UN resolutions against Israel

UN resolutions and US Security Council Vetoes that prevent action against Israel

By Dark Politricks

We often hear from politicians and in the news talk about reasons why we should go to war against Iran and previously Iraq because they have broken a UN resolution or are not complying with the wishes of weapon inspection teams.

Our leaders often like to take the moral high ground when talking about human rights and how the wishes of the international community must be adhered to when the UN makes a decision.

They use the force of the UN and the security council when they require moral legitimacy to go to war yet they are prepared to ignore or circumvent it when votes don't go their way.

When the west uses the UN to deal with issues surrounding the Middle East they are perfectly prepared to issue resolutions that legitimise the death of millions of children through starvation as they did during the sanctions regime imposed on Iraq.

They are also perfectly willing to use the UN to legitimise pre-emptive wars, and as they are now doing with Iran, impose sanctions for it's pursuit of nuclear energy because they suspect it "might" be planning a weapons program despite the say so of nuclear weapons inspectors.

However there is one country in the Middle East that does have nuclear weapons and this same country has been occupying parts of Palestine in breach of UN resolutions for half a century. This country is Israel.

In fact Israel has broken more UN resolutions that any other in UN history

This country also has the benefit that their biggest ally, the USA, will veto any serious resolution against them preventing any action from being carried out.

If you remember the UN was the organisation that CREATED Israel after the 2nd World War as a home for Jews. However straight away there was a massacre of Palestinians as they fought to keep their homes and the Israeli's fought to expand their homeland.

Just look at this image to see how much land Israel has taken from Palestinians since it's inception. When Israeli's use the line  "A land without a people for a people without a land", that is pure bullshit, otherwise why are there so many refugees wanting to go back to their homes.

Why was there in 2018 a massacre of Gazan prisoners who were trying to pray at a peaceful protest on the Gazan border where many can still see their old homes?

Did these people not exist back in the early 2000th century or was it all lies to get more Jews to come and live in the Desert and turn it into a modern Western Liberal country in the Middle East, right where the US could use it as an outpost in an area that was very important to them through the massive oil deposits in the surrounding countries.

Why is Gaza one of the most crowded open air prisons in the world, cut off by land and sea. The Mavi Marmara incident showed us nicely what the IDF does in international waters (piracy), to people just trying to bring aid, food and building materials that are all blocked from entering the Gaza strip by Israelis.

Does this seem right or fair?

Was the UN designed only to be a tool to be used by the powerful to legitimise it's actions?

Was it supposed to be purely a talking shop to be ignored at will no matter how deserving a resolution may seem, purely because powerful lobby groups such as AIPAC have control over most of the US congress?

Lets all remember that the beginnings of international law rose from the ashes of the 2nd World War and the Nuremberg trials. Trials in which the persecutors of the Jews were tried and sentenced.

Therefore the first attempts at creating international law were for the benefit of the Jewish people. Laws which should be applied equally to all nations is currently ignored by many.

Israel due to their powerful ally in the security council has escaped judgment more than most and whether you like some of the other despotic nations that fill the world or not it is a plain fact that Israel leads this table of broken UN resolutions.

There is article and updated list of resolutions on UN Resolutions against Israel written in 2018 if you want more updated information.

Despite the US policy of always vetoing a Security Council vote on Israel, Obama, whose hatred for Bibi Netanyahu was well known and is continually shared by European leaders, gave a last two fingers up to Israel on leaving office. Barack Obama on Dec 23rd 2016, abstained from a vote attacking Israel over it's continued settlement construction in occupied Palestinian territory.

To show how surprised people were by a abstention rather than veto which got the resolution passed, applause erupted in the room. The problem is though that Trump is now in power, moving it's embassy to Jerusalem and seemingly wants a war with Iran.
