The UN is trying to destroy Israel - so what else is new?

Israelis don't care much about the UN ("oom-shmoom") and are under the comfortable, but dangerous, delusion that it is powerless (see Can the UN be ignored? ). Zionists abroad often despair of it entirely and want to eliminate it. Bradley Burston points out that the UN is being used to eliminate Israel. But in reality, the "plot" that Bradley B. relates is just another episode in the subversion of the UN as an instrumnet for destroying the Jewish state. Consider that a WHOLE DIVISION of the Secretariat is devoted to "The_Question_of_Palestine" - huge resources are allocated each year to demonization and delegitimization of Israel, and for recruiting NGOs around the world to the hate Israel campaign.
The Right of Return, advocated by the UN Committee on Elimination of Racial Discrimination is of course part of the "inalienable rights" of the Palestinian people, which have been pressed for many years by the  Committee on the Exercise of the Inalienable Rights of the Palestinian People (CEIRPP), which was created in 1975.
Let's do something about it! 

The Plot: Use the UN to rid the world of Israel
By Bradley Burston
Imagine, for a moment, that several constituent members of the United Nations had an interest in the eventual elimination of the state of Israel.
Just to indulge the fantasy one step forward, imagine that - having failed through war to push Israel off the map, having failed through persistence to wait until despondent Israelis simply picked up and left the land to the Palestinians - they conceived a scheme to leverage their move. With the United Nations.
They would use the UN to undo for them what, in their view, the UN once did to them. The UN, the reasoning holds, made this mess in 1947, by passing General Assembly Resolution 181, the Partition Plan for Palestine that created a Jewish state. Now the UN can help clean up the mess. And the map.
The ultimate goal, would be to have an official body with a name as irreproachable as the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination endorse the Palestinian demand for the right of Palestinians and their heirs to return to properties and lands they claim within Israel.
Far-fetched? Of course it is. But if somehow it were true, it might unfold like this:
First, establish a UN Commission on Human Rights.
Stack the membership of the commission with officials of some of the most reprehensible regimes on the planet, beginning with Sudan, the site of what the UN has determined is currently the worst humanitarian crisis anywhere.
This will ensure that the committee, which will turn a blind eye to all human rights violations in places like Myanmar, China, Cuba, Russia, Nepal, North Korea, Congo, Gabon, Guatemala, Libya, Zimbabwe, Pakistan, Azerbaijan, Saudi Arabia, and, especially Darfur, will be free to focus its work solely on Israel.
If you go too far, and the commission has become an obvious embarrassment even to the United Nations, to the point that even the General Assembly votes 170 to 4 to replace the panel with a more even-handed successor, change its name, to the Human Rights Council.
Make sure that the Organization of the Islamic Conference and a coalition of African despotisms keep the Darfur genocide off the agenda.
Make sure that the new Council specifically condemns only one country - Israel.
Make sure that it does so repeatedly - eight times over the past year. Pass a rule which states that a permanent feature of every council session will be a review of charges of human rights abuses by Israel.
Propose a rule change, which would fire many of the council's rapporteurs, experts who document human rights abuses - but which would specifically exempt from firing, those who monitor the Palestinian territories.
In its current session, beginning on Monday in Geneva, see to it that the heart of the deliberations will be a report commissioned by the panel that compares Israeli actions in the territories to apartheid in South Africa.
Finally, bring the Right of Return issue - phrased to suit foreign consumption, before the UN Committee on the Elimination of Racial Discrimination of the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights.
Now we're getting somewhere. Now Israel can be attacked and delegitimized on the one issue on which leftist and rightist Jews in Israel agree. Now Israeli military policy is irrelevant. Now the issue of occupation is irrelevant. Now even day-to-day issues of discrimination against Arabs are irrelevant.
Now Israel can be attacked for its very essence.
Now Israel can be attacked by people thousands of miles away, who, turning their backs on their own histories of colonization, maltreatment and annihilation of indigenous populations, xenophobia, and immigration curbs against unwanted peoples on the basis of color, creed, illiteracy and poverty, will be happy to preach regarding the way the Holy Land's problems should be solved.
What's one less Jewish state in the world, after all?
