"Its members run up parking tickets, fritter away oil-for-food money, and pass resolutions that are virulently anti-Israel."Jews and Republicans forming quite an alliance here. Can reason stand up to such a powerful foe? I doubt it.
"The U.N. thumbs its nose at U.S. policy-makers and New York taxpayers ... the U.N. barely goes a week without doing something that infuriates me," Mr. Weiner added.
