I have always believed that the United Nations is an organization that provides a necessary legislative framework for international politics. Its successes may be few and far between and the laundry list of corruption and incompetence is very disturbing.

Take for example this week’s UN conference on racism. A similar summit held in 2001 quickly escalated into an anti-Semitic hatefest, prompting a number of delegates to walk out in protest. To right this wrong, the beautiful minds in the UN bureaucracy decide to take their mulligan in 2009. In a move that represents either gross incompetence or targeted malice, the racism conference began on what would have been Adolf Hitler’s 120th birthday and the keynote speaker on opening day was none other than the President of Iran; a nefarious lunatic who has called for the destruction of the Jewish State and has hosted an international symposium to prove that there was no Holocaust.

What, was Mel Gibson not available? I don’t blame the President of Iran for making his malicious statements; what did you expect? As the great philosopher and Sunnyvale Trailer Park Supervisor Jim Lahey once said “a shit leopard can’t change its spots”. Personally I blame the dunce who decided it would be a good idea to invite a zealous racist to be the keynote speaker on the opening day of a conference on racism! Ban Ki Moon, the Supreme Chancellor of the League of Nations , expressed shock and dismay that the President of Iran said what he said. Seriously? The fallacy of his naivety is astounding! That’s like having Mel Gibson write and direct Schindler’s List and then being surprised when he attempts to blame history on a Zionist conspiracy.

I applaud Barack Obama for boycotting the Conference. It would have been far more appropriate to invite the first black President of the United States to speak in lieu of a zealot. That would allow the international community to discuss the progress that has been made in the world’s most powerful nation and how that can serve as an inspirational example for countries where racism is still a serious problem. Instead they make a mockery of what should have been a hallowed institution by asking a Holocaust denier to make a speech about racism on Holocaust Day in Israel.

The United Nations is broken. Can someone please fix it?
