The UN Pappe-Peace-Parley Rolls On
The Moroccan Times spread the warmth in its coverage, which took comfort from the fact that there are Israelis who hate Israel as much as Arabs do. Under the headline, "UN regional seminar on Peace: Israelis condemn Sharon's policy," the newspaper led off its account by joyously reporting that "Shulamit Aloni, former member of the Israeli Knesset and professor of political science in Israel, urged the international community to pay attention to the Israeli systematic policy of genocide against the Palestinian people."
The talking head and frequent op-ed writer Aaron David Miller, picking up on that theme, really hit the nail on the head as he pointed out that the U.S. was nothing more than a tool of the lobbyists for the Zionist entity in Washington: "We in the United States lost control of our own policy, largely to the Israelis," he said, according to the Daily Star in Lebanon.
Yes, as you can see, it was quite an occasion! Peace is clearly spreading in ripples across the sands of the Middle East, one that in the view of the majority of the participants, including the Israeli ones, would be well off without that genocidal Israeli entity.
This annual hate-Israel junket is the brainchild of the seven hundred flacks, bureaucrats and propagandists of the UN's Department of Public Information, known west of First Avenue as the Propaganda Ministry, headed by the often-moonlighting Shashi Tharoor. You'll be pleased to know that the DPI has an office devoted entirely to the crush-Israel cause--the "Palestine, Decolonization and Human Rights Section." True to its mission, in 2001 the DPI brought the notorious anti-Semite Israel Shamir to its annual anti-Israel media conclave.
At the commencement of the festivities, Tharoor read a syrupy message to the attendees from UN Secretary General Kofi Annan, saying that "With help from responsible media -- media that refrain from myths, stereotypes and hate propaganda – they can avoid inflaming an already volatile climate." As you can see, Aloni knew precisely what that meant and followed through. So did such advocates of coexistence and kisses and hugging Israelis as the Islamic Republic News Agency of Iran and the Electronic Intifada, the latter next to an article depicting Israeli journalists as "monkeys."
These are your tax dollars at work, folks! Twenty-two percent of the cost of this media extravaganza, from airfares and hotels in Cairo to (probably) honoraria for the Moonbat attendees and facilities and the salaries of UN bureaucrats--hey, if you live in the U.S., one-fifth is your share. Be sure to write your congressman and tell him to free up the U.S. contribution to the United Nations, so we can have more good stuff like this!
