UK muscles up against UN over Israel as well

The UK has muscled up against the UN over Israel as well now.

The push back is harsh, Breitbart reports:

As long as Israel remains a standing agenda item at the United Nations and “Syria’s regime butchers and murders its people on a daily basis” the UK will vote down any attempt to debate the future of the Jewish State.

This warning was made on Friday at the 31st session of the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHCR) by the UK mission in Geneva. It came as the UNHCR debated Israel’s conduct in the occupied Syrian and Palestinian territories.

In its history, the UNHCR has condemned Israel more often than any other of the 192 UN states. Comparative totals after Friday’s session in Geneva tell the story: Israel – 78 resolutions and decisions, Syria – 29, North Korea – 9, and Iran – 6. As for Saudi Arabia, Russia, and China, there’s nothing at all.

While it made clear its “serious concerns about the growth in illegal demolitions and settlement activity” and said the UK stood “shoulder to shoulder with the international community” in support of a two-state solution, the UK mission added the council’s “unacceptable pattern of bias” as evidenced by the sheer number of motions condemning the Jewish state would only make the goal harder to achieve.

The statement continued:

“The trend of Israeli conduct in the occupied Palestinian territories over the past year has been negative.

“But we must also recognise the continuing terrorism, incitement and violence that Israel faces. Renewed Hamas efforts to rebuild their tunnels are a grave concern. The scourge of anti-Semitic incitement and glorification of terrorism continue.

“And yet neither ‘terrorism’ nor ‘incitement’ were a focus of this week’s council discussions and resolutions. This is not acceptable.”

The mission also questioned why Israel was still a standing agenda item while “Syria’s regime butchers and murders its people on a daily basis”.

Friday’s vote marked a reversal of previous UK efforts to isolate Israel from the international community.

Good to see that the UK and the USA are using veto powers now for what they were intended…to stop bullying against small nations by vested interests.

The UN responsible for changing New Zealand’s immigration policy

A politically correct opinion piece on Islamic immigration to New Zealand in The Dominion Post got lots of comments. Interestingly despite the politically correct stance taken by the writer the majority of commenters disagreed with what he said. It made me realise that Whaleoil readers are not the only New Zealanders who can see what folly it is to import a culture, religion and political ideology so at odds with everything we hold dear. We are not the only New Zealanders who have observed what happens in other Western countries when they import an ideology that thinks homosexuals should be killed, that women are second class and that want to spread their laws and values to New Zealand rather than assimilate to our laws and values.

The article interested me because it inadvertently explained that we had a sensible immigration policy until the United Nations put pressure on our government. Believe it or not, our governments all had sensible immigration policies until the United Nations opened New Zealand up to Muslim immigration.

…Discrimination on the basis of ethnicity and religion characterised New Zealand’s immigration and refugee policy until the late 1980s. The country wanted British immigrants. Small numbers of refugees from the Middle East began arriving in New Zealand from the late 1970s, comprising people of Baha’i and Christian backgrounds.

Guest Post: National you can count me out, my future vote does not go with you

GuestPost: Max Sky is a retired NZ/Australian Entrepreneur and Company CEO with international jurisdiction, specifically Australia, New Zealand, Germany, China and Britain.

His continuing political and historic research is generated on a need to know basis, born through the want of attempting to validate the facts to acknowledge and share his conclusions.
Max is a confessed stalwart for Whaleoil and its continued expansion and longevity.

Sharia Islam is infiltrating and taking over western civilisation by confronting us with an ideology that overrides evidence by distorting and falsifying it for its own ends. What is ironic is that for some time the West in Britain and Europe and under Obama in the USA has been doing exactly the same process. By the West advocating man-made global warming, isolating Israel, supporting Iran and ignoring other blatant atrocities, the west has replaced truth with ideology.

Sharia Islam is our enemy that has declared war upon reason, and now that the West is progressively discarding reason, we are basically left literally defenceless with our reasoned battlements in ruins.

Freedom costs the lives of our fallen plus $70,000

Today, in Australia, the Blue Mountains to be precise (which lies about 70km to the west of Sydney), I learned that Anzac Marches have been cancelled. Four separate marches. Initially when I read the heading: No Anzac March, I thought it might have been due to the dwindling numbers of Anzacs in that area, but upon actually opening the article, I was  horrified to learn that the reason ANZAC marches have been cancelled in the Blue Mountains is because we can’t afford the money to fund the necessary anti-terrorism security required for the event, more specifically the additional cost of anti-terrorism measures imposed by local police, which include the use of water-filled barriers to close roads (a measure initiated in the wake of the Nice attack last July).

