The UN-believably biased

In case you haven't read about the Secretary-General of the United Nations, and who he is, read here.
So now we hear that Kofi is saying Israel Attacked a UN post deliberately. Deliberately. Comments on this blog of course say that Israel is evil (like Dracula evil?) and this is conclusive evidence. Kofi says so. You know in case you didn't click on the link about here is that picture again:

But we all know that even while the Secretary-General is like that, at least the UN itself is incredibly fair and balanced, right? right?
I mean look at their report, they are repairing damaged roads god bless their souls. Wait, what? They are repairing damaged roads that the IAF hit specifically to interfere with Hezbollah movement? During war they repair roads that a terrorist organization uses to transport weapons (from Syria and Iran) and reinforcements to the front line and shooting at civilians? Somebody tell me I'm dreaming. Basically "were going to help the terrorists because they are the under dogs and our twisted moral perceptions dictate our policy".

Right, and now we deliberately hit a UN post. You know, before any of you wrote in complaining (I was going to write about it anyway) about it, nobody wrote why they think we did it. Didn't you watch ever Columbo? Murder needs to have a motivations, what did we gain by this? Was the UN post a strategical target? Did we think perhaps this will help us instead of creating even more whiners saying Israel is evil? Isn't the Secretary-General of the UN supposed to be a "diplomat" who doesn't jump to conclusions and makes sensational accusations (a position I reserve for the comments on my blog)? No, this can't be a mistake. We flew over the UN post on our way to bombing innocent children orphans in a hospital and thought, well it's on the way, why not?

Gillerman said "Israel is carrying out a thorough inquiry into this tragic incident and will inform the UN of its results as soon as possible." - Not that anybody will care what the outcome of that will be, since we already decided what happened. And by the time it's shown that it was a mistake nobody will talk about it. All you'll see in the headlines about this ever will be: "Israel Attacked UN Post Deliberately!".

Did I mention yet that over the years Hezbollah liked to position itself close to UN outposts in the hopes we'll hit them accidentally (not saying this happened this time, just for your general knowledge)?

Let me leave you with this quote: "Let me say that Hizb'A'llah... Is a player in the South of Lebanon... I did tell Mr. Nasrallah that Hizb'Allah exercised restraint, responsibility, and dicipline after the withdrawal, and that we would want to see that continue, and I'm sure from the indications that he gave me that he intends to do it." - UN Secretary General Kofi with Prime Minister Barak, June 21, 2000.

"By the way" we had 20 soldiers injured to day in Binat Jabal. And the "Rome Summit" (Rome just loves Jews) is starting in a few minutes. Updates soon, if I'm not too disgusted. A little bit more about the UN.


  • Hello Eugene,

    Nice to read you again.
    I have some points to point out.
    First, here we didn't hear the word deliberatly, about israel hitting the UN post. We just heard that the UN and the EU are demanding a thorough investigation into the matter, because it is unacceptable. (which I can perfectly understand, and I hope you too).
    Can you please point out to me where you read that the UN used the term DELIBERATLY ? I'm not saying it didn't, I'm saying we never heard it.

    Secondly, the picture of annan shaking hands with nasrallah, doesn't really prove anything, when it comes to the bias of the UN. You know very well that you and I could find pictures of amercian presidents shaking hands with dictators it later destroyed etc..
    The UN's job, as I understand it, is to negociate with all parties, and weither we like it or not, HA was one, back in 2000.

    Hope to read you soon,

  • We know the UN is biased in favor of tyrants who abuse their people.

    From the reports I have read, there must have been several targets near that outpost. Seems they had the opportunity to closely observe IAF bombing for several hours (bombs striking within 500yds.)

    I'm guessing the pilot tried for a moving target, and hit the UN outpost instead.

  • “I am shocked and deeply distressed by the apparently deliberate targeting by Israeli Defence Forces of a UN Observer post in southern Lebanon,” Annan said in a statement later.

  • Hey Eugene, when I read the report that the UN outpost was hit,my first thought was that they(clumsily) either got in the way or it was an accident.I wasnt aware that Hezbullah positioned themselves close to U.N. outposts.I appreciate your insight and input to what is really going on over there.
    I believe that Kofi didnt have to go out of his way to accuse Israel of bombing the U.N on purpose,the main stream media in the U.S. will do it for him.
    Your doing a good job honey.Keep up the good work.Stay safe and God speed b'tseeyon Adonai vachahr kee.

  • Well apparently, the "munitions that hit the United Nations Truce Supervision Organization (UNTSO) position early Wednesday were precision-guided" and "the strike came after repeated requests by UNTSO commanders to the IDF not to strike that specific position" (I quoted jpost).

    In light of this, I can understand the use of the term deliberatly. Now it's up to Israel to prove the UN wrong. that's how I see it, instead of shouting out loud that it wasn't deliberate.
    And I guess Olmert is doing just that (trying to prove the UN wrong).
    So let's wait and see.

  • Eugene,

    Don't worry. Most of us in the US see the UN for what it is--a corrupt organization full of anti-Semites. I for one think they should be dismantled. Between the oil-for-food scandal(which has gotten almost no media coverage)to their constant blame America and Israel first ideaology they are a complete joke.

  • First: that photo of Annan and Nasrallah is nauseating.

    Second: I have to admit, I laughed so hard when I first found out that the IAF took out the UN post. It seems like poetic justice in a way, as the UN has done NOTHING to keep the peace on that border. I'm beyond words to describe how I feel about the UN at the moment. Of course, finding out that 4 people were killed was very sobering, and I certainly don't think that's funny; it's tragic.

