The Disunited Non-Nations

By Garner Ted Armstrong

Decades ago, I decried the huge amounts of Foreign Aid given to India, a nation which rarely, if ever, voted with the United States in the so-called “United Nations.” Yet, in the 1970’s what was billed as the “largest peacetime armada in history” plied the oceans from the US to India because of a massive famine; carrying millions of tons of Kansas and Illinois wheat and corn to a nation which is protein deficient; a nation close to starvation at the time.

The plight of India gave rise to a sensational book, “Famine 1975, America’s Decision; Who Will Survive?”

The Hindus in India worship cows. Millions of cattle roam the streets of the cities, nonchalantly eating from shopkeeper’s stalls, or lying down in the middle of busy intersections, forcing traffic to go around them. I witnessed this when I was in Bombay, India.

The lack of protein, according to some nutritionists, causes lack of energy; indolence. Here was a nation with millions of cattle which could have been consumed to stave off starvation, yet refused to slaughter and eat their abundant beef supply, while America strove mightily to rescue their starving population by sending our wheat and food grains.

Recently, I witnessed an Indian mother, sitting at the back end of a cow, anointing the head of a tiny infant with cow urine! This, to her, was a religious, spiritual ritual!

The other day, I received a shocking set of statistics via Email from someone who forwarded it to me. I would like to share it with you.

Think about the so-called “United Nations” as you read them, and be sure to check out my many articles written about the UN in our archives.

THE E-MAIL:

Editor’s Note: The following was published in Hamilton Ohio’s The Journal-News on May 9, 2003, apparently as an opinion/editorial piece. You may view the source article here. The facts and figures presented have not been independently verified.

The United States gives out $13.3 billion tax dollars in direct Foreign Aid annually. The United States is above and beyond the single most generous benefactor of the United Nations, donating $2.4 billion dollars of YOUR money, to primarily third-world dictators.

This amount is 25% of the United Nations budget. In addition, the United States also gives another $1.4 billion tax dollars to United Nations' programs and agencies. The American taxpayers fund more for the United Nations than ALL of the other 177 member nations COMBINED.

What most Americans do not realize is that the vast majority of the recipients of the of US Foreign Aid routinely vote against the wishes of the United States in the United Nations at an average rate of 74%. In other words, of the $13.3 billion tax dollars invested in direct Foreign Aid only about 26% or $3.5 billion went to support people who endorsed American initiatives or causes. A staggering $9.8 billion tax dollars went to causes and people who were and are in open and direct opposition to the United States' interests and objectives.

Listed below are the actual voting records of various Arabic/Islamic States which are recorded in both the US State Department and United Nations’ records:

Kuwait votes against the United States 67% of the time.
Qatar votes against the United States 67% of the time.
Morocco votes against the United States 70% of the time.
United Arab Emirates votes against the U. S. 70% of the time.
Jordan votes against the United States 71% of the time.
Tunisia votes against the United States 71% of the time.
Saudi Arabia votes against the United States 73% of the time.
Yemen votes against the United States 74% of the time.
Algeria votes against the United States 74% of the time.
Oman votes against the United States 74% of the time.
Sudan votes against the United States 75% of the time.
Pakistan votes against the United States 75% of the time.
Libya votes against the United States 76% of the time.
Egypt votes against the United States 79% of the time.
Lebanon votes against the United States 80% of the time.
India votes against the United States 81% of the time
.
Syria votes against the United States 84% of the time.
Mauritania votes against the United States 87% of the time.

US Foreign Aid to those that hate us:

Egypt, for example, after voting 79% of the time against the United States, still receives $2 billion annually in US Foreign Aid.

Jordan votes 71% against the United States and receives $192,814,000 annually in US Foreign Aid.

Pakistan votes 75% against the United States, yet receives $6,721,000 annually in US Foreign Aid.

India votes 81% against the United States, but receives $143,699,000 annually in US Foreign Aid.

Perhaps it is time to get out of the UN and give the tax savings back to the American workers who are having to skimp and sacrifice to pay the taxes.

END OF E-MAIL.

Don’t hold your breath if you expect this administration, or any other, to walk away from the UN.

The false hope of “globalism” will not save America. Only God can.
