Tower of Babble

Tower of Babble: How the United Nations Has Fueled Global Chaos

By Dore Gold

IHC Review

Tower of Babble delineates the history of the United Nations from its inception to present day (latter half of 2004).

The author, Mr. Dore Gold, served as an ambassador to the United Nations representing the State of Israel from 1997 through 1999. This professional association has allowed Mr. Gold to be an eyewitness to the flaws and failures of the U.N. These blemishes are at once eroding and challenging the original concept of human dignity and freedom from oppression, upon which the U.N. was founded.

From the ashes of the League of Nations, which failed to maintain peace and deter tyrants as evidenced with the horrors of the Nazi regime, the ennobling concept of the U.N. was envisioned.

Established at the conclusion of World War II, the mandate of the U.N. was to prevent despotism, maintain individual human rights and strive for universal peace.

The “four policemen” of the world, the U.S., China, Russia and Great Britain, were to be the backbone of the United Nations. In time, as other nations were admitted, the erosion of moral clarity in the U.N. became prevalent.

Tower of Babble demonstrates through historical record how the U.N. has repeatedly failed to liberate the oppressed. As despotic regimes were admitted, the emphasis on the rights of the individual over the state subtly shifted to the rights of the state over the individual.

An organization created to prevent oppression devolved into a defender of oppressive groups and countries, almost from its infancy. The first two major tests of the moral authority of the U.N. proved abject failures when the U.N. refused to do anything to prevent the outbreak of the first Arab-Israeli war, as well as a conflict between India and Pakistan around the same time. This was to be just the beginning of an astonishingly long record of not only failure to stop wars of aggression, but even to become an ally to the aggressor.

Where clear moral behavior was to be the standard, the U.N. avoids taking a stance, insisting instead on “objectivity.” The very organization founded on the need for moral clarity in the world prefers to place the criminal on the same level as the victim. Indeed, the U.N. has so often demanded “moral neutrality” of itself that this mantra has written the death certificates of countless humans, even nations. The book identifies U.N. objectivity and neutrality as nothing less than pure immorality.

It is precisely this ‘objectivity’ that has ensured the genocide of the Darfur region of the Sudan, the creation of Palestinian refugees in the first Arab-Israeli war (not to mention 570,000 Jewish refugees from hostile Arab states), horror in Kashmir, the subjugation of Tibet and the use of brute force to fuse new states in the Third World.

The official and even encouraged seating of terror states, such as Syria, on the U.N. Security Council marries the formal and official approval of state-sponsored terrorism to the denigration of humanity.

Included in the appendix of Mr. Gold’s book are numerous documents evidencing and establishing the “paper trail” of moral zigzags and 180 degree turns effected by the U.N. to accommodate and justify its partnership with terror and despotism.

The original “Charter,” the U.N.’s deviation and eventual bastardization of its mission, its overt support of terrorist groups and regimes, its penalization of victims and reward system for aggressors are laid-out in an easily understood manner to the reader. What needs to take place to bring the U.N. back to its original mandate is likewise considered.

Those who are unaware that the current Secretary-General Kofi Annan feels sovereign states must receive U.N. approval before defending their own citizens and interests should read this book to more clearly see how each country in the world remains threatened by the dark underbelly of the U.N.

Those who are aware of the manner in which terrorist organizations and terror-supporting states have hijacked the U.N. should read this book to deepen their understanding of the mechanisms at work against individual liberty, dignity and individual right to life.

Those who desire a better understanding of the dangerous course the U.N. is pursuing, as well as an understanding of what can be done to bring the U.N. back from the brink of world chaos, owe it to themselves and future generations of humankind to read this insightful treatise. It confirms how the protector of freedom and individual rights has become the enabler of tyranny, defender of genocide and global affront to all that is valued as decent and good.
