Here’s a wonderful reason for just saying NO to the many UN treaties out there – one of which (The UN Small Arms Treaty) Senator Kaine seems to like!

Breitbart reports that the Chairman of the UN Human Rights Council, Navi Pilay, has accused Israel of possible war crimes and one of which is that the Jewish State will not share its missile defense Iron Dome with – wait for it! – Hamas!  Don’t take my word for it – look here:

Among the UN’s long bill of particulars against the beleaguered Jewish state comes the almost unbelievable accusation that Israel’s refusal to share its Iron Dome ballistic missile defense shield with the “governing authority” of Gaza – i.e. Hamas, the terror group created to pursue the extermination of the Jewish state and now waging a terrorist war against it – constitutes a war crime against the civilians of Gaza.

The UN chairwoman criticized the U.S. for helping fund Israel’s Iron Dome system which has saved countless Israeli and Palestinian lives. “No such protection has been provided to Gazans against the shelling,” she said.

It is unbelievable to see such ideas that pass for logical thought but this is logical thought in the UN.  But there’s more:

Marking the end of her contentious, six-year term as chairman of the notoriously anti-Israel UNHRC, Pillay saved her harshest condemnations for what she termed Israeli “targeting” of UN-run schools and hospitals in Gaza. She did not mention, nor was she reminded by any of the reporters present, that as of this writing, at least three UN-run schools in Gaza have been used as rocket warehouses, a gross violation of international law that clearly falls within the category of war crimes. Neither did she mention, nor was she reminded, that in at least two of the three cases cited above, the terror rockets found on UN property in Gaza were returned to Hamas by the UN.

We are thankful that this is the end of Pilay’s term but she’ll probably be replaced by someone worse.  But the failure of the press associated with the UN to do their job is also inexcusable.  The UN cannot be counted on to meet our needs or protect Israel.  Another good reason to support Ambassador John Bolton for President in 2016.  Also another reason to JUST SAY NO to every UN treaty until further notice unless it is in the US’s clear national interest and does not infringe on our sovereignty or the supramacy of the Constitution (next to the Bible most dear!) as the ultimate law of the land.
