United Nations

The domino effect which is crashing down on the UN

U.N. building.

It has been a political cock-up of massive proportions. I am sure Murray McCully and PM Bill English expected this all to happen quietly during the holiday period. They were counting on both the American and the New Zealand media ignoring it. Instead the public have been made aware of their machinations in league with communist Venezuela and backstabber in Chief, Barack Hussein Obama and the reaction has set off a chain of events, (a domino effect ) that they would never have expected to happen in their wildest dreams.

Congress is already setting the stage to cut off U.S. funding to the United Nations in the wake of a contested vote last week in which the Obama administration permitted an anti-Israel resolution to win overwhelming approval, according to congressional leaders, who told the Washington Free Beacon that the current administration is already plotting to take further action against the Jewish state before vacating office.

Cutting off U.S.funding is only one of the many domino counters that are currently crashing their way towards the United Nations.

These are the “moderate” friends of McCully

 

Three days ago Fatah’s official Facebook page posted a drawing of its map of “Palestine,” which includes all of Israel and painted like the Palestinian flag, being used to stab the word “settlement.” The text above the image: “#Palestine will defeat the settlement ”

Yesterday in response to the UN Security Council resolution declaring Israeli settlements illegal, Fatah republished the identical image but added a pool of blood at the bottom, and the words “Thank You” above the image, and the names of the 14 countries that voted in favour of the UN resolution.

Breitbart reports:

Following the passage of an anti-Israel resolution at the United Nations, Palestinian Authority President Mahmoud Abbas’ Fatah party posted a cartoon on its official Facebook page on Saturday, featuring a large knife stabbing “settlements” and the words “Thank You” to the countries that voted for the resolution.   Read more »

Has Obama unwittingly sunk the UN?

Barack Obama’s last days in office have been a travesty. His plan to stab Israel by refusing the veto may have unwittingly opened the door for Donald Trump to have a crack at draining the UN swamp at Turtle Bay.

Roger L. Simon at PJ Media explains:

We live in a world of unintended consequences and Barack Obama, in his overwhelming zeal to exact last-minute personal vengeance on Bibi Netanyahu in particular and Israel in general with Friday’s Security Council vote, opened the door to the defunding and serious diminution of the United Nations itself.

Donald Trump — who is seeking to spend a ton of taxpayer money on rebuilding our military and infrastructure — is undoubtedly looking for places to save. Nowhere would be better to start than that moribund center of international corruption and megaphone for tin-pot dictators, the United Nations.

What started out after World War II as the idealistic coming together of nations to end war ended up being one of the giant ripoffs of all time.  The UN oil-for-food scandal during the Iraq War showed how extreme it had become.  The UN committee’s own report…

….accused nearly half of the 4,500 participating companies of paying kickbacks and illegal surcharges to win lucrative contracts, and allowing Saddam Hussein to pocket $1.8 billion at the expense of Iraqis suffering under UN economic sanctions. The commission’s lead investigator, former U.S. Federal Reserve Chairman  Paul Volcker, stated that it was UN mismanagement and failure of the world’s most powerful nations to end corruption in the program that allowed Saddam to fill his coffers.

“UN mismanagement” isn’t the half of it.  It was unbridled corruption on the part of UN leadership with some of the masterminds fleeing the country, checks in hand, to places like Beijing.

Meanwhile, this “peaceful” organization that has had no effect whatsoever on ending war spends most of its working hours bashing the state of Israel.  In 2015 alone the UN General Assembly adopted 20 resolutions singling out Israel for criticism — and only 3 resolutions on the rest of the world combined.

And what does the U.S. taxpayer fork over for participating in this global society for slanderous garbage?  $3.04 billion in 2015, to be exact.  Now admittedly that’s not as much as Barack Obama has been shoveling to Iran’s mullahs, but it’s still a lot.

Ooops McCully and English just got bitch slapped

English and McCully took their thirty pieces of silver in trade or whatever blood money inducement Muslim countries gave them and with Obama’s blessing attacked Israel. However, there is a new sheriff in town  America and he and his mates don’t take kindly to little shits like New Zealand giving the Middle East’s only true democracy the finger.

Israel set to impose sanctions on NZ

Murray McCully’s stupidity is set to cost New Zealand. Israel is gearing up for sanctions against New Zealand now.

Haaretz reports:

Israel rejects the UN Security Council’s anti-settlement resolution out of hand and has no intention of abiding by it, the Prime Minister’s Bureau said late Friday, accusing Obama of “colluding” against Israel. The United States, a permanent member of the council, abstained from the vote.

“Israel rejects the contemptible, anti-Israel UN resolution and will not subordinate itself to it,” the bureau said.

Israel said it will impose sanctions on two states that pushed for the UN Security Council resolution against Israeli settlements. Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu ordered the Israeli ambassadors in New Zealand and Senegal for consultation. Israel does not have diplomatic ties with the two other states that called for a vote on the resolution – Venezuela and Malaysia.

