UN Security Council Declares War on al-Qaeda in Mali
You know, right after they discuss it some more, they are going to send three white APCs to Mali.... and some cameras.
USA Today: The U.N. Security Council on Thursday authorized military action to wrest northern Mali from the control of al-Qaeda-linked extremists but demanded progress first on political reconciliation, elections and training African troops and police.I bet AQ is just shaking in their little booties on that one.

UN Hosts Art Depicting Palestine as All of Israel
Of course, this IS the UN
The UN is now hosting in the public entrance hall of its New York headquarters a Palestinian exhibit which includes pieces that artfully depict all of Israel as Palestine. The display goes hand-in-hand with the logo featured at the top of the cover page of the speech that Palestinian leader Mahmoud Abbas’ delivered to the General Assembly on November 29, 2012. That emblem continues to promote a one state solution, Palestine without Israel.The exhibit should be called from the river to the sea....
On November 29th the General Assembly granted “Palestine” the status of “non-member observer state” under the pretense that the move brought the world closer to a two-state solution. But that same evening Palestinian UN representative Riyadh Mansour opened an exhibit entitled Palestine – Memories Dreams Perseverance.” The political message is not subtle, with the works bearing titles such as “homeless,” “delirious in exile,” and “to Jerusalem we travel.”[ More...]
Meanwhile, a UN official was arrested for collaborating with al-Shabaab.
Yup, like I said - this IS the UN.

Jewish NGO at UNGA for PA Vote..
“When Mahmoud Abbas came out the entire room was cheering like Jesus himself had just got up on the stage, like a rock star had just come out.”**A commenter noted this about the what Abbas was saying in "Arabic". I am unsure if it was in a radio broadcast or at the UNGA-
This is the description Natalie Solomon, manager of the Israel Programs of Taglit-Birthright‘s Alumni Community, gives of Mahmoud Abbas’s entry into the UN General Assembly Hall Thursday. She was the leader of the small group of young Israel supporters who were originally refused admission to the assembly hall at Thursday’s “The Question of Palestine” debate that concluded in a vote to upgrade the status of the Palestinian Authority to non-member status.
In the end the group was allowed into the hall–sort of[...]
“We found ourselves in a sea of Palestinian supporters – including the 100 brought in by the UN’s own Division for Palestinian Rights. (In total there were about 320 seats in the visitor’s gallery, with some reserved for members of the press),” Bayefsky added. Revealingly, during Abbas’ lengthy speech the outbursts of clapping across the gallery would commence **before the translation of the Arabic sentence into other languages had finished. It was an exercise in what one might call Benghazi-style spontaneity,” she concluded.
Solomon said that while the crowd cheered for Abbas, “when the Israel ambassador was speaking you could hear a pin drop. There were two or three points when we clapped and afterward we stood up and gave him a standing ovation.”
Palestinian Authority leader Mahmoud Abbas succeeded in his appeal at the UN General Assembly on Thursday, Nov. 29, to upgrade the status of the PLO as an “observer state’ at the UN.Continued below fold:
All presentations that Abbas made to his people in the Arabic language made it clear that his concept of an “observer state” will include all of Palestine, “from the river to the sea”, in accordance with the PLO Covenant, which was never cancelled.[...]

Today is a proud day to be a Palestinian, and we must be united. Today we take the first step towards ending the occupation, and reclaiming our homeland, from Gaza, to Nablus, Jerusalem, Haifa, Afula, all of Palestine.
We will use our newfound recognition to hold the occupation accountable for its crimes against humanity in the past two weeks.
We are all one Palestine, and now more than ever we must be united because this is the beginning of the end of the occupation.
Our brothers in Haifa, Jaffa, Jerusalem, Gaza, we now all speak with one voice”.

