Okay, I just have to say it. Either I am going certifiably insane, or the world is. Or maybe both at the same time. I’m not sure.
But I know for certain the United Nations is completely insane, thanks to the most recent vote the body politic took to single out the world’s ONLY violator of health rights.
And guess who they picked? Why of course: ISRAEL.
As reported by UNwatch.org, “As Israeli hospitals continue their life-saving treatment for escalating numbers of wounded Syrians fleeing to the Golan from the Assad regime’s barbaric attacks, the U.N. reached new heights of absurdity today by accusing Israel of violating the health rights of Syrians in the Golan.”
“By a vote of 104 to 4, with 6 abstentions and 65 absent, the Jewish state was the only country in the world to be singled out as a violator of health rights when its alleged victims were spotlighted by the annual assembly of the U.N.’s World Health Organization.”
“The resolution also called for the World Health Organization to prepare a report on” the effect of prolonged occupation and human rights violations on mental and physical health,” and particularly “the health consequences of the Israeli military detention system on Palestinian prisoners and detainees, especially child detainees.”
Of course it completely ignores the actions by those “humanitarian organizations” like Hamas, the Palestinian Authority and Hezbollah – or those really generous countries like Yemen for example, “where the health of the Yemeni people now under indiscriminate Saudi bombardment, no mention at all of the 1,850 Yemenis killed, the 7,394 wounded, and the 545,000 displaced, many of whom are desperate to find food.”
And speaking of the Saudis, “the representative of Saudi Arabia’s theocracy took the floor, without any sense of shame, to denounce “Israeli intransigence,” and to beseech “all peace loving states” to adopt the distorted and politicized resolution.”
But of course meanwhile, the Saudis are busily interviewing to fill EIGHT new executioner jobs. Honestly you’d think those ISIS boys would be CLAMORING to “make the cut” considering it’s their lack of jobs that causes them to be so cranky. (Oh Marie, we will miss you.)
But anyway, back to the absurdity of the United Nations (stay with me folks, it gets better), in a submission from Syria circulated as an official UN document, it said “The Israeli occupation authorities continue to experiment on Syrian and Arab prisoners with medicines and drugs and to inject them with pathogenic viruses.”
“Unable to deny Israel’s medical treatment of wounded Syrians, the regime concocted another plot: Israel deliberately heals regime opponents so that they can “resume their subversive terrorist activities directed against the country’s peaceful citizens and its infrastructure.”
Ok, one more time…Israel is deliberately HEALING opponents so it can then continue killing them. This makes sense to…absolutely no one with a functioning brain.
Perhaps worst of all, the member states of the European Union all joined in with the scapegoating of Israel.
But as Hillel C. Neuer writes in his article for UN Watch:
“The UN should single out Israel because its doctors have created the amazing “Save A Child’s Heart” program, which has provided life-saving cardiac surgery to more than 3,400 children from 48 different countries, training doctors and nurses from China to Zanzibar. About half the patients are Muslims from the West Bank, Gaza and other Arab countries.
The UN should single out Israel because it was a world leader in responding to the deadly earthquake in Nepal, sending a 260-member army team of medics and search and rescue experts who treated 1,600 victims, including 85 surgeries and eight infant deliveries.”
No, I’m not insane. The world is, and it’s clearly getting ever more dangerous daily.
