Islamic Wokeness of the UN

by Giulio Meotti

Saudi Arabia assumed the presidency of the UN Commission on Women’s Rights. Iran holds the presidency of the UN Disarmament Forum.

But for the Secretary General of the United Nations, Antonio Guterres, there is a “worldwide epidemic of Islamophobia” and the UN has thus adopted a resolution sponsored by Pakistan at the General Assembly on “measures to combat Islamophobia”. Forget the massacres of Jews and Christians. A “special envoy to fight Islamophobia” is now arriving at the UN.

The same United Nations that asked that the word “mankind” must be replaced with “humanity”. Man must disappear.

The same United Nations that asked to go beyond the “stereotypes of men and women” to “create a more egalitarian world”.

That is the same United Nations for which Hamas leader Ismail Haniyeh worked as a teacher at UNRWA.

For two months after October 7, representatives of the United Nations Agency for Gender Equality and the Empowerment of Women refused to meet with Israeli women. While condemning gender violence in war the organization did not mention October 7 terrorist attack.

The United Nations internationally observes the International Day for the Elimination of Violence against Women. Not a word about Hamas.

Welcome to the Wokeland of civilization deceivers, sharia scoundrels and the Mad Hatter West.

Iran launched over 350 drones and missiles towards Israel.

Israel must cut ‘the head of the snake’ – end the direct and ‘proxy’ attacks by Iran, Hamas and Hezbollah,

help the Iranian people remove the Ayatollah regime and destroy the Iranian nuclear weapon program.

Defence is not Enough – complete Victory is Required

The sovereign Jewish state must win the war against its enemies – Iran, Hezbollah and Hamas!

Neutralise Hezbollah first.

Food for Thought. by Steven Shamrak

In the early 1960’s, the USSR switched its support, as a part of the Cold war, from Israel, the only democracy in the Middle East, to the Arab states and Egypt. The Western Socialists began following the Soviet lead, and they still actively do. In their Antisemitic blindness the Leftist members of the international press are venomously attacking Israel, disregarding the facts and reality of the conflict between Israel and fake Palestinians. They have been ignoring the truth that the enemies of Israel, like Hamas and Islamic Jihad organizations, despise the ‘godless’, feminism and gay rights supporting secular ideology of the Left even more than they hate the existence of the Jewish state!

Iran Behind Bombing of Israeli Embassy in Argentina

An Argentine court declared that Iran ordered the attack in 1992 on the Israeli embassy and the attack on the Argentine Israelite Mutual Association (AMIA) Jewish center in Argentina in 1994. The embassy attack killed 29 people, while the AMIA attack two years later killed 85 people. Hezbollah carried out the operation. The court called the AMIA attack a “crime against humanity.”

European Parliament Denounced the UNRWA

European Parliament denounces UNRWA’s role in inciting violence and antisemitism. UNRWA textbooks are among the most antisemitic and inciting in the world. Antisemitic incitement and glorification of terrorism in Palestinian textbooks issued by the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA). From math to theology, to literature and science, their content promotes blistering hatred for Jews and Israel, indoctrinating students as young as six to commit their lives to “martyrdom” and inter-generational war. Compromise with Israelis is described as betraying Palestinian identity, suicide-bombings as intrinsic to it and a prerequisite for entry into heaven.

Hamas Spins Fake Casualty Data

Raising new questions about the credibility of Palestinian death toll figures being reported from Gaza, the Strip’s Hamas-run Health Ministry announced that it had incomplete data on one-third of the casualties. An announcement made by the Health Ministry said that 11,371 of the 33,091 deaths had “incomplete data”. Hamas also claims that 70% of the victims are women and children, which is statistically impossible. With the war against Hamas now in its sixth month, the number of Palestinian casualties has not been independently verified.

How Many Live Hostages does Hamas still Have?

The Hamas terror group has expressed uncertainty as to whether it could gather 40 civilian hostages for release in a prisoner swap deal with Israel. Hamas would not commit to releasing 40 living hostages, but would commit to 40 hostages in total. Hamas took approximately 240 Israelis hostage on October 7, and approximately 100 were freed in a November 2023 prisoner swap. Of the 133 remaining, 34 have been confirmed dead. Israeli and US intelligence believe that at least some of the remaining hostages are being used as “human shields” around Hamas leaders. (That is why Hamas rejects all ceasefire proposals, and make its own ridiculous and unacceptable demands.)

Amnesty International Mourns Death of Terrorist

Amnesty International described terrorist Walid Daqqah as a “Palestinian writer” in statements mourning his death from cancer in prison, castigating Israel while downplaying his command of a cell that abducted, tortured, and murdered an Israeli soldier in 1984. “Walid Daqqah’s writings behind bars are a testament to a spirit never broken by decades of incarceration and oppression,” the NGO said. (Useful anti-Semitic idiots do not care about the killing of Jews by Hamas and Fatah terrorists, who hate the Human rights NGOs even more than Israel.)

Undistributed Aid Blocking New Deliveries

Israel’s military liaison to the Palestinians stated that it could not transfer additional aid to the Gaza Strip via the Kerem Shalom Crossing, as the contents of some 600 trucks were awaiting pickup on the Gaza side. Israel has significantly increased the amount of aid going into Gaza in recent days. (In spite of that, all Israel-haters continue to say, for 6 months already, that people in Gaza are facing starvation in 2 weeks, even though they never do starve.)

