That is were Islam is taking world relations, diplomacy and the U.N., forward into the stone age. And just how is U.N. diplomacy working in the middle east?
Not very well because the U.N. has been taken over by Muslims who are protecting other Muslim terrorists while they use the cover of the U.N. to condemn Israel. The world can not wait for the U.N. if something is going to be done it will have to be done in spite of the U.N.
President Bush is sending U.S. Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice back to the middle east to attempt to negotiate a peace agreement between Israel and Hezbollah to which Shibley Telhami of the Brookings Institution says, "If she does not get a ceasefire she will have failed, the feeling is that Israel is doing Washington's work in the Middle East."
Now just wait a minute, who’s feelings? Muslims? And why is it that Mr. Telhami is projecting failure on Secretary Rice’s efforts when failure has already occurred by the U.N.? I’ll tell you why, it’s because success by the United States will further expose U.N. worthlessness.
First of all Mr. Telhami you’ve recently stated that the Arab world holds the United States responsible for Israel's behavior and believes Jerusalem had been given a green light by Washington to continue launching attacks on Lebanese targets.
But here’s what you’ve failed to mention, U.N. Security Council Resolution 1559! In 2004 the security council passed this resolution stating that Hezbollah should be disband, disarm and vacate Lebanon in additon to that they gave Secretary General Kofi Annan 30 days to see that this was accomplished. So Hezbollah according the the U.N. and international law, should not be in Lebanon in any form or fashion, Hezbollah should not be kidnapping Israeli soldiers and Hezbollah should not be shooting missiles into Israel. According to the U.N. there should no Hezbollah!
So in reality Israel is doing the work of the U.N. not the United States! But because the U.N. is the most inept, corrupt institution ever to attempt to be a world diplomatic organization. President Bush and Secretary of State Condoleezza Rice must do it themselves while the likes of the Brookings Institution hurls untruthful burbs at them.
John Bolton, the U.S. ambassador to the U.N., said it was time for the Security Council to start considering a response, but he, too, ruled out a cease-fire. You know what I say Mr. Bolton? Since 2004, I say it was well over due that the U.N. considered a response!
"I think it's a very fundamental question how a terrorist group agrees to a cease-fire," Bolton said. "How do you hold a terrorist group accountable? Who runs the terrorist group? Who makes the commitments that the terrorist group will abide by a cease-fire? What does a terrorist group think a cease-fire is?"
“Hezbollah is an Islamic militant group that does not recognize Israel as a state. It holds effective military and political control over southern Lebanon, and is the most potent political force on Lebanon's fractured political landscape.”
“As I speak, though, Hezbollah continues to operate in southern Lebanon with impunity, defying the will of the Security Council, as established in Resolution 1559,” said Bolton.
“We are working hard with others to bring about its full implementation and the full extension of its authority by the government over all Lebanese territory.
If that were done, then Israel would be less subject to terrorist attacks and the people of Lebanon would not be subject to the reign of terror that Hezbollah inflicts.
We are actively considering a variety of methods on how best to secure the implementation of Resolution 1559.”
Some member states have called for an immediate cease-fire between Israel and Hezbollah. But we must ask our colleagues, "How do you negotiate and maintain a cease-fire with a terrorist organization, one which does not even recognize the right of Israel to exist?" Yes indeed Mr. Bolton how does one negotiate with a stone age mentially?
The truth is Hezbollah is the U.N.’s failure and this fight is the U.N.’s fight not Israel’s and certainly not the United States but in spite of that Hezbollah says it is fighting a U.S.-Israeli plan to wipe out all Israel's foes in the Middle East and has vowed to accept no "humiliating" terms to end the violence. The truth is Hezbollah is defying U.N. security council resolution 1559 not Israel and not the United States!
International concern has mounted at civilian casualties in the war and at the humanitarian crisis it has caused in Lebanon. Hezbollah fault again, traditionally military or militia protects the innocent. Hezbollah uses the innocent for strategic military advantage, civilians are only sheilds to Hezbollah.
Attempting to negotiate with Islamic terrorist and Islamist who blame Israel and the United States for for their own failings and who are in clear violation of the U.N. and U.N. resolution 1559 has moved world relations toward archaic sharia laws and forward to the stone age. That is what is happening here and that is solely the fault of the United Nations.