Israeli Ambassador to the UN Addresses UNGA Debate On "The Question of Palestine"..
Today the UN will name Palestine an (non-member) "observer state"[Update: Resolution passed with 2/3 majority]. Also today, the UN expels a prominent Jewish group from the Palestinian vote
Today, for the first time, the United Nations will name Palestine a (non-member) “observer state” by first engaging in exactly the charge that they press against Israel: apartheid.Back to Amb Prosor's excellent speech, via Israel's Ministry of Foreign Affairs[Audio available at link]
For kick-off day and the vote at the General Assembly, which is supposed to be all about mutual respect and coexistence, “Palestine” has teamed up with the “UN Division for Palestinian Rights” and UN officials to pack the Assembly hall with Palestine supporters while denying access to a prominent Jewish organization.
Staging thunderous applause with no discernible dissent for the unsuspecting global media is evidently a top Palestinian priority.
The extraordinary scheme to deny access to the General Assembly to an unpalatable, though formally accredited, UN NGO looked like this.[More...]
On November 29, 1947, the United Nations voted to partition then British-Mandate Palestine into two states: one Jewish, one Arab. Two states for two peoples.
A great Jewish sage once wrote, "The truth can hurt like a thorn, at first; but in the end it blossoms like a rose."
His words came to my mind today. His insight could really benefit many in this hall.
It takes a well of truth to water the seeds of peace. Yet, we continue to witness a drought of candor in this body's discussion of the Israeli-Palestinian Conflict. On this historic day, real facts in the General Assembly remain few and far between.
For any who have been here on November 29th before, today is déjà vu. Some of you may have noticed that some minor changes have been taking place in the Middle East lately, but any changes in this body's resolutions condemning Israel are very, very rare. Indeed, it didn't take a creative writer to craft the language in these resolutions. The exact same text is copied and pasted, year after year - much of it dating back five decades.
The account we heard today is one-sided. It is unilateral. It is unjust. And it is unhelpful. It presents a distorted and impartial version of history. It transforms the cause of Palestinian self-determination into a deliberate attempt to denigrate, defame, and delegitimize the State of Israel.
The political dynamics in this body are sadly predictable. Every November, the leaves change color in New York, but the automatic anti-Israel majority never changes its votes. Each and every responsible member of the international community that affixes its seal of approval on this exact same set of resolutions - which are irrelevant at best, and damaging at worst - should do a little soul searching. Is this the message that you want the General Assembly to send to the world?When we will finally pull out of the UN? Our tax monies are wasted day after day after...
Let me take a moment to remind this Assembly about what actually occurred on this day 64 years ago - and in the days that followed.
On November 29, 1947, the United Nations voted to partition then British-Mandate Palestine into two states: one Jewish, one Arab. Two states for two peoples. The Jewish population accepted that plan and declared a new state in its ancient homeland. It reflected the Zionist conviction that it was both necessary and possible to live in peace with our neighbors in the land of our forefathers. The Arab inhabitants rejected the plan and launched a war of annihilation against the new Jewish state, joined by the armies of five Arab members of the United Nations.
One percent of Israel's population died during this assault by five armies. Think about that price. It would be the equivalent of 650,000 dying in France today, or 3 million dying in the United States, or 13 million dying in China. As a result of the war, there were Arabs who became refugees. A similar number of Jews, who lived in Arab countries, were forced to flee their homes as well. They, too, became refugees.
The difference between these two distinct populations was - and still is - that Israel absorbed the refugees into our society. Our neighbors did not.

