from school I play all day, every second that I can. My life as a vagrant began as being hard and lost without knowing to get cheap penya to power my assist.
