The bankruptcy and absurdity of the UN is once again on display. Syrian's UN envoy, who once presided as President of the UN Security Council, now blames Israel of starting World War 1 and World War 2, ignoring the inconvenient fact that Israel did not exist then. Such profundity! The inmates are in charge of the asylum.
A verbal brawl erupted at the Security Council yesterday as it debated the subject of terrorism. During the skirmish, Syria accused Israel of starting World Wars I and II, as well as "contemplating" a third world war.
The anti—Semitic outburst by the Syrian representative, Ahmad Alhariri, as well as allegations by his Iranian colleague, Ahmad Sadeghi, countered comments from Israel's U.N. ambassador, Dan Gillerman, who said both Syria and Iran are part of an "axis of terror" that would pit them against a group of anti—terrorism "allies" in a "World War III."
