I will restate the obvious, October 7th should end the United Nations.
Just as the League of Nations was liquidated because of the advent of World War I and it had clearly failed in its primary purpose, the United Nations must too be abolished because it has become the very thing it was established to oppose – another Holocaust. Instead it is an arm of the global jihad and it is aiding and abetting in Jewish genocide. It has failed in its primary purpose and should be dismantled.
The League of Nations was established at the end of World War I as an international peacekeeping organization just as the United Nations was founded over seventy years ago in the wake of the Holocaust to ensure “never again.” Democracies, both nascent and well-established, comprised the majority of the founding nations of the UN. America was confident that the UN would be an organization which would work in tandem with American national interests in promoting the welfare of humankind and the basic rights of every human spirit.
UNRWA fires 12 staffers who allegedly took part in October 7 Hamas terrorist attacks on Israel, US cuts funding

The United Nations organization for Palestinian refugees has fired a dozen staffers over claims they took part in the Oct. 7 Hamas terror attacks on Israel, the agency said Friday.
Israeli authorities handed over the information alleging that 12 United Nations Relief and Works Agency (UNRWA) employees were involved in the murderous rampage in southern Israel, said the agency’s commissioner-general, Philippe Lazzarini.
“To protect the agency’s ability to deliver humanitarian assistance, I have taken the decision to immediately terminate the contracts of these staff members and launch an investigation in order to establish the truth without delay.”
The US immediately cut funding to the agency in the wake of the allegations surfacing, the State Department said — marking a significant reversal from the Biden administration’s strong support for UNRWA.

“The United States is extremely troubled by the allegations that 12 UNRWA employees may have been involved in the October 7 Hamas terrorist attack on Israel,” the department’s statement said.
“Secretary of State Antony J. Blinken spoke with United Nations Secretary-General Antonio Guterres on January 25 to emphasize the necessity of a thorough and swift investigation of this matter.”
Soon after taking office, the Biden administration resumed the funding to the agency that had been abruptly cut off in 2018 during Donald Trump’s presidency.
Since then, the US has funneled more than $730 million to the organization for refugee assistance in the West Bank and Gaza Strip.
The fresh allegations sparked prompt calls among Republicans — including Rep. Elise Stefanik (R-NY) — for the US to permanently defund the UNRWA.
Displaced Palestinians take a break next to a wrecakge of a car while on the move after the Israeli army asked residents of Khan Yunis camp to leave their homes and go to Rafah camps near the Egyptian border, south of the Gaza Strip, 26 January 2024. At least 26,000 Palestinians and at least 1,330 Israelis have been killed, according to the Palestinian Health Ministry and the Israel Defense Forces (IDF), since Hamas militants launched an attack against Israel from the Gaza Strip on 07 October 2023, and the Israeli operations in Gaza and the West Bank which followed it. Since 07 October 2023, up to 1.9 million people, or more than 85 percent of the population, have been displaced throughout the Gaza Strip, some more than once, according to the United Nations Relief and Works Agency for Palestine Refugees in the Near East (UNRWA), which added that most civilians in Gaza are in ‘desperate need of humanitarian assistance and protection’. 5
“For the last three years Joe Biden’s decision to send US taxpayer dollars to Gaza with no oversight and no accountability has allowed for the proliferation of abhorrent and antisemitic educational materials to be used across Gaza and filled the coffers of Hamas,” Stefanik said in a statement.
“The Biden Administration’s limited suspension of funds to UNRWA to cover up for their disastrous mistake is unacceptable. Joe Biden must permanently cut off all funding to this antisemitic and violent organization.”
Rep. Chris Smith (R-NJ) added that the move to suspend funding was “long overdue” but a “feeble response to the massive and irrefutable evidence of UNRWA’s extensive and long-term connivance, complicity, and even cooperation in Hamas’s terror campaign.”
“What we need is a comprehensive, fact-based approach to UNRWA that stops all funding and conditions future funding on a complete head-to-toe reform and restructuring of UNRWA,” Smith added.
Sen. Tom Cotton (R-Ark.) and Sen. Tim Scott (R-SC) agreed, both issuing statements saying the agency should “never receive” another dime from the US.
