UN Fails Again
Three Cheers for John Bolton. This is exactly why GWB sent John Bolton to the UN, to call them on their Fecklessness, hypocrisy, and corruption.
U.S. Ambassador to the United Nations John Bolton issued a statement
Tuesday unequivocally condemning the bomb attack in the Israeli town of Netanya
that killed at least five people. The unusual action came after a U.S. attempt
to have the statement issued by the Security Council was rejected.
Diplomats attending the meeting say several Council members raised concerns
about language in the U.S.-drafted document. Ambassador Bolton, however, blamed
Algeria for quashing the measure by objecting to a passage urging Syria to close
offices of the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, which claims responsibility for the attack. "Other governments had questions about particular language. We were perfectly prepared to engage in discussions about constructive suggestions, but Algeria categorically refused to name Syria and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad," he said.
The U.S. envoy later read the text of the statement to reporters, and lashed out at the Council for what he called "failing to speak the truth".
He said "you have to speak up in response to these terrorist attacks.
It's a great shame that the Security Council couldn't speak to this terrorist
attack in Netanya, but if the Council won't speak, the United States
Wait Algeria refuses to name Syria and the Palestinian Islamic Jihad?
Islamic Jihad has claimed responsibility for the attack and promises more to come! Syria openly not only allows them have offices in Syria but financially supports them. And here was the reply from the anti-Semitic terrorist supporting / enabling members of the UN:
Algeria's U.N. Ambassador Abdallah Baali said he had objected to what he called a "lack of balance" in the U.S.-drafted statement. He noted that Russia and other countries had also raised concerns about the tone of the document.
In other words "it was only a bunch of Jews" that these murderers blew up. Balance? What Balance? A terrorist organization planned, executed, and bragged about killing innocent people. It is disgusting.
Does any one remember the hew and cry from the mealy mouthed Democrats on Boltons Nominations? They were so afraid of him "offending" members of the U.N. Well I AM OFFENDED WHEN TERRORISTS BLOW PEOPLE UP. The UN members who protect them need to be offended, they need to be shamed. If this does not stop either they or we need to leave the UN.
