In the aftermath of World War 11, United Nations was established on 24 October 1945 to maintain international peace and security; develop friendly relations among nations; cooperate in solving international problems and promoting respect for human rights.
However 72 years later today UN remains crippled and failed the humanity. Since its establishment the UN, blackmailed by US and its European partners, protected war crimes of Israel –an artificial entity which the UN created in violation of its very principles on which it was founded.
Today UN has become cheap tool to legalize US-Israeli wars turning Muslim countries into slaughter houses causing unprecedented misery to millions.
Last week’s resignation of the head of the United Nations' West Asia Commission, Rima Khalaf, over pressure to withdraw a report that accused Israel of imposing an apartheid regime on Palestinians, demonstrates collapse of UN.
Lebanon-based Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA), which comprises 18 Arab states, published the report on 23 March 2017, said it was the first time a UN body had clearly made the charge.
Rima Khalaf said that" UN Secretary-General Antonio Guterres, under pressure from US and Israel, issued his orders to me to withdraw the report. I asked him to review his position, but he insisted". "Therefore, I submitted to him my resignation from the UN."
"One commentator said that the real news is that this time around, Israel, with all its influence in Washington, cannot put the genie back into the bottle. Khalaf’s resignation indicates that Guterres acted obediently and swiftly to carry out the orders from the United States.
“Palestinians are deeply grateful to ESCWA’s director, Dr. Rima Khalaf, who preferred to resign in dignity than to surrender her principles to US-Israeli bullying.
Khalaf’s resignation, under pressure to suppress factual and legal findings unfavorable to Israel, will send a chilling message to other UN officials that they are better off serving those in power than in upholding any mandate to advance human rights and respect for international law.
This is not the first time the UN protect Israeli war crimes. There are more than 100 UN resolutions on Israeli war crimes. None implemented .They are all collecting dust in UN archives.
However UN was quick to impose sanctions on Muslim countries and cause unprecedented misery including death. In fact former US Secretary of State Madeline Albright even justified UN sanctions killing more than 500,000 Iraqi children.
To cite yet another example UN failed to implement its own report on Israeli war crimes during its 2008/2009 military strikes on Palestinians in Gaza.
Under the circumstance no one dare talk about Jewish war crimes and confront the mafia style Jewish lobbies which rule US, Britain, France and other European countries. This is the reason why President Obama asked UN Secretary General Ban ki Moon to ignore the report to please his Jewish masters.
The UN prepared two reports on Israeli war crimes during its invasion of Gaza between December 27th 2008 to January 18th 2009 .First one was by UN High Commissioner for Human Rights Navi Pillay while the second was by South African jurist Richard Goldstone who presented his report in mid September 2009.
In her reports UNHCR Commissioner Navi Pillay lambasted the "nearly total impunity" for the violations. She stated that” there is significant evidence that Israeli forces violated international law and human rights in their invasion of Gaza compounded by the blockade that the population of Gaza endured prior to Operation Cast Lead and which continues”.
These observations were reiterated by yet another UN Fact-Finding Mission report which concluded that Israel committed “war crimes and possibly crimes against humanity”.
The members of the Fact Finding Mission were: Justice Richard Goldstone, Head of Mission; former judge of the Constitutional Court of South Africa; former Prosecutor of the International Criminal Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda.
The report, named as Goldstone report, found that the Israeli military strikes destroyed houses, factories, wells, schools, hospitals, police stations and other public buildings. Families lived amid the rubble of their former homes long after the attacks ended, as reconstruction has been impossible due to the continuing blockade. More than 1,400 people were killed during the military operation.
It’s not so easy to dismiss these findings. For one thing, the report is carefully documented and comprehensive, and is based on field visits, public hearings, almost 200 individual interviews, photos, videos, satellite imagery and a review of more than 300 other reports. For another, its head, Goldstone, is one of the most respected and experienced international jurists, having served as a justice on South Africa's Constitutional Court and chief UN prosecutor for the International Criminal Tribunals for the former Yugoslavia and Rwanda.
In fact Goldstone himself Jewish and, according to his daughter, is a “Zionist, loves Israel and serves on the Board of Governors of Hebrew University.
However, to the shock of the international community, the US rejected the UN Missions’ report. Another report stated that the Obama administration refused to allow the Goldstone report to reach the International Criminal Court and was ready to use the U.S. veto at the U.N. Security Council.
While the international community was trying to bring Israel to book in a disgraceful move typical of Palestine Authority Mahmoud Abbas helped Israel bury its crimes in Gaza and sold the Palestinians whom he claim to represent. Ali Abunimah, had this to state in the The Electronic Intifada, stated on 2 October 2009;
The Abbas delegation to the United Nations in Geneva (officially representing the moribund Palestine Liberation Organization) sunk to the lowest ebb when it abandoned a resolution requesting the Human Rights Council to forward Judge Richard Goldstone's report on war crimes in Gaza to the UN Security Council for further action.
The PA's betrayal of the Palestinian people over the Goldstone report, as well as its continued "security coordination" with Israel to suppress resistance and political activity in the West Bank, should banish all doubt that it is an active arm of the Israeli occupation doing tangible and escalating harm to the Palestinian people and their just cause.
As a result Goldstone report is gathering dust today in UN shelves and no one talks about Israeli war crimes.
Zionist Jews have established their tentacles in almost every field in US and Europe and last week two British universities have cancelled events planned for the launch of former UN Special Rapporteur for Palestine Richard Falk’s new book.
The professor of international law was scheduled to speak about his new book, “Palestine’s Horizon”, in Middlesex University. But two British universities, East London and Middlesex, have cancelled events planned for the launch of former UN Special Rapporteur for Palestine Richard Falk’s new book.
Middlesex University press officer told MEMO that “concerns over safety” prompted the decision to cancel the event. Falk was the co-author of a new UN report which concludes that “beyond a reasonable doubt … Israel is guilty of imposing an apartheid regime on the Palestinian people”.
Speaking at a MEMO event on Monday, Falk said rather than an “occupation”, which he views as an inaccurate term partly due to the length of time that Israel has now held on to the territories conquered in the 1967 war, he affirmed that instead Israel should now be called an “apartheid state”. Ends
