Fresh from the WTF file

This item is a bit dated, but is still relevant given the recent violence in the Middle East. From the Wall Street Journal's web-based editorial page on April 16, 2002:
The United Nations Human Rights Commission has endorsed Palestinian terrorism and denounced Israel for defending itself, Canada's National Post reports. By a 40-5 vote, the commission approved a resolution approving of "all available means, including armed struggle" to establish a Palestinian state. The resolution makes no exception for terrorism. (Emphasis added)
This is the same United Nations that was awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2001. It is not difficult to see how much the deck has already been stacked against Israel!

EDIT: Here is the original text of the resolution.
