UN's anti-Israel Bias

I have read or heard statements at least a dozen times that the UN harbors some anti-Israel bias.

The link above contains a reference to this alleged anti-Israel bias by the ADL, the Anti-Defamation League (which some people have claimed specializes in defamation of character).

I guess the whole world is anti-semitic , Mr. Foxman. I guess it cannot have anything to do with the actual record, like Israel's defiance of UN resolutions, like Israel's attacks on UN headquarters in Lebanon, like Israel's contraventions of international law and the Geneva conventions, like Israel's attack on the USS Liberty on June 8, 1967 (which it lied about later and the US government covered up), like the many Zionist terror groups like the Haganah, the Irgun, and the Stern gang, like the coordinated efforts to terrorize the Palestinians into fleeing (Deir Yassin), like its involvement in the Lavon affair, like its black operations in Tripoli which triggered a US bombing campaign against Libya under Reagan, like its pre-emptive attacks on Egypt, like its annexing pieces of neighboring states (West Bank, the Golan Heights, Shebaa Farms, the Sinai (which it gave back to Egypt), the Gaza (which it still lords over creating humanitarian crises), like its demolitions of Palestinians homes and orchards, like its continued expansions of settlements on Palestinian land, like its Apartheid Wall, like its secret nuclear arsenal which is used to intimidate the entire Arab world, like its treatment of Palestinian medical workers, like its treatment of international humanitarian workers (a la Rachel Corrie and Tove Johansson et al), like its invasion and occupation of Lebanon (which it occupied for 18 plus years) , like its destruction of Lebanon last summer, like its dungeons holding close to 10,000 political prisoners who are resisting Israeli theft of Palestinian and Lebanese land, of and worst of all, its refusal to recognize the sanctity of non-Israeli life.

Now, some people would have you believe that the whole world is picking on poor little Israel. And this ploy has worked historically on the US populace, but the tide is starting to turn. The pro-Israel ideologues have cried wolf one time too many. The pro-Israel zealots have sent US troops to fight in Iraq for their beloved state. The pro-Israel zealots have given millions upon millions of dollars to US congresspeople via AIPAC and its offspring to keep funding the poor innocent victim state, which has really compromised US security. The US keeps funding the most aggressive and most fanatical nation in the world, and the world hates the US for this support. When do we ask the $64,000 question : at what point does the US cut the harmful parasite off its sickly body?

Walt and Mearsheimer were right ; the US-Israeli alliance is hurting the US, and Americans need to get involved to change this.

Below is a link to a list of UN resolutions concerning Israel's behavior.
