Honestly, what purpose does the UN serve anymore?

When it's not ignoring genocides or naming such bastions of decency as Libya, Syria and Sudan to the Human Rights Commission (incidentally while voting out the United States) it seems the favorite pastime of the UN is Israel bashing.

If they're not passing non-binding resolution condemning Israel (thank goodness the US and usually Canada are there to prevent these from becoming actual resolutions) they're holding "Solidarity with the People of Palestine" days. What's even more telling is the fact that on the maps of the Palestine they happen to be using, Israel doesn't exist.

It always amazes me how the only true democracy in the Middle East can somehow be the target of so much open contempt while all the surrounding countries (not to mention all the communist countries other places in the world) routinely restrict the rights of their citizens far worst than anything Israel's ever done, with nary a word from the General Assembly. Oh and did I mention the suicide bombers that the Israelis have to deal with on a daily basis or the fact that almost every neighboring country has openly declared their intention to wipe Israel off the map at the earliest possible time.

It's time the worlds representational governments pull out of the UN and start their own international organization. Dictators need not apply.
