How the UN Oppresses the Islamic World

People reading the title of this article should be excused for doing a double-take. To most of us the United Nations has been -- especially in the last few decades -- a debating society dedicated to the promulgation of anti-Semitism. It seems all the organization does is pass resolutions condemning Israel, that is when they're not launching investigations of the same country via their Human Rights Council, a latter-day branch of the Wehrmacht, led by posturing Third World bigots, that usually meets at beachfront resorts.

Even UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon has been a tiny bit perturbed of late by the orgy of Jew-hatred emanating from the organization he heads. Forget Boko Haram and ISIS, forget 170,000 dead in Syria -- it's the Jews that are the problem.

But this has all been going on for so long and with such idiotic single-mindedness that it has become a joke. Hardly anyone with half a brain would take it seriously -- except perhaps a member of the Brandeis faculty, and they absolutely do have half a brain.

And Israel, if you haven't noticed, is doing pretty well as one of the world leaders in everything from microchips to medical research, possibly the world leader for their size. Most recently, they've come up with a way to diagnose cervical cancer with a smartphone. An Israeli tech company, Mobileye (a purveyor to Tesla), was able to break a record for one of their nation's companies with an 890 million dollar IPO last week right in the midst of the Gaza conflagration and a global stock meltdown.

As you may also have noticed, the Islamic world hasn't been having a lot of tech IPOs lately. They've been too busy killing each other -- and everybody else -- for a long time.

What's the cause of this? Well, there are many that are not the subject of this article, but the United Nations is -- and the United Nations has been a principle enabler of Islamic decline for decades.