The prime minister’s bureau said that Netanyahu has canceled an impending visit of the Senegalese foreign minister to Israel, and ordered the Foreign Ministry to void all planned aid to the country. He also canceled the visits of the non-resident ambassadors from Senegal and New Zealand.   Read more »

NZ’s shame: McCully sides with terrorists and votes against democracy

The last remaining thing holding me to supporting National at the next election is now gone.

Murray McCully has engineered a vote against Israel standing with countries like Venezuela, Senegal and Malaysia to pass a resolution against Israel in the UN Security Council.

New Zealand has just announced to the world that we prefer terrorists and anti-democratic, theocratic dictatorships to vibrant Western-style democracy.

Israel knows what New Zealand has done, they have recalled their ambassador such is the insult to them by New Zealand.

The Israeli Government has recalled its ambassador from New Zealand after the UN Security Council passed a resolution condemning Israel’s continued settlements.

New Zealand co-sponsored the resolution, which said the settlements violate international law and undermine a two-state solution in Israel’s conflict with Palestine.

Malaysia, Senegal and Venzuela also sponsored the resolution and are likely to face diplomatic reprisals too.

Foreign Minister Murray McCully told the Herald he spoke to Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu before the vote and Netanyahu told him the ambassador would be recalled if the vote passed.

McCully said he had been informed the ambassador had been recalled “for consultations”.

“It underscores the fact that Israel is strongly opposed to the council position on the issue. That is not a great surprise to us.

“But we hope that the friendship that has existed between the two countries will be able to endure regardless of different view on this issue.”

McCully now aligning NZ with Venezuela, Malaysia, and Senegal instead of USA and Israel

On Thursday Egypt withdrew a resolution condemning Israel at the UN after Israeli lobbying and a tweet from president-elect Trump. New Zealand has now joined forces with Venezuela, Malaysia, and Senegal to pressure Egypt to continue with the anti-Israel resolution.

McCully continues to side with anti-democratic nations and abuse our UNSC seat, presumably for Saudi and Persian  “trade deals”. Bill English needs to step in where John Key wouldn’t and remind McCully that NZ should be standing up for our Western values and that we will need to work with Trump.

Times of Israel reports:

Four countries have reportedly issued Egypt with an ultimatum, threatening to bring forward a UN Security Council resolution on West Bank settlement activity if Cairo does not reintroduce the draft, hours after it was suddenly shelved.

In a note, New Zealand, Venezuela, Malaysia and Senegal gave Egypt until the end of Thursday to clarify how it intended to proceed, Reuters reported.

“In the event that Egypt decides that it cannot proceed to call for vote on 23 December or does not provide a response by the deadline, those delegations reserve the right to table the draft … and proceed to put it to vote ASAP,” the note read, according to the report.   Read more »

The Donald sides with Israel, says dopey resolutions should be vetoed

Donald Trump is proving to be a good friend of Israel.

He has called for the resolutions against Israel at the UN to be vetoed, in particular, the Egyptian resolution, which has now been withdrawn.

As of approximately 10:00 a.m. ET, the Jerusalem Post reports that the Egyptian government, which was the first to circulate the anti-Israel draft resolution, has abandoned its plan to proceed with the U.N. Security Council resolution concerning Israeli settlements.

Egypt’s Fattah al-Sisi introduced the draft on Wednesday, but sources, clearly ones not happy with his decision, told the Jerusalem Post that he “caved” to Israel pressure. Perhaps al Sisi simply knows that life will be made infinitely more difficult for those who stand against Israel following Donald Trump’s inauguration on January 20, 2017.    Read more »

Ban Ki Moon and McCully admit their bias against Israel, do nothing about it anyway

Shalom.Kiwi reports:

The Secretary General of the United Nations, Ban Ki-moon, has used his final speech at the UN Security Council to admit that the organisation he heads is biased against Israel. He said

Decades of political maneuverings have created a disproportionate volume of resolutions, reports and conferences criticizing Israel. In many cases, rather than helping the Palestinian cause, this reality has hampered the ability of the UN to fulfill its role effectively.” – Ban Ki-moon

The Israeli Ambassador to the UN, Danny Danon, reacted to the admission by saying

During this time the UN passed 223 resolutions condemning Israel while only eight resolutions condemning the Syrian regime as it has massacred its citizens over the past six years. This is absurd. With a new secretary-general set to take office next month, we look forward to the possibility of a new era of fairness at the UN.” – Danny Danon   Read more »

Comment of the Day

Murray McCully is off to the UN to try to push what he calls a solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict.

This is real “peace in our time” stuff from McCully.

But our commenter and moderator Isherman raises interesting points:

So Murray McCully is off to New York for what will be his last meeting of the UN Security Council before our term on that body ends.

“We are focused on working right up to the last day, and while in New York I will participate in the quarterly open debate on the Middle East, which will include a briefing from outgoing UN Sec. General Ban Ki Moon and a ministerial level debate on non-proliferation hosted by the new Foreign Minister of Spain.”

What Murray hasn’t said or been publicly promoting, or our media covering, is that New Zealand is also circulating a draft resolution on the Israeli-Palestinian issue.   Read more »
