John Bolton about the Palestine Solidarity Day
Since Oil-for-food we know of course that uncool Kofi
is keeping bad company. U.S. ambassador John Bolton however has now reminded
Kofi (and some news agencies) that it could also be "misinterpreted" that Kofi particpated to a U.N. event where Israel was literally wiped off the map and where a minute of silence was held for massmurdering Palestinian "martyrs" (Click here
to view a video of the moment of silence):
Bolton's letter complained about the symbolism of Annan attending the latest International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People, held last November 29, along with General Assembly President Jan Eliasson and Russian Ambassador Andrei Denisov, the Security Council president for November.
He questioned whether the United Nations could promote the event when U.S. law prohibits funding such events. Washington's dues cover about a quarter of the regular U.N. budget.
Annan's office was preparing a response to the letter, U.N. chief spokesman Stephane Dujarric said.
He said the secretary-general was grateful [I bet he is! -ed.] that Bolton and others had brought the matter to his attention [he surely was not aware of this -ed.] and had raised the matter of the map with the General Assembly's Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People, which stages the annual event.
It was not Annan but the committee that decided in 1981 to display the pre-1948 map at the annual event, he said [Oh, it's okay then for Kofi having particpated to this gloomy event -ed.].
"This gives a very unfortunate [very unfortunate indeed -ed.] impression that the United Nations favors replacing Israel by a single Palestinian state, which is not the case," he said, stressing that Annan regularly describes Israel as a full U.N. member and strongly disapproved of the Iranian president's comments. [Is this strong disapproval the reason why suddenly Sudan should be foucussed on and not Iran? -ed.]
The United Nations is a member of the quartet of international mediators pursuing a road map to Middle East peace along with the United States, European Union and Russia [what quartet? -ed.].
For the record, this "Palestine Solidarity Day" already took place two and a half months ago. Why are there no other protests to be heard? Why do European Ministers prefer instead to call for a boycott
of Israeli products? Kauft nicht bei Juden
, right? I am glad there are men like Bolton who have the guts to point their finger at such grievances. Of course there will never be any kind of U.N. Committee investigating on the Ongoing Aggression of the Palestinians and their allies against Israel or defending the Inalienable Right of the Jewish people to live in peace and security nor will any minute of silence be held - ever - for the Israeli civilians and soldiers killed by Arab terrorists.
This is what the U.N. is:
defending peace and security
anti-semitic to the core.
