Martin Peretz Joins Me in Warning About Putting Israel Through Kerry's "Global Test"

A President Kerry would be a disaster for Israel:

"It's the ramifications of his foreign policy in general, especially his fixation on the United Nations as the arbiter of international legitimacy, proctor of that 'global test.'

Save for the U.S. veto in the Security Council, Israel loses every struggle at the U.N. against lopsided majorities. In the General Assembly and the Human Rights Commission, Muslim states trade their votes to protect aggressors and tyrannies from censure in exchange for libels against the Jewish state. The body's bloated and dishonest bureaucracies are no better, as evidenced most recently by the head of the U.N. Palestine refugee organization, who defended having Hamas militants on his staff. "

You are to be commended for joining with Peretz in pointing out the dangers of the United Nations. Rather than seeking a coalition of enemies - which Kerry calls allies - Bush proceeded in Iraq without them. It's time the entire world recognizes the threat to western civilization that the UN poses.

Thanks. Actually, he joined me. I wrote about it nine days ago and it appeared in my column on Oct. 16.
