    The UN no longer can be regarded as an objective and impartial organization, bc the majority of its members are Muslim states. OF COURSE they keep bickering on Israel non-stop. That is their religious duty that they've made the UN's duty too! - From a Westerner's viewpoint, it is absurd of the UN to have Syria sit in the HCR -LOL!- The Muslim states don't even recognize the UN's Universal Human Rights from 1949, bc it is contradictory to their Sharia. To have Iran sit in the Woman's rights forum - LOL! - is just as inconceivable, bc Islam/Sharia, deprives women from their human rights and equality. Acc. to Sharia "a woman's testimony is a half of a man's testimony" !! What about letting Ahmadenijehad speak in the UN and slander one of the UN's member-states, Israel, before all the other member states? And not once, but repeatedly !! --- As I see it the UN represents exclusively the Muslims and drives at their agenda and therefore the UN has turned against its original missions and has not only lost good manners but it also has lost its mind.

Which foods make you fat? The answer is in your gut

Is rice more healthful than ice cream? Not necessarily. Are potatoes harmful? Not for everyone.
