Another Great UN Idea
Rabbi Shea Hecht
About the Author

A top United Nations official has come up with another great UN idea. He devised a strategy to quiet the "demons" across the "wider Islamic world." He said that in order to end the Islamic violence that is taking place in the Middle East, the United States and the international community must respect Hezbollah as a political party, not a terrorist organization.

"Everybody would want a solution here which takes away the recruiting power of Hezbollah in the broader Arab world," said Mark Malloch Brown, the U.N.'s deputy secretary-general. That would be one, he said, that "allows Hezbollah a political future as opposed to a militia future inside an independent Lebanon."

Brown went so far as to say that if the Hezbollah and its adherents are given political acknowledgment then the need for military attacks on Israel would decline.

I haven’t heard anything so ludicrous since the last time someone from the UN opened their mouth. Making Hezbollah a political party would take away their recruiting power? The UN is living in a dream world. The terrorist, military wing of Hezbollah is not disappearing. Most people realize that Hezbollah is not fighting for honor nor are they fighting a border dispute, they are fighting to destroy Israel.Following a Hezbollah attack, its leader, Hassan Nasrallah said “If they (Jews) all gather in Israel, it will save us the trouble of going after them worldwide.” (Daily Star, Oct. 23, 2002). Additionally, Iran's supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei has renewed calls on Muslims to rally to the defense of the Lebanese Shiite militia Hezbollah in its war against Israel. One would have to be blind not to realize that these are the words of hateful, homicidal fanatics - not the words of men with a legitimate cause seeking a political forum.

Aside from this, has anyone seen Hamas lately? They too became a political party - a wildly popular one if one can go by the vote - have they changed their ideology? They have not changed their charter saying Israel should be destroyed, they have not changed their method to get their way - as can be seen by the Kassam rockets thrown at Sderot from the Gaza daily.

Do the brilliant thinkers at the UN think that making Hezbollah a political party will change their ideology? Do they think they will stop using civilians as shields for their operations? Southern Lebanese Christians are being used by Hezbollah terrorists as military shields for launching missile attacks. Yesterday former South Lebanese Army commander, Col. Charbel Barakat, said that Hezbollah is repeating the same pattern that it practiced against Israel in 1996, hiding among civilian populations and launching attacks behind human shields.

The Lebanese Christians are complaining bitterly that their families, their homes and their schools are being turned into a battle ground against their will. Christian Solidarity International (CSI), quotes a Christian, who remained nameless because he fears retribution by Hezbollah, from the village of Ain Ebel. This man discovered Hezbollah guerillas setting up a launcher to fire Katyusha rockets from the rooftop of his home. When he realized they were ignoring his pleas to stop firing the missiles, he immediately gathered his family and fled the home, which indeed was bombed and destroyed fifteen minutes later by an Israeli air strike.

In addition to having their homes hijacked for Hezbollah’s attacks, there have been attempts to block Christians from fleeing their villages. On Saturday, July 28, Hezbollah fighters wounded several Christians fleeing Rmeish with their families, according to Christian sources in south Lebanon. Will a political agenda stop this callous and cruel behavior? I doubt it.

Using Mr. Brown’s theory, perhaps the UN would like to try and stop bin Laden’s al-Qeada by offering him a country to rule. In fact, maybe the best idea is to combine those two! Let’s give Uganda - the same country offered to Israel in the 1940's - to Hezbollah and put Osama bin Laden up as president of its democracy - a democracy he will certainly set up as political power will change his ideology. If we give the Hezbollah terrorists a political party within this democracy they will doubtless turn over a new leaf and end fighting.

The ridiculousness of Mark Malloch Brown’s comment is almost surreal because it’s not based on fact. Sadly it echoes the view of most of the people who work in the UN. Sadder still is that the cause of all this violence was Hezbollah aggression. They entered Israel, a foreign country, and kidnaped and killed it soldiers. I don’t recall hearing anything from the UN about freeing those innocent victims, only ideas of what we can do for the terrorist group Hezbollah. But then again I can’t think of any bright idea that the UN has come up with in decades so this shouldn’t really shock anyone.
