Israel Refuses to Stop Waging its ‘Campaign’ to Starve the Palestinians – Frank Wright 4/30/24

Source: LifeSiteNews.com

On April 20, an independent report commissioned by the United Nations found that Israel had supplied “no evidence” to back its claims that the United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) was “totally infiltrated by Hamas.”

The claim, made by Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to a U.N. assembly on January 31, was backed by U.S. Secretary of State Antony Blinken, who said the charge was “very, very credible.”

U.S. backing for the claims led to the suspension of funding for UNRWA, which is widely acknowledged to be the main provider of food, water, and medical supplies to the Palestinians in Gaza. According to Israeli media, this was the aim of an Israeli “campaign” to defund the only agency capable of preventing famine in Gaza.

Having lived through more than four years of systematic subjection to gaslighting as well as misinformation by the mainstream media, governments and non-elected, private global companies, those among us who sojourn in the land of the awake and awakened, would understand the metaphor of ‘looking at shadows.’ And if you do, perhaps some readers might recall that in the 4th century BCE there was an ancient Greek philosopher named Plato, who invented a myth involving shadows to explain the congenitally deceptive character of the human world in space and time.

A solid majority of American citizens now recognize that Biden’s many millions of alleged refugees are anything but the real deal. In all probability, some of these illegal immigrants are members of the “tired and poor” seeking a shortcut into the United States, but also include a number of spies, drug mules, human traffickers, criminals, and convicts. As for legitimate refugees, in all likelihood they represent less than 10% of the total.

The UN’s Annual $8 Billion Budget to Support Global Migration – Robert W. Malone MD 1/31/24

The mission creep of the United Nations has gotten way out of control. As just one of many examples, the UN mission to unilaterally encourage global migration has resulted in multiple avoidable political crises. It is past time to de-fund and re-organize the United Nations. In the case of the US Congress under the current executive, in the immediate future this can be accomplished through use of specific restrictions on how appropriations can be used, much as is commonly done with internal budgeting. Looking forward to a new executive administration, this should be coupled with diplomatic efforts to build an international coalition of nations which will support a major defunding and restructuring effort.

The United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA), which is responsible for aiding the Palestinian refugee population and is especially vital to the people of Gaza — now suffering an Israeli imposed famine — has suddenly been defunded by Western nations. The move to withdraw funding comes as an immediate response to Israel’s allegation that employees of the agency were involved in the Hamas-led October 7 attack. However, it is clear that Israel’s claims are disingenuous.

United Nations Secretary-General António Guterres “had just invoked Art.99 of the UN Charter – for the 1st time in [his] tenure as Secretary-General.” Article 99 states that “The Secretary-General may bring to the attention of the Security Council any matter which in his opinion may threaten the maintenance of international peace and security.” It was the first time it had been invoked since 1989.

The fifteen member Security Council responded by holding a meeting to vote on an immediate humanitarian ceasefire in Gaza. European Union foreign policy chief Josep Borrell “ask[ed] the EU members of the UN Security Council and like-minded partners to support” the resolution. Thirteen nations voted in favor of the resolution. The UK abstained. The US used its veto as a permanent member to block the resolution and ensure that it did not pass. The US stood alone.

An overwhelming majority of national government delegations passed a resolution in the United Nations General Assembly on Friday calling for an “immediate, durable and sustained humanitarian truce” between Israel and Hamas. The statement also “demands the immediate, continuous, sufficient and unhindered provision of essential goods and services to civilians throughout the Gaza Strip.”

Titled “Protection of civilians and upholding legal and humanitarian obligations,” the resolution was passed by 90 percent of the voting nations, with a final tally of 121 voting in favor, 14 against, and 44 abstentions.

Charter, the pillars of peaceful relations among nations. . ..” But America’s past performance on these very issues weaken the persuasiveness and sincerity of the appeal.
