About Arabs / Muslims (& Allies!) Voting "Against" The USA at UN

I got this typical forwarded email from some friend about how Arabs/Muslims voted "against" the US at the UN. It would have been funny and dumb had it not been so dangerous, because many people read such stuff and think it is true. Please feel free to share this blog article with friends so decent people do not become bigots based on reading junk stats they get in forwarded emails from unknown sources.

The original item is marked with ">" marks, my comments are entered between the lines. This is something I have seen before but the person who put together this list forgets (and deliberately ignores) what the fasts are.


> This oughta upset everybody:

This selective and thinly veiled bigotry of the writer against Muslims oughta upset people more.

> How they vote in the United Nations:
>
> Below are the actual voting records of various Arabic/Islamic
> States which are recorded in both the US State Department and
> United Nations records:

It is interesting to see most Latin American, European and African countries not included here. Unfortunately it would show that they TOO often disagree with US and its policies. Additionally, look at CLOSE US allies on that same page at snopes.com and you see how often these allies voted "against the US". ''

Even Israel, which sucks up more US resources than everyone else AND ALSO SPIES ON THE USA, opposed us 11% of the time.

Australia 33 26 44%
Canada 31 32 51%
Israel 56 7 11%
Japan 26 36 58%
UntKng 40 27 40%
France 36 31 46%

An intelligent person would then at least ask the question, "Hmmm, could the whole world be wrong, or could it be that my government does things almost everyone else hates?" Ah. but asking that question in America today would get you labeled "unpatriotic."

I am laughing my butt off. This is the country were the US has kept a dictator in power for THIRTY YEARS and where Laura Bush was just recently PRAISING his sham elections (HE picked who could run against him!!! And Laura loved it).... You will love this piece, it's a must read (on this blog)... "BUSH BURNING (IN) THE MIDDLE EAST" ...Comments welcome.

Another country where we keep an unelected so-called King in power....

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

Pakistan is ANOTHER country we ONLY give aid when military generals overthrow elected governments. I am from Pakistan before I became an American. I have seen this happen over and over, even today. Also, what is amazing is how the writer shows this HUGE number as the aid to Pakistan.... it was just over Six Million Dollars... Just for comparison we are spending $186 MILLION DOLLARS EVERY DAY in our self-inflicted war in Iraq that Bush started with lies and to enrich Haliburton.

> India votes 81% against the United States
> receives $143,699,000 annually.

This is amazing.... I did not realize India was an Arab or a Muslim country.... in either case, this is the country that American companies are falling over each to export American jobs to, which was a Soviet ally for 50 years, and is now allying with China and IRAN.... while Bush has promised to give them nuclear (well, he said NUCULAR) technology too. How else can we shoot ourselves in the foot?

Yes, let's start with $186 MILLION DAILY being burnt in Iraq, not counting Afghanistan and not counting the 2000 Americans killed there to avenge those killed on 9/11 not by Iraqis but by Saudis ( whose King Bush KISSES {yewwww} and HOLDS HANDS with and Bush family does business with... INCLUDING the Bin Laden family )....

We really oughta find the person who wrote the original piece and ship him off to serve the country for real, in Iraq.
