With a recent abstaining vote by the U.S., the U.N. Security Council recently passed a resolution demanding that Israel halt building settlements on occupied Palestinian territory, a move that was permitted by the U.S.'s abstention. This vote was orchestrated by the Obama administration as way of flipping the bird to Israel in being able to live on their ancestral land.
Once again we are seeing the U.N. being used to bring about the destruction of Israel.
Are you aware that under the United Nations' World Heritage Treaty, which creates "World Heritage Sites" and "Biosphere Reserves" selected for their cultural, historical or natural significance, national governments are obligated to protect these landmarks under U.N. mandate?
Since 1972, 23 U.S. national parks, monuments and preserves have been designated as World Heritage Sites. This includes the Statue of Liberty, Thomas Jefferson's home at Monticello, Yellowstone National Park, Yosemite National Park, Everglades National Park and the Grand Canyon. The most sacred of sites is Independence Hall in Philadelphia where our Constitution was signed. Surprised, I was.
The U.S. contributes 22 percent to the budget of the U.N. Countries that together pay less than 1.3 percent of the total are able, under U.N. voting rules, to pass the budget over the objections of countries that contribute a combined 98 percent. Why should we keep funding an organization that is not in the best interests of America?
With the U.N. being nothing more than a world stage for various tyrannical despots using it as a pawn in their wanting to destroy Israel and the U.S., it's time that the U.S. either kicks the U.N. out of New York or severely curtails funding of the U.N.
Don't believe it, do your own research.