    Third: Though in my little mind I may wish the IAF did that on purpose,(destroy the post, not kill the UN workers), realistically I know that they are way too intelligent to destroy the post deliberately. And I've never known Israel to kill anyone without extremely good cause, much less UN peacekeepers.

  • Well, as you said, the army was informed that there are UN people.

    How can this happen? I don't think it was intentional - but then I'm surprised how unprofessional the IDF acted. Imagine Condi would have been hit by a shrapnel during her visit in Lebanon....

    And jean got it right. The UN is basically a platform for nations do manage their problems together. It's institutionalised diplomacy. So the UN isn't necessarily evil if it doesn't do what you want. It does what the participating countries and especially the security council wants it to do.

  • "The UN is basically a platform for nations do manage their problems together." - I don't doubt the intent for what the UN should be was good.

    However the UN is a mess, there are a lot of problems with it. And I'm not saying it because they work against us most of the time.

    The UN force that has been here for 27 years costs $100,000,000 per year and yet has achieved nothing. Where does all the money go? Do some research about how many people are posted here.

    The UN is far from perfect. Not it's mission but the way it's run.

    You didn't, we did here in Britain (BBC 24)

  • Eugene I hope you and the other Israeli people understand that the media does not always speak for the people. One that I personally cannot watch much anymore is CNN. If I was in your position I think it would probably be easy to think that they speak for the majority but I assure you on this matter, they do NOT. There will always be some who do not believe that anyone should defend themselves but I believe the majority here are with Israel!

    UN = Useless Numbnuts. :)

    Please stay strong and safe.

  • Sarcasm feels great when you write it but it doesn't look that great to readers. It is much more effective just to point out the incorrect statement you want to contradict, state that it is wrong, and then give the facts that prove those statements false. Sarcsam sounds like whining and only loosers whine. Winners are calm cool and confident. People will unconsciously accept the image of yourself that you project through your writing. Most people will not let facts interfere with their prejudices but it can only help get your point across if you project a positive image of yourself.

  • is it any wonder Israel would bomb UN observer locations... Israel is never fond of having observers watch its lopsided wars on it's neighbors, even when the observers are some of Israel's strongest allies:

    By Anonymous Anonymous, at 6:49 PM  

  • I just wanted to reply to the part about the roads being repaired. Roads have a lot to do with transportation for Hezbollah but more to do with people being able to leave. People need roads. In Lebanon, cities are being told to evacuate, but at the same time their roads are being destroyed, the airport is gone, the ports are in pieces. It is hard to displace terrorism with escape because civilians and terrorists are intertwined heavily. This is a mess and the UN has to provide some sort of relief.

  • Debka:

    Jerusalem wants UN secretary Kofi Annan to apologize for accusing Israel of deliberately targeting the UNIFIL post.

    DEBKAfile adds: The holier-than-thou tone of outrage taken by Annan is surprising when it generally known that many UN missions are exploited as the cover for foreign agents, often hostile, to carry out spying operations in war zones. The inadvertent Israeli air strike revealed the fact that the UN force in Lebanon includes Chinese observers. One was killed along with an Austrian, a Canadian and a Finn. The presence of Chinese observers keeping an eye on the combat in South Lebanon has never before been reported.

    Our intelligence experts compare the incident to the inadvertent US bombardment which wrecked the Chinese embassy in Belgrade in 1998 (picture), killing a number of Chinese “diplomats.” It was discovered that from that building the Chinese had operated sophisticated surveillance to track the performance of American warplanes, missiles and smart bombs.

    The Khaim observer post was located near Hizballah positions and training facilities in the eastern sector, where the IDF has launched the next stage of its campaign against Hizballah in southern Lebanon.

  • i feel sorry for the peacekeepers who died but as for the un well.....peace keeper...seems murder and genocide dont count when peace is needed. all organizations countries etc change overtime i feel sad at seeing what has become of the un. in schools here in the us teachers are told to stop all fights and punish both parties. this doesnt work if two guys get into an argument and decide they need to fight let them go at it just dont let them hurt each other to bad. the un takes a similar veiw exceept it ussually punishes only the weastern nations why is that/ in my opinion the un has become nothing more than a joke a shodow of a great dream. i belive annan like so many in the world believe everyone is just alike...think alike love alike hate alike live alike and thinks that all people will accept the logical veiw in the end. ever met a person who refuses to believe in cannot reason with them they dont care about wrong or right good evil only power and that they are seen as right. it is a sad situation we find ourselves in a organization ment for the little people used by the people it was ment to defend against as a weapon against the strong and the just. the weak and helpless. mister anann wke up and smell the coffee/tea. does it make sence for a rapist to sit on the jury of a rapist? yet that is the very situation we find ourselves in. the un was ment to be an organisation for world peace but ignoring the problems and punishing those it was ment to protect is wrong and i and why after 50yrs does this organisation that says it is a peace keeper fail?

  • Israeli's PR is horrible. How come they don't have short "taliking points"? for example:

    1. UN is so upset about the IAF attack that killed 4 UN observers. But why isn't Annan just as outspoken when 5 days later 2 UN observers got hit by a Hizballah rocket?

    2. Annan want's an investigation about Israel killing of civilians. OK, investigate. But what about Hizballah? I mean, because it is so obvious that they are targeting civilians and there is nothing not clear about it... becuase it is clear they are targeting civilians (as opposed to Israel caliming civilians are not the target) then it is OK? then it is not a war crime? I am confused, if you are Israel, and you at least claim to target people firing at you, and because of whatever civilians are killed, that is WORSE and is a war crime, then just targeting civilians from the geco?
