Krauss: Threat of a Second Holocaust
"The mutation of the world's oldest hatred, in a West that stood by during the first Holocaust, cries out for immediate response. Who, apart from America, is willing to furnish one?" asks Professor Michael Krauss, writing of his perception of a double standard in the international community, and in particular within the United Nations, in matters concerning Israel.
The UN's Jew-Obsession, American Thinker, November 27, 2006. By Michael I. Krauss and J. Peter Pham.
"Only a U.S. veto, wielded by Ambassador John Bolton, avoided a UN Security Council resolution condemning Israel which would have been legally binding, opening the way to sanctions. Ambassador Bolton was furious at the blatant perfidy of the international body. His remarks are worth quoting at some length. 'This type of resolution serves only to exacerbate tensions by serving the interests of elements hostile to Israel's inalienable and recognized right to exist,' he noted. 'This deepens suspicions about the United Nations that will lead many to conclude that the organization is incapable of playing a helpful role in the region.' 'In a larger sense, the United Nations must confront a more significant question, that of its relevance and utility in confronting the challenges of the 21st century. We believe that the United Nations is ill served when its members seek to transform the organization into a forum that is a little more than a self-serving and a polemical attack against Israel or the United States,' Bolton continued. 'The problem of anti-Israel bias is not unique to the Human Rights Council. It is endemic to the culture of the United Nations. It is a decades-old, systematic problem that transcends the whole panoply of the UN organizations and agencies.' [This is the man the Democrats want to eliminate as our UN ambassador - we think he should win the Nobel Peace Prize.]"
