UN Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon has left the Israeli regime off the latest annual UN list of parties which kill or injure children during armed conflicts.
Yet, in the summer of 2014, Israel killed around 600 children. Despite this, Israel has not been named in the annual report, perhaps in part because of threats to its funding from US Senators if Israel were included.
Furthermore, the UN recently condemned the US for its atrocious human rights record but the US is still not complying. It is as if America is immune to the kind of UN sanctions Washington proposes on other countries for similar violations.
Meanwhile, although the UN Security Council has passed a resolution to place an arms embargo on the freedom fighters in Yemen, known as the Ansarullah movement, they have done no such thing against the regime that's actually doing the bombing: Saudi Arabia.
This adds to a growing global perception that the UN is biased, corruptible and, as far as fairness is concerned, irrelevant. For example, Syria has urged the UN to take decisive action against Turkey, which is a key pathway for weapons to reach ISIL terrorists in Syria. If the UN refuses to act, some believe this would spell the beginning of the end in many countries for any credibility that remains with the UN.