What? UN Affiliated Election Monitors Will Be Looking For Voter Suppression By Conservative Groups..
As one person stated: Are they replacing the New Black Panthers?
United Nations-affiliated election monitors from Europe and central Asia will be at polling places around the U.S. looking for voter suppression activities by conservative groups, a concern raised by civil rights groups during a meeting this week. The intervention has drawn criticism from a prominent conservative-leaning group combating election fraud.h/t Tabitha
The Organization for Security and Cooperation in Europe ( OSCE), a United Nations partner on democratization and human rights projects, will deploy 44 observers around the county on Election Day to monitor an array of activities, including potential disputes at polling places.
Liberal-leaning civil rights groups met with representatives from the OSCE this week to raise their fears about what they say are systematic efforts to suppress minority voters likely to vote for President Obama.
The Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights, the NAACP and the ACLU, among other groups, warned this month in a letter to Daan Everts, a senior official with OSCE, of “a coordinated political effort to disenfranchise millions of Americans — particularly traditionally disenfranchised groups like minorities.”
The request for foreign monitoring of election sites drew a strong rebuke from Catherine Engelbrecht, founder and president of True the Vote, a conservative-leaning group seeking to crack down on election fraud.
“These activist groups sought assistance not from American sources, but from the United Nations,” she said in a statement to The Hill. “The United Nations has no jurisdiction over American elections.”
Previously, on October 7th, Rep Elijah Cummings and Senator Boxer targeted True the Vote
...Cummings is upset that Engelbrecht would train Americans to ensure poll veracity. So is California Senator Barbara Boxer (D-CA), who tweeted, “I don’t believe this is ‘True the Vote.’ I believe it’s ‘Stop the Vote.’” She asked the Department of Justice to “protect Americans from voter intimidation … No group can be allowed to intimidate or interfere with this fundamental right that is essential for American democracy.” In other words, don’t purge voter rolls of improper voters. Leave it full of dead folks, people registered to homes that don’t exist, and the like.[...]The dems want conservatives to leaver their illegal, jailed, dead, dog, cat and Mickey Mouse voters alone!
Breitbart News spoke with Engelbrecht about Cummings’ and Boxer’s attempts intimidate poll volunteers. “Rep. Cummings has no power to independently issue a subpoena,” Engelbrecht said. “But that didn’t stop him from leaking his letter to the same Los Angeles Times reporter who wrote the original story slandering us. Then Rep. Cummings went on Soledad O’Brien’s show on CNN and, just as Sen. Boxer had done the previous week all over MSNBC, he used his power of office to assault private citizens. Leaders on the left, including Soros funded organizations like Common Cause and DEMOS, are working overtime to discourage citizens from volunteering this election cycle; fear mongering to perpetuate the myth that they are somehow being victimized. Why? They are either trying to rally their base, trying to hide something, or both.

New York Post Assembles Gift Basket For Ahmadinejad: 'Welcome to NYC, A'jad!'
This is a hilarious example of in yo face, bitch
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad arrived last night at the Warwick Hotel in Midtown in advance of his annual hate-spewing address to the UN General Assembly on Wednesday — and The Post tried to deliver him a gift fit for a despot.I can't stop laughing.
The anti-Semite’s special welcome basket — from New Yorkers with love — included such locally procured goodies as Gold’s Borscht, Manischewitz Gefilte Fish and smoked whitefish from the world-famous Murray’s Sturgeon House on the Upper West Side.
If Ahmadinejad (pronounced: I’m a dinner jacket) needed midnight munchies during his visit to this infidel city, there were also plenty of H&H bagels, onion bialys and Zabar’s cream cheese.
To cheer up the sourpuss hatemonger, there’s a $125 comped ticket to the off-Broadway play “Old Jews Telling Jokes” — booked in his name. It just might take the edge off his bloodthirsty desire to develop nuclear weapons and wipe Israel off the map.

Obama To Condemn The First Amendment Before The UN
Obama, stop your damn nonsense and man up for God's sake. The death of four Americans is on you and your administration's hands, not on the maker of that stupid video.
National Security Council spokesman Tommy Vietor previews the president's speech to the UN General Assembly next week:What's with "we reject" business? Sorry Obama, you do not speak for me in the "we". I am laughing at that stupid movie as is my right under the 1st Amendment. I am laughing at those who are killing each other over a video they haven't seen.
"UNGA always provides an opportunity for the President to put the international situation in context, and to put forward a vision of US leadership. I would certainly expect the President to address the recent unrest in the Muslim world, and the broader context of the democratic transitions in the Arab World."
"As he has in recent days, the President will make it clear that we reject the views in this video, while also underscoring that violence is never acceptable – a message that has been echoed by the leaders he has personally reached out to in places like Libya, Egypt and Yemen. He will also send a clear message that the United States will never retreat from the world; will bring justice to those who harm Americans; and will stand strongly for our democratic values abroad.
Most importantly, I am mourning the loss of four Americans murdered at the Benghazi Consulate. You are doing them a disservice, especially the former SEALs who fought for our rights! Shame on you Obama!

