UN resolutions critical of Israel blocked

1) On November 15, 2010, U.S. President Barack Obama praised Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu for urging his cabinet to accept a U.S. proposal to extend a freeze on West Bank settlement building for 90 days. Under the plan, Washington would block UN resolutions critical of Israel, and supply Israel with fighter jets worth $3 billion. The US government also promised Israel that after the 90-day moratorium, they would not seek an extension, and settlement construction in the West Bank and East Jerusalem (all of which is illegal under international law) could continue unabated.

2) In February 2011, more than 100 nations voted for a U.N. resolution that would have condemned illegal Israeli settlements and halted any new construction. The United States vetoed it.

3) On February 19, 2011, Israel said it was deeply grateful to the United States after it vetoed a United Nations resolution put forward by the Palestinian leadership condemning Israeli settlement activity.

4) On  Oct 27, 2011, Israeli jetfighters engaged in aerial bombing of the Palestinian city of Khan Yunes in the Gaza Strip.

Ukraine: Destabilization Know-How Put into Practice

26.01.2014

The sudden intensification of Ukraine’s extremists appears to be spurred by Americans who cannot lose time and wait till the date of presidential election in 2015. The main task is to prevent the rapprochement between Ukraine and Russia, no way should they let Kiev sway to the East under the influence of what they call the «Putin’s economic expansion» meaning the December 17 bilateral Russia-Ukraine accords. Washington and Brussels are in haste because the choice for Ukraine’s closer cooperation with the Customs Union will automatically swing public support to Viktor Yanukovych making him the winner in 2015...

United Nations Human Rights Council: Washington's toy

1) United Nations Human Rights Council: Lybia - March 1, 2011

'UN General Assembly Suspends Libya's Human Rights Council Membership'

Press Statement
Hillary Rodham Clinton
Secretary of State
Washington, DC

The United States applauds the move by the UN General Assembly to suspend Libya’s membership rights in the Human Rights Council in Geneva. We continue to demand an immediate halt to the violence perpetrated by the Qadhafi government against its own citizens. The General Assembly today has made it clear that governments that turn their guns on their own people have no place on the Human Rights Council.

Today’s historic action is the first time that any country serving on the Human Rights Council, or the Commission before it, has ever had its membership suspended. The international community is speaking with one voice and our message is unmistakable: these violations of universal rights are unacceptable and will not be tolerated.

Two years ago, the United States announced that we would seek to join the Human Rights Council with a commitment to reform the Council from within. The actions the Council has taken over the last few days, setting the stage for today’s decision, is the latest example that our engagement is paying dividends, even as we keep pressing for further reforms.

The United States will continue to work with the international community on additional steps to hold the Qadhafi government accountable, provide humanitarian assistance to those in need, and support the Libyan people as they pursue a transition to democracy.

2) United Nations Human Rights Council: Syria - June 5, 2013

'Russia: Use of UNHRC to Benefit Extremist Opposition Hinders Resolving Syrian Crisis'

The Russian Foreign Ministry said that using the United Nations Human Rights Council (UNHRC) to support one side of the crisis in Syria creates an obstacle for preparing the international conference to resolve the crisis due to be held in Geneva.

A statement published on the Ministry's website on Wednesday said that the use of the UNHRC to benefit one side of the crisis in Syria, specifically the extremist opposition, does not help find a way out of the Syrian crisis.

The statement pointed out that the bias of the report submitted at the UNHRC was exploited by some countries' delegation to once again assign blame for what is happening in Syria to the Syrian government, all while neglecting the many crimes and human rights violation committed by armed terrorist groups.

The Foreign Ministry said that the experts who submitted the aforementioned reported didn't bother to listen to the victims and witnesses to violence perpetrated by extremists, although these experts admitted that the growing numbers of extremists among gunmen in Syria are committing summary executions, torture, abduction and employ children in aggressive actions.

The statement also noted that the committee in charge of the report once again decided not to include bombings committed by armed groups in Syrian cities in the list of terrorist acts; it even refused to describe them as terrorist acts!

The Ministry said that the atrocities committed by extremists are being condoned through remaining silent over them, especially rape and violence against women.

War against Syria: the UN as an outdated colonial institution...

