    Israel's contempt of the UN is well founded. The same organization that put forth UN 425 and 1559, was the same one that first lied about its knowledge of the Hizballah attack following the Israeli withdrawel, then refused to hand back the evidence (Israeli property) when demanded by Israel. As for its so-called human rights commission. The stacked committe wasted no time in jumping into the fight for Human Rights... immediately putting Israel in the docket for special investigations and reviews (out of 190+ members) on a quartelry basis (which is the number of regular committe meetings hosted per year). The laundry list of resolutions hosted by the Arab and Muslim nations only add to the contempt. IF the UN is going to show itself as something other than another battlefield for the Arab states, than adhering to 1559 would be a good start. If you're going to pound the table about sonic booms, perhaps you might remind yourself about the thousands of missiles housed.
