Perhaps a SG caves in to political pressure and the UNSC is surely an ethical Achilles Heel but it's not the UN that's failed the nations of the world, it's they who have failed it. A technical point I suppose but I'm not going to witness the ignorance of petty nationalism wreck a noble institution, then remain silent while the resulting bitter resentment is misdirected at it, killing its idea as well.
The world's citizens must decide whether remaining alienated from their common interests, by the machinations of narrow nationalist ones, can sustain or not. And maybe Palestine's future has very much to do with that.
