WUWT, April 27, 2011: It seems there’s a purge on at the UN to remove failed climate claims. Last week it was the 50 million climate refugees that never materialized and was covered up, this week it’s the poor of Africa they’ve “disappeared” - The UN “disappears” yet another inconvenient climate claim, and once again, botches the cover up

Fox News, April 28, 2011: While Syria’s government is killing hundreds of pro-democracy protesters, the United Nations Development Program, or UNDP, is considering whether to approve a $38 million, five-year aid program for Damascus, to continue what it calls “a well-functioning partnership with the government” - Amid Syrian Crackdown, U.N.

Prosjektleder Stoltenberg i finansieringstrøbbel:

    Reuters, May 6, 2011: Rich countries have missed a U.N. deadline for outlining aid to help developing nations combat climate change. Among industrialized nations, only Russia and Ukraine sent letters to the United Nations by the May 1 deadline -- only to say they did not feel obliged to contribute under a deal to provide almost $30 billion in initial "fast-start" climate funds from 2010-12. The lack of response is a setback to the deal, under which aid is meant to rise to $100 billion a year by 2020 - Rich nations miss U.N. climate finance deadline

Fox News, May 25, 2011: A federal judge in New York has issued an order that could lift the U.N.’s long-recognized diplomatic immunity in the United States involving contract disputes, opening the doors for claims of “hundreds of millions of dollars” against the world body, according to lawyers involved in the case - Contract Dispute With United Nations Could Lead to End of Diplomatic Immunity

Brisbane Times, May 29, 2011: Russia, Japan and Canada told the G8 they would not join a second round of carbon cuts under the Kyoto Protocol at United Nations talks this year and the US reiterated it would remain outside the treaty, European diplomats have said. The future of the Kyoto Protocol has become central to efforts to negotiate reductions of carbon emissions under the UN's Framework Convention on Climate Change, whose annual meeting will take place in Durban, South Africa, from November 28 to December 9 - Kyoto deal loses four big nations

Yahoo! News, June 4, 2011: The United Nations is investigating reports that U.N. peacekeepers stayed in their barracks during recent fighting between forces from northern and southern Sudan in the disputed border region of Abyei, a U.N. official said Saturday. [...] Several U.N. diplomats criticized the peacekeepers from Zambia for failing to carry out their mandate, which includes patrolling and protecting civilians in the oil-rich area. The diplomats spoke on condition of anonymity because of the sensitivity of the issue. A phone call to Zambia's U.N. Mission seeking comment was not answered - UN investigating reports that peacekeepers were holed up during fighting in Sudan's Abyei area

Fox News, June 29, 2011: North Korea has been appointed head of the United Nations Conference on Disarmament -- a 65-member arms control forum -- despite the U.N. Security Council imposing sanctions against the communist regime over its nuclear weapons program. North Korean ambassador So Se Pyong took over the presidency of the U.N. body Tuesday. "I am convinced that the conference is able to achieve concrete results. I am very engaged in moving the conference forward," he told AFP - North Korea to Lead UN's Nuclear Disarmament Group

Jeg var på besøk hos den Norske FN-delegasjonen i New York i april. Der spurte jeg om hvorvidt det ikke svekker FN sin troverdighet at diktaturer har akkurat like mye å si som realtivt frie/demokratiske land. Svaret jeg fikk var "ingen tar Nord Korea seriøst" før jeg fikk stille oppfølgingsspørsmål byttet de tema.

The Weekly Standard, July 23, 2011: On Friday, the Czech Republic became the latest country to pull out of the upcoming U.N. “anti-racism” extravaganza known as Durban III. Canada, Israel, and the United States have already given thumbs down to the event, which the U.N. is bringing to U.S. shores on September 22, 2011. [...] Other Western states, however, are playing a quite different role, in particular Norway and Switzerland. These two countries have decided to take the lead in championing the Durban Declaration in all its manifestations and to fall in lock step with Arab and Islamic priorities - Durban Circulates Draft Resolution

Strengt tatt så tvinger ikke FN noe land til å vedta noe, om du stemmer nei på noe, så kan du nekte å implantere vedtaket i ditt eget land. Eneste som ser ut til å ha en real makt i FN, er sikkerhetsrådet alikevel velger jo stater som ikke vil komme i konflikt med de andre medlemmene der å la være å komme.

Fox News, July 29, 2011: Amid economic sanctions imposed by the U.S. and other Western democracies to pressure Syrian President Bashar al-Assad to end his brutal eleven-year reign, the United Nations has quietly agreed to extend its current development partnership agreement with the Assad government, which was set to expire this year. The decision, made “in the light of recent developments,” according to a document obtained by Fox News, “will permit the United Nations organizations to better assist the country in addressing the impact of current events and their socio-economic consequences” - Despite Western Sanctions Against Syria, U.N. Quietly Extends Development Aid to Country

Ma'an News Agency, August 12, 2011: UNRWA announced on Thursday the suspension of its operations indefinitely in the West Bank city of Jenin and its refugee camp beginning Friday. The organization called the step "regrettable" and said it came in response to "continued threats to our employees and staff in the area" without elaborating on the nature of the threats - UNRWA operations in Jenin suspended indefinitely

The Jerusalem Post, September 2, 2011: Germany's Foreign Ministry announced on Friday that it will not take part in the UN-sponsored Durban III anti-racism conference on September 22, because of the possibility that the event can be turned into a forum for anti-Semitic statements. [...] In addition to Germany, a total of nine countries from the UN’s 193 member nations have pulled out of Durban III, including the US, Canada, Italy, Austria, Australia, the Czech Republic, the Netherlands and Israel. Poland and a number of other democracies are wavering at this point about their participation - Germany pulls out of Durban III anti-racism conference
