The United Nations is Antisemitic, Worse Than Useless, and Should Be Disbanded

The United Nations spends much of its time passing anti-Israel resolutions. The UN is an antisemitic, anti-Zionist, anti-Western, and anti-democratic organization that outlived its usefulness decades ago. It should be disbanded, and the United States should lead the charge in defunding the UN until the UN is disbanded.

As just the most recent example of the evil that has infected the UN, in the wake of Hamas' October 7, 2023 mass casualty terrorist attack against Israel the UN is not condemning Hamas and seeking the immediate unconditional release of the hostages that Hamas is holding in Gaza and using as human shields, nor is the UN actively speaking out about Hamas' brutality toward Israeli women.

No, instead the UN--via the International Court of Justice, one of its main operational units--is putting Israel on trial for genocide. This would be a laughable farce were it not just the latest outgrowth of the malignant and vile evil that poisons the UN beyond any hope of redemption. Israel, the tiny (less than twice the size of L.A. County) homeland of the Jewish people--the victims of Nazi genocide--is not being supported in her fight against Iran and the Islamists who seek to destroy Israel but rather is being slandered while antisemitism is soaring around the world. It is not an exaggeration to say that the UN is putting Jewish lives at risk by leveling false and inflammatory charges against the Jewish State.

Contrary to what is often asserted, Israel never turned Gaza into an "open air prison," nor is Israel committing war crimes by fighting against the Iranian-sponsored terrorist group Hamas that uses Gazan civilians as human shields.

It is often said that a picture is worth a thousand words. If that is true, then here are 4000 words on behalf of just four of the over 130 hostages being held by Hamas in Gaza (these are screenshots of Instagram posts by the Israel on Campus Coalition and Tanya Zuckerbrot):

I declared nearly three years ago that "Never Again" must be a rallying cry, not a slogan:
Holocaust denial often consists not only of denying that the Nazis murdered six million Jews, but also falsely accusing Israel of committing genocide. This breathtaking and perverse act of double historical revisionism during the living memory of the Holocaust is an outrage that defies description. The truth is that not only is the Holocaust the most well-documented genocide in history, but Adolf Hitler announced his murderous plans in advance, and the world was well aware of what the Nazis were doing; the information was available, but many media outlets downplayed what was known, and many governments--including the U.S. government--closed their borders to the few Jews who were fortunate enough to escape the Nazis; the sad saga of the S.S. St. Louis--a ship full of more than 900 Jewish refugees who were refused entry to the United States and sent back to Europe to meet their fate at the hands of the Nazis--is just one example of how the world turned its back on the Jewish people during the Holocaust.

Hamas members proudly recorded their genocidal crimes against Israel just three months ago, yet the UN ignores those genocidal crimes while falsely accusing Israel of genocide. The world will not become a better place unless and until we fight every day to make it a better place. What the UN is doing harms not only Israel and the Jewish people, but also other victims of genocide whose plight is being ignored while the UN targets Israel and the Jewish people. The UN is giving aid and comfort to China--whose ongoing persecution of Uighur Muslims arouses no sympathy among self-proclaimed "progressives"--and many other countries (including but not limited to Russia and Iran) that are inflicting suffering on defenseless people. 

Even if you don't give a damn about Israel and the Jewish people, you should understand with crystal clarity that the evils of commission and omission committed by the UN are a direct threat to your freedom; the Jewish people have always been the proverbial canary in the coal mine, and it does not take long for those who target the Jews to target everyone else (Adolf Hitler is the classic example of this truth).

Speak out against evil.

Silence is complicity, and I will never be silent.

    Yes, that lawsuit against Harvard is a good start. Hopefully, the plaintiffs will win, and Harvard will be forced to make amends for its sins.
