Calls upon Israel, the occupying Power, to comply with the relevant resolutions on the occupied Syrian Golan, in particular Security Council resolution 497 (1981), in which the Council, inter alia, decided that the Israeli decision to impose its laws, jurisdiction and administration on the occupied Syrian Golan was null and void and without international legal effect and demanded that Israel, the occupying Power, rescind forthwith its decision
UN Resolution A/C.4/67/L.18, adopted December 18, 2012
Elliott Abrams notes that The UN Closes Out 2012: Nine Resolutions Against Israel, Silence About Syrian Attacks on Palestinians.
That's right, what used to be the world address for humanitarian concerns has decided that after 22 months of the Syrian massacre by the Assad regime, with cluster bombs now being used and the fear of chemical weapons being used next -- now would be a swell time for Israel to "forthwith" hand over more Syrians over for Assad to kill.
Needless to say, those Syrians themselves think the UN is out of its mind.
Thus Evelyn Gordon writes in UN: Return Golan Residents to Syrian Slaughterhouse “Forthwith”:
Given what’s happening across the border in Syria, where the ongoing civil war has killed over 44,000 people and created over 500,000 refugees, I suspect most of the 20,000 Syrian Druze on the Golan are thanking their lucky stars to be living safely under Israel’s “occupation.” But you needn’t take my word for it: According to the Hebrew daily Maariv, whose report was subsequently picked up the Winnipeg Jewish Review, Israeli government statistics show that the number of Golan Druze applying for Israeli citizenship (for which the annexation made them eligible) has risen by hundreds of percent since the Syrian civil war erupted, after 30 years in which very few did so.But the single-minded determination of the UN -- led by the Arabs themselves -- to see Israel attacked in the halls of that once-respected body is the single motivation behind the vast majority of the decisions made in the UN.
“More and more people comprehend that this [Israel] is a well-managed country and it’s possible to live and raise children here,” one Druze who acquired Israeli citizenship explained. “In Syria there is mass murder, and if [the Druze are] under Syrian control they would likely be turned into the victims of these atrocities. People see murdered children and refugees fleeing to Jordan and Turkey, lacking everything, and ask themselves: Where do I want to raise my children. The answer is clear–in Israel and not Syria.”
The consequences of the one-sided -- and as in this case, outright stupid -- resolutions are secondary to the racism that permeates the Muslim-dominated UN.
Just another day in the anti-Israel UN.
