American Minute with Bill Federer United Nations -'high-sounding words of tyrants...in bleak contradiction to their deeds.' -Reagan quoting Eleanor Roosevelt
Franklin Roosevelt coined the name 'United Nations'
for the allied countries fighting together against the National
Socialist Workers Party (Nazi) and their totalitarian axis powers.
Speaking on Justice for War Crimes, March 24, 1944, Roosevelt explained the original goal of the United Nations involved protecting the Jews:
one of the blackest crimes of all history - begun by the Nazis...the
wholesale systematic murder of the Jews of Europe goes on unabated...
Hundreds of thousands of Jews...are now threatened with annihilation as Hitler's forces descend...
The United Nations have made it clear that they will pursue the guilty...
All who knowingly take part in the deportation of Jews to their death...are equally guilty with the executioner...
The United Nations are fighting to make a world in which tyranny and aggression cannot exist."
On November 11, 1942, President Franklin Roosevelt complimented the Jewish Theological Seminary of America:
"If the world to emerge from the war after a victory of the United Nations
is to be a world of enduring peace and of freedom, that peace and that
freedom must be founded on renewed loyalty to the spiritual values...
of mankind who are arrayed in battle against us realized this, and
therefore began their effort to subdue the world with an assault on
religious institutions...which...taught...the dignity and worth of human
In cooperation with Catholic, Jewish, and Protestant scholars...it will in time, I trust, become an increasingly powerful instrument for enlightening men of all faiths."
The United Nations Charter was signed JUNE 26, 1945, by 51 member nations.
The United Nations began with high hopes, as President Harry S Truman stated, March 6, 1946:
have just come though a decade in which the forces of evil in various
parts of the world have been lined up in a bitter fight to banish from
the face of the earth both these ideals - religion and democracy....
founded on one basic principle, the worth and dignity of the individual man and woman.
founded on the doctrine that...men and women and children were put on
earth solely for the purpose of serving the State..."
"The Protestant Church, the Catholic Church, and the Jewish Synagogue
- bound together in the American unity of brotherhood - must provide
the shock forces to accomplish this moral and spiritual awakening...
Unless it is done, we are headed for the disaster we would deserve...
We have tried to write into the Charter of the United Nations the essence of religion."
One of the first acts of the United Nations was to recognize Israel as a nation on May 15, 1948.
In 1953, President Eisenhower addressed the United Nations:
"The whole book of history reveals mankind's never-ending quest for peace and mankind's God-given capacity to build."
The President of the United Nations' General Assembly, 13th Session, was Charles Habib Malik, who helped write the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Charles Habib Malik stated in 1958:
"The good (in the United States) would never have come into being without the blessing and power of Jesus Christ...
tries to conceive the American word without taking full account of the
suffering and love and salvation of Christ is only dreaming.
know how embarrassing this matter is to politicians, bureaucrats,
businessmen and cynics; but, whatever these honored men think, the
irrefutable truth is that the soul of America is at its best and
Eisenhower's delegate to the United Nations was Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., who sent a letter to every member state, December 30, 1955:
"I propose that God should be openly and audibly invoked at the United Nations...
I do so in the conviction that we cannot make the United Nations into a successful instrument of God's peace without God's help - and that with His help we cannot fail.
To this end I propose that we ask for that help."
The United Nations did not act on Lodge's proposal to open with prayer.
In subsequent years, the mission of the United Nations has become unclear.
Former President Herbert Clark Hoover told the American Newspaper Publishers Association, April 27, 1950:
"I suggest that the United Nations should be reorganized without the Communist nations in it.
that is impractical, then a definite New United Front should be
organized of those peoples who disavow communism, who stand for morals
and religion, and who love freedom..."
the world needs today is a definite, spiritual mobilization of the
nations who believe in God against this tide of Red agnosticism.
It needs a moral mobilization against the hideous ideas of the police state and human slavery...
It is a proposal to redeem the concept of the United Nations to the high purpose for which it was created...
It is a proposal for moral and spiritual cooperation of God-fearing free nations...in rejecting an atheistic other world."
On June 10, 1963, President Dwight Eisenhower confided to the National Junior Chamber of Commerce:
"The United Nations has seemed to be two distinct things to the two worlds divided by the iron curtain...
To the free world it has seemed that it should be a constructive forum...
the Communist world it has been a convenient sounding board for their
propaganda, a weapon to be exploited in spreading disunity and
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations' General Assembly, December 10, 1948.
Making no reference to rights being endowed by a Creator, the U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights recognized by consent basic human rights, such as:
-Freedom of opinion and expression; -Freedom to change religions; -Right to education; -No slavery; -No forced marriages; -No torture; and -No inhumane punishment.
The U.N.'s Universal Declaration of Human Rights was rejected by the leaders of 57 Islamic countries, who formed their own group called the OIC - Organization of Islamic Cooperation.
In 1990, the OIC passed their 'Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam'
affirming Shariah law as supreme, with the death penalty for those
leaving Islam, punishing women who are victims of rape, allowing men to
be polygamous, permitting wife beating. and the censoring speech
Islam's 1,400 years of expansion, wherever Muslims conquered, the
subdued non-Muslim populations were relegated to live under Shariah law
as second-class citizens called 'dhimmi'.
The public proclaiming of the Christian Gospel was forbidden as it is considered insulting Islam.
The claim that Israel has a right to exist is considered insulting Islam.
On July 15, 2011, the OIC received the support of U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at a meeting in Istanbul, Turkey, for the purpose of passing U.N. Resolution 16/18 censoring worldwide any speech insulting Islam.
particularly appreciate the kind personal interest of Secretary Clinton
and the role played by the U.S. towards the consensual adoption of the
2005, the European Union hurriedly passed laws censoring speech
insulting Islam after Muslims rioted, blaming a Danish cartoon.
2012, Hillary Clinton did not respond to requests for increased
security personnel to protect the U.S. Consulate in Benghazi, Libya.
September 11, 2012, a planned attack occurred on the Benghazi
Consulate, which was being listened to in real time by U.S. intelligence
as the terrorists were using U.S. cell phones.
hours into the attack, Hillary Clinton spoke via telephone with the
President and no attempt was made to rescue U.S. Ambassador Chris
few hours later, the administration blamed the attack on a video
insulting Islam, produced by a filmmaker who has since been alleged to
have had links with the U.S. Justice Department.
next morning, Hillary Clinton's State Department contacted YouTube and
Google requesting them to censor speech insulting Islam.
administration began an intense campaign aimed at censoring speech
insulting Islam, as President Obama told the United Nations, September
"The future must not belong to those who slander the prophet of Islam."
reports surfaced that the United States had supplied guns to the
terrorists overthrowing Libya's leaders and that these guns were being
moved through Benghazi to arm terrorists overthrowing Syria's leader,
and are now being used by ISIS terrorists to overthrow Iraq's leaders.
is part of the broader Muslim Brotherhood goal of re-establishing the
Ottoman empire as union of Shariah Muslim countries called a Caliphate.
The United Nations, which began with such high ideals, has unfortunately allowed contrasting deeds, as President Reagan warned the U.N. General Assembly, June 17, 1982:
"Eleanor Roosevelt, one of our first ambassadors to this body, reminded us that the high-sounding words of tyrants stand in bleak contradiction to their deeds. 'Their promises,' she said, 'are in deep contrast to their performances.'
"In these times when more and more lawless acts are going unpunished...some members of this very body show a growing disregard for the U.N. Charter...
