Time to Take Down the Tower of Babel

The Tower of Babel was an enormous tower intended as the crowning achievement of the city of Babilu. Babel was a city that united humanity, all speaking a single language and migrating from the east; it was the home city of the great king , and the first city to be built after the Great Flood. The people decided their city should have a tower so immense that it would have "its top in the heavens." However, the Tower of Babel was not built for the worship and praise of God. God seeing what the people were doing and sinning against him, confused their language and scattered the people throughout the earth.

Genesis 11: 1-9

1 Now the whole world had one language and a common speech.

2 As men moved eastward, they found a plain in Shinar and settled there.

3 They said to each other, "Come, let's make bricks and bake them thoroughly." They used brick instead of stone, and tar for mortar.

4 Then they said, "Come, let us build ourselves a city, with a tower that reaches to the heavens, so that we may make a name for ourselves and not be scattered over the face of the whole earth."

5 But the LORD came down to see the city and the tower that the men were building.

6 The LORD said, "If as one people speaking the same language they have begun to do this, then nothing they plan to do will be impossible for them.

7 Come, let us go down and confuse their language so they will not understand each other."

8 So the LORD scattered them from there over all the earth, and they stopped building the city.

9 That is why it was called Babel —because there the LORD confused the language of the whole world. From there the LORD scattered them over the face of the whole earth.

Today we have a modern Tower of Babel. It is known as the United Nations. It is where nations gather to babel like monkeys and do nothing. It is a hot bed of corruption, and bigotry.

But it did not start this way. When the United Nations was formed it was after the horrors of World War 2 and the aftermath of the Nazi horrors. It was formed with the highest ideals. A place for nations to come to an talk out their differences, instead of resorting to war. A noble ideal. For a year they wrote a charter and a declaration. In this Declaration of Human Rights they stated:

Whereas recognition of the inherent dignity and of the equal and inalienable rights of all members of the human family is the foundation of freedom, justice and peace in the world,

Whereas disregard and contempt for human rights have resulted in barbarous acts which have outraged the conscience of mankind, and the advent of a world in which human beings shall enjoy freedom of speech and belief and freedom from fear and want has been proclaimed as the highest aspiration of the common people,

Whereas it is essential, if man is not to be compelled to have recourse, as a last resort, to rebellion against tyranny and oppression, that human rights should be protected by the rule of law,

Whereas it is essential to promote the development of friendly relations between nations,

Whereas the peoples of the United Nations have in the Charter reaffirmed their faith in fundamental human rights, in the dignity and worth of the human person and in the equal rights of men and women and have determined to promote social progress and better standards of life in larger freedom,

Whereas Member States have pledged themselves to achieve, in co-operation with the United Nations, the promotion of universal respect for and observance of human rights and fundamental freedoms,

Whereas a common understanding of these rights and freedoms is of the greatest importance for the full realization of this pledge.

A noble ideal indeed. To become a member of this organization a nation had to believe in and follow these principles. And for 20 years this organization worked.

What happened to it? In the beginning it was dominated by the United States and its allies. The principles on which it was founded was rigorously followed and the people running the organization were of the highest moral character. Men such as Gladwyn Jebb, Trygve Lie, and Dag Hammarskjold. Men of whose names are remembered with fondness and admired for their wisdom and courage.

20 years ago the rising nations of Africa and the Muslim alliance insisted that they have control of the UN. We saw the rise to power of Boutros Boutros-Ghali, and Kofi Annan. Then the hatred and corruption started.

The first move was to invite that mass murderer Yassar Arafat to speak at the UN. His speech in which he brandished a gun, waving it in his hand, marked a major turning point in the history of the UN. No longer would it be a place to prevent war, but a place to make war on fellow states. Then they passed the infamous UN Resolution 3379. Which equated Zionism with Racism. Thus the phase of anti-Semitism has begun. Resolution after resolution condemning Israel for alleged Human Rights Violations were and are being passed. Yet not one of the Muslim nations which have never accepted the Universal Declaration on Human Rights has ever been condemned.

Genocide is allowed to occur. Why condemn it? It is just some Africans or Muslims having a little fun. Their religion permits this, and we cannot condemn their religion.

Corruption is allowed to flourish. Why condemn it? I need the money to retire on. It is common place in our nations, so what's wrong with it?

Israel is the world's biggest violator of Human Rights. Why condemn this? They are only Jews. And Mohammad commanded us to kill all the Jews. You cannot condemn Islam. It is not allowed.

It is time to stop this madness and take back the UN. We can start. It would be very easy to do. Hit them in the pocketbook. Have all the western nations stop paying their dues until they revert to proper civilized behavior. And failing that, have a mass exodus of all Western nations from the UN. Close the NY building and raze it to the ground.
