Another U.N.-Employed Terrorist

The United Nations has a well-known and long-established hostility to Israel and its right to protect itself. What’s less widely understood is that the U.N. often aids and abets those who seek to do harm to the Jewish State. Terrorists have used U.N. vehicles to transport terrorists and weapons, and the U.N. has even admitted to having Hamas members on its payroll.

A recent example once again highlights how the U.N. too often does more harm than good when it comes to addressing conflict in the Middle East. Today it was reported that Awad al-Qiq, a teacher and deputy headmaster at a United Nations school in Gaza, was also working for the terrorist group Islamic Jihad. Al Qiq worked at the Rafah Prep Boys School run by the U.N. Relief and Works Agency for Palestinian refugees. But he was killed last week in an Israeli air strike on a rocket and weapons-making shop in Rafah, where al Qiq allegedly led the terrorist organization’s “engineering” (read: bomb-making) unit.

In related news, an editorial in today’s Wall Street Journal points out that the U.N. has condemned Israel for “human rights violations” 635 times in the last five years alone. That’s more times than the U.N. has cited Congo, Burma and North Korea—combined! It’s ironic that 60 years after a United Nations’ resolution declared the birth of the Jewish nation, it is the U.N. itself that has in many ways been Israel’s biggest adversary.

Voter Fraud Watch

Back in 2006, liberal activist group ACORN was busted for voter fraud when its Washington State affiliate submitted 1,800 new voter registration forms, 1794 of which were total fakes. Apparently, ACORN workers simply invented Social Security numbers and took names from the phone book in what the Washington Secretary of State called the “worst case of election fraud in our state’s history.”

Last week, the United States Supreme Court ruled that states can require voters to produce photo I.D. before voting. Predictably, ACORN was aghast at the decision, calling it “One more strike against the basic right to vote…that further disenfranchises people of color and low income Americans.” That’s a bold remark given that if photo I.D. requirements had been in effect in Washington State two years ago, ACORN’s fraud scandal would never have happened. It’s also very revealing, since all citizens have photo I.D.s, and the only people who don’t are illegal aliens, who are, by definition, not allowed to vote. The only ones disenfranchised by the photo I.D. requirement are those who should not be voting anyway.

Even with the new Supreme Court ruling, this year’s election may be tainted with voter fraud. Women’s Voices Women Vote, a liberal Washington, D.C.-based nonprofit voter outreach group that targets unmarried women is receiving criticism in seven states for possible fraudulent voter registration practices. Mailings and phone calls from the group have confused thousands of primary voters. Arizona’s Secretary of State called the group’s mailings “misleading and deceptive” for suggesting that voters were legally required to send back the enclosed registration forms. And North Carolina voters last week received automated messages from the group informing them to expect a voter registration packet in the mail, nearly two weeks after the mail-in-voter registration deadline for the Tar Heel state’s presidential primary.

Women’s Voices Women’s Vote spokespeople say the group is working hard to correct these missteps. But something tells me that in an election that may be the most important in a generation, we have not heard the last of these types of voter fraud scandals.