The Geneva-based human rights group is calling on UN chief Ban Ki-moon, who addressed the conference on the same day, to condemn the selection of the Tehran regime.Iran to UN:

Results! PMW reports lead to closure of website and investigation of NGO
This past Monday, Palestinian Media Watch reported on two Palestinian NGOs that were spreading hate speech and promoting violence against Jews and Israelis. 24 hours later, one NGO's website was closed down while the other NGO was being investigated by one of its funders, Save the Children UK.I love the word - OWND.
PMW reported that the Palestinian UN-funded NGO, the Burj Luq-Luq Social Center, performed a puppet show for children, whose educational message was: "Hold machine guns, not cigarettes" because "youth are being killed by the Jews." The NGO posted the video of the puppet show on its website next to the names of its funders. After PMW's release, the website is now showing the following message: "Coming Soon! This website is coming soon, please check back later." [http://burjalluqluq.org/main/]
PMW also documented glorification of terrorists by PYALARA, an NGO funded by the EU through the European Commission Humanitarian Aid Office, Save the Children UK and Cordaid. On their weekly PA TV program, the PYALARA hosts referred to terrorists including suicide terrorists as "more honored than all of us...[More...]

Puppet show at UN-supported Palestinian NGO: Replace cigarettes with machine guns
A Palestinian NGO, the Burj Luq-Luq Social Center Society organization, performed a puppet show for children in East Jerusalem to promote non-smoking. The educational message delivered by the puppets instructed children to replace cigarettes with machine guns:Just think, the UN wants to regulate the web.
Will their message be Machine Guns NOT Cigarettes? Or, will only a certain group of people be allowed to see that message on the net?

UN Tweet Partly Responsible For Toulouse Massacre?
Anorak asks, "Did UN worker’s anti-Israel tweet provoke Mohammed Merah to murder?"
I think that's a very good question. Mohammed Merah claims he killed the Jewish children in revenge 'for deaths of Palestinian children'.
In fact, the little girl had been mortally injured in a car accident back in 2006.
But did the image of a dead Palestinian child and a UN officer claiming the cause was Israeli attacks incite Mohammed Merah to execute little Miriam Monsonego?
Update by SH: One of the Forsane Alizza's webpages latest link here shows they were following the "propaganda" developments in Gaza at the time. As an IDF spokesperson commented the photo was proven false but it spread like wildfire.

Netanyahu: Better Bad Press Than a Good Eulogy...
"Hizbullah-controlled Lebanon now presides over the UN Security Council"..
I especially likes his remark regarding UN Security Council
“It’s here, year after year, that Israel is unjustly singled out for condemnation,” Netanyahu said Friday afternoon in New York. “It’s singled out for condemnation more often than all the nations of the world combined.Meanwhile, Abbas received a standing ovation when he waved his application for statehood.
“This is an unfortunate part of the UN institution. It’s the theater of the absurd,” he added. “It not only casts Israel as the villains. It often casts real villains in leading roles. … Hizbullah-controlled Lebanon now presides over the UN Security Council. So you could say that a terrorist organization now chairs the [organization pledged to preserve security].
“You couldn’t make this stuff up,” he said incredulously.[Emphasis mine...ed]

Good News! Palestinian Authority Chose Mother Of 4 Pali Terrorists, Get This...
To Launch Statehood Campaign
The Palestinian Authority chose the mother of 4 terrorist murderers, one of whom killed seven Israeli civilians and attempted to killed twelve others, as the person to launch their statehood campaign with the UN.What, did they choose her because of the mostestest or the leastestest terrorists she produced in her womb?
In a widely publicized event, the PA had Latifa Abu Hmeid lead the procession to the UN offices in Ramallah and to hand over a letter for the UN Secretary General Ban Ki Moon.
The official PA daily reported that she launched the UN campaign last week, and noted that she is the "mother of seven prisoners and of the Shahid (Martyr) Abd Al-Mun'im Abu Hmeid." However, the paper did not mention that 4 of her imprisoned sons are murderers[...]
The four sons are serving a total of 18 life sentences for the following crimes:
Nasser Abu Hmeid - 7 life sentences + 50 years - commander in Fatah's military wing the Al-Aqsa Martyrs' Brigades in Ramallah. Convicted of killing seven Israeli civilians and 12 attempted murders.
Nasr Abu Hmeid - 5 life sentences - Member of terror faction of Fatah, Tanzim, and convicted of involvement in two terror attacks and arms dealing.
Sharif Abu Hmeid - 4 life sentences - a member in one of the brothers' units carrying out terror attacks against civilians and soldiers. Accompanied a suicide bomber to his attack in March 2002.
Muhammad Abu Hmeid - 2 life sentences + 30 years - involvement in terror attacks.
A fifth son, Abd Al-Mun'im Muhammad Yusuf Naji Abu Hmeid, the one reffered to as "Martyr," was a member of the military wing of Hamas, Izz A-Din Al-Qassam Brigades, and planned and carried out the ambush and murder of an Israeli intelligence officer.[Continue reading]

