UNICEF is a supporter of terrorism, it is not a nice organization.

“For a summing up, it ought to be enough to note that among the 36 member states on UNICEF’s executive board is China — where the one-child policy has led to staggering numbers of sex-selective abortions, and in some cases, the killing of baby girls. Because the UN values geographic diversity, rather than moral integrity, in parceling out seats on its governing boards, UNICEF’s executive board also includes Somalia, Sudan, Belarus, Russia, and Cuba.

What about UNICEF’s policies? Blogger Yid With Lid has just posted a good rundown of some of the problems, under the headline “This Halloween Please Don’t Give Money to Pro-Terror Anti-Capitalism UNICEF!!” The list includes UNICEF’s fondness for Libya’s late Moammar Qaddafi; UNICEF’s funding of Palestinian summer camps where kids are encouraged to become suicide bombers; and anti-Semitic propaganda such as an advertisement produced by a UNICEF-funded Palestinian youth group, featuring the UNICEF logo under a picture of an axe smashing a Star of David, with the command, in Arabic, “Boycott.”

We have indicted, froze funds and arrested the criminals who fund terrorism from out shores.  Why haven’t the UNICEF folks been jailed?

A Halloween Boo to UNICEF
by Claudia Rosett, Pajama’s Media,  10/30/11  http://pjmedia.com/claudiarosett/a-halloween-boo-to-unicef/?singlepage=true

With Halloween upon us, what could be sweeter than urging your kids to skip the candy and instead collect coins for UNICEF? It’s a grand old tradition, and  many of us did it as kids. Even among UN critics, UNICEF — the UN’s children’s fund — often gets a pass as an outfit which must by nature be benevolent and politically benign. It is, after all, dedicated (at least in theory) to children.

Think again. UNICEF may qualify as a brilliant exercise in branding, and it trades on this to hoover up spare change everywhere from hotels to restaurants to airplane flights — all in the name of needy children. But UNICEF itself is no wide-eyed innocent. It is a big UN fund, bathing in government money (more than $255 million last year in U.S. tax dollars alone), and as such it is prone to the same hypocrisies, Potemkin platitudes, and politicized travesties that bedevil the rest of the UN.

For a summing up, it ought to be enough to note that among the 36 member states on UNICEF’s executive board is China — where the one-child policy has led to staggering numbers of sex-selective abortions, and in some cases, the killing of baby girls. Because the UN values geographic diversity, rather than moral integrity, in parceling out seats on its governing boards, UNICEF’s executive board also includes Somalia, Sudan, Belarus, Russia, and Cuba.

What about UNICEF’s policies? Blogger Yid With Lid has just posted a good rundown of some of the problems, under the headline “This Halloween Please Don’t Give Money to Pro-Terror Anti-Capitalism UNICEF!!” The list includes UNICEF’s fondness for Libya’s late Moammar Qaddafi; UNICEF’s funding of Palestinian summer camps where kids are encouraged to become suicide bombers; and anti-Semitic propaganda such as an advertisement produced by a UNICEF-funded Palestinian youth group, featuring the UNICEF logo under a picture of an axe smashing a Star of David, with the command, in Arabic, “Boycott.”

To this, I can add some further items, such as UNICEF’s announcement on its own web site that, partners being “an essential aspect of UNICEF’s work,” its main partner in North Korea is the North Korean government. That would be the same North Korean government whose totalitarian and utterly self-serving policies have resulted in the stunting and starving to death of millions of North Koreans — a great many of those victims being children.

Then there are such items as UNICEF’s solicitation of funds in 2009 via an Iranian bank, Bank Melli, which is blacklisted by the U.S. Treasury for its role in Iran’s proliferation rackets. UNICEF in that case was raising money for aid to Gaza, which is controlled by the Iranian-backed terrorists of Hamas. One might suppose there are better ways to help children than to funnel money to a terrorist-controlled enclave via a proliferation-prone Iranian bank. Apparently, UNICEF didn’t see it that way.

Over and over, UNICEF “partners” with thug regimes, rationalizing that this is necessary in order to deliver aid to deprived children. But UNICEF is prone to becoming so enthusiastic in its partnering that it ends up promoting precisely the dictators and thugs who cause so much suffering among children in the first place.

Earlier this month, UNICEF handed out a regional award for children’s broadcasting in the Middle East and North Africa. The winner? Iran.

Yes, the same Iran that leads the world in juvenile executions. Iran was celebrated by UNICEF under the press release headline: “Iran wins the Regional UNICEF Award for International Children’s Day of Broadcasting.” What a sweet propaganda gift for Tehran’s theocratic ruling thugs, who had just jailed an Iranian actress for three months and were threatening her with 90 lashes because she had appeared in a movie without wearing a head scarf.

While partnering with Kim Jong Il, praising Iran and bankrolling Palestinian groups putting out anti-Semitic propaganda and encouraging genocidal jihad against Israel, UNICEF is already raking in plenty of U.S. tax dollars from the U.S. government. This Halloween, if the kids want to collect coins for hungry children, surely there are private charities that can better manage the trick of delivering treats?

I find completely laughable that you can so blatantly try to discredit Unicef when you yourself are shown to be so blatantly ignorant about the very same subject you intend to use as proof of your statements, and don’t even have the professionalism of providing any reliable source of information. Instead, you are just fast to spread mindless propaganda against everything that -god forbids!- even sounds anti-american. Oh, I know, let’s talk about Gaddafi. Everybody hates Gaddafi, right? Wrong. Informed journalists might actually tell you that he was beloved by his people and that all the reported news during the war where he was murderer were mostly all lies. Moreover, it is still debatable if he even had the records of human violations he was accused of, and if the people who overthrew him weren’t the real authors of most violations and massacres, since they weren’t really fighting for freedom but were actually a rival tribe trying to gain power. But yet ignorant people like you just reproduce the same lies you are told without actually trying to read-up on that and use the name as if it was self-explanatory as to why Unicef must be pure evil…
oh, right, and you have Unicef support of a Palestinian State. Funny US chose to cut funding immediately after. How’s that called? Ah, yes. Extortion. ‘Believe what we tell you to believe, or to hell with you’. Also, let’s not forget the recognition of Palestine as a State is long overdue – the reason? Israel builds houses in palestinian grounds, violating their territorial sovereignty, for monetary gain. They have even been reported to destroy, bomb or otherwise, Palestinian houses and schools so they can build in their place. Their justification? ‘Palestine is not a state so it’s “no men’s land”. We have as much right to build there as much as any other person’. Not recognizing Palestine as a State has been enabling the killing and destroying of homes and such for the longest time – and don’t let me get started on the weapons! Israel doesn’t only bomb houses: they use a florescent substance that burns at touch. They released them in no less than a school – well, at least the school I saw the pictures of. Very strange how people think they can justify burning kids’ skins and kill them the most painful way possible on their “war on terrorism”. Really, you people, you sad, deluded idiots – you are such a bunch of royal pricks.
