Israel's Unfair Treatment From the United Nations

Nadene Goldfoot
In 1948 when Israel was declared a state, the UN commission of Palestine recommended partition of the land between the Arabs and the Jews. The Jews accepted but the Arabs didn't. They had refused to participate in the 15 nation UN commission of Palestine. Their response was to attack Israel instead of working for a state. The UN was silent while 58 Jerusalem Synagogues were destroyed by Jordanians between 1948 and 1967. They were silent when the Jordanians desecrated the ancient Jewish cemetery on the Mount of Olives during the same period. In other words, when anything on Jewish land was destroyed by Arabs up till 1967, the UN did nothing.

175 Security Council resolutions were passed before 1990 regarding Israel and the Arabs. 97 were directed against Israel.

Since 1990 Israel has been constantly bombarded from Gaza and what has the UN done? Was Hamas stopped by the UN? Were they condemmed? No.

This United Nations group has become an arm of the Palestinian terrorists. It's not the group it was designed to be-someone who could judge fairly as I thought it would be when it was first created.
