Let's review, shall we?

The UN Security Council refused to condemn the unprovoked terror attack in which Palestinian terrorists murdered seven Israelis and wounded scores more... because one of the council members - Lebanon - wouldn't go along with the motion unless Israel was also condemned for killing the man who planned the attack.

Over the weekend so far, more than 90 missiles have been fired into Israel from Gaza, wounding dozens (several critically) and killing one.

Yet not a peep from the UN.

but now that Israel warplanes are bombing strictly military targets in Gaza, the Palestinian Authority has instructed its representative to the UN to push for a statement condemning Israel for its aggression.

Something tells me that one won't have a problem getting passed.

Israel out of UN. UN - out of Israel!

Sadly, you're likely to be right.

The inmates are running the asylum.

I agree. I think it's time for western nations pull out of the U.N. Sadly, there's nothing more to be gained from being involved with it.

And, by way of contrast, the UN regards Syria's recent penchant for slaughtering and torturing thousands of its own citizens as "possibly" qualifying as war crimes, but won't bother condemning Syria, seeing as said condemnation would never pass the Security Council. Check it out:

Makes you wonder why we even bother anymore.

"the inmates are running the asylum." is too benign. It puts me more in mind of Orwell's Animal Farm.
