U.N. wants Israel to renounce nuclear weapons

Here’s Exhibit No 4,566,298 that the world is completely upside-down, backwards, inside-out, and inverted: the United Nations wants Israel to renounce nuclear weapons.  Yahoo News reports:

UNITED NATIONS (AP) — The U.N. General Assembly overwhelmingly approved an Arab-backed resolution Tuesday calling on Israel to renounce possession of nuclear weapons and put its nuclear facilities under international oversight.

The resolution, adopted in a 161-5 vote, noted that Israel is the only Middle Eastern country that is not party to the Treaty on the Non-Proliferation of Nuclear Weapons. It called on Israel to "accede to that treaty without further delay, not to develop, produce test or otherwise acquire nuclear weapons, to renounce possession of nuclear weapons" and put its nuclear facilities under the safeguard of the U.N.'s International Atomic Energy Agency.

The United States and Canada were among four countries that joined Israel in opposing the measure, while 18 countries abstained.

Israel is widely considered to possess nuclear arms but declines to confirm it.

The resolution, introduced by Egypt, echoed a similar Arab-backed effort that failed to gain approval in September at the Vienna-based IAEA….

And this, my friends, is one among far too many examples of why the United Nations needs to be dissolved.  It is a farce.  Worse than a farce.  It has become a legitimate place where Islamic nations convene to inflict their sickness upon the civilized world.