Boko Haram Islamotards Murder 12 In NE Nigeria
MAIDUGURI, Nigeria (AP) — A radical Muslim sect blamed for attacks across northeast Nigeria bombed a police station and robbed two banks Thursday, killing 12 people in an assault highlighting the group's escalating willingness to shed blood, authorities said.
The sect, known locally as Boko Haram, stormed into the city of Gobi in Adamawa state in broad daylight, first attacking the police precinct with bombs and raking the building with gunfire, police commissioner A.T. Shinaba said. The group killed four police officers and a soldier guarding the area, he said.
The sect members then shot their way into two local branches of First Bank PLC and United Bank for Africa PLC, killing seven bank employees before speeding away with an unknown amount of cash, Shinaba said. Four others suffered injuries in the attack.
Boko Haram seeks to impose Taliban style Shariah law in Northern Nigeria
The official name of the group is Jama'atu Ahlis Sunna Lidda'awati wal-Jihad, which in Arabic means "People Committed to the Propagation of the Prophet's Teachings and JihadEarlier today Mr E Blogger posted about another attack by the same group on the UN Building in Abuja. 20 reportedly were killed in the suicide attack

GENEVA, July 6 – UN Watch, a Geneva-based monitoring group, today called on UN rights chief Navi Pillay to condemn the publication of an anti-semitic cartoon by Richard Falk, the UN Human Rights Council’s expert on Palestine.After the above protest was published, Falk deleted it and denies posting it
“For the UN human rights system to be credible in the fight against racism, its own representatives must not be allowed to incite hatred and racial discrimination with impunity,” wrote UN Watch executive director Hillel Neuer, in a letter sent today to the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.
Damn UN Watch & Google cache...heh
Falk, you are so Falked up.

UPDATE: I forgot Falked up Falk is also a 9/11 truther
UPDATE II: Falked up Falk apologizes to Jews and animals, yes, I said animals.
......To be clear, I oppose any denigration of a people based on ethnicity, race, religion, stage of development, and believe in the human dignity of all people in their individual and collective identity. Beyond this, if we are to have a sustainable human future we must also make peace with nature, and treat animals with as much respect as possible. This is both a sacred imperative of my idea of a spiritual life, but also an integral aspect of species survival on an increasingly crowded, overheated, and endangered planet.Falk lied about it, was caught in the lie, so I suppose this is the best we can expect from a 9/11 truther.
Returning to the cartoon, I regret my carelessness, and apologize for any unintended hurt and outrage caused thereby. At the same time, I am quite aware that many of the messages were motivated to discredit me due to my views of Israeli policies and behavior.

The UN is about to grant statehood to Palestine?
"The Palestinian Authority is now largely ready to govern a state, the office of the United Nations special coordinator for the Middle East peace process said in a report on Tuesday".
Read the rest.
A UN committee grants accreditation to the anti-Israeli pro-Hamas Free Palestine Movement (FPM)
WTF? I said to meself. Never realized this before:
1. In August 2010 the UN Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People granted accreditation to the Free Palestine Movement (FPM), an extreme leftist network based in California which participates in anti-Israeli projects, focusing on sending flotillas to the Gaza Strip. Its objectives are to support the de facto Hamas administration in the Gaza Strip, isolate Israel, blacken Israel's image in the eyes of the world and increase international pressure on it.
2. The FPM is headed by Dr. Paul Larudee, who in 2009 was given an award by Ismail Haniya, head of the de facto administration in the Gaza Strip, in honor of his support. Paul Larudee applied for and received accreditation from the UN committee as an NGO member of the "network of civil society organizations active on the question of Palestine."
3. Following the receipt of accreditation, the FPM added "A United Nations Accredited NGO" to its letterhead. In our assessment, the FPM regards the accreditation as a kind of UN stamp of approval for itself and its anti-Israeli projects, particularly the flotillas (Wolfgang Grieger, the committee secretary, ended the letter by wishing the FPM "every success in [its] endeavours in support of a comprehensive, just and lasting solution to the question of Palestine.")[..]
FPM's other plans and activities
11. In addition to its media-covered flotilla launches to the Gaza Strip, the FGM is promoting other ideas for embarrassing and slandering Israel. They include dispatching a plane to the Gaza Strip ("Palestine by air") in collaboration with other elements (among them "the authorities in Gaza," i.e., the de facto Hamas administration). The status of "Palestine by air" is unclear.
Cartoon for the "Palestine by air" project, from the FPM website.
12. In addition, the FPM encourages its activists to participate in activities to boycott Israel (its website has a link to the BDS site, an organization specializing in promoting international boycotts, divestments and sanctions of the State of Israel). On March 31 the FPM website's so-called "good news" column reported a "successful" boycott of Israeli products in Canada.

