Decades ago, when I still naively believed that the UN was an organization that would preserve world peace, I knew that certain Evangelical Christians believed it to be a harbinger of the Anti-Christ’s One World government, and a precursor to the End of Days. How I laughed at their religious foolishness. I’m not laughing now. Since I’m Jewish, I don’t have a religious frame of reference for an Anti-Christ. Nevertheless, I’ve concluded that the Evangelical’s long-standing hostility t the UN is absolutely right — the UN is irredeemably evil.
If you’d like lots of details about just how bad the UN is, you can make regular visits to Eye on the UN. If you’d like just one recent story about how evil the UN is, you can read about its supporting and covering up for Hezbollah when it kidnapped Israelis in the past. Or you can read Kofi Annan’s wild accusations when four UN operative, functioning in a war zone, were killed:
A diplomatic furor erupted Wednesday after four U.N. observers died in southern Lebanon in what the U.N. secretary-general said was an “apparently deliberate” Israeli airstrike.
Israel angrily denied the accusation.
The U.N. observers were killed when an Israeli bomb made a direct hit on their bunker in southern Lebanon on Tuesday. They had called an Israeli military liaison about 10 times in the six hours before they died to warn that the aerial attacks were getting close to their position, according to a U.N. officer. (Full story)
Lebanese security sources told CNN Wednesday at least three precision-guided bombs were dropped by Israeli aircraft on the U.N. observers’ bunker.
A Western diplomat familiar with preliminary U.N. assessments of the scene also said that it appeared the munition that hit the bunker was precision-guided.
But Israeli Foreign Minister Tzipi Livni denied that the strike was deliberate.
“Of course it was not a deliberate action,” she said.
Israeli Foreign Ministry spokesman Mark Regev said Israeli Prime Minister Ehud Olmert called U.N. Secretary-General Kofi Annan and “expressed his regret at this tragedy in Lebanon.”
Kofi Annan is a fool and a malevolent one at that. Israel would never have been foolish enough, temptation notwithstanding, to target the UN. However, if in a fantasy world Israel did decide to target the UN, on the theory that it is one of her worst and most dangerous enemies, my suggestion would be that should ignore little outposts, and target Annan directly. What a dreadful, corrupt, morally-bereft human being he is.
UPDATE: It turns out that Israel probably had a good reason for aiming its guns in the direction of the UN outpost:
Another UN position of the Ghanaian battalion in the area of Marwahin in the western sector was also directly hit by one mortar round from the Hezbollah side last night. The round did not explode, and there were no casualties or material damage. Another 5 incidents of firing close to UN positions from the Israeli side were reported yesterday. It was also reported that Hezbollah fired from the vicinity of four UN positions at Alma ash Shab, Tibnin, Brashit, and At Tiri. All UNIFIL positions remain occupied and maintained by the troops.
Now, given the UN’s tight relationship with Hezbollah in the past, one rather wonders whether the UN operatives were either (a) invited to position themselves in what might have been a safe spot near the UN or (b) asked to leave if they unilaterally decided to camp out near the UN.
Hat tip: Little Green Footballs, which also bolded the appropriate language.
UPDATE II: Michelle Malkin has more on the cozy relationship between the UN and Hezbollah.
