Posted on 12/27/2017 9:04:37 PM PST by Kaslin
At one of the White House Christmas parties, President Trump asked me to say a few words before I closed the evening with a prayer. I thanked the President for many things, including having the guts to do what no other president has done in officially recognizing Jerusalem as the capital of Israel. Mr. President, I said, you are on the right side of history and the right side of God.
That the United Nations is on the wrong side of history and would condemn President Trumps declaration about Jerusalem was completely expected . . . and totally illogical. Historically, Jerusalem has been the recognized capital of Israel since 1000 BC. From a geopolitical perspective, the United Nations recognizes the right of every other nation to designate its own capital. Why not Israel?
The only logical explanation for the UNs condemnation of U.S. policy about Israel is that the United Nations is overwhelmingly anti-Semitic. President Trump is right to oppose the financial excess, corruption, and growing anti-Semitism in the United Nations by cutting U.S. contributions $285 million nearly 25 percent in 2018.
It is clear that the organization which receives nearly a quarter of its budget from the United States alone (far more than any other country) is increasingly a safe place for pure anti-Semitism to grow. Its opposition to Israel has gone far beyond political opposition; it is a racist organization.
There is no end to the well-documented absurdities of the United Nations. It’s unthinkable that Turkey is now on the executive board of The United Nations Educational, Scientific and Cultural Organization (UNESCO), which is responsible for promoting and protecting cultural sites around the world. This summer alone Turkey seized 50 ancient Christian churches and properties, not to mention the countless schools and universities affected by Erdogan’s vicious crackdown on human rights, schools and cultural institutions.
Speaking of human rights, the United Nations’ Human Rights Commission (UNHRC) now includes the nations of Venezuela, Cuba, and the Philippines—all nations that are notorious for their violations of human rights. They also currently placed Syria, a virtual protectorate of Iran, on a committee focused on “decolonization,” and they once named Zimbabwe’s brutal former dictator, Robert Mugabe, a “goodwill ambassador” for the World Health Organization (WHO). These facts sound more like farce than fact—but the examples just go on and on; it would take pages and pages even to summarize them.
So, it should not surprise us that, according to UN Watch, the State of Israel has been subject to 46 condemnations from UNESCO as opposed to Syria’s single condemnation and no condemnations for North Korea, Iran or Sudan. The UN human rights council from 2006 to 2017 condemned Israel on 68 occasions, but only issued another 67 condemnations over the entire ten years for all the other nations of the world, combined. The UN General Assembly criticized individual nations 97 times from 2012 to 2015 of which 83 were against Israel. In 2017 alone the UN voted against Israel 21 times, and only voted to condemn Iran, Russia, North Korea, Myanmar and Syria, once.
I thank God that President Trump — unlike any other U.S. president — is insisting that the United Nations no longer act as the international facilitator of such blatant anti-Semitism. President Trump's willingness to financially drain this expanding cesspool of racism may be his most consequential global decision.

The U.N. is antisemitic? No, really? Boy, they sure had me fooled...
‘Invite’ the U.N. to 86 NYC
The UN is really anti human rights. The countries appointed to head up the human rights commission are always the worst of the worst. Sudan????
Sure it is.
Trump is the first President to make these people face reality, not the elaborate fantasies they’ve concocted for themselves over the decades, usually with our money. It’s a whole new ballgame.

Arabs and other muslims are also Semitic people.
Some of the strongest “anti-semites” are ... Semites.
How about “anti-Judaism” or “anti-Israel”? The UN is definitely not opposed to Arabs or muslims.
I wouldn’t say they’re anti-Semitic. They just hate Jews. Arab Muslims they’re fine with.
Actually no, they love the arabs... and arabs are semites also.
The majority voting block is OIC.
It is an Islamic dominated, _institution_.
There’s propaganda posted here on FR telling us we should be so grateful and glad that Nikki Haley is trimming the UN budget.
“Wouldn’t she make a great president?” is also laced into some of the “Goebbels Dump” I read about Haley.
I say no way to Haley as POTUS and am reminded of the message I heard when I was young.
“US out of the UN and the UN out of the US”
Internationalism as embodied in the UN, the fulfillment of Progressive Woodrow Wilson’s dream, needs to be flushed away like any other excrement would be.
WHAT? How long have they been sitting on this information?
Anti Semitic and marxist?
I call them the marxist muslim coalition, the same ones who foisted Obama on America. The same voices who voted him the best man for the last 10 years...
The same ones having the war on White Christian Western European man and his descendants (G7)...of which America is the hub.
,,,,,, it’s never been a secret the UN is anti-Semitic but what amazes me is my Jewish friends who are democrats who also appear to be less than supportive of Israel and it’s existence .