U.N. To Scutinize United States Human Rights Record
That alone surprises me more than the glaring absence of certain Islamic countries like Iran or Somalia. But, at least no one can accuse the United Nations of anti-Muslim bigotry!
The United States will come under the spotlight at the UN's top human rights assembly's for the first time over the coming week along with other countries that face scrutiny by the Human Rights Council.
For some reason, this part in the article gives me no confidence that the United States will take a stand against any charges of human rights violations (emphasis mine):
Several dozen non governmental organisation are expected to lobby the debate on the US human rights record, while Washington will also defend its record.
I'm sure the Obama Administration's idea of defense will be to apologize.
Admittedly, America is not perfect. But I challenge anyone to name another country more tolerant, more charitable, or more generous.
And more dedicated to defending human rights throughout the world, not just within our borders. Name one other nation with patriots more willing to sacrifice their own lives so that others have the opportunity to experience freedom.
There are a lot of people who think America oversteps in protecting the basic human rights of others. They think America should mind its own business and that it has no right to interfere with cultural practices of others. These same people turn a blind eye to egregious human rights violations such as modern day slavery, political executions and reprehensible, institutionalized, sexual abuse and exploitation of children.
Who do such victims have standing up for their rights, if not the Greatest Defender of Freedom? Certainly not those who think ill of America.
And certainly, not the United Nations.

Finally, The UN Is Taking Jawas Seriously
We will have a special contact with a space ambassador
Mazlan Othman, a Malaysian astrophysicist, is set to be tasked with co-ordinating humanity’s response if and when extraterrestrials make contact.Finally...
Aliens who landed on earth and asked: “Take me to your leader” would be directed to Mrs Othman.
She will set out the details of her proposed new role at a Royal Society conference in Buckinghamshire next week.
The 58-year-old is expected to tell delegates that the proposal has been prompted by the recent discovery of hundreds of planets orbiting other starts, which is thought to make the discovery of extraterrestrial life more probable than ever before.
Mrs Othman is currently head of the UN’s little known Office for Outer Space Affairs (Unoosa).

Envoy: Obama Is America's "Educator in Chief on Islam", Will Support Criminalizing Defamation of Religion
What religion might that be?:
Rashad Hussain, America’s special envoy to the Organization for the Islamic Conference (OIC), the Saudi-based body formed in 1969 to “protect” Jerusalem from the Israelis, announced a new title this week for President Barack Obama. According to Hussain, Obama is America’s “Educator-in-Chief on Islam.”Oh goody, we can look forward to protecting the ROPMA and their useful organizations who support terrorism such as ISNA. One cannot mention ISNA without including their link to the Muslim Brotherhood.
Hussain so designated Obama in a keynote speech Wednesday, June 23, at the Woodrow Wilson International Center for Scholars. The occasion was another “post-Cairo” conference, following on the event that welcomed Islamist ideologue Tariq Ramadan to Washington in April. Hussain also declared that Obama is “Educator-in-Chief” on the Muslim fasting month of Ramadan, which has produced diplomatic and political events around the capital for some years. Hussain affirmed with satisfaction that presidential iftar dinners, where the fast is broken after sundown, and which had formerly been limited to diplomats from Muslim countries, now welcomed American Muslims from throughout society.
In his remarks, Hussain also congratulated Obama for sending Valerie Jarrett, a senior adviser, to last year’s annual convention of the [terror tied...ed]Islamic Society of North America [ISNA], a notorious front for Saudi-financed Muslim radicalism. Worse, Hussain has now divulged that the U.S. will support the OIC in the latter’s United Nations effort to criminalize “defamation of religion” widely perceived as a measure to suppress criticism of Muslim practices that violate human rights. "The OIC and the Obama administration will work together in the UN on the issue of defamation of religion, especially in Europe," said Hussain.

