Anne Bayefsky wrote about how, as Ban Ki-Moon supposedly pays his condolences to Jewish Holocaust victims, the UN he's in charge of does quite the opposite:
On Friday, November 15, 2013, an official UN-accredited Jewish non-governmental organization had its security clearance to attend an open UN meeting in New York revoked at the behest of the UN Division for Palestinian Rights.

The group of 18 Birthright Israel alumni had been invited to witness the annual offensive “UN Day of Solidarity with the Palestinian People” by the UN-accredited Touro Institute on Human Rights and the Holocaust.

The annual event marks the anniversary of November 29, 1947, the day that the UN General Assembly adopted a resolution which partitioned Palestine into a Jewish and an Arab state. It was a resolution accepted by Jews and rejected across the Arab world.

It was also a day celebrated by the victims of the Nazis and the Jewish people in their ancient homeland and around the world.

But not by the modern United Nations. Former secretary-general Kofi Annan characterized it as “a day of mourning and a day of grief,” and every year under UN auspices, member states and NGOs gather to mourn the creation of the Jewish state.
The man who had a hand in the oil-for-food scandal apparently sides with the propagandists who push the myth of "al-nakba". I'm guessing he and they don't care about Armenian victims of the Ottoman empire, by contrast. I really don't see why anybody with common sense should waste their time at the UN cesspool. It's badly in need of a good bowl cleaner.
