I tend to agree with you Khalid and am tempted to view Ms. Khalaf's resignation as more a "principled" overture, than a principled "stand", which would, by definition, have entailed remaining in her position to fight for what is right for the UN.
However, I am ignorant of what her obstacles would have been; what strategy UN leadership may be forming to counter this attack on its mission and credibility (if any) and of whether she would have found herself a pariah or some committed allies.
In principle though, I do agree with you. The poor can't afford costly gestures.
