Two Things Dubious Yet Hopeful

Posted by Jeremy Brown

File these under things we'd like to believe but are reluctant to, though it is nevertheless a hopeful sign that the words are even being spoken (you'll have to write small to fit this on the file tab):

The first dubious yet refreshing thing:

The UN should be reformed to make intervention in failing states easier, a commission is set to recommend.

[...]

A year ago, in the wake of the international divisions over Iraq, UN Secretary General Kofi Annan warned the UN was at a "fork in the road".

He said the organisation had to review its fundamental policies in order to address the increasing threats of global terrorism, weapons of mass destruction and nuclear proliferation.

He asked a panel of 16 veteran diplomats and politicians, chaired by former Thai Prime Minister Anand Panyarachun, to examine ways the UN should be reformed.

The route the panel is set to advocate is much more interventionist, moving away from the UN's traditional emphasis that it cannot meddle in the internal affairs of a member state.

[...]

The panel wants member states to accept a new obligation - a "responsibility to protect" their own citizens.

If they failed to do so, then intervention by the Security Council would be much more likely than under current UN procedures.

The second item, which I would like to think is more reflective of reality (via Harry's Place):

The Palestinian Authority leadership has ordered PA-controlled media to stop all incitement against Israel and Jews, the London-based Arabic daily A-Shark Al-Awsat reported Monday.

The order also pertains to video clips, songs and music videos which call for the continuation of the armed intifada, the paper reported.

Surely the PA would never do anything to reduce attacks on Isreal. Why, just last week on this very blog I was told by so many of my erstwhile blogaddicts that the PA's goal wasn't Statehood, but THE ULTIMATE DESTRUCTION OF ALL JEWS (and I think there was something about trying to take over the world... but that may have been those two lab mice).

Surely, the PA would never actually just want to have peace and their own country... noooo never.

Also on this blog I hear that Israel wants every bit of land in the middle east, and wants to kick out every single arab, and wall the whole thing off. It couldn't be that they just want to protect their citizens from being blown up in pizza parlors, nope.

In the beginning was the word.
But by the time the second word was added to it,
there was trouble.
For with it came syntax ...

I agree with you the way you view the issue. I remember Jack London once said everything positive has a negative side; everything negative has positive side. It is also interesting to see different viewpoints & learn useful things in the discussion.
