The Corner

Fencing

Delegates of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America (ELCA) are gathered at their annual convention in Orlando, where they are scheduled to vote Saturday on a resolution attacking Israel, which, among other items, condemns the Israeli security fence. CAMERA corrects some of the ECLA’s egregiously inaccurate claims (published in The Lutheran) here.

Interesting note: the United Nations is extremely worried about a terrorist attack against its Manhattan headquarters. So what is it doing? Why … it is building a security fence.

No word yet on the attendant human rights violations. But something must be done about this outrage. I know this personally. My own human rights were violated only a few weeks ago. The congestion caused by construction of the UN’s wall – er, I mean, fence – forced me to wait (you should sit down for this) NEARLY 15 MINUTES to enter the FDR drive.

As a native New Yorker, I felt humiliated and degraded by the occupation at Turtle Bay. I have implored a coalition of concerned NGOs, the Non-Aligned Movement and the Organization of the Islamic Conference to petition the International Court of Justice. It is my hope that the justices – especially those contributed to the ICJ by such bastions of human rights as China, Russia, Sierra Leone, Egypt and Jordan – will rectify this naked land grab. What makes the UN think it can expand its perimeter and snarl traffic like this just because Islamic militants – I’m sorry, I mean freedom fighters engaged in legitimate self-defense – might otherwise blow the place to Kingdom Come?
