John Bolton shames the UN

John Bolton shows once again that he was exactly the right choice for UN ambassador..though how any man of principle can stomache hanging around these people is a mystery to me.

The U.N. Security Council refused to issue a statement condemning the suicide bombing in Netanya, Israel. The holdout was, of course, Algeria, the only Arab council member.Reuters AlertNet - US and Algeria at loggerheads on Netanya bombing

The statement called for condemnation of the bombing and would have urged Syria to close the offices of Islamic Jihad, which claimed responsibility.

This, of course, is in the midst of a platterful of General Assembly resolutions condemning Israel for defending itself...which are something of an annual tradition in the UN.

Bolton said Algeria would not approve the statement "and we are simply not going to accept the watering down of Security Council press statements....

"There's no question question here who conducted the attack or where the orders came from," Bolton said. "There's nothing left to negotiate."

Good for him. I hope every `liberal' who claims to support Israel remembers how Bolton was demonized by the likes of Ted Kennedy, Barbara Boxer, Dianne Feinstein, Harry Reid and the rest of the gang come election time. Bolton, for those who don't know, was instrumental in helping to revoke the UN's infamous `zionism is racism' resolution.
