The UN has been getting spanked lately by forceful American women who are calling them out on their lack of action and passive responses to terrorism in the Middle-East.
In February, former Republican governor of South Carolina, Nikki Haley – who now serves as US Ambassador to the UN – ripped the UN Security Council for its “breathtaking anti-Israel bias. She also called the organization out for failing to address some of the region’s most pressing issues — namely, Hezbollah’s illegal buildup of rockets in Lebanon, the money and weapons the Iran regime is supplying to its terrorist entities throughout Latin America and the Middle East, and ways to defeat the Islamic State.”
On Thursday, Lebanese-born human rights lawyer Amal Clooney – wife of actor George Clooney – took the UN to task for allowing the Islamic State to continue unhindered in committing genocide.
The ultra-liberal Clooney stated that what she found “shocking” is not just the group’s brutality but the “passive” response by the world’s nations to the campaign to investigate its crimes and bring the perpetrators to justice.
According to Yahoo, Clooney “urged Iraq’s Prime Minister Haider al-Abadi to send a letter to the U.N. Security Council so it can vote to set up an investigation into crimes by the group in Iraq where IS once controlled about 40 percent of the country’s territory but is now being routed by government and coalition forces.”
“Killing ISIS on the battlefield is not enough. We must kill the idea behind ISIS by exposing the brutality and bringing individual criminals to justice,” she said.
Clooney made a plea to all countries “to stand up for justice” and demonstrate “moral leadership” to make sure that ISIS is held accountable.
Kudos to her for staying up against radical Islamic terror – a phrase which many liberals won’t even utter.
