Israeli Judge to Advise UN on Terrorism
For those of you who still believe the United Nations is a force for good in the world, let us enlighten you on recent events. Dr David Scharia has been appointed as the senior legal advisor and criminal justice coordinator for the UN Security Council’s main “anti-terror body” known as the CTED (Counter Terrorism Executive Directorate).
Now let’s think about this; a judge from a nation that commits many terrorist attacks on civilians and get away with it repeatedly, has been appointed to advise and coordinate on countering terrorism. Spot the logical problem! The irony is just too painful and horrible to think about. Being in such a high position, we are sure Dr Scharia will do all he can to continue to dodge anything that may bring up Israel as the terrorist state that it is. Sadly, this is further proof that the UN has never been neutral since its inception and that it is run by a handful of powers that support a strong Israeli lobby, such as the USA.
We must not forget the many atrocities the UN has allowed and continues to allow and to let nations go unpunished for their crimes. They permitted the world to be silent when the Rwandan and Congolese holocaust occurred barely twenty years ago. Due to the USA having veto power in the UN, they allowed oppression of non-whites in South Africa during the apartheid regime under the guise of “constructive engagement.” The UK’s very own Margaret Thatcher called Nelson Mandela’s African National Congress “terrorists” for merely speaking out against oppression. There was the Gaza offensive in December 2008 led by Israel and massacres in Syria and Burma are happening with the world not even turning their heads.
It is clear that the international community is not in favour of helping the oppressed otherwise the UN would have done something about it and in particular, not allow a Zionist to be heading the CTED. The question is, what are Muslims going to do about it? What are we going to do to ensure that our oppression ceases? We know we cannot rely on the international community. Will we join hands regardless of our views on fiqh and intricate matters of aqeedah in order to help save us from being persecuted around the world? Will we learn from the mistakes of our predecessors or will we become even worse than they were? The choice is ours and we have to make the right one. As an Ummah, we are a total failure because our community leaders and political leaders have not served our needs but their own.
