More Proof That the U.N. is Morally Bankrupt

According to this report
Acting on behalf of Arab nations, Qatar circulated a draft
U.N. Security Council resolution Thursday demanding
Israel end its offensive in the
Gaza Strip and release the Palestinian officials it has arrested.
Gee, what a surprise, Muslim governments in a snit because those uppity Jews in Israel have the nerve to defend themselves once again against Palestinian Islamic terrorism.

Even though sometimes it seems like the U.N. is made up entirely of moral retards, there are still Israel, the United States,
The draft faced immediate opposition from the United States and France,
and France? Well, kind of.
which called it unbalanced in its criticism of Israel. The document does not condemn the kidnapping of an Israeli soldier by Palestinian militants and makes no mention of Palestinian rocket attacks on southern Israel this week.

France's ambassador said he would offer changes, but U.S. Ambassador John Bolton suggested that Washington opposed the resolution entirely.
Because of John Bolton, we can be proud of what the U.S. is doing in a vain attempt at improving the vicious anti-semitism at the U.N.
That raised the possibility that the United States, as a permanent member of the Security Council, would veto it. It has done so in the past when it believed resolutions condemning Israeli action did not include criticism of Palestinian actions.

Experts from the 15 Security Council nations were to meet later in the day to discuss the draft, but Bolton was not optimistic.
How could he be optimistic when
The resolution calls on Israel to "scrupulously abide by its obligations and responsibilities under the Geneva Convention," and expresses its "grave concern about the dire humanitarian situation of the Palestinian people.

It demands that Israel "cease its aggression against the Palestinian civilian population" in Gaza, and also demands that Israel withdraw its forces immediately.

It expresses appreciation for efforts to find a diplomatic solution and release all prisoners, including Shalit.

"I'm not sure there are amendments that we could propose that would make it into an acceptable resolution," he said.
That doesn't give much cause for optimism.

The observer from the imaginary country of Palestine (allowed in because they really hate Jews) had this to spew:
"We hope that the Security Council would rise to the occasion and would adopt a resolution and send the appropriate message to Israel to stop their aggression,"
Of course, we are supposed to ignore the fact that this whole fiasco started because the Palestinians in repeated and brazen acts of war, have continuously sent rockets into civilian areas of Israel, murdered Israeli soldiers and civilians, and kidnapped an Israeli soldier, Gilad Shalit. But because Palestinian society is so pathetic, and so degraded after four generations dedicated to the destruction of Israel through the creation of a terrorist state, they expect to play by different rules. They don't think they should have to pay the consequences for their murderous actions. The U.N. is supposed to come to their rescue and kick out that nasty IDF and allow Palestinian terrorists free rein to attack Israel again. Oh yeah, and keep that "charity" flowing. We wouldn't want a "humanitarian crisis" on our hands, would we?

Also, in typical Palestinian fashion, Palestinian terrorists (not militants, extemists, fighters, or any other stupid euphemism from the MSM) fight behind their own children, which they use as human shields as you can see




here with Barney Fife, and

here, where the terrorists, hiding among children are referred to as "masked activists". For some reason, while Israel is expected to uphold the Geneva Convention to the letter and beyond, no one in the news media or the U.N. has seen fit to take the whiny Palestinians, who wear no uniforms, to task for using their own children as human shields.

This time, after all of the sacrifices Israel has made over all these years, the Palestinians need to learn that actions have consequences.

Wow, those images are absolutely appalling. How anyone could still condemn Israel when this is so clearly out in the open is beyond me. They have to be either blind, and unable to see what is going on before their eyes, or as you put it, moral retards.

I think it does come down to blindness. I don't remember who said it and I can't even quote it correctly, but it was to the effect that love and hate are both blinding. Love blinds you to the defects of your object of affection, while hatred blinds you to goodness within the object of your hatred.

What we're seeing (in my opinion) is Jew-hatred, which was previously pushed beneath the surface in our post holocaust world, returning to the mainstream with a vengence, thanks to our friends in the Religion of Peace and their supporters on the left (who aren't against the Jews, silly, they're only against those evil zionists).

Hmm, I think this blindness leads to moral retardation.
