These remarks, made yesterday, underscore a biblical principle that may play itself out very soon ("I will bless those that bless Israel"). If America joins the rest of the haters diplomatically, then the jig is up for us. I fear that the only thread preventing America's plummet into the raging antimsemitic chasm--and ultimately our demise-- is about to be cut.
NEW YORK - The President of the UN General Assembly has launched an unprecedented attack on a UN member state from the Assembly podium. Going beyond even existing UN resolutions, Miguel d'Escoto Brockmann of Nicaragua accused Israel of apartheid and called for "a campaign of boycott, divestment and sanctions" against it. Reminiscent of a classic antisemitic slur, Brockmann (himself a Roman Catholic priest and one-time official of the World Council of Churches) also claimed our Palestinian "brothers and sisters are being crucified" by Israel.
