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passed a non-binding resolution approved by 128 states, declaring Trump’s announcement is “null and void and must be rescinded.”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.
