Obama is Walking a Fine Line

His speech emphasized human rights and realism in policy. Suddenly, Newt Gingrich and Sarah Palin lauded his rhetoric. If they listened to his speech, I imagine 75% of Americans would have approved of it. Less popular in Europe, he was telling them to come to the plate for his foreign policy in Afghanistan.

Each nation in the European Union maintains its own army. Unified efforts are difficult at best. The leftist societies tend to look upon soldiers more as social workers than fighters. Barack Obama also announced his support for the 1948 UN Universal Declaration of Human Rights not enforced anywhere. The Muslim nations took over the Human Rights Council and have made it into a propaganda organ. Since 95% of their cases involve Israel, they destroy UN progress in human rights. Obama has his work cut out for him.

The UDHR Has Been at the Center of My Life Since 1992

The UDHR serves as a moral compass for me. Whenever I receive news, my first reaction is to evaluate it in terms of human rights. How does it affect me, my friends and my community? My method cuts through a lot of garbage thinking, believe me. Who cares what official Washington thinks, or any other place for that matter? How do ordinary people react? That's the real story.
Every nation member had to embed the UDHR into her body of law. Dictators such as Bush and Obama dismiss the UDHR, but it remains some day to put them on trial. It's a shame the law schools ignore that. If we can't charge a scoundrel with crimes against humanity and murder, we should ignore him.

Some People Confuse Realism with Hatred

In Israel we have no dictators. The moment a person behaves as if he is better or more powerful than the community, he is brought down. When President Weitzman said we had despicable manners, we nailed him on nine-year-old bribery charges. If Israeli bankers, politicians and stock brokers behaved as their US counterparts do, they would sit in prison.
Some call my language "frequently violent and hate-filled" because they disagree with me. They equate Cast Lead with the invasion of Iraq. The UDHR is not a pacifist document. It condemns genocide and all of its components. Human rights enforcement is the key for eliminating genocide, slavery and all manner of tyranny. The UDHR supports human dignity and liberty. The UDHR is not enforced in the USA. It is highly unpopular. The Congress would never pass it into law. This largely explains the long term decline of the country.
