The Witch Doctors Are More Proof of United Nations Failure
August 8, 2006
The Arab League is preparing for it’s day in the international sun. As the entire world watches, that seemingly august body will present a case, ostensibly in the best interests of Lebanon, in the attempt to influence a UN ceasefire resolution that might be more mindful of Lebanon’s ‘special needs.’
Sounds reasonable, right? Wrong.
The Arab League is neither NATO or the Moose Lodge.
Even the name, ‘Arab League,’ is deliberately misleading. In fact, that organization does not represent Arab interests at all- and never has. The Arab League has not sponsored a single educational, economic or real democratic reform and empowerment program in it’s entire existence. The Arab League is an organization dedicated to maintaining the status quo and preserving the leaders of some of the most repressive and dysfunctional regimes in the world. That is it’s entire raison d’etre.
Now, it is this body that wants to address the United Nations and the western world and be heard as the unified voice of the Arab world.
That is the equivalent of a bunch of witch doctors trading in their beads, bones and grass skirts and visions, to don western clothes, attend a convention of neuro-surgeons, and then they be considered equivalent medical professionals.
The Arab League has nothing offer the western, civilized world. That their efforts go into preseving and protecting that assembly of murderous, tyrannical and dysfunctional Arab world leaders is reason enough to disqualify anything they might have to say. As we have noted in Why War Works,
When nations that are that are led by or are under the influence of tyrants or dictators, attempt to justify those actions, we can rightly assume that justification is false. Tyrants and dictators do not make moral choices, because moral choices can only lead to the demise of the tyranny.
Clearly, anyone that comes to the defense of tyrannical regimes and their leaders, have themselves made a conscious choice to defend and stand by what is immoral. That is clearly applicable to the Arab League.
That the United Nations has agreed to give the Arab League equal standing is yet more unassailable evidence that the United Nations has been reduced to another League of Nations- a well meaning organization, rendered useless and ineffective. While it would be easy to say the UN has been reduced to a mass of benign irrelevance, that would not be accurate. Just as the League of Nations impotence in facing down Germany’s rearming in the 1930′s, the UN is now watching helplessly as Iran chases nuclear weapons and has overseen the mass genocide of millions over the last decade- and done nothing.
By providing a platform for the Arab League the UN has made it clear they are more than willing to providing a platform for any and all other racist and bigoted organizations.
The civilized world is measured by accomplishment and achievement. As we have noted many times, cultures, societies and religions are measured by what they build and not by what they destroy.
The Arab world has proved to be devoid of any meaningful achievements, save for hating Jews and America. In that endeavor, they excel. Manipulated by tyrannical and oppressive leaders, much of the Arab world has chosen to identify themselves by whom and how much they hate, rather than by anything they might accomplish.
The Arab League is complicit in maintaning that status quo in the Arab world. It is after all, a lot easier to hate than it is be productive- and that is just what the sponsors of the Arab League, dysfunctional and corrupt regime leaders, pay for.
When the cameras and lights at the United Nations are finally turned off, the Arab League representatives will shed their Saville Row suits and go back to their beads, bones and grass skirts. The ummah has been trained well- they need nothing more than a few witch doctors, invoking visions, magic and miracles, to keep them in line.
