To my Representative and Senators,
I, the undersigned urge you to efficiently take action to cut off taxpayer funding to the United Nations. In light of continued bias and outright shameful decisions seeking to delegitimize America's strongest ally in the region Israel, America's taxpayers should not continue paying a substantial portion of the budget for an organization that harms America's national security and ignores terrorist states and human rights violators to focus its bureaucracy on the middle east's only democracy Israel.
The United States gives an estimated $8 billion in mandatory payments and voluntary contributions to the UN and its affiliated organizations, approximately 22-28% of its various operating budgets. Meanwhile the UN bureaucracy is revealed to be mismanaged and corrupt. UN personnel continue to be accused of sexual misconduct on missions all over Africa and its peacekeepers fail to protect civilians when confronted by violence.
Most troubling, the UN voting body focuses the majority of votes sanctioning and condemning Israel, more combined resolutions against the only democracy in the region and only Jewish state than the terrorist supporting state of Iran or the human rights violators North Korea, Syria and Yemen combined.
-In 2015, there were 20 UN General Assembly resolutions against Israel, four for the rest of the world.
-In 2014, there were 20 UN General Assembly resolutions against Israel, five for the rest of the world.
-In 2013, there were 22 UN General Assembly resolutions against Israel, five for the rest of the world.
-In 2012, there were 21 UN General Assembly resolutions against Israel, six for the rest of the world.
It is time to cut off American funding to a global body that consistently takes action against America's interest and that of our ally.
Therefore I urge you to take action to stop taxpayer funding to the United Nations and its affiliated groups.
