Victor's Blog about the Web, Security and Life

The web for me is a hobby where standards and best practices are daily bread. Security is a concern that everybody must be aware of its details for IT in general, and the web in particular, to be a safer place. My life, on the other hand, is that of a regular Lebanese citizen where politics and social issues are discussed on a daily basis. I hope you enjoy reading my blog and make sure to drop me a comment about any topic you find interesting.

Israel: More Powerful than the UN!

These are the 70 UN Resolutions against Israel. No need to add that Israel never respected any single one of them. The UN has always been royally ignored by the State of Israel. The details of the resolutions, and all other UN Security Counsil resolutions can be found and downloaded on the United Nations website.

This also proves how useless the UN is when it comes to Israel being in question. Taking this fact into consideration, world leaders and politicians must understand that this type of behavious is exactly what makes the Middle East problem more complicated and unresolvable.

Israel must be forced to abide to the International Law. Otherwise, extreme organizations and terrorism will never stop.
