What Is The UN Good For?

Honestly. Get this.
There is evidence that students educated in UNRWA schools are much more likely to become homicide bombers.
The United Nations Relief & Works Agency is the joint that runs that school bombed in Gaza.
Lawmakers on Capitol Hill say they are also concerned that terrorist propaganda is being taught in UNRWA schools. A notebook captured by Israeli officials at the UNRWA school in the Kalandia refugee camp several years ago glorified homicide bombers and other terrorists. Called "The Star Team," it profiled so-called "martyrs," Palestinians who had died either in homicide bombings or during armed struggle with Israel. On the book's back cover was printed the UNRWA emblem, as well as a photo of a masked gunman taking aim while on one knee. Though he cautioned that estimates are tricky because the identity of an attacker is not always made public, Halevi estimated that over 60 percent of homicide bombers were educated in UNRWA schools.
It will be objected that the IDF is the source of these reports, to which I respond that U.S. Congressmen have looked into it independently and I have no reason to doubt their veracity.

Honestly, can anyone name even one good thing the UN does? It gives a PR platform to anti-Semitic and uncivilized regimes; it provides Communists veto power over anything free nations wish to do to intervene in human rights abuses; it pours the money of free nations into China's coercive one-child policy; it sends rapists to the world's trouble spots to "make peace", by which is meant "do nothing" or take sides with the villains; it sets up ungovernable bureaucracies to enrich the sad-sack relatives of the world's diplomatic corps at the expense of the world's most vulnerable and least free; it imposes liberal abortion regimes on nations crying instead for penicillin and calls this support for women's rights. How long must we pretend the UN, whatever function it may once have served, is not now corrupt beyond the possibility of reform? When the people of the world need help, they rely on the US, Australia & Great Britain for independent aid.

Update: Now they'll never get a nuke.
To chair the 2009 governing board of the U.N.'s flagship agency, the multibillion-dollar globe-girdling United Nations Development Program, dedicated to promoting good governance and ending poverty, the U.N. has now picked--wait for it--the Islamic Republic of Iran.
the UNDP is a vast bureaucracy, blanketed in diplomatic immunity, bankrolled both by U.N. member-state contributions and hundreds of opaque public and private trust funds (the U.S., which gives well over $200 million per year, is among the UNDP's top donors). Boasting a presence in 166 countries, the UNDP moves money, personnel and equipment across borders around the globe with minimal independent oversight. It does not bode well to have this kind of outfit chaired by Iran, with its record of running networks for terror and sanctions-busting nuclear procurement.
Well done, UN. Way to uphold international sanctions on this rogue state.
