U.N.'s "high ideals" replaced with "growing disregard for UN Charter"
Franklin D. Roosevelt coined the name "United Nations" for the allied countries fighting together to preserve western Judeo-Christian civilization against the National Socialist Workers Party (Nazi) and their totalitarian axis powers.
Franklin Roosevelt stated May 10, 1940:
"Americans might have to become the guardian of Western culture, the protector of Christian civilization."
Roosevelt stated on Labor Day, September 1, 1941:
"Preservation of these rights is vitally important now, not only to us who enjoy them - but to the whole future of Christian civilization."
Roosevelt stated September 2, 1940:
"If the spirit of God is not in us, and if we will not prepare to give all that we have and all that we are to preserve Christian civilization in our land, we shall go to destruction."
Roosevelt stated June 6, 1944:
"Almighty God, Our sons, pride of our Nation, this day have set upon a mighty endeavor, a struggle to preserve our republic, our religion, and our civilization."
Speaking on Justice for War Crimes, March 24, 1944, Franklin Roosevelt explained the original goal of the "United Nations" involved protecting the Jews:
"In one of the blackest crimes of all history -- begun by the Nazis ... the wholesale systematic murder of the Jews of Europe goes on unabated ...
Hundreds of thousands of Jews ... are now threatened with annihilation as Hitler's forces descend ...
The United Nations have made it clear that they will pursue the guilty ... All who knowingly take part in the deportation of Jews to their death ... are equally guilty with the executioner ...
The United Nations are fighting to make a world in which tyranny and aggression cannot exist."
On November 11, 1942, President Roosevelt complimented the Jewish Theological Seminary of America:
"If the world to emerge from the war after a victory of the United Nations is to be a world of enduring peace and of freedom, that peace and that freedom must be founded on renewed loyalty to the spiritual values ...
Enemies of mankind who are arrayed in battle against us realized this, and therefore began their effort to subdue the world with an assault on religious institutions ... which ... taught ... the dignity and worth of human personality ...
In cooperation with Catholic, Jewish, and Protestant scholars ... it will in time, I trust, become an increasingly powerful instrument for enlightening men of all faiths."
Franklin D. Roosevelt died April 12, 1945.
The day after his funeral, President Harry S Truman told Congress, April 16, 1945:
"Our forefathers came to our rugged shores in search of religious tolerance ...
Within an hour after I took the oath of office, I announced that the San Francisco (United Nations) Conference would proceed ...
In the memory of our fallen President ... I appeal to every American ... to support our efforts to build a strong and lasting United Nations Organization ... with Divine guidance, and your help ...
I humbly pray Almighty God, in the words of King Solomon: 'Give therefore thy servant an understanding heart.'"
In April 25, 1945, President Truman addressed United Nations delegates at the Fairmont Hotel in San Francisco:
"At no time in history has there been a more important Conference than this one in San Francisco which you are opening today ...
This Conference owes its existence, in a large part, to the vision, foresight, and determination of Franklin Roosevelt ...
We must work ... to guarantee justice -- for all ... We must make certain ... that another war will be impossible.
We, who have lived through the torture and the tragedy of two world conflicts, must realize the magnitude of the problem before us ...
We must not continue to sacrifice the flower of our youth merely to check madmen, those who in every age plan world domination ...
Justice remains the greatest power on earth ...
As we are about to undertake our heavy duties, we beseech our Almighty God to guide us in the building of a permanent monument to those who gave their lives that this moment might come. May He lead our steps in His own righteous path of peace."
The United Nations Charter was signed June 26, 1945, by 51 member nations.
The United Nations began with high hopes, as President Harry S Truman stated, March 6, 1946:
"We have just come though a decade in which the forces of evil in various parts of the world have been lined up in a bitter fight to banish from the face of the earth both these ideals -- religion and democracy ...
founded on one basic principle, the worth and dignity of the individual man and woman.
Dictatorship ... is founded on the doctrine that ... men and women and children were put on earth solely for the purpose of serving the State ..."
"The Protestant Church, the Catholic Church, and the Jewish Synagogue -- bound together in the American unity of brotherhood -- must provide the shock forces to accomplish this moral and spiritual awakening ...
Unless it is done, we are headed for the disaster we would deserve ... We have tried to write into the Charter of the United Nations the essence of religion."
One of the first acts of the United Nations was, on May 15, 1948, to recognize the State of Israel.
Truman commented at a Press Conference (New York Times, August 17, 1945):
"The American view on Palestine is that we want to let as many of the Jews into Palestine as it is possible."
The 1948 Democrat Party Platform stated:
"President Truman, by granting immediate recognition to Israel, led the world in extending friendship and welcome to a people who have long sought and justly deserve freedom and independence.
We pledge full recognition to the State of Israel. We affirm our pride that the United States under the leadership of President Truman played a leading role in the adoption of the resolution of November 29, 1947, by the United Nations General Assembly for the creation of a Jewish State."
In 1953, President Eisenhower addressed the United Nations:
"The whole book of history reveals mankind's never-ending quest for peace and mankind's God-given capacity to build."
The President of the United Nations' General Assembly, 13th Session, was Lebanese diplomat Charles Habib Malik, who helped Eleanor Roosevelt and others write the United Nations Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
Charles Habib Malik stated in 1958:
"The good (in the United States) would never have come into being without the blessing and power of Jesus Christ ...
Whoever tries to conceive the American word without taking full account of the suffering and love and salvation of Christ is only dreaming.
I know how embarrassing this matter is to politicians, bureaucrats, businessmen and cynics; but, whatever these honored men think, the irrefutable truth is that the soul of America is at its best and highest, Christian."
In subsequent years, the mission of the United Nations has become unclear.
President Dwight Eisenhower confided to the National Junior Chamber of Commerce, June 10, 1963:
"The United Nations has seemed to be two distinct things to the two worlds divided by the iron curtain ...
To the free world it has seemed that it should be a constructive forum ...
To the Communist world it has been a convenient sounding board for their propaganda, a weapon to be exploited in spreading disunity and confusion."
Former President Herbert Clark Hoover told the American Newspaper Publishers Association, April 27, 1950:
"I suggest that the United Nations should be reorganized without the Communist nations in it.
If that is impractical, then a definite New United Front should be organized of those peoples who disavow communism, who stand for morals and religion, and who love freedom ..."
"What the world needs today is a definite, spiritual mobilization of the nations who believe in God against this tide of Red agnosticism.
It needs a moral mobilization against the hideous ideas of the police state and human slavery ...
It is a proposal to redeem the concept of the United Nations to the high purpose for which it was created ...
It is a proposal for moral and spiritual cooperation of God-fearing free nations ... in rejecting an atheistic other world."
Eisenhower's delegate to the United Nations was Henry Cabot Lodge, Jr., who sent a letter to every member state, December 30, 1955:
"I propose that God should be openly and audibly invoked at the United Nations ...
I do so in the conviction that we cannot make the United Nations into a successful instrument of God's peace without God's help -- and that with His help we cannot fail.
To this end I propose that we ask for that help."
The United Nations has never acted on Lodge's proposal to open with prayer.
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations' General Assembly, December 10, 1948.
Making no acknowledgement of God or reference to rights being endowed by a Creator, as the United States Declaration of Independence does, the U.N. Universal Declaration of Human Rights considered the consent of member nations as the source of human rights.
- Freedom of opinion and expression;
- Freedom to change religions;
- Right to education;
- No slavery;
- No forced marriages;
- No torture; and
- No inhumane punishment.
Though Franklin Roosevelt expressly desired to "preserve Christian civilization," the United Nations has lent its powerful influence to promoting an anti-Christian sexual agenda and the killing of unborn children.
In 1969, the Organization of Islamic Cooperation, OIC, was formed by leaders of 57 Islamic states.
In 1990, the OIC rejected the U.N.'s Universal Declaration of Human Rights by passing their own "Cairo Declaration on Human Rights in Islam," which affirmed Shariah law as supreme, including:
- the death penalty for those leaving Islam;
- punishing women who are victims of rape;
- allowing men to be polygamous;
- permitting wife beating; and
- censoring speech insulting Islam.
As OIC nations wield immense financial and political power, they have influenced other nations to effectively abandon the U.N.'s Universal Declaration of Human Rights.

On June 17, 1982, President Reagan warned the U.N. General Assembly:
"Eleanor Roosevelt, one of our first ambassadors to this body, reminded us that the high-sounding words of tyrants stand in bleak contradiction to their deeds. 'Their promises,' she said, 'are in deep contrast to their performances ...'"
"In these times when more and more lawless acts are going unpunished ... some members of this very body show a growing disregard for the U.N. Charter."
U.S Secretary of State Michael R. Pompeo stated July 8, 2019:
"Under the leadership of Eleanor Roosevelt, the 1948 Universal Declaration on Human Rights ended forever the notion that nations could abuse their citizens without attracting notice or repercussions.
We must ... be vigilant to ensure that human rights discourse not be corrupted or hijacked or used for dubious or malignant purposes ...
It’s a sad commentary on our times that more than 70 years after the Universal Declaration of Human Rights, gross violations continue throughout the world, sometimes even in the name of human rights.
International institutions, designed and built to protect human rights have drifted from their original mission ...
The time is right for an informed review of the role of human rights in American foreign policy."
President Eisenhower stated February 20, 1957:
"No one deplores more than I the fact that the Soviet Union ignores the resolutions of the United Nations."
A paradoxical question is posed:
should freedom of speech and freedom of religion be granted to groups whose ultimate goal is to abolish freedom of speech and freedom of religion?
During Islam's 1,400 years of expansion, wherever fundamentalist Muslims conquered, the subdued non-Muslim populations were restricted in their freedom of speech and freedom of religion, being relegated to live under Shariah law as second-class citizens called "dhimmi."
Proclaiming of the Christian Gospel was forbidden, being considered "insulting" to sharia Islamists, as was also the claim that Israel has a right to exist.
The U.S. Navy and Marines fought the Muslim Barbary Pirate Wars, 1801-1805 and 1815, freeing hundreds of American sailors held captive.
Alexis de Tocqueville wrote in Democracy in America, 1840, Vol. II, Book 1, Chapter V:
"Mohammed brought down from heaven and put into the Koran not religious doctrines only, but political maxims, criminal and civil laws, and scientific theories.
The Gospels, on the other hand, deal only with the general relations between man and God and between man and man. Beyond that, they teach nothing and do not oblige people to believe anything.
That alone, among a thousand reasons, is enough to show that Islam will not be able to hold its power long in an age of enlightenment and democracy, while Christianity is destined to reign in such age, as in all others."
Italian journalist Oriana Fallaci interviewed Iran's Ayatollah Khomeini in 1979:
Oriana Fallaci: "Women ... cannot study at the university with men, they cannot work with men, they cannot swim in the sea or in a swimming-pool with men. They have to do everything separately, wearing their 'chador.' By the way, how can you swim wearing a 'chador'?"
Ayatollah Khomeini: "None of this concerns you, our customs do not concern you."
Oriana Fallaci wrote in The Force of Reason (2004):
"Europe becomes more and more a province of Islam, a colony of Islam.
And Italy is an outpost of that province, a stronghold of that colony.
In each of our cities lies a second city: a Muslim city, a city run by the Quran.
A stage in the Islamic expansionism."
On July 15, 2011, the OIC received the support of U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Clinton at a meeting in Istanbul, Turkey, for the purpose of passing U.N. Resolution 16/18 denying freedom of speech and freedom of religion to anyone who insults Islam, effectively subjecting the whole world under dhimmi status.
