To make it worse and more cringeing, we’re among the few who think this self-abasing fawning is worth donating to:
But while Mr Rudd has generously funded the slave trade memorial, there are real fears the idea will remain on the drawing board, with less than 25 per cent of the required funding so far being pledged by global powers.
And this excuse simply exposes how craven the whole exercise is:
Gary Quinlan, a former adviser to Mr Rudd, told the UN in December that Australia would provide about a further $70,000 after pledging $83,000 in 2010.
“We need to recognise the dark side of our own history and bring it into the light,” Australia’s Ambassador to the UN said.
For many years David Littman has been a tireless fighter for human rights at the United Nations. He consistently demands that the UN live up to what it claims to stand for, and insists that human rights organs apply the same standards to Muslim countries and the Third World as they do to the Western democracies.
Filip Dewinter, Bat Ye’or, and David Littman.
I first met Mr. Littman in October 2007, at theÂ Counterjihad Brussels conference. During his presentations at the sessions, the amount of material he had at is fingertips was astonishing. There was never enough time for him to cover all the relevant information â€” we had to be content with a general overview of the human rights farce at the UN. His talks revealed the extent to which the United Nations has been Islamized through the overwhelming influence of the OIC.
Many thanks toÂ Big Peace for publishing the letter, which is reproduced below:
If you doubted how evil the UN is — look no further. Co-opted lock, stock and barrel by the Mohammedans.
Morocco [Muslim] andÂ Mali [Muslim] introduced an amendment on behalf of African and Islamic nations that called for deleting the words “sexual orientation” and replacing them with “discriminatory reasons on any basis” in a resolution condemning unjustified executions.
Why weren’t honor killings referenced? More international Islamic law.
How is that leftist/Islamic alliance thing going for ya, LGBT crowd? No comment from ‘Queers for Palestine.’
A few days agoÂ I picked up this story from the JTA, claiming that an appeals court had removed the unindicted co-conspirator designation from CAIR and several other Hamas-linked groups. It turns out that the story was false.
A Call to Mobilize the Â Blogosphere in Support of Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff
We, the undersigned â€” consisting of four European blogs, one Canadian blog, and one American blog â€” have written this post jointly as a public call for our American colleagues to take up the cause of the Austrian feminist and anti-jihad activist Elisabeth Sabaditsch-Wolff.
Geert Wilders is well-known to most American conservative and libertarian bloggers, but Elisabeth’s case is not so prominent. Like Mr. Wilders, she faces trial for reporting factual information about Islam. Her “crime” was to conduct public seminars in which she described Islamic doctrine, quoted from the Koran, and explained to her listeners what she considers the dangers of Islam.
Iran President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad said he believes Osama Bin Laden is hiding in the US
Larry King does it again: Most of Mr Ahmadinejad’s contentions went unchallenged as King struggled to adjust to his unusually combative guest. When the chat show mainstay asked the president whether he was worried that Mr Netanyahu’s fear of Iran could prompt a pre-emptive strike, Mr Ahmadinejad launched into a rant. More
Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad doesn’t need nuclear weapons — his food stinks so bad, he’s practically cleared out the Hilton Manhattan East. The finicky fascist brought his own personal chef to prepare his meals while he’s in town for the UN General Assembly, a source told The Post’s Helen Freund. Unfortunately, his meals “make the whole hotel stink like hell,” said the source. The Hilton did not return a call for comment.Â Read The Full Article

