Anne Bayefsky, writing in the NY Daily News, reports on the UN’s new website at www.un.org.
The UN site is accessed by educational institutions, advocates, parliamentarians, non-governmental organizations and individuals around the world in six languages. Sooner or later, almost every schoolchild in America is bound to log on to www.un.org. The American taxpayer pays 22% of the cost of building and maintaining the UN website (along with all other regular budget costs). And in only five steps your child too can listen to Iranian President Ahmadinejad deny the Holocaust and talk about those Zionists’ “ugly faces.” (These were his words at the UN Durban II “anti-racism” conference in April, which the UN has chosen to archive and place permanently on its website.)
Here are the directions to the world of UN-driven hatred for the Jewish people:
STEP 1: Go to www.un.org
STEP 2: Click “welcome” and you are greeted with “United Nations – It’s your world!” [Well, with a few exceptions]
STEP 3: Here we are at the UN English-language home page, headlined “United Nations: We the peoples.A stronger UN for a better world.” [Depending on who you are and where you live, mind you] Now click on “Stories from the UN News Center.”
STEP 4: Click on “What, when at the UN.”
STEP 5: And here (http://www.un.org/apps/news/html/whatwhen.html) we are at the gateway to everything happening at the UN. Under “At a Glance: Recent Action,” you can “browse meeting summaries & press releases” by just choosing “select body and date.” What body and date, you ask? A handy drop-down menu makes it very easy to understand the programs and priorities for anyone who isn’t quite sure what the UN does. There are ten choices: “All venues, General Assembly President, 1st Committee (Disarmament), 2nd Committee (Economic & Social), 3rd Committee (Social, Humanitarian), 4th Committee (Special Political), 5th Committee (Administrative & Budgetary), 6th Committee (Legal), Palestinian Rights, and Committee on Information.”
That’s right folks, there is so much material about the Palestinians, which really means, negative material about Israel, that it merits its own section! No other country merits such attention. None. Not China with its 1.4 billion people, or Russia with its massacres in Chechnya, not France with its colonialism or Cambodia with its genocide. Nope, Israel is the center of the UN’s activity.
Amazing and really quite disturbing even if it’s not all that surprising.
