In or out of UN?

This is probably against my better interest but I’ll say it anyway.
[Dave suggested I post something we don’t necessarily on which prompted this]

Stay in the UN — like what are the options? Be careful what you ask for.

I will not apologize for the UN or its idiotic behavior, even evils, but I don’t think we should bail out of it. If not for us and our vote, Israel would really have no vote or allies.

They’d be standing in a world minus their one ally. And it may even make much of the world happy to see us get out. Just saying.

And we still need to have what influence we have in the body and getting out would not do us any big favors. Funding it by their lonesome and moving it somewhere else might be a challenge for them, but they would probably find some way, with their miscreant connections.

While that might make a few people mad, I don’t see the alternative as too attractive.

Here’s an example:

A quote from Brookings Institute:

Just three years ago, the United States absented itself from the world’s principal diplomatic forum for human rights because it felt it couldn’t get its way on every issue. As a result, it ceded important ground to the very governments it criticized for their human rights practices, leaving our closest allies, including Israel, and human rights defenders around the world exposed.

Now, after two years of active engagement as a member of the Human Rights Council, the United States can show real results that prove that staying and fighting for our core values is worth the effort, as I noted in my testimony to the House Foreign Affairs Committee this month.

Much Of The World Still Hates Jews – J.D. Longstreet

Much Of The World Still Hates Jews
Our Anti-Semitic World

By: J. D. Longstreet

Today, the world’s hatred of the Jews is just as vehement, just as rabid, as it was when Hitler was murdering six million of them in his gas chambers and concentration camps in Europe in the 1930’s and 1940’s. Frankly, I am not sure that given a chance to do it again, much of the world would just stand by, again, and allow it to happen. Millions would simply look the other way… then claim they were not aware it was happening. Sound familiar? It does to my generation.

There is a sickness deep down in the rotten core of the human race that allows a hatred this deep. You want to see racism? You want to see bigotry, you want to see black, mindless, wrathful hate, and pure stinking jealousy? Then look into the souls of the people who will allow a country, Israel, to be pounded day after day by a people sworn to wipe them from the face of the earth, a people who will not even recognize the right of the Jews to exist, to live, to breath, and walk the same earth as they do. There you will see the blackness of hell.

Those who support the people who spend their days and nights searching for ways to kill, maim, and in any way possible, deny the basic right of life to a whole people (because they are Jews) are, themselves, assuredly assigned to the deepest, hottest, level of Hell itself.

Someone must stand up and call them what they are… angels of perdition, angels of death.

Israel, the ancestral homeland of the Jews, has been a country since the late 1940’s. Within twenty-four hours of the United Nations proclaiming them a state, they were attacked, from all quarters, by the Arabs.

That tiny, little, infant of a country managed to whip every last one of the Arab countries coming against them.

Every day since 1948 Israel has had to fight to exist. From kidnappings to wholesale slaughter of the Israelis — the world has watched and pretended not to see. That is sick, people!
