Quotes

"Today's urgent session on the Islamic State's butchering of Iraq's Christians, Yazidis and other minorities is long overdue, but it's better late than never" said UN Watch Executive Director Hillel Neuer

You can pray at home, because God is everywhere." Strange, this same argument does not keep you from going to the office
... Nevertheless Ban Ki Moon’s office was forced to issue a  statement  saying: "The Secretary-General rejects Mr Falk’s comments. The Secretary-General immediately condemned the Boston marathon bombings and he strongly believes that nothing can justify such an attack.”"
(Watch: William Schabas: "My favorite would be Netanyahu in the dock of the Int'l Criminal Court" )