High compliance costs and interference by Labor kill tourism in Australia
Australia has out priced itself as a holiday destination.
QUEENSLAND tourism operators are facing the fight of their lives to lure holidaymakers, who are increasingly shunning domestic beach holidays in favour of cheap deals to places such as Bali, Fiji and Thailand. (News com)
The United Nations believes that the Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC) has a “human right” to impose censorship on the media to “promote (Muslim) religious tolerance.” UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon will even hand over funds for the OIC to ensure that strict censorship on the media will be enforced when reporters shed a negative light on radical Islamic militants that include, Osama bin-Laden, al-Qaeda, the Taliban, al-Shabaab (Somalia) and Abu Shayaff (the Philippines).
According to Fox News, “concerns about censorship were raised after the 56-nation Organization of the Islamic Conference (OIC), which has tremendous sway in the United Nations, successfully pushed through a resolution that creates a watchdog to monitor how religion is portrayed in the media.”
The OIC claims it will enforce religious tolerance by ensuring that the (Muslim) religion is not mocked. An incident occurred when Danish cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed instigated Islamic riots. Yet, the United States and the European Union members on the council voted against the resolution, worrying that it will censor the press and assault freedom of expression.
As reported by Fox, “the resolution now opens the way for the Human Rights Council to select a special investigation on religious freedom to “work closely with mass media organizations to ensure that they create and promote an atmosphere of respect and tolerance for religious and cultural diversity.”
The UN loves to use irony whe implementing new policies. Mr. Ban appointed a so-called “Human Rights Council,” to be the media watchdog to impose censorship. Meanwhile, the UN hires and appoints investigators to seek and punish whistle-blowers and aid in cover-ups of corruption by initiating “sham” investigation inquiries. The UN also hosts “Transparency Summits,” even though Mr. Ban is notorious for hiding internal UN documents from public scrutiny.

In response to a radio transmission by the Israeli Navy warning the Gaza flotilla that they are approaching a naval blockade, passengers of the Mavi Marmara respond, “Shut up,Â go back to Auschwitz” and “We’re helping Arabs go against the US, don’t forget 9/11”.
Such amusing conversationalists.
These are not “humanitarian” “peace” “activists”. These are, in any objective sense, aparty toÂ the conflict. They’re not trying to bring “peace”, they’re trying to help their side win. That’s their choice, and may the best man win, but the media collusion in presenting them as “humanitarian” “aid” workers is Orwellian – and all the more so in a world in which the Turkish Prime Minister accuses Israel of killingÂ children on the beachÂ and in which the doyenne of the White House press corps no longer recognizes Israel’s “right to exist”.

You’d think they’d be happy that the Israelis took out a Hamas jihadist. But no, it’s all about the passports. “Australia moves to expel Israeli diplomat,” by Rod Mcguirk forAssociated Press, May 23 (thanks to Jihad Watch):
On our MTR show today, I talk with Steve Price about the ludicrous and self-serving decision by Kevin Rudd to expell an Israeli diplomat. We talk about this with Deputy Opposition Leader Julie Bishop, too, who refuses then to confirm or deny that the Liberals, if elected, would also extract more taxes from the mining industry.
KRudd tries to buy himself a cushy position among other empty suits at the UN Â Â (with your money, of course!)
Our aid for Rudd’s vanity
When he’s not expelling Israeli diplomats to appease Muslim countries, he’s offering aid bribes to African ones who may likewise back Kevin Rudd’s desperate campaign for a temporary seat on the UN Security Council:
AUSTRALIA will pump more than $400 million in foreign aid into Africa by 2015, as Prime Minister Kevin Rudd chases a seat on the United Nations Security Council.
Only in an Obama world could the country that stones, hangs, rapes to death, and shrouds their women be named to the Commission on Women’s Rights.
That collective negation of humanity, the OIC-driven United Nations, continues to shock decent people with their savagery and barbarism. This cesspool of hate, subjugation, oppression, and corruption dictates to the world with the tacit approval of the infiltrator in the White House.
No decent American should sanction our membership in this slaughterhouse. As the leader of the free world (despite Obama’s dismantling), we should pick up our marbles, zip up our wallets and go home. But we have no virtue, no goodness. To distinguish between good and evil is an affront to the wicked. And it is the wicked we have chosen to serve.
The evil of the world is made possible by nothing but the sanction you give it. -Â Atlas Shrugged, Ayn Rand.