Good News!! UN Rights Appointee Pledges to Attack U.S. "Monster" and Israel
Dang, I miss John Bolton.
— As the Geneva-based non-governmental organization UN Watch warned last week, controversial ex-Sandinista Miguel d'Escoto is already abusing his new mandate as advisor to the UN Human Rights Council to promote divisive politics, pledging today on Colombian TV to use his UN podium specifically to target the U.S., which he compared to a "monster," and Israel.Shut the feck up D'Escoto, I don't take kindly to your type.
"A man who has eagerly sided with international criminals such as Iran’s Ahmadinejad and Sudan’s Al-Bashir has no credibility on human rights, and embodies precisely the inverted morality and debased political culture that currently reigns at the UN Human Rights Council, which just this week added Col. Qaddafi's Libya as a member," said UN Watch executive director Hillel Neuer.
"We continue to urge the U.S. government to make clear its objection to d'Escoto's appointment, especially after today's outburst, in which he openly confired his intention to breach UN principles of objectivity and non-selectivity," said Neuer.
Spanish news agency EFE reported today that d'Escoto told Colombian's Channel 12 TV that he will prioritize denouncing the U.S. - Colombian military base agreement before the council. Click here for English summary and here for Spanish original.
According to D’Escoto, America's “foreign bases” in Colombia “constitute a violation of the human rights” of Colombians and neighboring countries.
According to D’Escoto, Nicarauga “already knows the monster from within,” referring to the U.S. use of a Honduran base in its fight against the Sandinista government in Nicaragua from 1979 to 1990.
UN, got any idea what the initials should stand for? I am open to all suggestions.
File this under assmaggots.

UN Screens Anti-Israel Flotilla Film, Israel Denied Response
Israeli was denied, at the last minute, to show their film.
The United Nations Correspondents Association recently screened a film for foreign journalists that purported to show Israel attacking innocent activists. An Israeli request to show a second film that would put the events of the first in a more accurate light was originally granted, then denied at the last minute.I am out of polite words to express the way I feel right now. Feck you UNCA is all I can say safely.
The screening was organized by the president of the Correspondents Association, Giampaolo Pioli, who invited correspondents to see an “Israeli attack on human rights activists.”
The film shown was shot by one of the passengers on a Gaza-bound flotilla that aimed to break Israel's naval blockade of the Hamas-controlled region[...]
The footage shows Israeli troops preparing to board the vessel, then switches to scenes in which passengers treat the wounded.
Mirit Cohen, spokeswoman for Israel's UN delegation, asked to attend the event and show a film prepared by the IDF Spokesperson's unit. The IDF has released a film showing members of the pro-terrorist Turkish group IHH on the Mavi Marmara attacking soldiers with metal clubs and throwing one soldier overboard; a second film shows the ship's Chief Officer testifying that the violent attack on soldiers was premeditated.

Love Hate Boat Humanitarian Aid Refused By Hamas
A senior official from the office of the Coordinator of Government Activities in the Territories (COGAT) told The Jerusalem Post on Wednesday night that the trucks were waiting to go into Gaza at the Kerem Shalom border crossing, pending approval from Hamas.
“Hamas has refused to allow those trucks to go in,” the official said, “and if the aid is so urgent, my question is, why are they not allowing it into Gaza?”
The official added that “we have conducted talks with the Red Cross [to try and get the aid in], but Hamas is still refusing. In the meantime, the rest of truckloads will wait in Israel until further notice.
Apparently hell isn't ready for him yet.
Towards end of video you will see the wannabe martyrs, and maybe some of them became martyrs/dead guys, cutting steel rods to use as weapons.

Gaza Flotilla: More Images Of Misundertanders Of What Peace Means
Amazing how the UN Security Council called a emergency session when this happened but has yet to do anything about 46 South Korean Sailors losing their lives when N Korea torpedoed their ship in March..
South Korea would like to see the U.N. Security Council issue a political response to the North for its alleged role in the March sinking of a South Korean patrol ship instead of pursuing further sanctions, a high-ranking Seoul official said yesterdayNor have they done squat about Iran but let Israel's name be mentioned and they go bat shit crazy....
