Publisher's Summary

In this follow-up to his best-selling expose about Saudi Arabia's support of global terrorism, Dore Gold, a former ambassador to the United Nations, reveals how the United States faces a dangerous world filled with terrorists and troubling regimes because the United Nations has created a global crisis with its moral relativism. Asserting that the United Nations has failed in its mission to preserve peace, that anti-American and anti-democratic forces have hijacked the UN, Gold argues that the United Nations, founded in 1945 to hold individual nations accountable to a community with common democratic values, has abandoned the guidelines for acceptable conduct and punishment of its violators. Gold carefully documents this devolution, starting with the Cuban Missile Crisis to the 2003 war against Iraq and beyond.

    "Essential"

    This is an extremely important book; fascinating and full of essential information for understanding international affairs in today's world. A knowledge of UN history enables one to sift through increasingly biased news reports to get a grasp of reality. Looking around today's world, fingerprints of the UN's attitude of moral equivalency are everywhere. UN history is also a good example of the effects of corruption in places of unchecked power. To say that this book is essential is putting it mildly. Its content covers a political arena in which our electorate needs much education. This is a life changing book...take advantage!

    "A Must Read!!"

    This is the only book that I can recall giving five stars to, because it is so timely in its nature and well done in its content. We are largely uneducated about the origins, purpose, and history of the UN, and given that a large contingent of American political thinkers believe that this organization should have an increasing influence in our policymaking, we had better change that. Dore Gold does an admirable job of laying out in detail the seminar events in the UNs history, from its founding and in how it has reacted to numerous crises. Almost universally, the performance of the UN has been an abject failure when measured against the ideals upon which it was founded. One need only look at Syria's place on the Security Council and Libya's place on the Human Rights Commission to see the level of self-parody that this worse-than-useless organization has sunk to, but there is a mountain of evidence presented by Gold that dams the UN in detail. Failure to prevent or even stem genocide in Cambodia, Rwanda, and Bosnia; failure to deter, chill or resolve regional conflict after regional conflict; total flaccidity in the realm of human rights; the Oil for Food fiasco; the Keystone Cop weapons inspection regimes... it's all there in black and white. The UN is a failure that causes more problems than it solves. Whatever we decide to do with it, we should never rely on it let alone--God forbid--submit a shred of our sovereignty to it.

    "U.N.: Ally of Tyranny and Chaos"

    Why did "The Killing Fields" Pol Pot never face a tribunal?

    Why didn't the UN take action on Rawanda, Somalia, or much else?

    Dore Gold (author of the excellent "Hatred's Kingdom") writes a very timely book. A very profound book. Moral Equivalency is not tolerance, it rings the death knell of Western Civilization.
    Gold answers the questions and puts forward a strong case that The U.N. is not benign.
    This book is a News Hound's delight.
    Robertson Dean narrates perfectly.Buy this book! You'll be glad you did!
