The U.N.'s Resolve To Destroy Israel

An article in American Thinker gives us a good historical background on the legalities behind the Israel-Palestinian conflict, and the United Nation's involvement in delegitimizing and demonizing Israel. Its practice continues unabated, chiefly because there is a method to its madness. The historical record has been forgotten by too many persons, including by the political leaders in Israel, who have become side-tracked by other interests. Of particular relevance is UN Resolution 3236. In the informative article, Salomon Benzimra writes:
Resolution 3236 (Nov. 22, 1974) was adopted with a two-thirds majority. It expanded on the contents of previous resolutions and included blatantly anti-Zionist provisions reflecting Arafat's speech: it reaffirmed the "inalienable rights of the Palestinian people in Palestine ... their right to self-determination and their right to national independence and sovereignty over Palestine," as well as their "inalienable right to return to theirhomes and property from which they have been displaced and uprooted, and calls for their return." In essence, it eradicated Israel, a member-state of the U.N., as an entity accused of crimes against international law because of its "aggression" against the "colonized" Palestinian people.
The final demonization of Israel occurred a year later, when UNGA Resolution 3379 was passed on November 10, 1975 (ironically, on the 37th anniversary of Kristallnacht). It contained only one operative clause -- "[the UNGA] Determines that zionism [sic] is a form of racism and of racial discrimination" -- and established a clear linkage to the apartheid regime in South Africa, thus subjecting Zionism to opprobrium and incessant attack until it is eradicated.
The Palestinian narrative has been accepted by the world with the help of the mainstream media, with the overt aid of the U.N., which at least in the case of Israel, has gone against its own Charter. Why this is so becomes clear: Israel's very existence is a threat to the Marxist-Islamic alliance that forms a great part of the U.N. member nations. A democratic nation in the Middle East undermines its ideology. The solution that the U.N. offers is to destroy Israel, if not physically, than at least morally and spiritually—to eradicate its very existence.

  1. The discussions about settlements and borders miss the point, as Salomon Benzimra understands. The BDS Movement claims to be opposed to settlements, but such a movement has never taken place against countries like Sudan or North Korea that do truly horrible things. The unstated issue is whether Israel and its people should be allowed to live.
    According to an editorial in the New York Sun that appeared on March 11, 2005, a Hezbollah statement made in 1992 says, “It is an open war until the elimination of Israel and until the death of the last Jew on earth.” Three days later, on March 14, 2005, an article by Pranay Gupte in the New York Sun said that Nasrallah spits on the ground whenever he says the Arabic word for “Jew."
    That's what BDS is about, although some of the participants in the movement don't know what they're fighting for.

    1. And the world, save for the U.S., Canada and a few other nations, blindly and faithfully follow the U.N.'s initiatives to destroy Israel. It's business as usual.
