Actually, the nations of the world haven't really ever been united. So even
the name 'United Nations' is wrong. Wishful thinking .. but wrong.
This is an interesting article. The author states that the United Nations is
failing miserably and he explains why. It entertains resolutions and notions
that most of us in the west don't pay attention to. Basically it is a useless paper
tiger that is falling prey to religious fanatics.
The author is historian David Littman. He is a representative to the United Nations
(Geneva) of the Association for World Education. He says - “In recent years,
representatives of some Muslim states have demanded, and often received,
special treatment at the United Nations.” This has caused problems such as
non-diplomatic terms like ‘blasphemy’ and ‘defamation of Islam’ becoming
part of the United Nations system. This causes non-Muslim governments to accept
certain rules of conduct in conformity with Islamic law (the Shari’a). Also the
CDHRI (Islamic Conference of Foreign Ministers Cairo Declaration on Human
Rights in Islam) has become 'a quotable source' at the UN. Further he states that
the OIC (Organization of Islamic Conference) has imposed new rules of conduct
and has an 'exceptional status' at the UN that has no legal basis and no precedent.
Part of the code of conduct is a prohibition of discussion about certain political
aspect of Islam.
This is the conspiracy ... all the garbage notions and attempted resolutions that we
in the west don't hear about. Even when we hear about them they seem so far
fetched that we don't believe that they could actually be happening. But they are.
Does the UN purposely play them down or even not discuss them for the Western
audience? I think so. If we all knew what was really going on in the UN - all the
stupid attempted resolutions; illegal backroom deals; incompetence; etc - we'd not
be wanting to send our tax money there to support it. That frightens them. The
free ride would be over.
One of the latest happenings in the UN - The Islamic nations want it to be
against UN Law to mock Islam. While it may be in poor taste to mock a persons
religious beliefs, it is against freedom of speech to make it a law. In other words -
they want no more anti-Muhammad cartoons in Denmark or anywhere else.
And then there is the quote from the UN about how they want to control the
internet to 'insure access to the entire world'.
Like the UN is capable of
doing that? Capitalistic societies have a better shot at that. And what would tribal
nomads in the deserts of Africa want with the internet anyways??
If the UN had concentrated on ending slavery in Africa (which is still a flourishing
trade!) instead of taking 'Oil for Food' bribes perhaps it would have had a chance
at being a legitimate entity to help bring about world peace. As it is, it is just as
corrupt and disgusting as the other political systems in the world.
Anyways ... read the article and see what you think. The author makes sense IMHO.
