Krauthammer Declares U.N. ‘A Disaster’ Obsessed With Israel
The United Nations ’ most recent effort to condemn Israel has resulted in an increasing outcry from American conservatives who say the organization once created to prevent war has lost its way.
During an impassioned denunciation of the U.N. on Monday, conservative Charles Krauthammer offered the most innovative use for the prime New York City real estate now occupied by the U.N.
“I think that’s good real estate in downtown New York City,” he said. “And Trump ought to find a way to put his name on it and turn it into condos.”
In a more serious vein, Krauthammer noted that American taxpayers pay about 25 percent of the costs of operating the U.N. only to have it constantly working against the United State’s only Middle East ally.
“So we’re paying an organization that spends half its time — more than half its time and energy and resources and bureaucracy trying to attack the only Jewish state on the planet, a tiny little spec, while genocide mayhem, murder, terrorism is going on all over the world,” he said.
Krauthammer said the focus on and hostility towards Israel is out of proportion to the needs of the globe.
“It’s an obsession that to an outside a observer appears to be insane. Why are we doing this? And the rest of the time is spent undermining the United States and democracy and our allies around the world,” Krauthammer said.
The U.N. was formed in the wake of World War II to avoid wars by giving nations a place where differences could be discussed and resolved without violence.
“It was born in hope, the end of the second World War. It turned out to be a disaster,” Krauthammer said.

“It is an organization that exacerbates tensions, it does not assuage them,” he added.
He also said the attention the world body receives is out of proportion to its true importance.
“… imagine if headquarters were in Zimbabwe,” he said. “The amount of weight and coverage it would get would be zero.”
