Hated Of All Nations – Israel Blamed Again And Again By UN For Middle East Woes
By Matt Ward
Sweden’s Foreign Minister, Margot Wallstrom, got straight to the point. Cutting to the heart of the matter she revealed that she knew exactly who was to blame for the unrest setting the Middle East on fire.
Foreign Minister Wallstrom revealed that all the Islamic terrorism and brutality, all the beheadings, all the abhorrent crucifixions – including those of tiny children carried out in the name of Islam by ISIS, all the pillaging, all of the wanton destruction of people, cities and nations, could be laid at the feet of one entity alone.
The fault does not lay with ISIS, nor is the blame to rest with radical Islam, or Islam in general, she said. Islam is, she believes, a religion of peace. The responsibility for all the unrest in the Middle East, even the blame for the recent massacres in Paris, lays squarely at the feet of Israel.
What a terrible blood libel on Israel and the Jewish people this is.
It is a view widely reflected in the corridors of the United Nations. Each month at the United Nations brings another series of condemnations solely aimed at Israel. Last week, six resolutions were passed against the tiny Jewish State. No other nation state received any condemnation, just Israel.
At a time when the Middle East is descending into an horrific bloodbath unseen in living memory, when entire population groups are being forced into mass migrations to other continents, when the Christian population of the entire region is being systematically wiped out, the UN finds the time to focus all its attention upon tiny little Israel. Over 75% of all UN condemnation resolutions ever passed have been solely against Israel.
To date, North Korea has received 8 condemnations. Iran has received 5, South Sudan has received 0, as have Saudi Arabia, Somalia, Sudan, Uganda, Egypt, Bangladesh, China, Cuba, Lebanon, Iraq, Pakistan, Turkey, Zimbabwe, Yemen and Venezuela. Israel currently has 62.
Little wonder this is so when one looks at UN institutions like the Human Rights Council, an organization populated by every type and kind of Jewish hating nation.
Its current chair is Saudi Arabia. That the UN would pick a country that competes with ISIS for the number of people it has beheaded this year is scandalous. Saudi Arabia is one of the worst violators of human rights on the planet. Making them chair of the Human Rights Council, which often condemns Israel, is like making a pyromaniac into the town fire chief.
Iran routinely and openly infringes on the terms of the UN Security Council rubber-stamped nuclear deal, yet has received not a word of protest, let alone an official condemnation. This Iranian regime, led by the Ayatollah Seyyed Ali Khamenei, regularly states that the single function of this nuclear program is to “…wipe Israel off the map.” At the UN nobody bats an eye to this obvious incitement to genocide.
In the year 2013 there were a total of 21 UN resolutions directly condemning Israel, but only 4 for the rest of the world, despite the fact that this was the year Bashir al-Assad first used WMD in the Syrian civil war, unleashing chemical weapons against the Syrian rebel forces. Thus far, it is estimated he has used chemical weapons ten times. No UN resolution of condemnation for Assad though.
In this same year there were zero resolutions on the gross and systematic abuses committed by China, Cuba, Egypt, Pakistan, Russia, Saudi Arabia, Sri Lanka, Sudan, Zimbabwe, nor on many other major perpetrators of grave violations of human rights.
In 2012, the UN adopted 9 resolutions against Israel vis-à-vis Palestinians and the Golan, yet remained completely silent on the increasing Syrian massacres against the same Palestinian peoples.
There is an obvious bias and hatred of the tiny Jewish State and it is a clear fulfilment of Bible prophecy. We should expect to see increasingly unjust and bizarre condemnations world-wide against Israel in the coming months and years.
We are witnessing the ongoing abandonment of Israel by all the world. This all-encompassing, visceral and growing hatred towards Israel is one of the clearest indicators of the lateness of the hour.
The word of God is clear, Jerusalem is a burdensome stone and at the time of the end all the world will come against her. (Zechariah 12:3) We are witnessing the beginnings of that process now.
Ultimately God will allow Israel to go to such a place of complete international isolation that they will have no other option but to turn to Him, to cry out for Him. This process of abandonment by the world is an indicator that God is once again beginning to turn His attention to dealing with His holy inheritance, Israel.
This means that the closing of the Gentile age must be close at hand.
