Anne Bayefsky ejected from the UN.....

Well, she supports Israel....
Guards ejected an accredited Canadian commentator from the United Nations after she denounced a controversial report that focuses heavily on alleged Israeli war crimes.

Anne Bayefsky, a York University law professor, offered the only pro-Israel commentary Thursday night at a microphone outside the General Assembly hall following remarks by its Libyan president, Ali Treki, and the chief Palestinian official at the United Nations, Riyad Mansour.

Arab and Muslim countries had overcome Western opposition in the adoption of a resolution endorsing the report by South African Judge Richard Goldstone, which focuses on the Israeli assault last winter on Gaza.

Ms. Bayefsky said the guards confiscated two UN passes the organization had issued to her as director of Touro Law Center's Institute on Human Rights and The Holocaust, and removed her from the building after questioning her.

UN-based blogger Matt Lee said Mr. Mansour, after being told a "pro-Israel non-governmental organization" had spoken at the microphone, asked: "Did we capture them?"

So - it's OK for her and others to speak at the microphone when they aren't criticizing the UN in any way.
But the minute something negative is uttered, the dissenter is whisked away and denied further access.
Is this place in North Korea? NO? Well, then that doesn't sound very fair, now does it?

For many years whenever I drove south to Detroit from Port Huron, Michigan I would note a sign on a small acreage just outside Marysville. The sign read: "Get US out of the UN."
I used to think the person who put it up was just another John Birch Society extremist. Now I realize he/she was a prescient genius.
