The United Nations Long Ago Lost Its Moral Authority To Tut-Tut At Trump Over Jerusalem

An organization like the United Nations that is rife with corruption doesn’t have the moral authority to tell the United States what to do.

On December 21, the 193-member UN General Assembly held an emergency special session at the request of Arab and Muslim states. The session was aimed at rebuking President Trump’s recent announcement to recognize Jerusalem as Israel’s capital.

Not surprisingly, the special session passed a non-binding resolution approved by 128 states, declaring Trump’s announcement is “null and void and must be rescinded.” But this resolution only serves as the latest example that the UN lacks moral authority to resolve the thorniest world affairs.

    Their moral authority died with Dag Hammarskjöld in 1961.

      I never knew anything about Dag being too young to be interested in politics of any sort other than my late father was a big fan of his.

        Both he and his predecessor Trygve Lie were even handed Scandinavians, after that it went to an African… with their values.

    USA should expel the UNO to some allah forsaken muslim majority third world shithole so its denizens not only get to talk the talk but can also have the pleasure of walking the walk.

      Yes, but which muslim country: Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Iran are all vying for the status of the headquarters of the new worldwide Caliphate. Saudi less so, since it already controls the muslim holy cities of Mecca and Medina, but it doesn’t want the Caliphate to be formed anywhere else since that would make them a target for takeover if the rest of the muslim world accepted this external Caliphate.

    Time to find some rails and resurrect the old tradition of riding these pricks out of town on them.
