Can We Get The UN Out Of The US?

The United States should no longer host the United Nations. Not only do some UN diplomats abuse their diplomatic immunity from our laws but the UN tries to meddle in the affairs of United States citizens - most recently trying to arrange a treaty that could make ownership of individual firearms illegal.

The UN involves itself in wars around the world and sometimes takes the wrong side, as in the conflict between Israel and Hamas in Gaza. Yesterday, the UN said that Israel's possession of their Iron Dome missile defense system, which has prevented a majority of Hamas rockets from actually killing people on the ground, may constitute a war crime against the Palestinian civilians because Hamas does not have the same technology. They also criticized the U.S. for helping fund Israel's Iron Dome system which has saved countless Israeli and Palestinian lives. "No such protection has been provided to Gazans against the shelling," said UN Chairwoman Navi Pillay, a known Israel critic.

Just because Hamas fires rockets indiscriminately aimed at Israeli civilian population centers without provocation and fires them from within its own population centers does not absolve Israel from its own legal violations, Pillay basically told reporters. I guess she feels the same way as that idiot on MSNBC last week who said that Israel's Iron Dome defense shield "isn't fair" to Hamas since they don't have one.

So the UN is still condemning Israel for defending itself and its people and criticizing them for using a defense system that Hamas doesn't have. And they're criticizing the United States for helping to fund that system because we are allied with Israel.

I would remind the UN (and all others who think it's "just not fair" that when you pick a fight with someone who is bigger, stronger, better trained, better equipped and more determined than you - it's not often a fair fight. But if you're the one who starts it you have no right to complain.

The UN Human Rights Council has long been critical of Israel. According to Breitbart:

While Israel is the only country in the world that remains a standing agenda item at every (UNHRC) session, the human rights body has to date said nothing about the recent Russian-backed shooting down of Malaysian Airlines Flight 17 over Ukraine, nor has it condemned the ongoing mass killings in Syria or South Sudan. North Korea, China, Pakistan, Syria, Sudan, or Iran, all recent or current members of the council, have never been condemned by it.

The UNHRC has never formally mentioned “Hamas” by name, let alone condemned it.

The UN has their own agenda that is not necessarily favorable for all countries involved. Their stance against Israel protecting itself proves that. I'd be OK if we kicked them out of the US and quit the UN altogether. But I know it won't happen.

How about instead of threatening Israel with war crimes for using their defense shield the UN charge Obama with them instead? After all - it's better to go after the dealer than the user. Just sayin'...
