We here at the Conservative Tribune have made our contempt and disdain for the United Nations quite clear, as we view the international body as little more than a collection of tyrants and petty dictators bent on pursuing an anti-American agenda in almost everything they do.
Most infuriatingly, a significant chunk of their work against the interests of America is in fact funded by American taxpayers.
That could change in the near future, though, at least if Republican Texas Rep. Louie Gohmert has anything to say about it, according to Fox News.
During a recent appearance on “Hannity,” Gohmert informed guest host Kimberly Guilfoyle that he was currently in the process of writing up a bill to be introduced in the House that would essentially cut off all U.S. funding to the U.N. if it refused to rescind its most recent anti-Israel resolution.
The bill would also include language that would allow for U.S. funds to be cut off from any foreign government that took the step of recognizing a Palestinian state.
Gohmert made clear that he would have no problem withholding funds from the U.N. if it refused to relent on the resolution, saying, “Fine. They don’t need our help to be anti-Semitic.”
RedState noted that Gohmert had correctly pointed out that Israel was the only Middle Eastern nation in which Muslims enjoyed broad freedoms, as Israel was the only true “liberal democracy” in the region.
Furthermore, despite claims to the contrary from both the U.N. and the Obama administration, Arabs and Muslims are welcomed inside Israel — about 21 percent of Israel citizens are Arab, most of them Muslim — and in fact enjoy representation in the Israeli government.
Meanwhile, the effort to defund the U.N. is not resting solely on Gohmert’s upcoming bill, as Republican Texas Sen. Ted Cruz has also begun working on a similar bill in the Senate, according to The Washington Free Beacon.
“The disgraceful anti-Israel resolution passed by the UNSC was apparently only the opening salvo in the Obama administration’s final assault on Israel,” said Cruz. “President Obama, Secretary Kerry, Ambassador Power and their colleagues should remember that the United States Congress reconvenes on Jan. 3, and under the Constitution we control the taxpayer funds they would use for their anti-Israel initiatives.”
It should come as no surprise that we fully support both efforts to defund the United Nations, and we urge you, our readers, to contact your particular Congress critter via phone, email or snail-mail, respectfully of course, to urge them to support these efforts as well.
If the U.N. wants to persist in pursuing an agenda that runs counter to the interests of America and our closest allies, then they should be willing to do so without the financial backing of the American taxpayers.