Obama.Ban+Ki+Moon+World+Leaders.jpg

1) Obama signed a secret order authorizing U.S. support for Syrian terrorists seeking to depose Syrian President Bashar al-Assad and his government.  Obama’s order, approved earlier this year and known as an intelligence “finding,” broadly permits the CIA and other U.S. agencies to provide support that could help the terrorists oust Assad.  C.I.A. officers are operating secretly in southern Turkey. The weapons, including automatic rifles, rocket-propelled grenades, ammunition and some antitank weapons, are being funneled mostly across the Turkish border by way of a shadowy network of intermediaries including Syria’s Muslim Brotherhood and paid for by Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Qatar. The United States is setting up joint military, intelligence and medical working teams with Israel, Turkey and Jordan.

2) British Foreign Secretary William Hague said Britain would step up its support for the armed groups in Syria, providing them with an additional £5 million (US$7.8 million). The money is used for bomb attacks in Syria.

3) An official source told a SANA reporter that the seized arms included Nato sniper rifles, machineguns, hunting rifles, explosive devices of various weights, devices for remote control detonation and an amount of batteries and electrical wires.

4) Belgian Senator Nele Lijnen said that she intends to launch a discussion at the Belgian Senate regarding the fact that the terrorists in Syria possess weapons made in Belgium. 

5) The Swiss Authorities announced that they are investigating into information published by Sonntags Zeitung newspaper about hand grenades used by armed terrorist groups in Syria.

6) The weapons and military equipment recently discovered and seized by the Syrian Army in Idlib province proves NATO's arms and logistic support for terrorists in Syria.

7) The seized weapons in Salqain district in Idlib included 7.26 guns along with other weapons as well as boxes of gunshots with the words "NATO BALL" carved on them.

8) The Lebanese army intelligence has seized a large quantity of wea Lutfallah II container pons hidden inside cars aboard an Italian ship at Tripoli port, north of Lebanon, Lebanese security sources told Al-Manar TV.

9) This comes just days after the Lebanese Army Marines confiscated Lutfallah II arms shipment off the Lebanese port of Batoun while it was carrying 300,000 pounds of weapons within three containers. Reports said the cargo ship, which was flying the flag of Sierra-Leone, had left Libya and was bound to Syria.

10) Lebanese terrorist Mohammad Hussein Fares confessed to participating in smuggling weapons, militants and journalists into Syria and committing terrorists acts against Syrians.

11) Fares said that they smuggled assault rifles, RPG rounds, sniper rifles, LAW missiles, machineguns and cases of ammo, delivering them to Amoun, with al-Jarban coming later to distribute them among terrorists.

12) US, Qatar and Saudi Arabia are arming AL-QAEDA Terrorists to commit Terrorism in Syria.

13) Over 30,000 various weapons have been channelled to Syria since unrest flared up there in April last year, Amin Khteit says. The overall amount of explosives makes up 300 tons. The deliveries were made by Qatar and Saudi Arabia. They depend on the United States, which is making every effort to overpower Syria.

14) The authorities seized weapons smuggled from Turkey in Tal Abyad area on the Syrian-Turkish borders in Raqqa countryside.

15) A Turkish parliamentarian has stressed that Turkish ambulances are transporting weapons to terrorist groups in Syria, expressing their opposition to Ankara's policies on the Syrian case.

Syria: Ban Ki-Moon, Secretary-General of the United Nations - 'mediating role'

Afbeelding

Some days ago, Ban Ki-Moon called the UN Security Council for keeping a ‘flexible and effective presence of the UN in Syria', adding that this presence will help the UN envoy continue playing the 'mediating role'.

But there was little to see of the 'mediating role' of the UN in Libya.  The UN participated to the US war propaganda; accepted that NATO armed the Libyan 'Freedom-gangs' and mandated a so called 'no fly zone over Libya'.  It is on this way that Libya was bombed and destroyed.

Ban Ki Moon made also a deal with Obama about Palestine.  On the demand of Washington and Tel Aviv, all the resolutions within the UN Council critical of Israel, are blocked.

Ki-Moon Stresses Need to Keep UN Presence in Syria

Aug 12, 2012

NEW YORK, (SANA) – Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-Moon on Saturday hoped that the UN will still be presented in Syria after the end of the observer mission.

In a letter to the UN Security Council, Ki-Moon called for keeping a ‘flexible and effective’ presence of the UN in Syria, adding that this presence will help the UN envoy continue playing the 'mediating role'.
