Netanyahu: The U.N. Is a Global ‘Moral Farce’

netanyahu-unWashington Free Beacon, by Jack Heretic, Sept.22, 2016:

Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu castigated the United Nations on Thursday in a speech to the U.N. General Assembly, calling the organization a “moral farce.”

After stating that he believes Israel has a bright future with the U.N., Netanyahu gave a scathing indictment of the international institution for having a bias against the Jewish state.

“Year after year, I’ve stood at this very podium and slammed the U.N. for its obsessive bias against Israel and the U.N. deserved every scathing word,” Netanyahu said. “For the disgrace of the General Assembly, that last year passed 20 resolutions against the democratic state of Israel and a grand total of three resolutions against all the other countries on the planet. Israel: 20, rest of the world: three.”

Netanyahu then lambasted two other U.N. entities, the Human Rights Council and the Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO).

“And what about the joke called the U.N. Human Rights Council, which each year condemns Israel more than all the other countries of the world combined. As women are being systematically raped, murdered, sold into slavery across the world, which is the only country that the U.N.’s Commission on Women chose to condemn this year? Yep, you guessed it, Israel,” Netanyahu said. “Israel, where women fly fighter jets, lead major corporations, head universities, preside, twice, over the Supreme Court, and have served as speaker of the Knesset and prime minister.”

“And this circus continues at UNESCO. UNESCO, the U.N. body charged with preserving world heritage,” he continued. “Now, this is hard to believe, but UNESCO just denied the 4,000-year connection between the Jewish people and its holiest site, the Temple Mount. That’s just as absurd as denying the connection between the Great Wall of China and China.”

Before addressing why he believes Israel has an optimistic future, citing in part the country’s robust technology sector and growing diplomatic ties around the world, Netanyahu delivered another scathing line against the international body.

“Ladies and gentlemen, the U.N., begun as a moral force, has become a moral farce.”

  1. Now that, ladies and gentlemen, is a man of superior character and integrity, a national leader not cowed by political correctness or the Islamists who seek the destruction of Israel and the death of all of us “infidels.” With force, conviction and the facts, Mr. Netanyahu accurately assesses the inane nature of the modern-day UN as “a moral farce!”

    God, I wish that America had a president with just half of his gravitas.

  2. Israelis are extremely lucky to have such an astounding, fearless and articulate leader in Bibi.
    Not a single Western leader is even equal to 10% of his abilities and love for his people. Western leaders have more concern for Muslims than their own citizens!

    What a speech! So much TRUTH regarding Israel’s survival AGAINST ALL ODDS!

    If only more African, Latin American and other none Muslim nations stand by her, the UN FARCE would change instantly.

    Israel outpaces the combined Muslim world of 57 nations in every field of human endeavor!

    0.1% of humanity OUTCLASSES 20% of humanity of Ummat Muhammad called Muslims. No wonder they want her DEAD! She shows the world how Depraved, Dissolute, Retrograde, Dysfunctional, Intolerant, Racist, Misogynist and Evil Islam is

    May Bibi lives long enough to see the UN siding with Israel

    IQ al Rassooli
    Kafir & Proud!
