  • Elder of Ziyon
This press release from the UN tells you pretty much everything you need to know about that bloated, ineffective organization:
JAKARTA, Indonesia, 8 June -- The United Nations Asian and Pacific Meeting on the Question of Palestine this afternoon heard presentations of four experts, including Israeli and Palestinian, on the theme "International efforts aimed at achieving a comprehensive, just and lasting settlement of the question of Palestine".

A journalist from Israel pointed out that the two-State solution was generous to Israel, as it acknowledged that history could not be undone. The reason why Israel did not accept that solution was, according to her, because it would threaten Jewish contemporary thinking in Israel as it would leave the future out of control of the hegemonic Jewish authorities.

And who was this Israeli journalist who happily represented her country in this meeting?
AMIRA HASS, journalist for the Israeli daily newspaper Ha'aretz, said people were often lost in formulas. It was necessary to take the reality out of standard and confusing language. The two-State solution was not just a mantra, she said, but posed a deep historiography of the conflict, different from the one used by the Israelis or the Palestinians. That solution said that Israel was part of the colonialist period. Zionism was both a product of European colonialism and also of the prosecution of the Jews with its culmination in the Nazi industry of murder.
Ah, it's one of Ha'aretz' most pro-Arab and anti-Zionist reporters!

Besides the fact that the UN creates a "balanced" symposium by including three Muslims and a far-left anti-Zionist Israeli, think about the name of the conference:

The United Nations Asian and Pacific Meeting on the Question of Palestine

The UN cannot find enough calendar days in the year to overemphasize the plight of a single group of people who get a hugely disproportionate amount of attention, money and sympathy. It has to convene meetings about the issue all over the world in order to keep people's attention riveted towards this unique group of people, at the expense of the dozens of groups who deserve far more.

Can you imagine a more worthless organization than one that can come up with this idea for a meeting?

If life were discovered on Mars tomorrow, you can be sure that the UN-sponsored Martian symposium on Palestine would not be far behind.
