The total failure of the UN concerning Iran, terrorism, and human rights issues is glaringly evident. The UN has been useless for years, internationally accepted as being little more than a stage for blustery rhetoric and hollow threats. Obama’s failure, however, has emboldened aggressive nation’s leaders, making it much more dangerous.
Iran’s Mahmoud Ahmadinejad, has benefited the most from Obama’s failure, bringing his nuclear weapons program to near fruition with impunity. Obama’s “multi-lateral approach” has failed to enforce US sanctions against Iran and, instead, has granted exemptions from those sanctions to all of Iran’s oil-trading partners.
Speaking at Tehran University, Ahmadinejad arrogantly proclaimed: “The existence of the Zionist regime is an insult to all humanity” and confronting Israel is an effort to “protect the dignity of all human beings”. Israel is on the brink of attacking Iran’s nuclear facilities to prevent an Iranian nuclear attack, but Ahmadinejad seems confident Israel will not get needed support from Obama to do that. Obama’s weakness is responsible for Ahmadinejad’s confidence and increasing aggression.
Not so coincidently, Saudi cleric Salman Al-Odeh declared on an Arab TV station that the Holocaust is an “exaggeration” and that Jewish people consume the blood of children. He elaborated seriously on this despicable Arab-propagated myth, deliberately stirring up hatred. This comes from a cleric in a supposedly US-friendly nation, preparing followers for active aggression against Israel. No US response is expected.
Obama’s failure to act during the Arab Spring takeover of Egypt by the Muslim Brotherhood has doomed that country. There are now reports that radical Muslims in Egypt are actually crucifying opponents of their president, Mohammed Morsi, on trees outside the presidential palace. There is no fear of reprisal from Obama.
Obama was weaned on a far-left agenda treating all cultures and nations with moral equivalence, except the United States, which is judged to be malevolent. Obama’s international failure is a direct result of that agenda. Heavily invested in Obama, the liberal media has tried to hide that failure, but the consequences are now too evident.
We are on the brink of a Middle East explosion, and Obama helped light the fuse. The UN’s incompetency pales in comparison.
