Ruthie Blum's latest Israel Hayom article blasts the United Nations for its hypocrisy and anti-Israel stance.
Israel's decision on Sunday to backtrack on its boycott of the U.N. Human Rights Council, and to attend the council's Universal Periodic Review in Geneva on Tuesday, was disappointing. If this, as was reported in Haaretz, is because Germany warned of the "severe diplomatic damage" that would ensue if Israel remained steadfast, it is downright disgusting.Israel severed ties with the UNHRC a year and a half ago, in March 2012, after having grown completely fed up with being the repeated target of unfair resolutions. The UNHRC was established in 2006 to replace the U.N. Commission on Human Rights, which allowed countries with poor human rights records to be members.Now there's a hoot. Anyone who expected the name change to make a difference in the snake pit that puts primitive Third World states headed by abusive despots on a par with North America and Europe ought to have his head examined.In fact, in the Orwellian universe we all currently occupy, the very term "human rights" means the exact opposite. When embedded in a title of an organization, it is a clear indicator of that body's bias towards the forces that would bring down Western values. The fact that even U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon and his predecessor, Kofi Annan, accused the UNHRC of disproportionate focus on Israeli violations of human rights shows just how pernicious and pointless it is.Israel and World Jewry must stop looking to to the United Nations, foreign countries, leaders and NGO's for moral authority and approval.
The most moral religion is Judaism, and for us to "be a light for all nations," we must use our own batteries and light-bulbs.
And we must stop discriminating against Jews. Jews must be permitted to pray on the Temple Mount, Har Habayit. Jews must be allowed to live all over the Land of Israel, even in towns and cities that have a majority of non-Jews. Anything else is antisemitic discrimination, whether done by Jew or non-Jew. We shouldn't be worried about what the world will say. At present they are just laughing at us, knowing that we're doing their dirty work.
