More on the 'Pro-Israel' UN

A couple of months ago, the Payola Pundit, UN consultant-correspondent Ian Williams, expounded on how horribly the UN had deviated from the bash-Israel line. Williams hammers again at the subject in the Washington Report on Middle Eastern Affairs.

This would not be worth mentioning except for some unintentional humor:

Excoriating Florida congresswoman Ileana Ros-Lehtinen for pushing some sensible UN refugee agency reforms, Williams has the gall to say that Ros-Lehtinen is doing it for the bucks: "Her position makes her a major recipient of pro-Israel campaign contributions." This from a creep who gained notoriety for doing work for the UN while covering it for various publications.

Williams then asks if Ros-Lehtinen would "be prepared to see green cards issued for [Palestinian refugees] to resettle in Florida?" Williams knows a thing or two about the immigration laws -- and there is a scandal prove it. His wife Anora Mahmudova got a job at the UN correspondent association even though she wasn't allowed to work in the U.S. She is now does fake-news reports for hubby's pals at the UN.

Williams reserves his best laugh line for the end: "These are not the best of times to be Arab, in either the U.S. or the U.N."

Yeah, haven't you noticed? Seems to me that what they need is better press relations -- and I know just the man for the job! Williams boasts on his website that he "helped draft the press-kit for the 2002 Arab Human Development Report for UNDP." I say give that man another UN contract, and all will be well.
