The Anti-Defamation League has posted its recommendations for reform for the UN. I am not optimistic--the UN has just dropped any attempt to define "terrorism," and it looks as if the human rights council idea also will not come to pass, alas. The ADL says that "A Reformed UN is one where Israel feels at home."
Here are the ADL's goals:
An end to the 20 plus anti-Israel resolutions which are rubber stamped by the UN General Assembly year after year.
Getting rid of the four UN bodies whose sole responsibility is promoting a vehemently anti-Israel agenda.
Getting rid of the discredited UN Human Rights Commission, which obsessively condemns Israel while ignoring grievous abuses elsewhere in the world.
Recognition of Israel's rightful place in the organization which helped create it.
These make sense to me. --Wendy
