The UN Dance of Death

President Bush and Prime Minister Blair yesterday shone lights on the corruption and human rights abuses of the UN, and implored the member states to reform it. This will not happen because the UN truly represents its members, including those that sanction murder of civilians. The US and UK should walk away from this cesspit and stop giving aid to sponsors of terror.

Here's the president addressing the UN General Assembly yesterday:

"When this great institution's member states choose notorious abusers of human rights to sit on the U.N. Human Rights Commission, they discredit a noble effort and undermine the credibility of the whole organization. If member countries want the United Nations to be respected and effective, they should begin by making sure it is worthy of respect."

And the Prime Minister urging the UN to fight terrorism:

"Terrorism won't be defeated until our determination is as complete as theirs; our defence of freedom as absolute as their fanaticism, our passion for democracy as great as their passion for tyranny," he said.

"They want us to believe that somehow it is our fault, that their extremism is somehow our responsibility. They play on our divisions. They exploit our hesitation: this is our weakness and they know it, and we must unite against this ghastly game with our conscience."

"Either hope will spread or violence will spread and we must take the side of hope. As we fight, the terrorists must know that the world stands united against them."

Sadly, the Muslim part of the world actively sponsors terror:

... a group of Muslim countries including Pakistan, Egypt and Syria blocked the West's attempts to get a universal condemnation of terrorism.

The group rejected a draft statement that terrorism amounted to the "deliberate and unlawful targeting and killing" of civilians and could not be "justified or legitimized by any cause or grievance".

The Muslim states said that this could be used against national liberations movements struggling against foreign occupation. Palestinian attacks against Israeli civilians are widely seen as legitimate in the Muslim world.

The Muslim nations, driven by their lust to destroy the Jewish people, have chosen the path of blood and taken the UN with them. Our nations should have no part in this barbarism. And we should sanction nations that sponsor terror - cutting off aid to Egypt would be a great start.
