The United Nations has a dagger to the throat of Israel ( 01-12-09 )

God certainly used the United Nations to help set the state of Israel on its way in 1948, but ever since 1948 the U.N. has held a dagger to the throat of Israel. The U.N. has been consistent in taking the side of the Arab Islamic nations against Israel in every situation. The war with Hamas is no exception.

According to Emet News Services the U.N. is still bias.

The Israeli Security Cabinet voted Friday to continue Operation Cast Lead in Gaza despite a United Nations Security Council resolution calling for an immediate ceasefire. "The State of Israel has never agreed that any outside body would determine its right to defend the security of its citizens," "The IDF will continue operations in order to defend Israeli citizens and will carry out the missions with which it has been assigned in the operation."

On Thursday evening, the United Nations Security Council adopted Resolution 1860 calling for a ceasefire in Gaza after Western powers agreed to Arab demands. The resolution "calls for an immediate, durable and fully respected ceasefire" that will lead to a "full withdrawal of Israeli forces from Gaza." It also condemns terror against civilians and calls on Israel to open Gaza crossings and to allow humanitarian aid into Gaza, a move Israel already has done. The Hamas terrorist organization is never mentioned in the resolution. The resolution was presented by the United Kingdom. After standing with Israel in previous meetings, the United States abstained on this vote. [Arutz Sheva, Los Angeles Times]

The UN Security Council has adopted Resolution 1860 calling for a cease-fire in Israel's war with Hamas. It is a remarkable document that acknowledges only one party in the conflict and it is not the one that started the war. While Israel is mentioned five times in the resolution, the word "Hamas" shockingly does not appear once. Well, it would be shocking to anyone unfamiliar with the UN's history. The resolution talks about Israeli withdrawal, the humanitarian issues in Gaza, and declared that Gaza will be part of a Palestinian [sic] state. Nowhere, however, does it condemn the more than 450 rockets that Hamas has fired just since the war began two weeks ago, let alone the roughly 6,000 it launched at Israeli civilians in the preceding three years. What is more surprising is that the Bush Administration abstained on the resolution even though it had earlier said it would not accept such a one-sided resolution, and a few years ago said it would not support resolutions that d
id not explicitly mention the name of the terrorist organizations responsible for violence against Israel. As in the case of the Hizb'Allah War, the UN has stepped in to prevent Israel from exercising its legal right, and moral obligation to defend its citizens, and once again the world just watched.

I believe when Obama is in the White House so will be the United Nations and we  must decide whose side we are really on. Are we going to help hold the dagger or rip it out of the U.N.'s hand?  Yahweh God has chosen Israel - will we?
