Many Conservatives believe the United Nations’ current function is a useless load of horse manure that too often acts counter to U.S. National Interests and National Sovereignty. Ergo Conservatives such as I, have been advocating leaving the UN or least defund the global body.
I have signed numerous petitions to take some kind of anti-UN action or another. The petitions are typically useless. The only true function of a petition in the USA is to exert influence in rallying Senate and/or House support for any hero member of Congress to introduce legislation that has some form of anti-UN action in it.
It is my pleasure to share a Christians in Defense of Israel (CIDI) calling on Congress to defund the United Nations. A quick perusal of the petition shows the petition-goal is 10,000. Personally it is my belief that a mere 10,000 signatures will move a Senator or Representative to move on defunding. So, it would be nice to round up enough signatures that far surpasses 10,000. I am imagining more like multiple millions. THAT WILL GET THE ATTENTION OF MEMBERS OF CONGRESS!
The reasoning behind the CIDI petition to defund the UN as the immense amount of antisemitism spewed from Arab nations that hate Jews and so by extension accuse the nation Israel of unjustly protecting their sovereignty with excessive abuse. The REALITY is Israel’s neighbors and the Arabs living in the Biblically Promised land of the Jews (i.e. Arabs making up a non-existent people of Palestinians) have been committing acts of terrorism against Jews since Israel’s independence in 1948.
HENCE, the UN has been supporting Jew-Hatred policies at least since the 1960s but even more virulently today.
Below is the CIDI email about the petition followed by the petition wording at the webpage you’ll to visit to sign.
Yes/No: “Defund U.N.”

The U.N. is a hotbed of anti-Semitism where Israel is relentlessly attacked. Recent reports indicate the Palestinians may even call for Israel to be ousted from the U.N.!
But the fact is, OUR TAX DOLLARS are underwriting this massively anti-Israel organization that is “pathologically obsessed” with undermining Israel.
Christians In Defense Of Israel is launching a national petition calling for Congress and the President to DEFUND THE U.N. I need your help launching this effort. I want to reach 10,000 petitions in the next week. If you agree that we must DEFUND THE U.N., please go here to sign, and see below for my full report.
P.S. If you already signed, please share this report with your friends. Go here for a web version. And click here to sign:

REPORT: WHY WE MUST DEFUND THE U.N.
by Mat Staver
Israeli prime minister Benjamin Netanyahu calls it a “place of darkness for my country.”
Donald Trump slammed it in 2016, saying “it surely is not a friend to Israel.”
And U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley blasted its “outrageously biased resolutions” and “breathtaking double standards.”
I’m speaking, of course, about the United Nations. Year after year this “theater of the absurd” viciously attacks, maligns, and demonizes the one Jewish state. Legal scholar Anne Bayefsky denounces it as the “world’s leading purveyor of anti-Semitism.”
It’s a place where Israel can do almost no right. And rogue states like Syria, Iran and North Korea can do almost no wrong. Just last year, the 193-nation UN General Assembly passed 21 resolutions criticizing Israel. But only six targeting the rest of the world.
Somehow the Middle East’s one true democracy—a lighthouse of freedom—deserved three times more censure than all other nations. And this has been going on for decades.
Nearly 40 years ago, America’s ambassador to the UN Jeanne Kirkpatrick charged the UN was “pathologically obsessed” with Israel. She called it “the principal forum of a concerted worldwide campaign against” the Jewish state. That was 1981. It’s still true today. And will be in years to come . . . unless you and I act now.
+ + The UN: A failed U.S. investment!
American taxpayers–including you and me–send a staggering $10 billion each year to the United Nations. That’s more than 22 percent of all UN revenue. It’s more than the combined total paid by 176 other UN member nations.
U.S. Ambassador to the UN Nikki Haley declared, “We have an obligation to demand more for our investment. And if our investment fails, we have an obligation to spend our resources in more productive ways.”
I could not agree more–and I hope you do as well. After more than 70 years and billions of American taxpayer dollars, the UN is a failed investment.
That’s why the time is now to demand the President and Congress STOP all funding to the United Nations. Click here now to sign our Defund the United Nations petition.
Thank you for joining with me!
God bless you. God bless the USA. God bless Israel.
Mat Staver, President

Year after year the United Nations is a hotbed of anti-Semitism where Israel is demonized, attacked, and condemned … relentlessly. And American taxpayers foot the bill! American taxpayers send a staggering $10 billion each year to the United Nations. That’s more than 22 percent of all UN revenue. It’s more than the total paid by 176 other UN member nations combined.
But why should Israel’s best friend pay the bill for one of its worst enemies? After more than 70 years and billions of American taxpayer dollars, the UN is a failed investment. That’s why the time is now to demand the President and Congress STOP all funding to the United Nations.
Do you agree that we must DEFUND THE U.N.? Then add your name to this important petition!
The Petition States:
As an American citizen, a taxpayer, and a friend of Israel, I am calling on President Trump and the Congress to slash the American contribution to the United Nations to zero. And to do so immediately.
America sends nearly $10 billion each year to the United Nations—roughly 22 percent of the total UN budget and far more than any other nation. And yet the UN is one of the world’s most viciously anti-Semitic bodies. It singles out Israel—the one true democracy in the Middle East—for harsh, unreasonable and unrelenting condemnation. It does all this with the financial support of the United States. And the time for this to end is NOW.