Council, which is believed to have spent $70,000 over the past two years to ensure the marches went ahead, is unable to continue the financial assistance.

Shocking Human Rights abusers elected by the UN to 2017 Human Rights council

If the United Nations was a legitimate organisation then you would expect it to elect countries with the best Human Rights records to the 2017 Human Rights Council. You wouldn’t expect countries with systematic suppression of free speech, arbitrary detentions, death sentences for apostasy and extrajudicial killings to be elected. Shockingly the United Nations has selected countries with exactly those human rights abuses to serve on its 2017 Human Rights Council.

The Human Rights Council, mind you, is supposed to “uphold the highest standards in the promotion and protection of human rights,” according to its mandate…

Let’s take a closer look at the new members of the 2017 Human Rights Council.

A “Judenrein” Jerusalem? New Zealand’s Shame 

A respected British commentator recently described New Zealand as “a stupid country of no other significance”. She was referencing NZ co-sponsoring UN resolution 2334, which effectively bans Jews from living in certain areas.

I am not convinced that New Zealand is a stupid country but in this matter some of our leaders are surely morally deficient.

First, some background:

Jews have been subject to expulsion and persecution for millennia. In the 1930’s and 40’s, for example, the Germans implemented a policy of Jewish expulsion. Their goal was to make Europe Judenrein* or Judenfrei – free of Jews. Jewish communities, many of which had been resident in their host countries for hundreds of years, were expelled or eliminated. I have a number of Jewish friends who lived through this dark period.

Forbidding Jews to live in a particular area was, of course, antisemitism. And it is a matter of historical record that the Judenrein policy was a step on the road to genocide. Ultimately six million Jews were murdered.

Backstabbing Britain

On December 12, the Conservative Prime Minister of the United Kingdom, Theresa May, gave a fulsome speech to the annual Conservative Friends of Israel lunch. Before a roomful of 800 pro-Israel Conservative MPs and party supporters, she lavished praise on the Jewish state. She praised Israel’s achievements and castigated its enemies. She said that Britain would be marking the centenary of the Balfour declaration “with pride.” She also stressed that cooperation and friendship between Britain and Israel was not just for the good of those two countries, but “for the good of the world.”

One thing I really value is loyalty. My true friends have it unreservedly and I will always have their back no matter what the personal cost to myself because that is what true friendship means to me.True friends though are a rare breed and Britain’s PM has shown one face to Israel while stabbing them behind their backs.

Only now, a fortnight later, has the true duplicity of Theresa May’s speech been exposed. For now the world has learned what diplomacy the British government was engaged in even as May was making her speech. At the same time as the Prime Minister was talking about “true friendship” in front of friends of Israel, her government was conspiring with the outgoing Obama administration to kick that friend in the back. The British government was exposed as being one of the key players intent on pushing through the anti-Israel UNSC Resolution 2334. British diplomats were revealed to have been behind the wording and rallying of allies for the resolution.

Opposition Leader and Foreign Affairs spokesman not briefed on Israel resolution

After the Christchurch earthquakes, Opposition Leader Phil Goff complained that he hadn’t been briefed about alleged Israeli spies.  It was subsequently revealed on this blog that he had been briefed. What it did show though was that on matters affecting foreign policy especially relating to Israel convention dictates that the leader of the opposition should be briefed. When New Zealand took the lead in sponsoring UN resolution 2334 as the chair of the UN Security Council it should have been incumbent of foreign minister Murray McCully or at the very least a senior MFaT official to brief Labour leader Andrew Little and his foreign affairs spokesperson David Parker.

We put these questions to Andrew Little:

  1. Were you were briefed by anyone, including Murray McCully and/or Bill English and/or John Key?
  2. If you were briefed were you given full details of the process and resolution and did the briefing match what happened in reality?
  3. If you weren’t briefed why do you think they didn’t brief you?
  4. When John Kerry visited in November were you briefed on the contents of discussions with Murray McCully?

Andrew Little’s response is below in full and unedited:
