    RUSSIAN FORCES ESCORED 71 UN AID CONVOYS IN SYRIA IN 2018.

    Putin habitually scratch that area that does not need to scratch. Had Assad asked for that? First Putin invited US forces to Syria to liberate Raqqa and then invited UN AID convoys.

    Putin should either rescue Syrian nation or leave to Trump to hold them all hostage. There is no any other option.

    Had Assad asked for that? No. First Putin invited US forces to Syria to liberate Raqqa and now escorted UN AID convoys. The UN is completely fake organization. Can UN exert pressure on Israel to leave 71 years old blocked on Palestinians, release Palistanians prisoners and leave the land of Palestine? No

    Putin should either rescue Syrian nation or leave to Turkey. There is no any other option.

      “It may mean reviewing or suspending Israel’s privileges as a state member in the United Nations,” he says. “It may mean that countries in the world, particularly those with significant trading or political relationships with Israel, would review their relationships with Israel in the military, political, diplomatic, and economic investment spheres. It may mean that Israel would face some forms of restrictions in its abilities to wind up trading.” …

      In a response to Fox News, Lynk stood by his comments and said they speak to “the importance of ensuring that nations obey international law and that effective measures should be available to the international community to curb unlawful behaviour by UN member states.”

      He said that Israel is in “direct contravention” of more than 40 U.N. Security Council resolutions, including resolutions condemning the building of settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

      “What should be done with respect to a member state who clearly defies a body of UNSC resolutions, contrary to their responsibilities under the Charter and as an occupying power?” he said. “If this behaviour is ignored, then the offending member-state will surely take that as a license to continue the prohibited act, and the status of international law will be degraded.”

      “If it is clear that Israel has no intent to comply with the repeated direction of the international community, then other measures within the remedial menu should be considered and applied,” he said, adding that similar measures had successfully been used against other countries before.”

      “the U.N. could provide armed military or police forces, if given a mandate by the Security Council, “to deter and, if necessary, ensure the safety of the civilian population.” As an alternative, he said a group of “like-minded” countries operating under a U.N. mandate to provide physical protection rather than a U.N. mission.”

      UN has a track record of getting the food and supplies to the rebels/terrorists in wars, so hopefully none of this food was diverted from the civilians.

    This is wonderful news that the Russians are doing so much good in Syria. I hope that they’re on board with the Palestinian protection force, and suspending Israel from the UN, efforts being worked on at the UN to get humanity’s Jew problem corrected. As part of dejudifying our planet to create an Israel and Jew free world that will be much better for humanity.
