Ben-Gurion hasn't been in power for close to half a century, and things with the United Nations hasn't gotten any better. It has only gotten much worse.
When I, as an elementary school student, I remember doing a project about the UN. There were fewer than a hundred member states as the United Nations was in its second decade of existence. Most were veteran countries with long histories. They were trying to change the world by inventing, approving/recognizing the establishment of all sorts of countries where none had ever been before, and then giving them full membership.
Because these new countries had no real history or culture to unite them, they have been inherently unstable causing much of the problems in the modern world, especially in Africa, Asia and the Middle-east. All sorts of official United Nations "help" organizations now exist to support them. It's a major international industry.
And these unstable, violent nations stand in judgement over Israel, which is one of the reasons that the UN spends a ridiculous amount of its time condemning Israel. And what sort of country is considered acceptable to be a member of the UN's human rights body? Sudan, the same Sudan which is terrorizing its citizens, many of which flee to safety in Israel.
UN Watch, which headed the World NGO Summit on Darfur, also called on US Secretary of State Hillary Clinton and the EU’s Catherine Ashton to denounce and fight against Sudan’s candidacy.The United Nations is nothing like what had been envisioned by those who established it after World War Two. It has become a dangerous monster. Israel should just leave it and stop paying it money.
“Electing Sudan to the U.N. body mandated to promote and protect human rights worldwide is like putting Jack the Ripper in charge of a women’s shelter,” said Hillel Neuer, executive director of UN Watch. (complete article)
