Time is ripe for Israel to quit the biased UN

SURPRISE, surprise! Yet again the United Nations passes resolution after resolution criticising and condemning the State of Israel.

We all know about the UN bias, but on one day alone there were 10 anti-Israel resolutions passed.

Maybe they were trying to get into the Guinness Book of Records.

In its current format — with one member, one vote — the UN seems to spend so much of its time discussing, and then passing, anti-Israel resolutions.

One wonders if they could continue to function as a full-time body without Israel.

I understand that most of the resolutions are non-binding, but Security Council decisions can be another matter.

Therefore, if Israel wasn’t a member of the UN then obviously there wouldn’t be any point in passing any resolutions against them or even discussing them.

That being the case, it would be a disaster for the UN and other agencies such as UNESCO as it might mean they would have to discuss other member states, such as, Syria, Iran, North Korea and Rwanda.

Maybe it’s about time that Israel actually leaves, which would then give the organisation more time to discuss and focus on other member states which might need their attention.
