Jimmy Carter may be asked to lead UN investigation – of Israel

Is there a brain left in anyone’s head at the UN? Via the NY Sun:

UNITED NATIONS — As Palestinian Arab rockets struck two Israeli towns yesterday, U.N. bodies prepared to launch no fewer than two overlapping “fact-finding” missions to second-guess Israel’s anti-terrorist tactics. President Carter could head one of those missions.

The U.N. General Assembly is expected to convene a special emergency session tomorrow to deal with the November 8 Israel Defense Force artillery strike on the northern Gaza town of Beit Hanoun, which killed 19 civilians. A draft resolution for the assembly session calls on the U.N. secretary-general to establish a fact-finding mission into the event and requests that he report back to the assembly in a month.

And yesterday in Geneva, the U.N. Human Rights Council, which in its five months of existence has failed to pass one resolution on any country other than Israel, concluded its third emergency session on the Jewish state. In the session’s resolution, the council called on its president, Ambassador Alfonso de Alba of Mexico, to establish a fact-finding mission to investigate the incident at Beit Hanoun.

A diplomat in Geneva who requested anonymity said the sponsors of the resolution are planning to ask Mr. Carter to head the investigation. Other candidates include the diplomats Martti Ahtisaari of Finland and Sadako Ogata of Japan.

Let’s take a look at Carter feels about Israel – and Israel’s enemies:

Do the clowns at the UN have any clue how Carter views Israel and Israel’s enemies? That’s a rhetorical question, of course, because I’m sure they know exactly where Carter stands on the issue of Israel – that’s probably why they’re considering asking him to head up this “investigation” in the first place. Remember last November’s UN “International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People” and how at a public gathering of UN officials and Palestinian “diplomats” that a map of the Middle East was displayed – without Israel on it? In case anyone was wondering, that’s how the UN feels about Israel.

Oh – and guess what? This year’s “International Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People” is coming up on November 29th. I bet Carter can hardly wait!
