As I was preparing the most recent Shamrak Report for publication, I decided to check out one of the links contained therein and found myself once again disturbed by the utter depravity of this world's so-called politically correct, non discriminatory humanitarian ideologues. The article to which I refer is called Hot mic catches UN interpreter saying anti-Israel votes are 'a bit much' from which I now quote the reference which first attracted my attention:
Under the mistaken impression that she was speaking only to colleagues, the interpreter uttered the following words into the headphones of every UN delegate, and before a live webcast audience worldwide:
"I think when you have... like a total of ten resolutions on Israel and Palestine, there's gotta be something, c'est un peu trop, non? [It's a bit much, no?] I mean I know... There's other really bad shit happening, but no one says anything about the other stuff."
Laughter erupted among the delegates. "The interpreter apologizes," said the unfortunate truth-teller, moments later, followed by her audible gasp. I sincerely hope she won't get fired.
Well that certainly was a 'faux pas' n'est pas? But as I continued to read the article, I discovered that what was 'funny' in the report was certainly not 'funny.' Take this for example:
Today's nine resolutions, adopted by the GA's 4th committee, which is comprised of all 193 UN member states, condemned Israel for violating the human rights of Palestinians in the West Bank and Gaza, of Palestinian refugees, and even of Syrians in the Golan Heights.
That's right: the UN adopted a resolution today that mentions the word "Syria" no less than 10 times--yet said nothing of Syrian President Bashar al-Assad's massacre of more than 100,000 of his own people.
As it will soon do again by a second, redundant resolution on the Golan, the General Assembly today called on Israel to hand over the Golan Heights, and its citizens, to Syria.
Now, whatever one's view on who rightfully owns the Golan, for the UN at this particular moment to call for anyone to be handed over to Assad's rule--even as his massacres continue unabated--is both logically absurd and morally obscene. With Israeli hospitals now treating dozens of Syrians who escaped their country's bloodbath, the resolution is simply surreal.
It didn't get any funnier when the author of this article Hillel Neuer (executive director of UN Watch, a non-governmental human rights organization in Geneva, Switzerland) wrote the following:
Last week I was at UN headquarters in New York with courageous human rights dissidents from China, Cuba, Russia and Saudi Arabia. UN Watch helped organize a press conference to plead for UN member states to oppose those repressive regimes' cynical candidacies for seats on the UN Human Rights Council. Yet despite their abysmal records, these serial human rights abusers were all elected by the UNGA, to become the world's newest judges on human rights.
Needless to say, this same UN assembly will not be passing any resolutions this year on China's subjugation of the Tibetan people or its imprisonment of pro-democracy activist Wang Bingzhang, on Cuba's violent harassment of journalists and bloggers, on Russia's persecution of gays, or on Saudi Arabia's laws banning women from driving and non-Muslims from practicing their religion.
In 2008 I published an article which I recently re-published, titled: The United Nations, Iran and Israel in which I said "
The United Nations Organisation as a title seems certainly to be oxymoronic, and it definitely seems to be the case that the lunatics are running the asylum."
In 2011 in another article titled Does the U N Mourn its Loss? in mentioning Colonel Muammar Gaddafi who in 2003 was voted chairman of the United Nations Human Rights Commission, I stated: "
Anyone with a little intellect knew that the appointment was a farce but farce is standard fare for the U.N."
In United Nations Rising Hypocrisy I wrote:
"It seems rather strange that the United Nations staff fear for their lives, when in Palestine at least, the United Nations (and the rest of the world so it seems), thinks that all the problems, violence and poverty in Palestine are caused solely by Israel, and that Palestinian 'soldiers' are brave freedom fighters."
In 2005 whilst studying in Wuhan City China, I was talking with a group of Muslims from Middle Eastern countries and I asked them what would happen if Israel agreed to all the demands placed on it. They burst out laughing and said: 'There would be no Israel!'
I for one simply cannot understand why it is that people who would like to be known as 'humanitarians'; as 'non-discriminatory' individuals; as 'lovers of justice,' are not people who love truth, but are people who love self-righteous ideology. Perhaps there is something to be said for the writings of Saint Paul in Romans Chapter One where he says:
(v21) Because that, when they knew God, they glorified him not as God, neither were thankful; but became vain in their imaginations, and their foolish heart was darkened. (v22) Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools, (v25) Who changed the truth of God into a lie, and worshipped and served the creature more than the Creator, who is blessed for ever. Amen.
I think that Hillel Neuer's article, pointing out as it does that human rights abusers are elected by the UN to become judges on human rights, is sufficient evidence that the United Nations does not stand for anything remotely resembling honesty and justice, and its hypocritical calls for such, loudly demonstrates that the letters "U.N." are just the brand name of a product which once opened, turns out to be nothing more that L-i-e-s!

'Violent death at the hands of 'ordinary' citizens' does not automatically mean as it does in the link above, that some person has physically bashed someone to death, but as can be found from time to time in the media, it can mean kids killing themselves because they can no longer cope with the downright 'ugly and abusive' behavior of 'ordinary citizens,' - citizens like 'YOUR' kids. How often have you heard someone say "I'm going to destroy him/her?" They really mean it until someone actually does die.

Shock and Horrors and Smug Vindication

Over the last five years anyone who has stood up to declare that there is something 'amiss' about President Obama has been howled down as a 'racist.' One cannot say anything negative about the man because he is 'black' and to do so constitutes 'racism.' But many have withstood the accusations, and one of these was a writer here at Magic City by the name of J. Grant Swank - a religious minister. Well! Enough said! Crackpot, blind fool fundamentalist! What would he know! Rev. Swank took a lot of heat from a lot of people, but in view of Jim Kouri's report listed above I have listed below just three articles that Rev. Swank published about Obama. I leave it to you to determine if he was on the money or not.
