What Israel’s stunning UN win says about the Middle East — and America under Obama

Rebel Staff
 

I was surprised last month when Israel was elected to chair the prestigious United Nations legal committee, also known as the UN General Assembly Sixth Committee.

It was a vote by UN countries — many of which are unfree, the largest bloc of which are Muslim countries — and it passed, getting 109 votes out of 175 votes.

Normally, the chair of this committee would be decided by consensus. This time, the ambassador from Yemen demanded a vote. But it was a secret vote.

And according to a Qatari newspaper, four Arab countries voted for Israel. Despite all of their noisy bluster.

I don’t know if that’s true. But it wouldn’t surprise me.

The Middle East is a different place these days.

The United States has destabilized it, backing the Muslim Brotherhood in Egypt and elsewhere, and doing a shocking deal with Iran.

So if you’re a Gulf State, who’s your friend? If you’re in a battle against the Islamic State, do you think you can count on Obama?

If you’re the King of Jordan or the President of Egypt, you probably look at Israel as the most stable, most reliable, strongest thing in the region.

Shebel Raj well put, i would not be surprised if Justin thought Israel was in South America.

Shebel Raj – well said, and I agree completely! And not to mention that Trudeau used Canadian tax dollars to buy his way into the UN, just to out do PM Harper. In his eyes only, I might add. He can never hold a candle to the leadership and integrity that Harper possessed. Harper had it all and now we have a clueless clown being led by those with an agenda that only the evil want. The UN wanted to take down Canada, and Trudeau caved for his ego and vanity! Narcissists love to think they are stars and legends in their own minds. They could careless if they destroy others, while standing in the limelight.

I agree with SHEBEL RAJ. Harper was a true FRIEND to Israel. Imagine the horror for Nettenyahu when the elitist snob (with the unabashed help of the criminal cbc, I might add ) Trudope the Younger was elected here. His (Benjamin’s)one true friend in the west, Harper, was gone. To top it off he was replaced with a muslim loving air head who doesn’t seem to give a rat’s about Israel. When Benjamin looks at North America he must just be sickened.

What really gets me is Albright and others reference to Harry Truman. The Dems are obsessed with the idiot. Albright, the silly c**t, said she came from Czech after the commie take over in 1948 and came to a wonderful US with Truman in power. WHAT !!! It was F-kin Truman who handed Eastern Europe to the Commies and Asia as well. She was F-kin Secretary of State! She doesn’t read I guess just like Cliton. Totally oblivious to reality and HISTORY. Lies, Lies, Lies and complete and utter delusion. Obama and Clinton against human trafficking ? Yet those women in Africa are still missing and it has been on the Democrats and Liberals that more human’s have been trafficked in NA under THEIR WATCH. ISIS is still there folks!!! What a pile of stinking dung at the DNC. So no wonder the Arabs are looking to Israel. With Harry “Retreat” Truman as their idol, Israel is their only hope.

I guess the UN was sick of being pushed around by Saudi Islamic thugs so they opted to be pushed around by Zionist thugs for a while, then the Norks and Chicoms will give it a crack.

This superfluous 5th level of government is so corrupt and nepotistic, it has been in ethical and policy stagnation for at least 2 decades – we need to pull out.

I have been in a few islamic countries over the past year – some of the people I talk to are open about their hatred of Jews and Israel – until they get behind closed doors.

Israel would be a very tough “take down” and would respond to nukes with nukes.

Some islamics like that.

It keeps the borders a bit quieter.

As an UNTSO negotiator some years ago – the Syrian military officers would tell me they wanted the Israelis along the DMZ in the Golan – it kept things quiet.

Islamics are afraid of their own and like the police capability of Israel.

Shhhhhh…….

Do not tell anyone.

I was so proud to support Harper when he was PM of Canada. He had the balls to stand up to UN and and say that Canada is a Friend of Israel. Unfortunately , Canada, is now saddled with a PM that does not even understand the terms Loyalty , Friendship or Integrity. Justin is actually stupid enough to think that he purchase Respect and Prestige and Loyalty from the UN.

Israel will not trust the Muslims, have no fear. Perhaps the A-rabs think they can seduce Israel into Nuclear threats against the Arabs enemies.

The Arab States that may have voted for Israel are simply hedging their bets. When the gloves come off, they will turn on Israel in a nano second!
