Fiddling while people burn
While the UN uselessly fiddles its usual discordant tunes
"The General Assembly approved six pro-Palestinian resolutions over U.S. and Israeli objections, culminating the annual U.N. debate aimed at showing the world body's solidarity with Palestinian demands for an independent homeland. Darfur is potentially genocidally burning , and
"At the end of three days of speeches, the 192-member world body on Friday reaffirmed the U.N.'s responsibility regarding the Palestinian question and stressed the Palestinian peoples' right to self-determination and an independent state."
"is now in "free fall" with six million people facing the prospect of going without food or protection, the outgoing U.N. humanitarian chief said Tuesday." And just who is leading this deadly force? Jan Egeland, the outgoing UN humanitarian chief, blamed
"... the Sudanese government, parts of the rebel movement, ethnic leaders in Darfur, and the government of Chad for fueling the war, which began in 2003 when rebels from ethnic African tribes rose up against the Arab-led central government. Khartoum is accused of retaliating by unleashing the janjaweed militias of Arab nomads, who are accused of the worst atrocities." Hmmm. While annually commandeering the UN General Assembly to bash Israel while refusing to acknowledge Israel's existence and make any type of peace, the Arabs and their willing acolytes perpetuate genocidal war over large parts of Africa. Those poignant ads to save Darfur, those well meaning rallies to save Darfur and those other self satisfied actions will be tragically useless unless and until these activities are directed at forcing the UN, the Arabs and the others to really save Darfur and all those other areas caught up in these deadly conflicts.
