Maya, thanks for letting me know that it works!

Devorah, Maya, I guess we're all Dry Bones fans.

That's in the Hagadah, and it has its source somewhere in the Oral Torah - it may seem to be more or less true but it is not in Tanac.

Try, maybe, Isaiah 32:5 (although that's more understood as referring to people who actually do not give Tzedakah)

"The vile person shall no more be called liberal, nor the churl said to be noble (I think we need to look at the Hebrew here)

There are a number of verses - also in Tehillim - that refer to people being accused of being bbad when they are not,, and maybe wicked people being said to be good, and one of those would probabkly be apropos to the United Nations.
