In my Award Winning book 'When Reality Hits'
I talked about the forming of the UN and my delight in it's purpose:
"Keeping peace between it's member Nations" AND the original UN rules "The UN may not interfere in the domestic affairs of any member country."
Over the years the UN has evolved and additions to the original UN organization were made and it's mission is no longer as Noble as it was at it's inception !
The United Nations has lost sight of its primary goals
By turning Member Nations against each other
The UN Security Council is

Slams Obama's Anti-Israel "Hit Job"
American lawmakers voted 342-80 on Thursday for a non-binding resolution that declares unwavering support for Israel and insists that the US reject any future actions at the UN that are similarly “one-sided and anti-Israel.”
The House action was taken in response to the Obama administration’s abstention in the passing of Resolution 2334 at the United Nations Security Council (UNSC) last month, which condemns Israeli “settlements” – i.e. Jewish communities in eastern Jerusalem, Judea and Samaria – as an obstacle to a peaceful resolution to the Israeli-Palestinian conflict.
using UN resources to aid Hamas
January 5, 2017
An employee of a UN Charity program in Gaza was convicted by an Israeli court of using his position to aid Hamas terrorists.
Waheed Borsh (Israel Security Agency)
He was sentenced to seven months in prison, and after having served most of his term already, will be released later this month.
Borsh, from Jabaliya in the Gaza Strip, had been working as an engineer for UNDP, one of the world’s largest multilateral development agencies, since 2003. His areas of responsibility included the demolition of houses damaged during armed conflict and clearing rubble from the sites.
The investigation revealed that he was instructed by a senior Hamas member to carry out his task in a way that would serve Hamas’ military interests.
In 2015, acting upon a request by Hamas, he persuaded UNDP managers to prioritize the rehabilitation of housing in areas populated by Hamas members.
During questioning, Borsh disclosed information regarding cases in which Hamas “blatantly and aggressively” exploited UNDP humanitarian activities for its own purposes, the Shin Bet (Israel’s Security Agency) stated in August after the case was publicized.
For example, when weapons or terrorist tunnel openings were discovered in houses under UNDP supervision, Hamas would take control of the site and confiscate arms and other materials.
“This violates clear UN procedures, according to which the United Nations Mine Action Service (UNMAS) is supposed to be immediately notified, as the UNMAS is the UN body in charge of dealing with explosive remnants of war,” the Shin Bet underscored.
Israeli Ambassador to the UN Danny Danon called on Secretary-General Ban Ki-moon to put an end to Hamas exploitation of UN humanitarian services.
“This is not an isolated case, but rather a troubling trend of the systematic exploitation by Hamas terrorists of UN organizations,” Danon charged. “If the UN truly wants to better the lives of the residents of Gaza, it must remove every employee working for the Hamas and sever all ties with organizations aiding terrorists. Only by implementing strict oversight mechanisms can the UN ensure that they are not exploited by the vicious terrorists whose only aim is to murder Jews and destroy the State of Israel.”
