COMMENT POSTED TO AN ARTICLE IN ELECTRONIC INTIFADA
Rima Khalaf, the head of the Economic and Social Commission for Western Asia (ESCWA) which published the report, announced her resignation at a press conference in Beirut on Friday.
Reuters reports that Khalaf took the step “after what she described as pressure from the secretary-general to withdraw a report accusing Israel of imposing an ‘apartheid regime’ on Palestinians.”
“I resigned because it is my duty not to conceal a clear crime, and I stand by all the conclusions of the report,”
There is simply no end to American dominance and abuse of the UN.
The earth’s other 95% of humanity has been deprived of its voice in international affairs through American manipulation and threats and blackmail at the UN.
American diplomats of the lowlife character of Madeline Albright and Samantha Power have seen to that.
The effort was helped considerably by America’s previous unilateral refusal to pay its treaty-determined dues until it got its way, threatening the UN’s very existence.
Recent Secretaries-General have no independence or character at all. Ban Ki-Moon was almost a joke, a kind of Monty Python-like American creature loyally and obviously serving America’s interests.
Of course, one of the main beneficiaries of all America’s international dirty work at the UN is America’s Middle East colony, otherwise known as Israel.
The never-ending dirty game of telling people what to say or getting rid of them when they don’t comply tells us all we need to know of American-Israeli principles.
We know that both Nelson Mandela and Bishop Tutu described what they saw in Israel as apartheid, and their view was seconded by the most honest American President of the century, Jimmy Carter. Of course, Carter’s honesty was rewarded by being widely labelled as anti-Semitic in McCarthy-like attacks.
