    "it is not the `UN`s` fault that Israel is lacking `friends` in the world. It is Israel`s own fault." Being disliked by some of the most BESTIAL nations on the planet should be worn as a badge of honour.Israels enemies are the backward, misogynist, despotic nations who noone should want to befriend.Indeed they should be opposed by all means, preferably diplomatically. "True, most muslim countries will dislike or hate Israel" Oh you are arguing with yourself now? It is precisely because of THAT which you say, that Israel is outvoted constantly in the moribund General Assembly.The organisation of Islamic conferences(O.I.C) consisits of 56 nations who vote as a block and in turn influence many other (particularly African) nations who are utterly dependant on Arab oil for their survival, to support them in GA votes. It is directly as a result of OIC nations efforts, or rather lack of them that the GA was bypassed by the worlds major nations to pressurise Sudan to stop its slaughter of Black Muslims.Yes, Sudan has many friends and sympathisers. "no special interest specifically for the UN" Really. I thought there were several special interests. Specifically, human rights, world health, prevention of wars/peacekeeping.Though at times you could be forgiven for not knowing it! Princess.Bad preparation leads to messy arguments and cries of derision. Tough. Try again.