Israel Must but not Hamas?

President Joe Biden continued his turn against Israel, demanding that the country unilaterally agree to a ceasefire in exchange for nothing from Hamas. “So, what I’m calling for is for the Israelis to just call for a ceasefire, allow for the next six, eight weeks total access to all food and medicine going into the country. I’ve spoken with everyone from the Saudis to the Jordanians to the Egyptians. They’re prepared to move in.” Biden’s remarks were an apparent reversal from his previous demands that conditioned a ceasefire on Hamas releasing hostages. (Egypt facilitated the rise in Hamas military abilities and construction of their tunnel system. Egypt is still keeping millions of ‘starving’ Gazans from leaving the war zone to Sinai. No pressure from Biden!)

Sons of Ismail Haniyeh Neutralised

Three of the children and grandchildren of Ismail Haniyeh have been killed in an attack on a vehicle in the Gaza Strip. Haniyeh has 13 offsprings, most of whom are in leadership or management positions in Hamas and the Gaza Strip. A week before, officers the Southern District Border Police raided the home of Haniyeh’s sister in southern Israel. She is suspected of corresponding with Hamas terrorists, and inciting and supporting acts of terror in Israel.

Israel Used the ‘C-Dome’ Defense System

As a hostile aircraft entered Israeli airspace near the southern city of Eilat. the Israeli military successfully deployed a defense system called the C-Dome for the first time. The C-Dome is the naval version of the Iron Dome, Israel’s rocket-defense system that has intercepted thousands of rockets fired from Gaza. The Iron Dome, which was activated in 2011 and has an effectiveness of about 90, works by using radars to detect short-range rockets before destroying them with its own missiles.

Armed Gaza Civilians Abducted a Hostage

An Israeli hostage, Nili Margalit, who was abducted during the Hamas-led terror onslaught on October 7, revealed that she was captured by armed Palestinian civilians who later sold her to Hamas. (There are no innocent civilians in Gaza. Most of them have been supporting the heinous terror attack on Israel.)

Quote of the Week:

“Here at the United Nations – the organization founded to prevent atrocities – every effort is being made to distort the facts and the truth. The UN is actively attempting to cause mass amnesia – to make the world forget the heinous crimes that Hamas committed. The Palestinian Authority is an entity that pays and supports terrorists. It has no control over the territory it claims to govern, such as Gaza. And it does not meet the required criteria for Statehood. Supporting a unilateral Palestinian terror state will only ensure more bloodshed and many more October 7th atrocities!” – Gilad Erdan, Israel’s Ambassador to the United Nations – Many members of the “Ugly Nazi” do the same. They are portraying enemies of Israel as victims and vilifying the Jewish state directly, or/and by using their media outlets.

America is Holding Israel Back

by David Friedman (former US ambassador to Israel)

Quick summary of the past 6 months:

1) On October 7, Israel was brutally and barbarically attacked by Hamas, a Foreign Terrorist Organization under US law. On that day, 1200 Israelis were murdered and 254 were kidnapped. Children were burned and women were raped. Adjusting for population size, this would be the numerical equivalent of 42,000 Americans killed and more than 8000 held hostage (God forbid).

2) Even before Israel responded to the attack, much of the world, including the progressive left in America, justified the Hamas invasion.

3) The Biden Administration initially sided with Israel and warned Iran and Hezbollah not to enter the war.

4) Israel responded to the attack as any nation would. To date Israel has eliminated most of the Hamas battalions although there remain at least 3 (of 24) in operation, two in Rafah.

5) Gazan civilians have died in this war, but fewer in relation to the Hamas terrorists killed than in any other analogous war in which such statistics are kept.

6) As in any war, mistakes have been made including deaths by friendly fire.

7) Israel has not targeted civilians nor impeded humanitarian aid. More aid trucks have entered the Gaza Strip per day than before the war. As is typical of Hamas, it hoards supplies for its troops and causes mass suffering to its civilians.

8) Nonetheless, the social media onslaught against Israel has been intense and unrelenting. Lies upon lies about Israel’s handling of the war have been advanced and accepted by what was once considered reliable media.

9) Progressive and Arab population centers have engaged in vicious blood libels against Israel, especially in the United States. Universities have become unliveable for pro-Israel students.

10) Antisemitism has reached unprecedented levels. The US administration has done nothing to combat antisemitism on campus or in the streets.

11) President Biden and his administration, along with Democrat leaders, have surrendered to political pressure from the left and have turned on Israel, demanding a ceasefire unconnected to the release of all hostages and advocating that support for Israel be conditioned on Israel softening its defense against Hamas. The US supported a UN resolution that called for a ceasefire without condemning Hamas. Hamas leadership celebrated this diplomatic victory.

12) Not surprisingly, the US position has caused Hamas to harden its demands in negotiations for the release of hostages.

13) Notwithstanding Biden’s warning to Iran and Hezbollah, Israel has faced daily attacks from within Lebanon and Syria since the war began. Some 60,000 Israelis have been evacuated from their homes in the North and there is no clarity as to when they may return home.

14) Six months into the war, Hamas has not yet been fully defeated. Hezbollah and Iran continue to attack and 134 hostages remain in captivity.

15) Israel has the will and the strength to eliminate Hamas’ capacity for terror and to exert significant pressure to hopefully cause a release of the hostages. Right now, America is holding Israel back.
