    The UN may appear to some as a grand and noble institution but to all those who post on this site accusing Israel of flouting UN resolutions, let them ask themselves these questions; 1.why should Israel take the UN seriously when the UN itself cannot act fairly and bona fide amongst the Nations of the World? 2. why does the UN not denounce by way of resolution the untold numbers of state killing of Moslems by Moslems? Moslems only seem interested in denouncing Israel but where Moslems kill Moslems they generally look the other way, and the UN General Assembly , in the pocket of the Moslem world does the same. Saddam murdering the Kurds, as well as his own people, the Iran/Iraq War, Assad of Syria killing and torturing his own people, to cite but a few examples . Surely it is obvious even to those blinded by prejudice , that the UN will target Israel whenever prompted to do so by the vast Moslem lobby.The ongoing plight of the Syrian people is dire, yet the UN turns a blind eye, pays lip service to Assad’s brutality and chooses yet again the easy option, Israel and the settlements . Maybe one day the Arabs will ,in Golda Meir’s famous words ‘start to love their own children more than they hate ours’ which may lead to the UN becoming a ‘grand and noble institution’ rather than a ‘theatre of the absurd’
