The United Nations was created in the aftermath of World War II and the horrors of the Shoah. The United Nations’ Charter proclaims that its mission is to “save succeeding generations from the scourge of war… and to reaffirm faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person, in the equal rights of men and women and of nations large and small.” Frankly, the UN has not lived up to its lofty promise. A cursory glance around the world reveals countless wars, conflicts, hunger, disease and even genocide. The UN has proved largely ineffective on three important issues of the day: Iran’s nuclear aspirations, Hizballah terror in Lebanon, and the genocide occurring in Darfur. On the subject of Israel and the Jews, the UN record has been exceptionally troubling. Although the United Nations helped create the modern State of Israel, there has been little good news from Turtle Bay for Israel and the Jews since.
